Here’s a list of the best places to get married in Colorado Springs. All of these locations host ceremonies and receptions. At the bottom of this post additional locations are listed that are also really wonderful.

Garden of the Gods Club

One of my absolute favorite wedding locations is the Garden of the Gods Club. Its spectacular beauty is an uninterrupted view of the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak. In this wedding photograph, above,  Ali and Joe embrace at sunset in front of the reflection pool. This location is perfect for small to mid-size weddings and is centrally located. Hands down the best view in the city. See a selection of weddings at the Garden of the Gods Club.

The Craftwood Inn

The Craftwood Inn is a unique and stunning setting for a wedding celebration or special event. Nestled between Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods, this historic mansion sits above the town of Manitou Springs and offers incredible views of the Rocky Mountains. This is Manitou Springs’ premier wedding and events venue and one of the highlights at this location is the service and the food. The Craftwood Inn offers one of the finest dining experiences of any Colorado Springs wedding location. See a selection of weddings at the Craftwood Inn.

The Broadmoor

There really isn’t anything quite like The Broadmoor. It is a AAA Five Diamond and Five Star Resort with luxury accommodations and service. Think first-class spa, a half-dozen of the best restaurants you will ever enjoy, two 18-hole championship golf courses and a handful of beautiful settings for a wedding in Colorado Springs. The Lakeside Terrace takes center stage at the resort and is one of my favorite ceremony locations. But the Broadmoor offers quite a number of different ceremony and receptions sites including the Cheyenne Mountain Lodge, Cloud Camp, Seven Falls and Emerald Valley.

Hillside Gardens

The Hillside Gardens is characteristically Colorado! It is both a plant nursery and a wedding location. It offers a ceremony site with a view of Pikes Peak and an outdoor pavilion for catered receptions. Larry, the owner, has a knack for collecting things and whenever I am there there is a new art piece in the garden. Hillside Gardens also sports the best old-truck-turned-into-bar that I know of and plenty of fire pits for the evening. It’s a great place for a party and for romance.

Glen Eyrie Castle

The Glen Eyrie Castle is a real discovery. It is an honest-to-goodness castle (now a retreat center) that sits in a secluded valley just a couple miles from downtown Colorado Springs. The castle was built by the founder of the city and is now enjoyed by anyone who would like to visit. The Glen has it all, incredible grounds, friendly service and a stunning sense of the history of Colorado Springs. The Glen Eyrie does not serve alcohol, but I’ve never attended a wedding there where everyone wasn’t having fun. See a selection of weddings at the Glen Eyrie Castle.
