Venue Spotlight: Encantado Resort in Santa Fe
If you've ever thought of having a desert oasis wedding, you absolutely have to check out Encantado Resort in Santa Fe. The property is a typical Auberge Resort, encompassing the luxury hotel brand's reputation for creating places that are private, secluded and luxurious while still having a very down to earth, natural and welcoming setting. The beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains mark the surrounding skyline and the grounds of the resort are rich in the natural beauty uniquely New Mexico.
What we really love about Encantado is the peaceful atmosphere that almost seems to transport you to another world. Being the city folk we are, it's such an amazing feeling to escape and run out to the desert to relax. There are 65 small villas, or casitas, as they call them, on the property. So, it's a perfect size for a destination wedding if you're planning an escape for about 130 guests.
Also, we love how modern and simple the property is. Everything is made up of clean, modern lines with plenty of white walls and natural wood. It's a wedding planner's dream canvas.
Anyway, we're just dying over all the property has to offer, both as a hotel and as a wedding venue. Seems like the perfect long weekend getaway to us. Check out the photos and let us know what you think!
