1. Unparalleled Mountain Vistas

The beauty of getting married in the mountains is the timeless setting. Hold your ceremony tucked up against the Elk Mountains and let the natural landscape be the backdrop to your perfect day. Our majestic setting in the Colorado Rocky Mountains beside the 12,162 foot peak of Mt. Crested Butte offers a stunning place to tie the knot.   

2. Stunning Venues

Choose between a variety of outdoor settings for your ceremony and then bring the party inside as the sun starts to set. Our Ten Peaks venue offers some of the best views in the valley. Host your cocktail hour at the Umbrella Bar just steps from the ceremony and top off the night in the event tent with your favorite band. Looking for a more intimate experience? Uley’s Cabin is the coziest spot on the mountain. A rustic yet elegant year-round venue, provides the perfect setting for your party.
