    Our entire wedding experience was so easy and stress free because of the excellent staff at Sandia. Stephanie, the wedding coordinator, is truly the BEST. Their responsiveness and ability to calm our nerves was above any expectation. The venue is incomparable with views and beauty. Our food was delicious and the staff was excellent. I hope we can use Sandia again in the future for another party!!!

    Ana and the team at Sandia Casino & Resort are fantastic! Ana discussed every detail with us with patience and understanding. Planning a wedding can be daunting but Ana always made everything better.

    The views of the Sandia Mountains are amazing. We had looked at A LOT of other places in Albuquerque and didn't find another venue that came close to the view they have.

    The team made us feel like family and were there to support us throughout the whole process. Never having planned a wedding before I had a lot of questions and Ana was there to answer every one and took the time to make sure we were happy. We live out of state but we were still able to work remotely with Ana on all the details. She was quick to respond to emails and my calls. I don't know how she does it and always with a positive attitude.

    I would highly recommend Sandia Casino & Resort for your big day. Go and visit and ask for Ana Torres, you'll see what I mean. :)

    Sandia Resort is a great place to have your wedding ceremony. They have two sites, close to each other, on the patio and the new pergola. Both have the fantastic view of the Sandia Mountains as a backdrop, along with the stunning grounds. Sandia staff are beyond competent and present to the couple every step of the way. They are detailed oriented and try to anticipate each step of the wedding planning so that the couple will not be surprised but have a smooth flow each step of the way. I have nothing but the best to say about Sandia Resort and its wedding staff.
