About Conifer Weddings
Note: Despite it being so close to Denver, we rarely make it up to Conifer to shoot weddings. It’s kind of a lesser-known mountain destination and tends to go under the radar when most couples are planning their weddings. That said, we’ll be sure to keep this list updated as we venture back up that way in the future and continue to discover more unique Conifer wedding venues.
Just a short drive southwest from Denver on Hwy. 285, Conifer is a small mountain town known for its beautiful scenery and picturesque mountain hikes. As I mentioned above, Conifer tends to go undiscovered by most folks visiting Colorado, which means it’s not as crowded as other mountain towns such as Breckenridge and Vail.
Conifer is a perfect wedding destination for couples looking for a mountain wedding that won’t break the bank and isn’t too far afield from the city. This is always a plus if you have a high percentage of your wedding guests coming in from out of town, especially if they’re not used to being at altitude and driving in the mountains. It’s kind of a best-of-both-worlds location, because you can have the picturesque mountain wedding you’ve been dreaming of without having to travel far to do so.
Also, if you venture a bit further on Hwy. 285 and you’ll come to one of our favorite places in Colorado to take wedding photos: Kenosha Pass. This idyllic mountain pass lies between Grant and Jefferson and is one of the absolute best places in all of Colorado to take photos of fall foliage. So if you’re planning your wedding for late September or early October, look no further!
