A Fall Wedding in Silverton

Our inspiration was the beauty of fall in the mountains. It is definitely our favorite season with the warm sunny days and cool nights, and the changing of the aspen leaves to glowing gold. We wanted to bring that feeling into our wedding day while complementing the mountain lodge architecture of our venue, and keeping in mind Silverton’s Victorian/mining history.

Rainbows, Sunsets & Unbelievable Views at Canyon Crest Lodge

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.

With snowy peaks and a beautiful river in the background, I can’t imagine a better location for a wedding. Our family and friends from Venezuela, Miami, Michigan, Washington, DC and California made the long trip to this remote place in Silverton, Colorado for our wedding.
