River Paradise Weddings

Highway 68, Embudo, NM
Max Capacity: 100 people
Our venue is a unique setting bordering the Rio Grande River on 2 acres of lush green grass and trees. There are stairs leading directly from the river to the lawn, to a flower lined, grassy aisle that opens onto the riverside ceremony space. Should you want a "fantasy" arrival via riverboat… your guests can stand along the riverbank to greet you as you float by and then take their seats for your entry into the ceremony space. We provide a list of established caterers and photographers or we can connect you to a wedding planner if you prefer. We do not provide tables or set-up, but we have ample facilities for all your needs, such as stringing lights or music/entertainment set-up. A dance floor is required and can be rented nearby. Tents are welcome but are not supplied, although some of our couples have a small tent on hand in case of a sprinkle. Most prefer an outdoor event that goes into the sunset with dining and dancing in the open air along the riverfront. Parking can be onsite or nearby with shuttle service. There are many lovely bed and breakfasts nearby for your guests' accommodations and two acclaimed local wineries to visit for tasting. You may also raft down the river directly to our property, take the steps from the river to the lawn, and turn on the grill! This is a great idea for an "after rehearsal" treat. We look forward to booking your ceremony and at our venue and helping you plan the wedding of your dreams. Please email us or give us a call for an appointment to view the property!
