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?!
Liz and Brad were such a lovely couple from Day One. Their old-world romance was magical and we were honored to be a part of their gorgeous wedding celebration in beautiful Vail, Colorado.
While the weather did throw us for a few loops, Liz held her composure and was a dream bride. She trusted us to make the best decisions and we were so happy to see the weather hold out long enough so she could walk down the aisle on top of Vail Mountain, escorted by a bagpiper. The ceremony was touching and emotion, followed by a delicious dinner at Game Creek Club . Thank you to Liz and Brad for letting us be a part of your special celebration.
Thank you to Erin at ELC Photogrpahy for warming our hearts with these exception images.
