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.
