Best Places To Get Married In Colorado Springs
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. Click on the name of any location for more detailed wedding information.

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, Mamie and Nick walk together in front of a stunning landscape. This location is perfect for small to mid-size weddings and is centrally located. With a larger wedding (200+) ask about a tented event on the south lawn where this photograph was made. Hands down the best view in the city!
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 atop a lovely bluff with incredible views of the Rocky Mountains and Manitou Springs below. This is Manitou Springs only boutique wedding and events venue and one of the highlights at this location is the food. Hands down one of the finest dining experiences of any Colorado Springs wedding locations.
There really isn’t anything quite like The Broadmoor. It is a AAA FiveDiamond and Five Star Resort with luxury accommodations and unbelievable service. Think first-class spa, a half-dozen of the best restaurants you will ever enjoy, three 18-hole championship golf courses and a handful of beautiful settings for a wedding in Colorado Springs. The Lakeside Terrace is one of my favorites ceremony locations. The Broadmoor offers a number of different ceremony locations. The Lakeside Terrace takes center stage at the resort.
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 always 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.
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.
