Lucky for you, Colorado is full of gorgeous wedding venues fit for every type of couple. In this blog series, we will be featuring some of our absolute favorite Colorado wedding venues from the stunning Front Range all the way to the heart of the Rocky Mountains. We have been so fortunate to plan some amazing weddings and events at these spots and can’t wait for our 2019 season!

Xo, Calluna


VAIL + BEAVER CREEK

Larkspur (Vail, CO)

Why We Love Larkspur: “Our award-winning restaurant is situated in Vail at the base of Golden Peak, and the views don’t get much better. In the winter and early spring, the snowy slopes of Vail Mountain are literally steps away from our patio. From late spring through fall, Larkspur’s lush, green event lawn is surrounded by Aspen groves and stunning views of the majestic Gore Range.” They have both indoor, outdoor patio, and outdoor lawn options, so it is perfect for a reception, ceremony, or both! We loved this photo from Abby + Connor’s reception and look forward to a couple more at the Larkspur in 2019!

The 10th (Vail, CO)

Why We Love The 10th: This one of a kind venue is an iconic Vail wedding site. With high-quality service and breathtaking views, you can’t go wrong with The 10th for your big day! The restaurant looks over the Gore Range at Vail mid-mountain, they serve regularly during the ski season and are open for weddings and private events in the summer. We loved working here for Abby + Connor’s big day this past summer!

Zach’s Cabin (Bachelor Gulch, CO)

Why We Love Zach’s Cabin: “Perched on the mountainside high above Bachelor Gulch with the uninterrupted views of the magnificent Gore Range, Zach’s is the epitome of fine dining at its peak.  Guests are whisked away for a starlit sleigh ride, pulled by a Beaver Creek Snow Cat.  Famous for its artful assemblage of fresh Rocky Mountain fare featuring the finest regional and seasonal ingredients paired with excellent vintages for the perfect dinner experience.” We are thrilled to be planning Mackenzie + Tom’s winter wedding at Zach’s this year!


ASPEN + BASALT

The St. Regis Aspen (Aspen, CO)

Why We Love The St. Regis Aspen: Located at the base of Aspen mountain, The St. Regis will provide your guests with the ultimate “Aspen” experience. A St. Regis wedding means luxury, comfort and unforgettable memories. Just steps away from the slopes and the amazing bars and restaurants of Aspen, the location of the St. Regis could not be more ideal. Check out some of our past weddings at the St. Regis here and here.

The Little Nell (Aspen, CO)

Why We Love The Little Nell: The Little Nell is the epitome of luxury and getting married here would be an unforgettable experience. Looking for epic views? “The experience waiting for you as you step off Aspen’s Silver Queen Gondola may be reason enough to exchange vows. Floating three miles above the town of Aspen but just steps from The Little Nell, our Wedding Deck is a venue unlike anything else in Colorado. At an elevation of 11,212 feet, with sweeping views of the Elk Mountain Range, it doesn’t get much more romantic. Add a little chilled champagne for up to 250 guests on the manicured terrace, and any union is truly blessed.” We love The Little Nell and can’t wait for our next wedding there!

Roaring Fork Club (Basalt, CO)

Why We Love The Roaring Fork Club: This private club in the cozy town of Basalt right outside of Aspen is the perfect venue for a picturesque wedding. “Whether it’s a destination group event, wedding or small intimate gathering, the Roaring Fork Club offers the idyllic Rocky Mountain experience with an upscale flair. The Club offers all of your destination event needs – lodging, banquet services and a variety of venues for any occasion.” It truly is spectacular!

Hotel Jerome (Aspen, CO)

Why We Love Hotel Jerome: “Located in the heart of Aspen with a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic heritage, deluxe Aspen Resort accommodations, superb amenities, genuine hospitality and dedicated service for an elevated experience in the Rocky Mountains. With stunning views of Aspen Mountain and affording convenient access to downtown, the Hotel Jerome featuring Aspen’s only above-ground ballroom is the ideal event venue for an effortlessly elegant wedding or special event.” View photos from one of our Hotel Jerome weddings here!

T Lazy 7 (Aspen, CO)

Why We Love T Lazy 7: “T-Lazy-7 Ranch is home to three of Aspen’s premier event venues. You can customize your own a twinkle-lit tented reception in the stunning T-Lazy-7 Meadow, or pair a Meadow ceremony with the elegant T-Lazy-7 Event Lodge for the reception dinner and dancing. If you’re looking for a more authentic hoe-down experience, cozy around the campfire at our covered outdoor facility known as the Chuckwagon Grounds. T-Lazy-7 Ranch is a spectacular setting for any event and is surrounded by National Forest and Wilderness for stunning photo backdrops.” We love this place!


