Boulder Colorado Winter Weddings

By Alexandra Garcia

Boulder is often referred to as “25 square miles surrounded by reality.” Why not begin your next chapter as husband and wife in this magical town nestled at the base of the towering Rocky Mountains in Colorado?

Here are the top four reasons to say “I do” during winter in Colorado.


Winter in Colorado is an exquisite scene. Romantic snowfall allows for phenomenal wedding portraits to preserve the memories of your special day for years to come. Any color palette you prefer is perfectly supplemented by the pure white flurries. In addition, many vendors like florists, photographers, DJs and caterers have increased availability during this chilly time of year to help bring a vision to life.

The photo opportunities are endless with several breathtaking backdrops surrounding Boulder. For example, Hotel Boulderado is nestled at the base of the snow-kissed Rocky Mountains, just one block away from the Pearl Street pedestrian mall and a 10-minute drive to Chautauqua Park. Ride to Chautauqua in style in the Hotel Boulderado’s vintage 1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II or stroll Pearl Street under the glow of the charming holiday lights.

Full-service hotels and venues help take the stress out of wedding planning by providing everything you and your guests may require all on property. For example, Hotel Boulderado has event space to suit all wedding-day desires, and loved ones don’t have to face icy roads or slippery sidewalks with guest rooms and dining options for rehearsal dinners, other meals and late-night bites or libations on-site. When looking at Colorado choices, consider having everything under one roof or pairing nearby venues. You may even consider fun transportation like a fleet of limousines, a large sleigh pulled by snowcat or horses in the mountains, or a custom Mercedes van.

Colorado’s grand historic hotels boast a unique charm and amazing backdrops. The ambiance of a boutique property paired with modern amenities and creative cuisine creates a perfectly balanced atmosphere for weddings. During the reception, create delicious winter memories with a s’mores or hot chocolate bar. The warm, rich colors of holiday décor in the state’s historic hotels and twinkling lights complete the ambiance for a celebration.
