Looking for your wedding venue in the Centennial State? Here are a few tips to keep in mind when evaluating spaces.

Three Tips for Selecting The Perfect Colorado Wedding Venue

Plenty of Space
The easiest way to determine how much space you need is to draft a guest list and brainstorm any fun additions you’ll want at your reception (i.e. Photo Booth, Dessert Bar). The Lodge & Spa offers eight flexible indoor and outdoor spaces ideal for many styles, themes and color palettes.

A Great View
While the bride and groom are the focal point of a wedding, don’t neglect your backdrop. Selecting a venue with a view helps to create an atmosphere of romance.

Style & Fit
There is something to be said about feeling that a certain space is "the one". At The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera, we have venues of various styles, ranging from casual and intimate to grand and upscale.
