Celebrate Your #BestDayEver at El Sueño Wedding Venue

A Charming Ruidoso Venue

Your engagement is finally Instagram official. That means you're looking for your dream wedding venue. El Sueño means "The Dream." If you're here, you're probably in search of a heavenly venue to start your Dream together.

Your special day deserves a special location. Imagine taking your exceptionally important vows with the love of your life while standing on top of  one of the highest summits in Lincoln County. At 7,250 feet above sea level, you will find multiple backdrops for stunning photographs that will commemorate your fairytale wedding for years to come.

We work with you to help you plan a wedding that will cause your guests to breathe in the awe that is New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment.
