Fairy Tale Wedding at the Glen Eyrie Castle

Tara and Bill were married at the Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Their wedding was truly a Fairy Tale and the Glen Eyrie, an English Tudor-style castle with 24 fireplaces, was the perfect backdrop. After their wedding ceremony, Tara and Bill hosted an outdoor wedding reception at the castle's carriage house. A dramatic lightning storm was an unplanned, if not fitting conclusion to Tara and Bill's Fairy Tale wedding at the Glen Eyrie Castle. - Seanfairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photofairy-tale-castle-wedding-photo

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. If you're looking for both church and reception hall, then I have suggested a church pairing for each of these Colorado Springs wedding locations. 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. Thanks, and I hope you find this helpful! — Sean

Garden of the Gods Club wedding PhotographsGarden 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,  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! Suggested church pairing: Sacred Heart Catholic Church

Broadmoor wedding photographsThe Broadmoor

The best wedding location in Colorado! There really isn't anything quite like it. It is a AAA Five Diamond 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. In this wedding photograph, above, Katie and Justin share a moment during their unity sand ceremony on the Lakeside Terrace. Flowers by Design Works. Suggested church pairing: First Christian Church

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center wedding photographsColorado Springs Fine Arts Center

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center is located in the heart of Colorado Springs. It recently underwent a renovation and addition that allowed the Fine Arts Center to become the premier downtown wedding location in Colorado Springs. The museum is known for its architecture and its extensive art collection. It also offers live theater, art programs and it has a wonderful restaurant and bar. In this wedding photograph, above, Caitlin and Emilio enjoy their first dance in the new wing of the museum. A caterer is required. Suggested church pairing: Shove Chapel

Hillside Gardens wedding photographsHillside 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 caterered 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 firepits for the evening. It's a great place for a party and for romance. In this wedding photograph, above, Emily and Billy steal a kiss during their Hillside Gardens reception. Suggested church pairing: Any local

Glen Eyrie Castle wedding photographsGlen 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. In the wedding photograph, above, Sigrid and Brock enjoy a moment together on the castle grounds prior to their reception. The Rolls Royce is courtesy of DDG Classics. Suggested church pairing: Air Force Academy Chapel

More of the best places to get married in Colorado Springs: Cheyenne Mountain Resort, Colorado Springs School, The Club at Flying Horse, The Carter Payne, La Foret, The Pinery, Craftwood Inn, Briarhurst Manor, Phantom Canyon, The Cliff House, Venue 515, Spruce Mountain Guest Ranch, Cheyenne Mountain Country Club

Shove Chapel Wedding : Sigrid & Brock

Shove Chapel wedding photography

Shove Chapel wedding photographySigrid and Brock were married Saturday, September 24, 2011 at Shove Chapel. A dinner reception at the Glen Eyrie Castle was held outside at sunset. Sigrid and Brock's wedding was delightfully creative. Their wedding theme was fashioned around the idea of oranges; this because of a comment Brock made to Sigrid during their courtship about the nature of love and oranges. Lori Goede of Skyway Creations did a fabulous job with their theme not to mention Sigrid's incredible bouquet. After their ceremony, Sigrid and Brock were chauffered to the castle in a 1959 Roll's Royce courtesy of DDG Classic. For a wedding photographer it doesn't get any better than a beautiful and happy couple, a 1959 Rolls Royce and an honest-to-goodness castle, one of Colorado Springs hidden treasures. The evenings' entertainment was provided by Audio Enlightenment.
