The Famous “Tequila Donkey” at Santa Fe Hotel

Weddings at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa are special for many reasons: the flexibility and glamor of our indoor and outdoor event venues, the quality of our gourmet catered cuisine, the convenient luxury services of our Spa Sage, the attentiveness and resourcefulness of our wedding planners and coordinators.

But probably the truly singular element of a La Posada wedding—a completely optional one, of course, but highly recommended—is our very own resort tequila donkey.

Introducing Conchita, the La Posada de Santa Fe Tequila Donkey

Tequila donkey? Did you read that right?

You most certainly did! A tradition in Mexico, tequila donkeys are also a popular custom in the American Southwest: a surefire way to take any celebration to a completely other level.

Our La Posada de Santa Fe tequila donkey is named Conchita, and if you would like she can be a part of your wedding festivities—to the absolute delight of each and every one of your guests, we’re pretty confident in predicting.

If so requested, Conchita will “crash” your wedding reception hauling some welcome ingredients in her saddlebag cooler boxes: tequila, limes, and salt. As the donkey’s handlers lead her around the ballroom, a bartender will whip up tequila shots for everybody. Conchita’s a wonderfully gentle and amiable equine, and she leaves no shortage of beaming smiles in her wake.

Needless to say, incorporating a tequila donkey into your Santa Fe nuptials here at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa can ensure a truly unforgettable evening for all involved.
