With the stunning backdrop of Pikes Peak and places like Garden of the Gods Park, the region boasts scenic beauty that will surely wow guests on your wedding day and provide beautiful memories for many years to come. The area has a wonderful history and many natural, geological wonders to serve as the perfect spot to say "I do." Here are a few location ideas that showcase why a Colorado Springs wedding truly "rocks."
A one-of-a-kind ceremony location can be found at the 14,115-foot summit of Pikes Peak - America's Mountain. Here, couples can get married on the scenic mountain that overlooks the metro below. It’s said that on a clear day, onlookers can see to the state of Kansas from the top. The site is open to the public and anyone wishing to take the plunge above tree-line can reach the summit (weather permitting) by driving up Pikes Peak Highway or taking the Broadmoor & Pikes Peak Cog Railway to the top. The more adventurous lovebirds can also hike Barr Trail to the top for one of the more unique wedding locations.
There are no better wedding locations in Colorado Springs to tie the knot than a Garden created by the Gods. Garden of the Gods Park is a geological and natural wonder as well as a treasure to the City of Colorado Springs. These jutting red rocks spires burst with different hues of red and orange creating a surreal scenic surrounding and backdrop. Complete with a road, hiking, biking and walking trails throughout the park, couples can choose the perfect spot that fits them best. The legacy of the Garden of the Gods Park is that it remains free to all people and will always be open and accessible to the public.
Discovered in 1881, Cave of the Winds has been a must-see attraction for travelers for more than a century. Another one of Colorado Springs' unique wedding locations is one of the premiere show caves in the United State at 7,000 feet. Canopy Hall is the first and largest room in the cave with many beautiful formations such as stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone and much more. Bridal Chamber is a small room with beautiful formations such as the Cathedral and the Cathedral Spires. The Canyon Rim Pavilion has spectacular views of the city scape and Williams Canyon below. It's the perfect wedding location in Colorado Springs if you are looking for a place for a wedding reception, corporate party, family reunion, Bar-mitzvah or more.
