Whether you love sand or snow, choosing your destination wedding is a big decision and will require many hours of planning in a location that is not completely familiar to you. But, don’t think that destination weddings mean going abroad, there are plenty of beautiful locations in the U.S. and we’re lucky enough to have a few visit next Monday’s New York Bride Event at the Metropolitan Pavilion from 4-8 p.m. Even if you can’t attend and are unsure of where to host your wedding, we encourage you to explore these fabulous venues.
If you consider yourself more of an “outdoorsy” person that enjoys hiking, skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing, etc. then Telluride may be the perfect location for you. Telluride has a few spectacular venue options that embrace the surrounding San Juan Mountains.
Nestled in the San Juan Mountains, exudes rustic elegance. Send guests up the mountain on a snowmobile sleigh as they take in the star light sky and views of the mountains.
Perched 10,551 feet above sea level, this location requires a gondola visit but is worth it when you take in the views while sipping on wine from their European wine cellars.
Take in mountain views from 12,200 feet and Telluride’s renowned Tempter Chute in one of the nation’s most secluded and romantic locations.
