The New Year is always an exciting time – but for many couples around the country, it’s also the start of an entirely new journey. More couples get engaged around the holidays than any other time of year, which means as we round the corner into 2024, more couples will be planning weddings and elopements. If a New Mexico elopement is something you’ve been considering, we’re here to help! There’s no more romantic destination for your New Mexico elopement than our charming Bed and Breakfast New Mexico

For several years, wedding trends have been moving to smaller micro weddings and elopements. There are several reasons for this, of course. Budget is a factor, as the cost of a traditional large wedding with many friends and family has skyrocketed. More importantly, though, lessons of the past several years have taught us that it doesn’t matter how much we spend; what matters is that the celebration is reflective of a couple’s love and commitment. For some, there’s no better way to do that than by planning a simple, sweet, intimate New Mexico elopement.

Our Bed and Breakfast New Mexico focuses on these intimate ceremonies and provides an unforgettable backdrop to your special day. We specialize in these small ceremonies and excel in offering personalized experiences that are truly reflective of each couple’s individuality and relationship. Our New Mexico elopement package has everything you need to make your wedding day an unforgettable one – and, of course, our Bed and Breakfast New Mexico is the perfect place to kick off your honeymoon. 

If you’re interested in planning a New Mexico elopement in the coming year, reach out to us today for more information!

Plan the Best New Mexico Elopement

New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment for a reason. Enchanting, it is! It’s hard to describe in words, but there’s something mystical about the dramatic, wide-open landscapes and the rural simplicity of northern New Mexico. Beyond that, there’s an intangible energy running through the area – and these factors combined really do set the perfect stage for an unforgettable New Mexico elopement. 

One of the best things about eloping is leaving behind the stress and even drama that can come with planning a bigger wedding. When you choose our New Mexico elopement package, you get our dedication instead of the stress.
