    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!!

    Lose all the extra vendors and go with this "one-stop-shop!"

    James and everyone at the Flying J could NOT have been any more wonderful throughout the entire wedding process! This venue provided the space, chairs, tables, set up, speakers, AND fed our 200 guests in about 15 minutes; It was literally a one-stop shop minus the photographer. (Seriously, I don't know how brides deal with caterers, rentals, DJs, and so many more vendors!) That made everything so much easier and fun! They met every request, the landscaping was so beautiful we hardly needed any decor, and they even provided fiddle and guitar players for sweet music during our ceremony!

    (We also had trouble finding somewhere to host our very-large family rehearsal dinner, and they swept right in for that and provided a completely different, and delicious (Prime-Rib) meal the night before! They were friendly, affordable and made our day absolutely perfect. I just can't express enough how thankful I am to have found the Flying J for our wedding!
