Combining adventure and luxury, this Garden of the Gods Wedding shows off Colorado’s diverse landscape for your destination nuptials
Part adventure elopement, part high end resort wedding: the vibe perfectly executed by Skylar from Chancy Charms Weddings. If you’re looking for an exclusive retreat surrounded by rugged nature, look no further than the Garden of the Gods Wedding Resort and Club in Colorado Springs. Located just over an hour from the Denver airport, this is an accessible getaway.
Rosie and Chris wanted to give their guests, whom were traveling in from across the country, a true destination experience. From a Friday welcome party to a late night reception, guests were encouraged to kick back and enjoy the resort for the weekend.
Wanting to incorporate some adventure into their Garden of the Gods wedding, Rosie and Chris opted for couples portraits in the park. This playground of red rocks is right across the street from the resort making it easily attainable on your timeline. They also wanted a ceremony with a view! Skylar knew the lawn at the reflecting pool would give guests a stunning vista looking out to Pike’s Peak, one of Colorado’s most notable landmarks. After being greeted with a champagne wall, guests were treated to some tear jerking nuptials.
The evening continued in an indoor/outdoor reception in the Hill Room and Terrace. Dancing and revelry carried on into the night with beautiful floral details and a custom french fry bar. The only thing missing was their sweet Franklin, but don’t worry – he made an appearance on the cocktail napkins!
