Destination Weddings

La Mesita Ranch Estate is one of the most exclusive, and extraordinary destination wedding venues, and private luxury accommodation in the American Southwest.

 

Still undiscovered, La Mesita sits upon 140 sprawling acres of native land surrounded by three mountain ranges, its own Equestrian Center, an ancient mesa, endless fields of alfalfa, a huge pool with flagstone pool deck, sunsets that make your heart sing, and its own serene duck pond and nature reserve.

 

These “backdrops” and amenities within and surrounding the Estate are nothing short of spectacular.

 

There are so many beautiful enclaves that make for beautiful ceremony sites all over the property, it makes it almost impossible to decide what part of the property “speaks to you”, yet every area is unique, and sacred in its own way. You will be reeling from the decision making ahead of you.

 

The property welcomes you with its bronze “Butterfly Dancer” by the revered Native sculptor George Rivera, and then introduces you slowly, to Ancient Cottonwoods, endless lavender, 124 flower pots, that when in season are a profusion of color like nothing you have ever seen or imagined.

 

There are two Italian inspired fountains, an organic vegetable and herb garden, inner hidden courtyards, patios, green sprawling lawns….. The beauty of La Mesita is endless. It is almost too impossible to believe that this extraordinary private Estate is only 17 minutes from downtown Santa Fe. You and your guests will be well aware that you are a million miles away from anything “ordinary”. La Mesita promises a unique, profound, and unforgettable guest stay, and Wedding experience.

 

La Mesita Ranch Estate is owned by the Pueblo of Pojoaque and its five historic, gracious homes reflect and are indeed steeped in the region’s unique and rich history, art, and design. If it is the quintessential Northern New Mexico, you are wanting to experience as the backdrop for your Wedding, coupled with the culture of the native people of Pojoaque and its unique and diverse landscape, you will certainly be amidst everything you have been searching for.

 

If it is an intimate guest stay with friends and family, in an epic outdoor southwestern native setting, with fields, gardens, fountains, ponds, sunsets, flavors of New Mexico, patios overlooking the Barranca Mountains, all leading up to the most anticipated day of your life…. come find us.

Unlike many other wedding venues, La Mesita Ranch works with some of the most amazing Chefs, and trusted Catering partners in the Santa Fe area. We are able to offer our clients a large variety of custom options.

As La Mesita is a private residence, and not a Catering company, we are able to open up your opportunities to work with the best, and most talented Catering companies in the area.

Another amazing opportunity for all of you who value the experience of serving fine wines at your Wedding, is that when hosting an event or Wedding at La Mesita, you have the ability to purchase your own wine, beer, and spirits, and bring them onto property.

What may be one of the most unique qualities of the “La Mesita experience”, is that when reserving the Estate, you reserve the entire estate. You and your guests will be the only guests on property.. There is really nothing else quite like this. Why would you want to share your extraordinary wedding day with anyone except your invited friends and family?

Oh.. Sorry, we almost forgot… you will indeed be sharing the Estate with with 28 others, who look just a little bit different than you.

We have 28 gorgeous and amazing hunter/ jumpers, but they all have their own little homes in one of the two stables on property!

Our house manager is also on the far side of the property, just in case you might need something…

La Mesita features four distinct sophisticated cottages, and one Grande Hacienda. In total, the Estate features ten bedrooms, ten fireplaces, fifteen bathrooms, butler’s pantry, massage room, kitchens, washer dryers, living rooms, dining rooms, within these five homes, and can accommodate up to 22 of your guests. As far as the guest list on your Wedding day, La Mesita can accommodate up to 400 guests within its huge, epic, outdoor spaces.
