Are you thinking about tying the knot in the Centennial State? If so, you’re probably having a hard time narrowing down your choices. Colorado is hip, scenic, and offers chock-full of picturesque backdrops for your special day. Here’s an in-depth look at three of the hottest wedding venues that the state has to offer.
Set in a romantic ghost town in the valley across from Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs Resort offers you and your guests an experience you’ll never forget. Venue Report states that the accommodations are rustic yet modern, and the kitchen makes excellent use of the finest locally sourced ingredients, including organic produce and grass-fed lamb from area farms. Depending on the season, your guests can spend their free time indulging in a bevy of activities, from horseback riding to heli-skiing to relaxing in the mineral hot springs.
This Neoclassical-style mansion was built in 1902 for the family of James Benton Grant, the third governor of Colorado. Today, it serves as an elegant setting for weddings and other special events. While the mansion itself is located in the historic Quality Hill district of Denver, you’ll learn that the Mile High City has plenty more to offer its guests. Denver Microbrew Tour explains that Denver attracts visitors from all over the world thanks to the variety of activities in the city, as well as its lively local brewery scene. These qualities will also ensure that bachelor and bachelorette parties will be lively here. If you decide on the Grant Humphreys Mansion for your wedding, you’ll want to have your potential guests plan on taking an extra-long weekend for the festivities.
You’re sure to feel like you’ve stepped right into a fairy tale at this dramatic venue, conveniently located in Colorado Springs. Avis explains that the amenities and outdoor access the city provides can’t be beat—making it an ideal setting for your upcoming nuptials. The Pinery offers all-inclusive packages to marrying couples, making it that much easier to design the event to your specifications. The Tuscan-style façade of the main building gives the spot an air of elegance, and the views of Pike’s Peak can’t be beat. The staff’s attention to detail is as exquisite as the setting—you won’t have to worry about a thing once the big day rolls around.
While it would be difficult (if not impossible) to find a bad spot for your Colorado wedding, the venues listed above will guarantee that your event is both memorable and snapshot-ready. Be prepared to pose for more photographs than you ever have before—in these settings, your smile will come naturally.
