La Fonda on the Plaza: Santa Fe, New Mexico

Plan your dream wedding at La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe, New Mexico. La Fonda is the only hotel on the historic plaza, making it a sought-after venue for local and destination weddings alike! And with a four-hundred-year history, this luxury hotel has definitely earned its top stop among the best in the nation. If you want to have a truly authentic southwest wedding, La Fonda is the way to go! From the the luxurious Bridal Suite to La Terraza, everything about La Fonda beautifully and effortlessly showcases the best New Mexico has to offer.

Just imagine, you and your bridal party getting dolled up in your luxurious Bridal Suite atop La Fonda, while your beau and his crew get spiffy across the way. Before you make it official, however, you sneak up on your hubby-to-be for your intimate first look in front of The Terrace fountain. After you part ways, you reunite with your bridal party to await your grand entrance. While you wait, your heart starts to race as the live music signals your cue. You slowly walk down the aisle with all eyes on you as your soon-to-be hubby tries to hold back tears.

After what seems like an eternity, you finally make it to the altar on The Terrace overlooking the Loretto Chapel, where you say, “I do.” Once you’re officially announced Mr. and Mrs., you exit hand in hand to the sound of cheers and well wishes. And like so many happy coupes before, you parade around the plaza announcing your union to the masses, complete with a musical procession as well as friends and family in tow. As you make your way back to La Fonda you lead your parade of guests to La Terraza Event Room, where you proceed to celebrate over your first gourmet dinner as man and wife.
