Love Notes
We had the pleasure of using the New Mexico Museum of Art for our wedding ceremony in the middle of October. Charlene and her team did an excellent job communicating all details and expectations with us to ensure our special day was smooth. The outdoor courtyard proved to be a beautiful location to have our wedding, and it allowed for a very intimate and memorable ceremony for us and our guests.

Our wedding at the Museum was a magical experience. Everything from the ambience to their staff’s attention to detail was first-class. If you dream of a storybook desert wedding, look no further!

Charlene and her amazing team at the New Mexico Museum of Art helped us to create our dream wedding venue. Being from out of state, we were not able to see the space in person before we booked. However, this didn’t stop the team at MOA from exceeding our expectations. All emails were answered timely, we were sent floor plans to map out the space, and we got to tour the venue (finally!) as soon as we arrived in town even though it was after hours. The flowers were in full bloom on the day of the ceremony and every single person at the wedding commented on how beautiful the space was. When it comes to wedding venues, I cannot think of a better option than the MOA. Thank you, Charlene and team!

My husband and I are so grateful that we were finally able to get married at the New Mexico Museum of Art! We postponed our (out-of-state) wedding twice to comply with COVID safety measures and then again, a third time once I found out I was pregnant with our first. Despite all the hiccups and our major surprise, we loved the opportunity to finally be with all our friends and family in such a beautiful and enchanted environment. Charlene Carroll, the venue’s event manager repeatedly eased our concerns by accommodating the changes, making excellent recommendations, and connecting us with a team of people who truly helped make our day beautiful.

Last June, my partner and I were married at MOA. The beautiful venue was a highlight of the memory. It was wonderful to be married in the courtyard and each of the spaces at the museum are warm and inviting. All in all, we’d recommend this venue to any couples looking to have a charming Santa Fe wedding.
