The Best Time Of Year For Your Wedding At The Peaks

Generally speaking, the weather in Colorado is beautiful from June through October. (If you like a little bit more snow, you might opt for the winter months—but be careful, because you don’t want to have heavy snow impact travel plans for you or your guests.)

Remember, because June through October is such an ideal time, there’s also a lot of demand. Be sure to plan ahead and book early!  

Where To Have Your Wedding Ceremony

Remember how we mentioned The Peaks’ elegant setup with three venues? Each one of the three sites offers a slightly different environment that’s perfect for one of the many stages of a traditional wedding.

You can start your big day on the Mount Wilson Terrace, an outdoor patio overlooking the mountains that would be ideal for your ceremony and even cocktail hour before the main reception begins.

Once it’s time for a formal sit-down dinner (or in the event of rain, and the ceremony has to come indoors), you can move to the Legends Dining Room, a luxurious setting for a formal multicourse meal.

Finally, you can finish off the evening in the Crystal Room, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and its expansive dance floor where you and your guests can party late into the night.Curious to get a better feel for each one of the sites? You can take a virtual tour from Wedding Wire.
