Renaissance Wedding Album

We just finished a new matted album by Renaissance. It's a fine art feel and it's the perfect showcase of your wedding picture. It comes with 10 pages and 20 images. (Only the best ones.) I used images from Madison and Anthony's stunning winter wedding at the Air Force Academy Chapel and Glen Eyrie Castle for our sample. Now more than ever, a real wedding album is far more meaningful heirloom than a CD of images. If you never got a wedding album from us or another photographer. Just call, we be delighted to help. — Sean

Air Force Academy Wedding : Madison & Anthony

Madison and Anthony were married at the Air Force Academy Chapel over the holidays. A reception at the Glen Eyrie Castle immediately followed the wedding. Madison and Anthony were cadets at the Air Force Academy when they met. Thank you both for inviting me to photograph your winter wedding. It was truly wonderful! — Seanglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureAir-Force-Academy-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-pictureglen-eyrie-castle-wedding-picture

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

There really isn't anything quite like The Broadmoor. 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
