Red River is a Fairytale Setting for Your Wedding

The town of Red River congratulates you on your upcoming wedding. It’s a big event in your life and your own unique style can be displayed right here for your lifetime wedding. Imagine the brisk mountain breeze blowing through your hair, the view from the mountain tops, or the tranquil sounds of the Red River for your backdrop. A mountain wedding venue can be yours in beautiful Red River.

With the relaxing atmosphere, the thought of pre-wedding jitters won’t happen here. We have too much to keep you focused on during your special time. Imagine all the fun and memories you will make here with your friends that came with you -  and some new ones you are likely to meet as well. Your go-to lodging in Red River has partnered with KWK Events planning and they will make sure everything goes perfectly for your fairytale wedding.

Pre-Wedding Events are Memorable in Red River

A variety of venues around town are available for the wedding rehearsal dinners. The two restaurants that are at the top of our list for rehearsal dinners would be Capo’s and Sundance. Capo’s has a great location! They are located at the base of the mountain near the platinum chair.  Might I suggest their Bona Mangiata, it is bursting with flavor! After having an amazing meal and practicing what you plan on saying at the actual reception, take a moment and grab a few pics with the river as your perfect backdrop. If you’re not in the mood for pictures, then just take in the sounds of the river next to the delicious aromas coming from Capo’s kitchen.

If you want something with less foot traffic, then you will want to check out Sundance on High Street. It’s just down the road from Williams Trading Post and Hardware. In my humble opinion, they make some of the best fajitas in the entire state of New Mexico!!!!  

Just remember if you are having a large party, you will need to contact these restaurants in advance so they can be sure to accommodate your party.

Back in Red River, a bachelor party at The Bull o’ the Woods will give you a send-off into matrimony in Red River style. For the ladies, no bachelorette party would be complete without a trip to The Motherlode Saloon. Since everything is in walking distance, you could do a pub crawl (sorry, no drinking on the streets) from here to Red River Brewing Company, and back to Double Dog Inn before your self-appointed curfew.

If you’re not interested in a wild night with brews and brods, how about taking your wedding party fishing for the day or to Hidden Treasure Aerial Park for an afternoon of outdoor adventure? Your future nuptials will be an adventure as you join as one, so start off by seeking new heights before or after you say “I do.” Either way, your moments together will be breathtaking.  

The Big Event

Red River Conference Center is available for 10-700 people. If you prefer, KWK Events can arrange everything for you and your party right down to the groom’s boutonniere, the bride’s flowers, the minister or officiant, flowers, photography, catering and the cake… everything except the spouse… that you have to provide yourself!

Depending on the size of your party and guest list, The Double Dog Inn can house everyone in one place as well as other properties we have that are I Do friendly. What a great way to celebrate your special day all in one place with friends and family.

Whether you plan on having a quiet and intimate celebration at one of our designated properties, or a larger celebration at one of our mountain retreats like Casa Contenta, we are sure the memories you will make on your special day in Red River will be the memories of a lifetime.

Please be mindful that these are just the tip of the mountain ideas. We are great at helping you find the right rental, but when it comes to planning every detail and bringing your ideas to life, those kinds of tasks we leave up to the wedding professional; our pal Karen Kelly at KWK Events.

So grab the future Mr. or Mrs. and start planning your memorable mountain wedding.
