About

On WeddingWire since 2017

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 44+. 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 without additional fees.

Not only does BHR have fantastic accommodations in our main lodge and barn, but additionally, we feature glamping options. We have two Conestoga Wagons, an authentic Tipi, and coming in 2022 two brand new Airstream Bambis. Each feature luxury furnishings, linens, and decor!

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 2,000+ 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).

We offer multiple packages that help you decide what works for you on your special day. You can choose either 3 or 5+ night stays and choose if you want to include all our additional glamping accommodations at a discounted rate. More information on pricing can be found on your website. Additionally, we only request 10% down while most other locations require 25%!

We also offer single-day events during the week. However, most people choose the multi-night package to really capture the full scope of BHR!

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 immensely 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.

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

Perfect BHR Wedding

Blame Her Ranch was a magical, beautiful, fun place for our wedding! It was everything we dreamed of and more. The entire property perfectly accommodated our guests for the weekend and had tons of places for people to hangout and enjoy their time. We spent lots of good family time in the barn every day for meals, dancing, and games. Randy the Ranch Manager was incredible! He was always available when we needed help or had questions, was always so kind, definitely a hard worker, and was easily recognized as an important piece of making the ranch such a special place! The cold sparks from Randy’s rentals made our first dance unforgettable. We don’t know how the weekend could’ve been any more perfect. BHR will always be an important place in our hearts and memories!
