Choosing our favorite Colorado mountain venues is nearly impossible! Let’s be honest, Colorado has some of the most amazing wedding venues in the world, but, with help from our brides, staff and vendors, we have come with our five favorite mountain venues.
7088 US-24, Red Cliff, CO 81649, http://www.novaguides.com/camp-hale-lodge/weddings/
Adventurous couples craving an authentic mountain experience will love Camp Hale, a 90-acre, rustic ranch venue outside of Vail, Colorado. It’s ceremony space, on a small island in the middle of a 5-acre lake, surrounded by mountain peaks is seriously amazing!
Beyond the ceremony space, the camp has a beautiful outdoor cocktail area, along with a large lakeside tent that can accomodate 300 guests. At the end of the evening, the bride and groom, along with their guests, can stargaze and make s’mores around a bonfire. Lodging is available on-site.
It goes without saying that the photos at Camp Hale are incredible. In fact, The Bridal Collection is planning a winter style shoot at the venue in February. We can’t wait to show you the photos. Stay tuned!
