The Chocolate Turtle Bed and Breakfast can provide intimate ceremonies and memorable receptions for up to 50 people at our beautiful, unique New Mexico wedding location.

For your outdoor Albuquerque area wedding, the ever-changing Sandia Mountains provide a breathtaking, magical background for your special event. Our wedding gazebo frames the mountains, and solar lights line the walkway for sunset ceremonies. A garden of fragrant native shrubs and flowers that surround the patio, featuring a rustic arbor covered with lace vine, provide a pastoral setting for your wedding ceremony.

For your New Mexico wedding reception, the large portal and patio can be set up in a variety of seating and table arrangements to meet your preference. During the cooler months, the Great Room, with the deep turquoise wall surrounding the fireplace, provides a dramatic background for small weddings, elopements, and renewing vows.

Wedding Under The Gazebo
The Turtle provides a perfect venue to celebrate your wedding or union with your loved ones for the entire weekend. By reserving the entire B&B for the weekend for your intimate wedding, reception, and guests, your family and friends can spend the weekend together enjoying each other's company.

The romantic Sandia Room with a private patio will provide the bride and groom with a quiet retreat while enabling a continued celebration with their loved ones.

Even though a picture may be worth a thousand words, a visit to the Chocolate Turtle is the best way to see if this is the perfect location for your special day. We can prepare a personal wedding package tailored just for you. We can cater for 20 or less right here at the bed and breakfast (not required to use us). We also provide an excellent preferred vendor list for all your wedding needs, as well as caterers from budget to lavish, from 6 guests to 50.

Shoes with Words
Having a wedding too large for us to accommodate? Reserve the Chocolate Turtle for your special guests coming from out of town. The Turtle will provide the perfect venue for family members who don't get to see each other very often to gather, catch up, and relax during the wedding weekend.
