    Weddings at the Flying J Ranch

    The entire staff at the FJR is absolutely wonderful. Every one of them are kind people that are willing to work with whatever you need. The couple in charge of weddings, Micky and Emily, are wonderful hosts that are as flexible as they are helpful. My wife and I could not have asked for better people to work with. We highly recommend this place for your consideration.

    Wonderfully Beautiful & Lacking Nothing!!

    The Flying J was absolutely the Best Venue we could have Ever found in Ruidoso NM. Emily Hobbs & her Husband & the whole staff at Flying J were Absolutely lovely to work with. They had everything that we needed & we were able to create the perfect day. The Flying J is so Beautiful on it's own, you really don't even really need decorations. The food & pies were all so delicious. All of our Guest wanted for nothing!! They have a Beautiful Green meadow, that is always in the shade, plenty of room for a small or Big Wedding!! I can't say enough Great things too say!! I Highly recommend Flying J for your Wedding Day!!

    Flying J Ranch's reply:

    Thank you Angela! We so enjoyed getting to know you and your family through the planning process! You and your guests were so pleasant, we were so happy to be able to host you!
