Creative Celebrations


Located just minutes from downtown Aztec nestled along the Animas River is a tranquil oasis known as Enchanted Celebrations. Owned by the Faver family, this shady green retreat is now available for your next wedding, reunion, or corporate gathering.

"We feel blessed to have this property and now we want to share it with others," Said Martha Faver as she serenly surveys the lush green expanse before her. Ancient cottonwoods grace the 7 acre event area which features manicured lawns, a reflecting pond, stone fire-pit, bar area and 40' by 60' tent. You can also have a dance floor and horse drawn carriage at your event.

Faver recently retired after 45 years running Favers Homes in Farmington, but retirement didn't quite suit her and at almost 80 years young Faver, together with her daughter Candy launched Enchanted Celebrations in May, mainly to keep busy. "I'm a people person really," says Faver. During events Martha will sometimes make an appearance, "I like to come out here and visit for a while, you know, greet the folks," she said. "Then I just go back inside my house." The Faver home is a single story Santa Fe style with a red tile roof set back from the event area.

Matriarch Martha has handed over the actual day-to-day operational chores to daughter Candy, who believes that her role in creating life-memories for her clients is an important one. According to the younger Faver, business has been good so far and the summer promises to be busy.

A happy little stream gurgles under a wooden walk bridge where party-goers can meander along curved pathways lit by solar powered rope lighting. "We try to be as eco-friendly as possible," Faver said. After the sun goes down is when the magic really happens said Faver, "This place looks like a wonderland!"

Wedding parties must supply their own catering and floral decor but have access to the Bridal Cabin. The cabin features a sitting room with mirrors and make-up/hair station for bridesmaids and a private changing room and vanity for the bride on her special day.

While weddings are Enchanted Celebration's bread-and-butter, Faver said that the event space is perfect for family reunions, graduations or corporate events or any "family milestone." Rates vary according to Faver, "We try to be flexible ... we want to make it affordable for almost any budget."

Enchanted Celebrations can accommodate up to 200 guests and provides table chairs, linens, event staff and a 20 seat carriage that transports guests from the parking area to the event area.
