New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment! One of the most “enchanting” things that happens at Hacienda Vargas are weddings. More wedding proposals are made during the holidays, from Thanksgiving thru Valentine’s Day than any time of the year. Although we host weddings year round, weddings in the winter in the Hacienda Vargas chapel are one of the most enchanting things you will ever experience, whether it be an impromptu wedding, a planned elopement, commitment ceremony or vow renewal!
With its stained glass windows and earthen floor, our chapel is perfect for just the couple and their witnesses, or it can accommodate 15 – 20 friends and family. We’ve hosted a plethora of memorable ceremonies from the most traditional to the truly unique.
A recent wedding in the chapel had 12 people in attendance in the true Southwest tradition, complete with western attire and a sand ceremony to celebrate a new, blended family. The “icing on the cake,” so to speak, may be a candelight dinner in your suite if it is just the couple, or a New Mexican dinner specially prepared for your friends and family and served in the La Sala along with an exquisite miniature wedding cake served in the Bay Window Room and a roaring fire in the Kiva fireplace.
After the vows, the couple can retire to their own romantic room complete with double jacuzzi tub and kiva fireplace. If there are guests, they, too may spend the night in their own room with private entrance, private bath and fireplaces. Everyone will be treated with a heartwarming, homemade breakfast the following morning. What an enchanting way to start your new life together!
