About Colorado Springs Weddings
Approximately 70 miles south of Denver on I-25, Colorado Springs has a lot going for it: the Airforce base, Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and breweries galore, to name a few. Not to mention, there is a treasure trove of unique Colorado Springs wedding venues to choose from. Geographically-speaking, Colorado Springs is similar to Denver, in that it lies on the front range, just to the east of the Rocky Mountains. The only difference is that The Springs is actually a bit closer to the mountains, making it even easier to capture both mountain and urban wedding photos in one day.
Colorado Springs is also a bit cheaper than Denver and most of the mountain and resort towns that lie along the I-70 corridor. It’s a fairly sizable city with tons of restaurants, breweries, distilleries and coffee shops that are generally more affordable than similar establishments in more touristed parts of the state. Plus, it’s right next to the mountains and a plethora of cool wedding photo locations, including Pike’s Peak, which is one of only two 14ers in Colorado that you can drive to the top of (Mount Evans being the other).
Colorado Springs also has its own airport, so your out-of-town guests won’t have to drive from Denver if they don’t want to. Of course, it’s more expensive to fly into a smaller airport, but with the savings on rental cars and gas, it might end up evening out.
Plus, as I mentioned before, there are a ton of different and unique wedding venues to choose from. Whether you’re looking for an urban feel or something a little more secluded and mountainous, you’ll be able to find the perfect wedding venue in Colorado Springs.
