5 Reasons to Say I Do in The Colorado Rockies

What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you think of a destination wedding? The beach? Palm trees? Warm weather? We feel you, and at the same time encourage you to consider the mountains! We recently had the chance to experience two of Colorado’s most romantic and lively mountain towns – Breckenridge and Vail. They’re full of wildlife, stunning views, amazing adventures, and romantic getaways! This got us thinking that a Rocky Mountain wedding could be just as luxurious and unforgettable as a typical destination beach wedding.

Not only do these two enchanting towns have some amazing wedding venues like Tenmile Station, The Maggie, The 10th, and The Arrabelle, but they also have endless opportunities for experiences that the whole wedding party will enjoy! Read on to see our list of reasons to say I Do in the Colorado Rockies.

1. The Views and Photo Opps

There’s nothing like waves crashing on the shore while the sun sets, but have you ever seen golden hour from 8,022 ft. above sea level? Now that is breathtaking! There is just something so unique and magical about the way the mountains create a backdrop for the perfect photo opportunities.

2. The Food and Drink

From light bites to extravagant dinners, the Colorado Rockies have it all. Host a luxurious rehearsal dinner followed by s’mores at Cucina, or enjoy an exclusive dining experience at Game Creek by taking a short ride up the Eagle Bahn Gondola to Eagle’s Nest, where you will be escorted to the elegant, European-style chalet nestled in nature.

3. Accommodations

One Ski Hill Place, A Rock Resort in Breckenridge is at the top of the list when it comes to excellent service and high end luxury. It’s just steps from five different chairlifts, offering effortless access to countless ski runs in the winter and an array of outdoor adventures in the summer. Another amazing option is The Lodge at Vail, where you and your guests are immersed in Vail village and surrounded by exceptional dining options, shopping, and mountain culture.

4. The entertainment

Breckenridge and Vail are packed full of endless entertainment and adventures for every person that will be in town for your big day. The bride can take her bridesmaids on a short chairlift ride to do mountain top yoga at Vista Haus, explore the wilderness on a guided hike, or get pampered at the spa. For the adventurous ones there’s mountain jeep rides, ziplining, mountain coasters, and cocktail making classes. The opportunities are truly endless!

5. The whimsical Mountain town vibes

There’s just nothing quite like the feeling you get when you’re in the mountains. The towns are enchanting and quaint, making it hard to ever want to leave. The Colorado Rockies provide a one-of-a-kind, quintessential experience that you and your loved ones are sure to cherish forever.
