So, you’ve decided to take the big leap and bind yourself for all your living days to another human being … congratulations! That means you’re gettin’ hitched!

Not the least of which is finding a Colorado Springs wedding venue that will fit your unique style — and all of your guests. Now, we’re not trying to brag, but pretty much anywhere in the Pikes Peak region is going to be a stunning place to hold a wedding. However, we’ve gone the extra mile to show you some of the coolest, most memorable locations around for your big day.

Intimate Gatherings: Weddings at Cave of the Winds

For gatherings of a smaller sort, couples can pledge their love in Cave of the Winds’ Canopy Hall or Bridal Chamber (they hold 25 and 15 people respectively). The stunning rock formations in these two venues create unmatched photo opportunities and will make your intimate wedding unique and memorable for you and everyone who attends. And it can’t hurt that you’re forging lasting bonds of eternal matrimony under rocks that have endured for millions of years.

Wild West Flair: Ghost Town Museum Receptions

With accommodations, up to 150 for sit-down dinners and 200 for stand-up affairs, the Wild West Ghost Town Museum offers couples a fun and functional atmosphere to celebrate with all your favorite people. Guests can stroll the museum between dancing and dining and enjoy touring the historic relics from the Colorado mining era. Plus, you aren’t limited to an on-site caterer, DJ or other typical vendor restrictions, which means you can book all your favorites without issue.

Built for Big Weddings: The Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame

Well, despite its designation as a monument to bull riding and barrel racing, the Hall of Fame is a pretty stellar venue for saying your vows and partying down. With accommodations for more than 200+ guests, ample parking and beautiful grounds, you’ll find all that you need to host a memorable wedding, with a little of Colorado’s western flair, to boot.

Commit on the Summit of Pikes Peak — America’s Mountain

You can look upon your wedding venue for the rest of your life when you choose to marry on a mountain. And while most people strive to find that perfect photo opportunity with the majestic Pikes Peak in the background, you’ll actually be on the mountain, with the entire world as your backdrop instead. Remember to account for altitude and temperature for this particular venue — the air is thin and chilly at 14,115 feet.

We don’t necessarily mean literally, although there are a few rides that will allow you and your spouse to careen off the side of a cliff together. The park offers several areas to wed, catering, views and a staff that’s trained to handle events both large and small. You can even book a romantic cabin for your wedding night, or a longer stay to enjoy the mountains and surrounding attractions. And, like every Colorado wedding venue, it goes without saying that your views will be dynamic and unforgettable.

Say “I Zoo” at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has perfected the art of hosting incredible weddings, including, no joke, the ability to rent out the entire zoo for your crew (after hours, some animals will be tucked in for the night). The Lodge at Moose Lake is located right in the center of the zoo with capacity for 200 indoors and 280 outside. Over at the Safari Lodge, you’ll find a smaller setting, but enjoy the added bonus of meerkat viewings. The zoo also features onsite catering and the option to hang out and feed the giraffes, too.

An Intimate — but Regal— Wedding at Miramont Castle

Miramont Castle is already a pretty winning idea, being that it’s basically a fairytale come true. Getting married in an honest-to-goodness castle would make any couple feel like royalty. Miramont takes that charge seriously, rolling out the red carpet with tons of options including gardens, a small chapel, a solarium overlooking Red Mountain and a huge, 100-foot-long hall. They also offer tasty foods from the lovely Queen’s Parlour Tea Room.

Your wedding day is a memorable event that you and your partner will cherish for a lifetime. Whether choosing a location for its cool scenery, its ability to fit all the people you love in one space or its breathtaking photo opps (or all three, it’s your day, after all), any one of these venues is guaranteed to make your wedding extra special and uniquely you.
