My husband and I had our wedding at the Inn and Spa at Loretto on 12/31/15. Everything was SPECTACULAR. As we had a NYE wedding and expected guests to have the longevity to celebrate into the new year, we opted to have a later than normal ceremony. We were married at 8pm. As such we chose to do heavy hors d'oeuvres and two late night food bars. I, personally, had never been to a wedding that didn't do a seated dinner and wasn't sure exactly how that would work logistically. Their Events Services Manager, Lesley Escobar, not only completely understood my vision but helped to facilitate every single details. She even made suggestions to add a large puff pastry wrapped baked brie and made suggestions as to how to facilitate both seating and high top tables for a lounge-y NYE feel. Lesley was extremely easy to get in touch with throughout the 8 months of planning. We chose to have our rehearsal dinner here as well and the Chef made a personalized dish based on my request for an upscale, modern twist on traditional New Mexican food. We had pinon encrusted pork chops and red chile pesto chicken that was out of this world. The Plaza on NYE was packed as you can imagine but they waived the typical valet fee and provided affordable room rates for the guests. I could go on and on about our experience but bottom line is that the venue is gorgeous- in fact it was rated 2nd best hotel in ALL of the Southwest and best hotel in New Mexico by Conde Nast Traveler this year. We got married during the winter which not only made it cheaper, but allowed us to have photos with New Mexico's gorgeous luminaria/farolitos. Lesley absolutely made the experience what it was. I experienced 0 stress the day of the wedding because I felt so confident in the work Lesley had put in on the front end. I highly highly recommend this venue.

Everything that weekend was awesome. Our guest loved the hospitality. We loved the quality of service we got all around. The only mishap was that the leftover wedding cake (not the top tier) was dropped the day after the event and couldn't be salvaged but we are getting a certificate for their restaurant
