Our favorite Colorado Wedding Venues
Big venue, small venue, indoor venue, outdoor venue? Your wedding venue will affect so many other aspects of your wedding, and with the hundreds of Colorado wedding venues to choose from, we understand that the task may feel daunting. As professionals who have been in the industry for nearly ten years, we have a few tips that might help you:
Start with your wedding season. Keep in mind that Spring and Autumn in Colorado often bring unexpected showers (along with breathtaking sunsets). Your wedding season will determine whether you want an indoor wedding venue, a Winter wedding venue, an indoor/outdoor wedding venue, or even one of Colorado’s all outdoor wedding venues/Summer wedding venues.
How many guests will be attending? This answer will obviously determine whether you need a small wedding venue or a large wedding venue, but an additional note here is how big your largest group photo will be. Keep in mind that you’ll want a backdrop (appropriate for the weather) large enough for that photo, so you’ll need a venue with that type of space.
What is your wedding décor style? It’s your day, so you get to decide how it should look. If you have a specific style, rest assured there are venues to fit, whether that’s a barn wedding venue, a lodge or mountain wedding venue, a contemporary wedding venue, a downtown or city wedding venue, or anything in between.
And, of course, you’ll need to decide how much of your budget to allocate to your venue. Colorado is home to many affordable wedding venues that still provide quality and beauty as well as many luxury wedding venues (if budget is not an issue) and everything in between. To help you with this step, try writing down each of the major expenses for your wedding day and then prioritize them from most to least important. Then, take the top 3 and make sure they’re exactly what you want.
So now that you have an idea of what you’re looking for, let us share with you some of our favorite Colorado venues. Having had the opportunity to photograph over 300 Colorado weddings, we have seen it all. Here are a few of our absolute favorites:
