About Blame Her Ranch

Blame Her Ranch was voted the Best Venue in New Mexico by Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Abroad Magazine and received the Couple Choice Award 2020 from Wedding Wire! Let me tell you why...

First, we are not a typical venue. Blame Her Ranch is the home of Steve and Linda Blamer, who started renting their ranch for weddings after their daughter’s wedding in 2017. Multiple vendors came to us after the event and said, “ you have to rent this ranch.” And here we are! We love welcoming couples into our home.

BHR is unlike any other place as we sleep 24+. Imagine having your entire wedding party staying with you during your event weekend. Additionally, we have 4 indoor/outdoor venues for your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, or cocktail hour! This basically gives BHR an automatic weather back-up for your big day, if you need it... nobody offers that in New Mexico.

Besides our amazing venues, we have fantastic amenities for you to enjoy and relax leading up to your big day. Enjoy our tranquil cliff-front sunset patio which features multiple day beds, seating, umbrellas, and a one-of-a-kind fire feature. Catch a swim in our custom made pool, take a steam in our cliff-front sauna and cauldron hot tub, or get your sweat on in our fabulous gym featuring Peloton’s bike and treadmill. And don’t forget to explore our full 1,650 acres and the Santa Fe National Forest which is right next door on our two ATVs and mountain bikes!

Let me tell you why we are different than other venues, and most importantly, how BHR saves you money! First, we let you decide how you want to cater your wedding from home cooking to food trucks to outdoor BBQ to a formal sit down dinner. It is all up to you to decide while other venues force you to use their caterers and thereby charge you more. Just as important, all beverages and bar service is at your discretion which can save you thousands of dollars vs. paying the high-priced hotel or catering liquor bills. Plus, we never charge resort fees, parking, gratuity, or food/beverage charges. Also, with our lodging option, we have no cutoff times. Most venues shut down the party down at 10 p.m., but at BHR if you want to party till 4 a.m., be our guest!

Another benefit of booking at BHR is that we offer a free 4-hour photo day for you and your photographer on any available date of your choosing. It’s a great way to do either engagement photos or to take photos a few days after your event so you can actually enjoy your special day without feeling rushed. And you’ll have some real time to explore and take some epic cliff shot photos (see some examples in our album).

A single day on a Wednesday in the off-season can be as little as $5,400! However, most people stay 3 nights on the weekend. In the peak-season, we average around $17,000 including cleaning and taxes (after a 10% discount by booking within 30 days of your inquiry). While a 3-night weekend in the off-season averages $13,500. Additionally, we only request 10% down while most other locations require 25%!

Additionally, with our optional in-house invoicing program, we can directly bill anyone you want to stay at the ranch, so your lodging costs can drop by $4,500, and we do all the work to collect the money.

While some venues require you to hire a wedding planner, we don’t, but we do have a personal ranch-concierge that can help you save thousands of dollars on your catering, music, dance floor, and other wedding costs from other suppliers we work with. You truly benefit from how we’ve helped other couples save thousands by choosing the right people for your special day.

Finally, the ranch now has two Conestoga Wagons that can be offered/billed to other wedding guests so more people can enjoy the ranch during your stay. Each wagon sleeps 4 people and brings your total sleeping capacity to 32. Two shower houses and full bathrooms are just steps away from the wagons and everything (including the Wagons) has air conditioning and heating. Talk about 5-Star Glamping... BHR has it.

We cannot wait to welcome you to BHR. Come enjoy our views, relax, and have a wonderful event!

    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.

    Amanda...
    People ask us all the time, "Why would you want a bunch of strangers in your home?"
    Just read this review and you will understand why. It makes it all worth it when we see great weddings like yours at our ranch. Amanda, we loved having you, your groom and families at BHR. We hope you guys have nothing but happiness in the years ahead. Please stay in touch and let's see more of those great pictures.
    And yes Randy is the best!

4 Wedding Deals & Discounts

  • Blame Her Ranch 1
    $4,500 Credit with Invoicing Program

    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.
