Colorado is no stranger to being the beautiful picturesque backdrop of vow recitals, with it’s green valleys cradled by towering mountaintops. In Colorado, there is no shortage, either, of spectacular wedding venues to choose from, as it’s virtually impossible to go anywhere in the state without a breathtaking view.
With seemingly endless choices, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Venues begin to look and feel the same, and the packages all sound as good as the other. Until you see the Broadmoor.
Welcome to the resort fairy-tale wedding of your dreams. The Broadmoor is pinned as one of the most unique and beautiful wedding venues in Colorado, and it’s easy to see why. For almost 100 years, it has taken center stage for weddings and black tie events, with timeless ballrooms, an expert culinary artist team, and a Mountain View Terrace for guests to enjoy.
Let’s explore what makes this venue truly unique, magical, and even “perfect”, as many previous wedding parties had to say for themselves. Shall we?
LOCATION OF THE BROADMOOR
Residing on the southerwestern edge of the Rockies in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado, we have just three words: location, location, location. The Broadmoor is located super close to Denver (about an hour and a half south of the city), so the convenience is there if your guests will be flying in from that airport. Colorado Springs also boasts an airport of its own that supports many flights to the area from major cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, and Dallas, just to name a few (you can check out everywhere they fly to here).
Magnificent Mountain Views:
Sitting on 3,000 acres at the base of the Rockies and Cheyenne Lake, The Broadmoor has no shortage of beautiful scenery. This resort is rated 5 stars for a reason. Take one look at the photo gallery on their website to see what we mean. Engulfed with mountains from every angle, it’s hard to not have your breath taken away. The view is only supplemented by the incredible accommodations that the resort offers. This is a true luxury set in the most gorgeous, quaint mountain town.
It’s easy to see why so many guest reviews claim that this is the most beautiful hotel they’ve ever stayed in, alongside the remarkable guest experience they had. As soon as you step foot onto the property, you are greeted with a lush garden and ornate fountain that is reminiscent of the Biltmore mansion in Asheville. It is a sight to see and you are immediately transported to a place you know is special, whimsical, and magical.
One of the best things about having your wedding at the Broadmoor is that it is a resort, so guests can stay on the property and won’t have to worry about lodging off-site. They boast 784 rooms including suites, brownstones, cottages, and the Estate House. The details are elegant and thoughtful, with each guest room offering either a plush king sized bed or two double beds, modern amenities and lush furnishings.
If your guests would be more suited for a splendid ranch style stay, you can check out the private cabins the Brooadmoor has available as well.
Services Offered On-site:
If you’re looking for a resort that truly has it all, this is it. The list of amenities is seemingly never ending, as they have anything and everything you could want in a stay.
Of course, there are the regular amenities such as room service, a keurig coffee maker in each room, a concierge, housekeeping, valet, and airport transportation, but then there is so much more.
In true luxe fashion, the Broadmoor offers nightly turn down, childcare, and florist services. There are 19 different retail stores on the property, an award-winning spa, a movie theater, two championship golf courses (they are absolutely stunning with the Rockies as your view while you play), and five tennis courts.
There are three swimming pools as well as three hot tubs, water-slides and a kids wading pool, 17 restaurants and cafes, a beauty salon, a bowling alley, a fitness center that offers two separate daily bootcamps, and an impressive collection of western art that you can tour. Paddle boats are complimentary and available depending on the season.
