Colorado Wedding Guides

So you’re planning a Colorado wedding?

Congratulations! You’re getting married in the best state – not that I’m biased or anything 😉

My favorite part of Colorado weddings is that they are as varied as the people who live here. We have everything from industrial chic wedding venues like The St Vrain and Moss, to incredible mountain ranches like Devil’s Thumb Ranch and Dunton Hot Springs. You can get married at the top of your favorite ski resort, like Lunch Rock at the top of Mary Jane (my personal favorite for both mountain wedding views and mid-snowboarding beer breaks). You can do a chill brunch wedding, or skip the big venues and get married on your family’s ranch,

Or you can say screw it to all the traditions and elope in the mountains instead!

I’ve put together these Colorado wedding guides to help you get started with planning a wedding day as epic as your relationship and the mile high state!

I’ve rounded up my 23 favorite Boulder area spots that are perfect for engagement sessions!

Crested Butte Elopement Locations

Crested Butte is my absolute favorite mountain town in all of Colorado, and a huge part of that comes from all the amazing elopement locations there. Many are accessible by driving semi-sketchy dirt roads (my Subie can handle ’em), and others you need to hike to. But if you’re considering a mountain getaway for your wedding, Crested Butte is the way to go!

Breckenridge Elopement Locations

If Crested Butte is too far away from the Denver metro area for you, Breckenridge is the next best thing. There are so many different elopement locations here, from dirt road mountain passes to epic hikes (fourteener elopement, anyone?), that there’s something for everyone!
