Colorado Springs’ proximity to the Front Range means one very important thing for your wedding day: this place has some beautiful scenery to use as a backdrop in your photos. And from the red rocks of the Garden of the Gods to the luxury of the Broadmoor, that scenery is totally accessible for brides, grooms, and wedding photographers alike. But what this also means is that Colorado Springs has several one of a kind venues that back up onto these mountain views and rock formations, and is home to some of the most incredible wedding sites in Colorado. From ceremony and reception locations to ambiance-packed restaurants for rehearsal dinners, the options in and around this town are daydream-worthy.
Crooked Willow Farms
Just north of Colorado Springs, Crooked Willow Farms is a multi-faceted venue that makes wedding planning easy. The acres of rolling hills, pine-topped bluffs and white fences border on pristine, and the venue is only rented for one wedding per day, making it exclusively yours for the duration of your private event. Indoor and outdoor spaces are available – and we’re a little bit in love with the Carriage House Ballroom and Lola’s Loft.
Spruce Mountain Guest Ranch
Also located north of the city, and nestled right at the base of Spruce Mountain, Spruce Mountain Guest Ranch is hands down one of our favorite area venues. The working cattle ranch doubles as a breathtaking Colorado wedding location. Ceremonies can be held at any of the ranch’s seven sites (although for sunny summer days we like the Mountain Meadow best) and receptions have nearly the same options. Our ideal order of events? A ceremony in the meadow, cocktail hour among the wildflower gardens, stream, and outdoor fireplace of Ames Patio, and a reception in rustic Albert’s Lodge complete with dancing in the courtyard under strung market lights. Perfect day, complete.
