There are countless reasons to get married in the beautiful box canyon that is Telluride, Colorado and we’re happy to share our top five with you here:

Let the countdown begin!

5. The Wedding, The Honeymoon… Same Place, Same Time

Instead of wasting precious time together travelling to your honeymoon destination, exchange vows in a location that can serve both your needs. Spend the week of your wedding with family and friends – rent a large vacation home, enjoy everyone’s company and share in a day of pure celebration. Then, when the festivities are over and your guests have travelled home, sneak off to a romantic hideaway  just minutes away and enjoy total seclusion and adventure. Your honeymoon in Telluride knows no bounds!

4. Plan the perfect event no matter the season!

Summer, Spring, Winter and Fall have all hosted exquisite weddings in Telluride – you truly cannot go wrong no matter the season.

Winter weddings see beautiful pillows of white, fluffy snow creating great ski conditions for guests, along with an event and photos that can only be described as “magical”.

Spring weddings are host to fields of early-season wild flowers and a quiet town just for you and yours with fly-fishing and white water rafting aplenty!

Summer creates stunning vistas, packed with the bluest skies, wonderful mountain biking, fun festival life  and wildlife abound.

And Fall… oh fall, with its seas of changing color sprinkled with evergreens – there’s nothing else quite like it or the photography tours and hikes for you to enjoy!

Each season leaves you with incredible panoramas for your special day and your guests with limitless things to do!

3. There’s something fun, for everyone!

Young or old, adventurer or not, Telluride has something fun to offer each and every guest invited to your celebration! For those looking for something more mild and leisurely, photography and food tours are available year round, in addition to plenty of shops and restaurants to patron. Those into extreme activities can whitewater raft, hunt, paraglide or even heli-ski their way to adventure! And those somewhere in between have fly-fishing, mountain biking, hiking and skiing to enjoy.

2. Make your BIG day, one to remember!

Your guests won’t soon forget your vows when they’re perched at 9,000 feet with a backdrop of 14,000-foot peaks and gorgeous blue skies. Waterfalls flow from canyon walls, elk migrate across the valley floor and sunsets create an unbelievable alpen glow effect that spans the horizon. There aren’t many places that offer a free gondola as transportation and are safe and small enough for kids to roam on their own. We’re the fourth friendliest city, the second best city for parades and the absolute best ski resort in North America with the best Christmas lights, music, family friendly lodging, character and scenery in the country!

1. Passion grows here!

If you’ve ever been here or even spoken with anyone who has stepped foot in our stunning hamlet, you know that Telluride isn’t just a place - it’s a passion! There’s something about this small town that breathes life into everything and everyone it touches. It’s what I wanted for my wedding (and marriage), and I’m sure what you want for yours! Your friends and family will thank you for introducing them to such an enchanting town as Telluride.
