Set among 25 acres of lavender fields, enormous cottonwood trees and lush formal gardens, Los Poblanos is one of the most stunning properties in the Southwest to host a special wedding celebration. From the minute you drive down the long tree-lined allée flanked by fields of lavender and rows of vegetables, you know you are in a special place. There are countless venues on the farm estate to host your ceremony and reception, whether it’s the lush historic gardens at the Hacienda or the grand portico at La Quinta, an architectural gem that boasts sweeping views of the mountains.
In the heart of the Rio Grande River Valley in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, Los Poblanos offers a wide variety of outdoor spaces. The unmatched variety of outdoor gardens, architectural detail and historic New Mexican elegance provides a backdrop for an outdoor wedding or gathering with little need for added decoration. The formal Spanish-style gardens were designed in 1932 by Rose Greely, a pioneer female landscape architect. Around every corner, one can find vibrant flower beds irrigated with river water, Spanish tile fountains, rose cutting gardens, winding pathways and a wonderfully shaded drive lined with gorgeous mature cottonwoods.
Led by Chef Jonathan Perno, a native New Mexican three-time James Beard award nominee, our award-winning field-to-fork dining is seasonally driven, influenced by the fresh ingredients from our organic farm and is indigenous to New Mexico. Inspired by the day’s harvest, Los Poblanos cuisine wanders the line between rugged and refined. Located in the Rio Grande River Valley, private dining at Los Poblanos features the purest field-to-fork menu in the Southwest in one of the most spectacular settings. Our Rio Grande River Valley Cuisine is not only rooted in seasonal organic ingredients from our own farm, but also from longstanding relationships with local farmers and herdsman. Fresh ingredients are our focus and our passion. We love what we do and we believe that you can taste that in our cooking.
Our guest rooms and suites exhibit classic New Mexican style with original artwork, carved ceiling beams, hardwood floors and antique southwest furnishings. All bedrooms have luxurious organic bedding and feature our signature lavender spa amenities. The Meem rooms and suites are located in the historic and renovated hacienda designed by New Mexico’s most important architect, John Gaw Meem. A style attributed to him, the “Territorial Revival” rooms include 1930s revival tin light fixtures, hand-carved beams, ironwork, hardwood floors, hand plastered walls and fireplaces and period New Mexican artwork. The Farm and Field rooms and suites are in 1930s dairy-style buildings with pitched tin roofs and white stuccoed walls. Interiors are clean and simple with a modern feel and feature hardwood floors, original artwork and incredible views.
Small-batch Los Poblanos lavender apothecary and culinary offerings are lovely gifts or favors directly connected to the land itself. Farm favorites include our lavender salve and mist, lavender honey and seasonal culinary treats can be incorporated into any celebration.

Los Poblanos was the only place we considered for our daughter's wedding and it was perfect. You are restricted somewhat to around 120 people inside but we were fine with that. The staff was incredibly professional on the day of the wedding. The food was impeccable, the waitstaff was efficient and perfect and the wedding coordinator, Shae, helped us plan and readjust before the day of the wedding so the day was just perfect. The new rooms at the inn made it a true destination wedding as 2/3 of the guests were from out of town. They all loved that the ceremony and reception as well as their rooms were all in one place. I would do it all over again and have my daughter's wedding at Los Poblanos. It was perfect!!

Fairytale wedding! We knew we wanted to get married here before we were even engaged. The entire staff was super attentive, professional and accommodating. Every single person there knew who we were and congratulated us all weekend. The food was amazing. The grounds are gorgeous and provide endless photo backdrops. Shaelyn, the event coordinator, went above and beyond for us and was just a dream to work with. We got so many compliments from our guests, telling us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. BEST VENUE EVER! We can't wait to return for our one year anniversary! - Catie & Spencer

What an amazing venue!! I fell in love with this place from the first time I set foot on the property. It feels like you are out of town even though you are in the middle of the city. The architecture of the buildings and the surrounding gardens are gorgeous! It is definitely a venue that requires very little in the way of providing your own decor; the venue speaks for itself. The areas where the cocktail hour and reception where held were perfect!
The food was amazing! I was really happy with our preview tastings, but I was completely blown away by the food on the actual day of the wedding. Everything down to the dinner rolls was delicious! Every guest I've talked to since the wedding can't stop talking about how it was the best food they've ever eaten. We also heard back from guests that the wine and beer selection was great too!
All of the staff we worked with was super friendly and very professional. Shaeyln, the coordinator, was so helpful and attentive throughout the entire process. She was able to handle all of my questions and concerns and helped to make the entire planning process and the day of the wedding run smoothly. She even helped to calm my nerves when I got worried about the extreme heat for our outdoor reception ( it was the first day of an unusual week-long heat wave). Los Poblanos takes care of the big stuff like tables, linens, food, beverages, cake, as well as some of the smaller things like cute wedding signage for directing your guests. They even include a room at the Inn for the night of the wedding and let me say, the rooms and restaurant were absolutely amazing! My husband and I plan on celebrating our anniversary here for years to come! The venue is one of the more pricey in the area, but it is worth EVERY penny, hands down. Los Poblanos delivered in every way and I guarantee you will not regret choosing them for your venue!
Los Poblanos is a beautiful venue for your special event, wedding, reception, or any other special occasion! The food is marvelous and the staff is wonderful to work with. Highly recommended!
