5 Reasons Couples Pick Red River for Their Mountain Wedding

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials. It’s a big event in your life and it needs a special celebration.

The town of Red River offers some great venues for all the activities leading up to your celebration, including “The Big Day.” This will be a wedding like none other. Red River, NM has the flowers, caterer, music, cake, venue and an amazing backdrop for your special day!

The Scenery is Unbeatable

Red River is known for its beauty and breathtaking views. Imagine saying “I do” on top of the mountain at one of our properties with the mountain or river in the background, or next to the river so you hear the subtle sounds of the water flowing downstream. Depending on how big your ceremony is or how creative you want to be, the choices are limitless!

Some of the amazing things our wedding parties that have stayed with us have enjoyed are a toast at the Brass Rail, a private lift up to the top of the mountain to tie the knot, or agreeing to be one another’s one and only by the entrance of the covered bridge that crosses our peaceful river.

There’s Plenty To Do Both Day and Night

Red River Brewing Company, winner of the 2018-19 New Mexico’s Brewer of the Year Award, can quench your thirst. My personal favorite, Campfire Cream Ale, also won first place in the Sante Fe Open Brewing Competition. Twelve beers are on tap at any given time, and one very special root beer is available for the kiddos. Red River IS a kid-friendly town, and we are proud to say we like it that way.

Need something that is more active? How about a day of excitement and challenges at the local aerial park? This maze of ziplining, climbing and careful maneuvering should be plenty of fun for almost everyone on the list. We have found that many who elope in our mountain playground love to do this after they say “I do” to show they will follow one another anywhere they go – including a nice climb up a few breathtaking feet.  

Wedding Planning is a Breeze

KWK Events can arrange for your simple elopement or a larger guest list. Red River Conference Center can host up to 700 of your family and friends. Pick up your marriage license in Taos, N.M., the county seat, on your way. Taos is in the Enchanted Circle just 36 miles from Red River. Remember to return the signed documents back to the Clerk of Courts Office at the county seat once the ceremony is complete. That will make it official.

Whether you want to pre-celebrate with a private wine tasting, art demos or a guided horseback tour, KWK will be sure to have the connections to make it happen.

Family-Friendly Wedding Atmosphere

If your celebrations need to be low-key and family-friendly, some of our properties are designated for special occasions like your special day. The local event planner, KWK Events, can ensure what you need is supplied at the location of your choice, including a dancing area for guests to get down and boogie to your favorite tunes.

Plenty of Venues for Both Big and Small Celebrations

An outside wedding is perfect most of the year. Cracker Jack Crest offers a beautiful mountain backdrop for your outside wedding. If you prefer to get married on horseback, or have your knight in shining armor arrive on horseback (we can’t promise a white stallion), or get married in the snow-coach; all that can happen here too! Anywhere in the 84-mile Enchanted Circle can be the venue for your special day. You can dance the night away at the banks of the Red River right in town and walk to your honeymoon suite.

Imagine a romantic cottage in the woods for you and your betrothed, or a whole city block for your guests to await your arrival. Just pick out the dress or attire, the date, and, of course, your companion for life, and come on to the beautiful mountains of the Enchanted Circle. We’re called Enchanted for a reason. The magic and beauty of the mountains will offer wonderful wedding picture settings and memories you will cherish for a lifetime together. You don’t even have to leave to have your honeymoon! Red River is making its way into the world of destination wedding places for a reason.

Married and honeymoon…..all in one glorious place – Red River, New Mexico.