DUNTON + STEAMBOAT + TABERNASH

Dunton Hot Springs (Dunton, CO)

Why We Love Dunton Hot Springs: Right outside of Telluride, nestled in the San Juan Mountains this up to date ghost town is a Calluna favorite. This intimate property includes hand built log cabins and luxury glamping. Dunton offers a variety of activities around the property, and we can guarantee this will be an experience your guests will never forget. Check out Meshach and Warren’s Dunton Hot Spring’s wedding here!

Flying Diamond Ranch (Steamboat Springs, CO)

Why We Love Flying Diamond Ranch: This ranch right outside of Steamboat Springs is truly magical. The views are spectacular and the land is vast. Perfect for any nature lover, Flying Diamond is a beautiful blank canvas. “Picturesque aspen groves and open fields framed by forests and mountains with sweeping, majestic views of the Steamboat Ski Area create a stunning space to host magical and very private Colorado weddings, parties, and events.” We are so excited for Brenna + Jeff’s wedding there this summer!

Devils Thumb Ranch (Tabernash, CO)

Why We Love Devils Thumb Ranch: The Calluna team adores Devil’s Thumb, and we are thrilled to have several weddings there again this summer and fall! “Weddings at Devil’s Thumb leave a lasting impression for brides, grooms, and their guests through forever moments captured against our breathtaking backdrops. Let us bring your unique vision to life with customizable menu options comprised of fresh, local cuisine, eloquent ceremony sites that fit your personal style, and special touches that deliver the kinds of perfect moments this special day deserves.” Take a look at some of our past Devil’s Thumb weddings here.

LARKSPUR + COLORADO SPRINGS

The Broadmoor Hotel (Colorado Springs, CO)

Why We Love The Broadmoor Hotel: “Weddings at The Broadmoor are truly a signature event. Our historic resort features a variety of enchanting venues that can accommodate receptions and ceremonies from 20 to over 1,000 guests, including the availability of the historic Pauline Memorial Chapel immediately adjacent to The Broadmoor.” We can’t wait for Annie + Jared’s big day at The Broadmoor this fall!

Cloud Camp at The Broadmoor (Colorado Springs, CO)

Why We Love Cloud Camp: “The secluded setting and all-inclusive nature of Cloud Camp makes it an ideal choice for corporate retreats and groups looking to reconnect among the beauty of Colorado’s lush wilderness. Escape day-to-day routines and define a new vision in a truly inspiring setting where all of your lodging, meals, and activities are included.

Why We Love Spruce Mountain Ranch: “A perfect blend of rustic elegance, Spruce Mountain Ranch is a 450 acre premier mountain venue conveniently located just outside of Denver.

Top Colorado Wedding Venues | Part Two: Rocky Mountain High

We’re continuing our three part series of our favorite Colorado venues and today we’re packing up our cars and turning up the tunes – it’s about time for a mountain getaway! From Aspen to Wyoming to all the way west of Telluride, we’ve stumbled on multiple pockets of heaven…and we plan to stay awhile. It’s impossible not to fall in love with each venue time and time again, and recounting the beauty in the nine properties below makes us incredibly grateful + giddy to be wedding planners (and devoted Colorado admirers). Enjoy!
**See Part One: Front Range options here and stay tuned for our Part Three: wish-list venues next week.

Dunton Hot Springs – Southwestern Colorado, outside Telluride
Why we love it: Outstanding luxury in tucked away in remote serenity.
We can’t contain our excitement as we prepare to visit Dunton Hot Springs for Meshach + Warren’s nuptials in a few short weeks. This quintessential wedding destination could not be more lovely, quietly and comfortably offering the purest Colorado beauty we’ve ever seen. Their website description sums up the resort experience:  ‘This perfectly restored ghost town thrives on contradictions; hand- hewn log cabins exquisitely furnished, a life-worn saloon serving food of startling quality, lung torturing trails followed by pampering massages, sensuous hot springs beneath shimmering snow banks’. It’s a bit of a drive, but you’ll be transported by beauty.

