Best Places to get Married in Colorado | Colorado Wedding Photographer, Colorado Elopement Photographer

When you are looking at where you want to get married or elope in Colorado, do you start to feel overwhelmed? I don’t blame you if you do, because there are a MILLION incredible places.  But that is actually a good thing! No matter where you get married, you can’t go wrong.  As a Colorado wedding photographer, I have been to lots of places, and as a Colorado native I know lots of its little secrets.

1. Marble, Colorado.  It is full of high mountains, hiking trails, lakes and ponds, and every turn has a very different scenery from the last. Marble is close to Aspen, but more hidden away from all of the tourists.  It gives you the sense of Colorado before it started to boom a decade ago.  Marble is a beautiful place to have an intimate wedding, elope, or rent out the Marble Lodge and make it a huge camp-wedding festival!

2. Great Sand Dunes, Colorado. The San Luis Valley is a quite part of Colorado that holds memories of summers camping, one-night trips with the husband, and time with friends.  If you have been to areas like Breckenridge, but never further south-west, then you are missing out! It is completely different. Nearby is the town of Alamosa, where you can go to dinner after the ceremony, or you could go to one of the many campgrounds and have a reception.

3. Durango, Colorado.  From Ouray and Telluride to Durango, really.  The landscape is just ever-changing throughout Colorado and if you want it, you can probably find it (except for the ocean of course!).  There are airports closer than Denver International, so take a look at those.  Also, you have vast options for venues, or remote areas.

4. Estes Park, Colorado.  There are so many incredible views near Estes Park!  Rocky Mountain National Park is in Estes, as well as The Stanley Hotel. It is a great place for all kinds of weddings- adventurous, intimate, high-end, massive, etc. and your guests won’t get bored.

5. Roxborough State Park, Colorado. You get the feel of Red Rocks (which is close by) without being at an amphitheater.  Arrowhead Golf Course is right outside of the park, too if you are looking for a wedding venue.  Roxborough State Park is quite, and stunning for an elopement or intimate wedding.  It is within 45 minutes of downtown Denver, too. Big perk!

6. Granby, Colorado.  Open fields with mountains in the background.  This is the perfect place to set up a tent for the reception and have a ceremony out under the blue bird skies of Colorado.  It is close to Winter Park Ski Resort, but in a small town.  Summer or winter is perfect for a Granby wedding.

7. Vail, Colorado.  Growing up in Breckenridge, I went to Vail a lot to hike and go to sports games, and there is just so much to do! If you are having a high end Vail wedding, then your guests aren’t going to be bored, no matter what time of year.  There is snowshoeing, hiking, skiing, biking, hiking, tubing, eating, shopping, and the list goes on!

Send me a message if you are getting married or eloping in Colorado and want help with locations! I love helping my couples out! And if you want to envision some weddings in any of the spots that I just listed, go to my blog and look through them!
