About Blame Her Ranch

COVID-19 UPDATE

Blame Her Ranch along with many other venues have been postponing weddings and events back. Many 2020 weddings are moving to 2021 and of course, all those wanting a 2021 wedding are now competing for availability both here and at other venues. So in order to help those reaching out to us, we are providing the following for a short period of time:

  • A virtual and complete tour of the ranch on our website until state guidelines allow personal, one on one tours. https://blameherranch.com/tour-the-ranch/
  • 10% off our standard published rates if you book within 30 days of your inquiry.
  • A small deposit of only 10% (normally we require 50%) for anyone willing to lock in their dates and go to contract within 30 days of inquiring.
  • Personal, over the phone concierge services, where we can help you save thousands of dollars on your catering, music, dance floor, and other wedding costs from other suppliers we work with.

But, you need to move quickly so you can secure your date as well as receive these discounts and preferred booking offers. Additionally, with over 1620 acres, BHR has many world-class locations for breathtaking photographs. But you’ll need to use our extra, free 4 hour photo day so you and your photographer have the extra time to get to our special locations in order to capture images you’ll enjoy for years. Alternatively, you can use this for your engagement photos! BHR is much more than just a wedding venue and unlike our competitors, you have full access to some of the best sunsets and filming sites in NM, for free.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blame Her Ranch is a luxury ranch wedding venue located outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The ranch sleeps 24 of your closest family or wedding party allowing everyone to stay and party exclusively in one place—no outsiders, just you. BHR offers four venues for each of your wedding events. They give clients total flexibility with little or no limits on how you want to cater to your different events, provide bar service, or force you into some predetermined cut off times. These advantages save its clients thousands of dollars with one set price and no surprises like resort fees or food & beverage surcharges. 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. Because of its beauty and southwestern charm, the ranch is a Hollywood favorite and film site for the Netflix TV series “Longmire.”

Check out the PDF file in our Pricing Section! It includes our...

  • Standard Rate Sheet (be sure to check out our bonus offer: half the rate on Thursday and Monday is Free when you book Friday, Saturday, and Sunday).
  • Guest invoicing program which can save you as much as $4,500 off our rate sheet prices.
  • The 13 reasons couples give us for why they book at BHR.
  • A comparison worksheet that shows BHR vs. several other venues in New Mexico plus an additional column for you to compare any other site vs. BHR.
  • BHR vs. Top Competitors. This shows BHR is the best value in New Mexico. We have practically no restrictions on catering, cut off times, and other important elements that our competitors require you to commit to. You’ll find many venues are not as transparent as BHR and simply nickel and dime you to death which can add thousands of dollars to your final bill.

    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.
