The southwestern sun might be shining bright today, but there’s an undeniable chill in the air! One that invokes warm cups of caffeinated euphoria, cozy knitwear, and roaring fireplaces — all of which we’re currently enjoying here, in the WCNM headquarters. 

So before you dive into the long-awaited part 2 of our wedding trailblazers of New Mexico series, grab your coffee and get comfy.

We’re staying snug with the heart-warming endeavors of these workers in love — the local wedding professionals who are elevating the industry and making dreams come true on a regular basis. First featured in our always-free, always-adorable print magazine, this particular spread is close to our hearts because the people who make up our collective mean everything to us.

Snag your copy of the magazine from one of our 500+ vendor-friends in New Mexico or have a copy mailed to your door to get the first look at features like this one! Keep scrolling to meet the traiblazers, explore their work, or drop them a line.

True changemakers have a deep connection to the reason they are blazing an untraveled path in the first place — often, it’s to create new opportunities for others in their community.

ABQ Party Coach

Over the last 24 years, PartyTime DJ and Event Services LLC (est. 2016, formerly PartyTime Entertainment, est. 1998) has continually improved our customers’ wedding experience by consistently investing in the latest DJ technology. Setup efficiency and reasonable rates were always a concern, and that limited the standard growth of a DJ Company (photo booth, TVs, etc). Then the owner of PartyTime DJ, Thomas Prando, teamed up with Jose Luis Ibarra to create the nightclub on wheels, and ABQ Party Coach was created.
