engaged! whitesands

We are getting married on June 2nd, 2007 at Corkins Lodge in Brazos, New Mexico (about 12 miles outside of Chama, New Mexico).

Since Corkins is full, I wanted to make it clear that there ARE other places to stay! The closest and best option is Brazos Rentals, which is literally next door to Corkins. I have a link to their website in our Accommodations section; you can see there that they have many different options, including a hotel-style lodge, several condos, and several cabins as well that may be suitable for sharing! Again, if you have any questions or worries, please e-mail me or leave a comment on the site! We don’t want anyone to have doubts about anything-we will do our best to make everything clear.


There is no cell phone reception at Corkins or Brazos Rentals-the nearest place is a few miles down the road towards Chama. This means that your cell phone won’t work while you are there, most likely, and also that you won’t be able to reach anyone who is already there on their cell phone. So make sure that you have the number of the place you are staying if you need to contact them or anyone who is staying there! Remember-it’s all part of the rustic ( and relaxing!) experience.

A note about Friday night: this is going to be a very informal potluck-style cookout type deal.  If anyone wants to bring/make anything a side dish or beverage type item is most handy at this point.  Thanks and hope to see you all there!

We are using this site as a central place where everyone can get information about the wedding and the area. Please feel free to either e-mail us or just leave a comment on any of the pages here if you have any questions or thoughts. We want everyone to feel welcome!

Love, Lauren and Doug.
