We chose Pagosa Springs as our wedding destination because Pagosa was our first vacation together. We went skiing at Wolf Creek over spring break in 2015. We would highly recommend a wedding in Pagosa because everyone was very accommodating and the hospitality is second to none. Plus there was plenty of things to do – white water rafting, hiking, shopping, ziplining, and of course dining options.

A Fun Destination Wedding at the Eureka Lodge

With snowy peaks and a beautiful river in the background, I can’t imagine a better location for a wedding.
