(1) Piney River Ranch, Vail

Piney River Ranch is one of our very favorite Colorado Wedding Venues! It's log cabin and spectacular views give that "rustic posh" look so many of us are looking for.

(2) Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs

If you drool over that red rock, earthy, desert look... Garden of the Gods is the wedding venue for you! Awesome amenities, stunning views, and a boho vibe that will have everyone talking!

(3) North Star Gatherings, Idaho Springs

Another all-time favorite. North Star Gatherings is the perfect Colorado wedding venue for couples that wish to stay close enough to the city, but still be entirely in the mountains... couples that are adventurous, but still want an upscale, structured event. We just ADORE this venue! Bonus: perfect "getting ready" rooms and incredible cocktail deck!

(4) Three Peaks Ranch, Westcliffe 

"So simple, yet so beautiful" - Three Peaks Ranch is a vibe all in itself. A rustic/western boho feel, with breathtaking views of Three Peaks! Can yall wear cowboy hats, Daughters of Simone, and run around in these fields together!?  

(5) The Barn at Sunset Ranch, Buena Vista 

A dream that became reality!! The Barn at Sunset Ranch is on the perfect piece of land, with jaw-dropping blue mountains in the background. The barn is absolutely perfect for our country-loving couples, and the patio makes for an awesome dance floor!

(6) Telluride Ski Resort, Telluride

Telluride Ski Resort is the perfect Colorado wedding venue for families that grew up skiing! Take photos on the chair lift, and eat dinner overlooking the mountains. 

(7) The Little Nell, Aspen

The Little Nell in Aspen is THE DREAM wedding venue for any couple that's looking to be right in the mountains, but still have some posh and glam sprinkled into their big day - who says you can't have both!? It's about 3 miles above the town of Aspen and surrounded by wild flowers.
