We’re continuing our top Colorado wedding venue list – there are so many venues we adore one blog won’t do it justice! Check out Part One and enjoy the beauty our state has to offer!
Dunton Hot Springs – Their quintessential website description sums up the mountain 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’ . We are swooning. A few years back our good friend Keira was married here and it was just as magical as it sounds. We are dying to bring a wedding back here in 2015 or future seasons.

Brush Creek Ranch – This venue is on our wedding planner wish list! Although we haven’t done a wedding here yet, we are eagerly awaiting the day one of our couples chooses this luxury property in Southern Wyoming to exchange vows. Recently voted by Brides Magazine in the top wedding venues of 2015, this rustic resort (with all the modern fixings) is without fail one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen.

Aspen Mountain Club at the Little Nell – Wedding planner wish list #2! We think so fondly of Aspen weddings and have always loved going up there. This past year we had the great pleasure of planning a rehearsal dinner at the Aspen Mountain Club and absolutely fell in Love with this venue atop Aspen Mountain. It was so beautiful and we are dying to do a wedding ceremony here followed by a reception at either the AMC or the Sundeck.
Game Creek Club – Another top of the mountain, this Vail icon is in a league of its own. Guests travel up the Vail Gondola and are treated to panoramic views from the wedding deck and then continue back through the mountain to the Game Creek Club in the majestic Gore range. Incredible food and beverage options as well as overall experience. There is something so intimate and special about being at the tip top of the Rocky Mountains, and it makes us fall in love with this state all over again.
Beano’s Cabin, Allie’s Cabin, Saddle Ridge – 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. See two 2014 Calluna couples at these properties: Jennifer + Bob at Beano’s Cabin and Evan + Chris at SaddleRidge.
Four Seasons Denver & Vail – This classic option will always on our list because of the outstanding quality of the venue and national recognized hospitality. The Four Seasons staff lives, breaths, and eats excellence and provides an unmatched experience. So much so, we wish more of our clients would choose the Four Seasons property for their tasteful affair. We were fortunate to work with FS Denver this past summer for Lesley + JD’s wedding and the FS Vail for a client’s booking. Food, ambiance, impeccable service, high class rooms….what more would you want?!
Lesley & JD came to Calluna Events through Lesley’s stepsister Amy which made their business extra special – we love personal referrals! From the beginning we adored Lesley & JD’s vision for their day – to simply enjoy their wedding. To them this meant an intimate ceremony along side their closest friends and family, skipping the fuss of a full-blown reception. We planned an outdoor ceremony at the extraordinary Four Seasons pool deck followed by a chic, modern cocktail reception. Mother Nature had a mind of her own; although we were able to still hold the ceremony and part of the cocktail hour outside after a passing thunderstorm, we decided to move the remainder of the reception inside to keep guests dry and comfortable. Throughout the weather delays and changes Lesley remained calm and didn’t allow the rainstorms to dampen her spirits, a true testament to her holding onto the most important piece of the wedding day – marrying JD!
We worked with The Perfect Petal for the florals and decor. This late summer wedding celebrated the warm, comfortable yet elegant style of the bride and groom with hues of raspberry, plum, gray and sunny saffron. Sequin linen, bold modern wood elements, interesting botanicals and contemporary ceramic vessels rounded out the look. The color palate was lighthearted and timeless with a sophisticated sensibility. A stunning yellow patterned aisle runner along with La Tavola New York silver sequin linen for the ceremony table provided an unexpected modern look.
We wish a lifetime of happiness for the amazing couple!
