BHR offers four venues for each of your wedding events.

Situated at the southern part of Glorieta Mesa, a 50-minute ride from Santa Fe, the ranch’s entire western side offers majestic 70-mile views of the Santa Fe National Forest and overlooks the Gonzales Valley.

This is the best wedding venue in the world-- understatement of the century
I can not emphasize how amazing our wedding was at this venue! Randy (day of coordinator) made everything run PERFECTLY and it was absolutely gorgeous being there in mid-September. We spent the weekend at the ranch with our wedding party and it was really nice and relaxing being able to have the time to set up, hang out, and enjoy the pool/hot tub/skeet shooting/movie theater/golf "driving range". It felt like we were truly at home when we arrived, and there was so much space for our guests that stayed at the ranch for the weekend (24) to sleep comfortably. Randy set up gorgeous lights, tables and the dance floor in the lawn area the day before the wedding so it wasn't rushed with vendors arriving which was great. Speaking of vendors-- Randy got all of the contact information from them and did great with coordinating arrival times so we didn't have to worry about it at all. During the planning process the communication was top-notch, and the owners/Randy were very open to us visiting the ranch whenever we requested to help with our "wedding vision" and planning out the setup that we wanted. If you choose to book this venue be prepared that it's about an hour outside of Santa Fe, but it is 100% worth it in terms of the beauty and customization of the wedding day. I would say this is a venue perfect for a couple that is ready to do a lot of planning to make a day "your own" if you don't get a planner. We booked shuttles for transportation for our guests (Road Runner Shuttle--top notch) from Santa Fe (Blocked a hotel at Santa Fe Sage Inn-- affordable for guests and great location), got a food truck/buffet vendor for a more casual dinner service (Palate Food Truck, Real Burger Catering-- both amazing), port-a potties, hired bartenders, ordered kegs from Tractor Brewing/got Costco wine, got our DJ (complete weddings), had live music from the Gershom Brothers, and decided to do our own flowers from whole sale. (PS--special shout out to Dham Khalsa photography-- don't get me started on how perfect they made the whole process, seriously) That being said, I am really happy we chose to do that rather than being constrained by the typical wedding venues with "price per person" and a set menu for food/beverages. We had about 180 guests and the venue comfortably held them (capacity 250). We did a pre-wedding cocktail hour in the barn by the ceremony space as the guests arrived in shuttles and then had our rehearsal in the lawn area/house. The natural beauty of the ranch allowed for us to have to do minimal decorating (basic table settings and decorated the ceremony arch with greenery/flowers) and it was flawless. We have gotten so many compliments from our guests talking about how it was the most beautiful wedding venue they've ever seen (I know, everybody says that, haha), and how a few of our engaged couple-friends want to "steal" it and use it for their own wedding. If we could re-do our wedding day (I wish), I would choose Blame Her Ranch over, and over, and over again. You guys made the best day of our life so special, thank you so much.Sent on 10/12/2019

Blame Her Ranch Price Rates
We can issue invoices to your guests staying at the ranch and collect the payments on your behalf. If 20 of your guests (out of the 24 that can sleep over) paid $75/night (you can set any price you wish), that would pay for $4,500 of the venue fee. While you would still be responsible for the deposit upfront and the remaining balance if a guest doesn't pay, this can be an attractive alternative. A Thursday, Friday, Saturday stay in the peak-season would run $15,399.45 (including the cleaning fee and tax), but through our invoicing program, the price would drop to $10,899.45.
Book your stay with us and we'll give you a free 4-hour photo session that can be used for your engagement photos or extra time after your wedding so you don't have to worry about getting back to the reception.
Book your stay with us within 30 days of reaching out and we'll give you 10% off of the venue rates.