Brush Creek Ranch – Southern Wyoming
Why we love it: 30,000 pristine private acres to get immersed in the wild, wonderful West.
Named #2 Hotel & Resort in the World, #1 Resort in the U.S and #1 Resort in the West by Conde Nast Traveler for the second consecutive year (wow!), this place is not messing around. A quick jump across the Colorado boarder, the rustic resort has all of the modern fixings to make your wedding more beautiful than you could ever imagine. We are overjoyed to accompany Karen + Jeff for their May celebration, and are already inspired by the natural beauty of this property.

Beano’s Cabin, Allie’s Cabin, Saddle Ridge – Beaver Creek
Why we love it: Classic Colorado beauty coupled with gourmet food and a scenic sleigh ride*.
These three venues are all part of Beaver Creek Resorts; some of our favorite spots to work in all of Colorado. Superior staff and incredible food are paramount at these venues. For our clients wanting the top notch Colorado mountain experience these are some of the best in the state. Equally stunning in the interior as the beautiful outdoors, we are hopelessly in love with Beaver Creek. *In the snowy season the only accessibility to Beano’s is by sleigh. Santa, is that you calling? We’re in love.

Devils Thumb Ranch – Tabernash, outside of Winter Park.
Why we love it: Log cabins, a Civil War era reconstructed barn, and breathtaking views of the Continental divide.
The views are unbeatable, the service is impeccable and if you’re lucky a few horses may make a guest appearance during your photo shoot. It’s the perfect Colorado escape regardless of the season (in fact – winter or summer – we can’t pick a favorite!) Your guests will enjoy a weekend getaway with onsite lodging options and authentic cabins, along with every activity under the sun. We’ve had so many gorgeous weddings here – including Lauren and Brad’s – the first to marry at the High Lonesome Barn. We are thrilled to already have a July wedding on the books!

The Little Nell – Aspen
Why we love it: Aspen’s only ski-in/ski-out resort, filled to the brim with top notch amenities and romantic intimacy.
We were privileged to work alongside some of The Little Nell’s premium culinary talent at the 2015 Boulder Burgundy Festival. We were blown away by their talent & poise, but also their down to earth, happy dispositions, making them a forever friend in the industry. Marry their upstanding service with the stunning hotel + event ground at the base of Aspen mountain, and any celebration at the Little Nell is destined to be dreamy.

Aspen Art Museum – Aspen
Why we love it: Modern museum with a picturesque terrace.
Our first experience with this to-die-for venue was with Jessica + James, who happened to the second couple to be married at the museum! The ultra modern, actively functioning museum presented you with intriguing photo ops every where you looked (trust us, you want to see this stylish affair). The architecture, the clean lines and the jaw dropping views on the wedding deck had us ooh-ing and ahh-ing all day. This one is a high recommendation to the modern sleek bride + groom!

 Spruce Mountain Ranch – Larkspur
Why we love it: All. That. Greenery.
Molly + Nick made it official at Spruce Mountain Ranch last year and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the venue & staff. The cool Colorado charm and abundant space made the Ranch a home run… if you don’t believe us the ariel video posted on their homepage is enough to win anyone over. Between the spacious acreage and the overwhelming greenery we hope to be returning to this venue very soon.

The 10th – Vail

Why we love it: Top-of-the-mountain, flagship Vail dinning experience
This new to the scene sit restaurant + bar has caught our attention – and the hearts of Hadley + Michael who will be saying “I do” atop this idyllic mountain top. Modern with a bit of cozy mountain flair, nature lovers find a little piece of heaven. This venue is exclusively accessible by foot, bicycle wheel, skis or cozied up in a gondola. If you ask us, that pretty much checks off every box we can think of when asking for an authentic Colorado Mountain experience.

St Regis – Aspen
Why we love it: Grandiose Aspen luxury, versatile decor options

We have to admit, when we think Aspen Colorado, we immediately think St. Regis luxury. This travel + leisure staple is a guaranteed grand time, whether you’re looking for a romantic white wedding like Vanessa + Avery’s or a sleek modern tented option like Page + Scott’s affair in the photos below. Our friends at the St. Regis always take care of us, and we’re grateful to have developed a relationship over the years so we can continue the inspired planning!

Lauren + Brian’s sweet Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding

Here’s another beauty at one of our favorite venues, Devil’s Thumb Ranch.  Lauren and Brian’s wedding epitomized everything we love about weddings at DTR – unbeatable views, beautiful spaces, and a radiant couple. The afternoon storm clouds parted just in time for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony followed by a lovely reception in the Board Axe Barn. The natural beauty of the barn was enhanced with inspired lighting, elegant flowers and an abundance of love! What’s more, Lauren and Brian’s splendid day culminated with touching toasts and one epic dance party!
