MARRY and Bright - The Benefits of Winter Weddings

Imagine getting married in the majestic mountains of Colorado with soft snow romantically drifting from the sky. Winter weddings are a wonderful way to captivate the beauty, allure, and romance that your wedding day will hold. Here are a few benefits of planning your wedding in the winter.

Less Competition

June, August, and September are the most popular months to get married. By marrying in a less popular month, you are giving yourself a better chance of securing the best Colorado wedding venue, and other vendors you've always dreamt of. In addition, when your vendors aren't stressed because you're their third wedding that day, they can have more time and creativity to dedicate to your special day.

Beautiful Photos

If you've ever looked for winter wedding photos on Pinterest, you'll find magical moments that reflect the beauty of the season. From fun photos of snowball fights to cozy images of you and your sweetheart cuddled into a warm blanket - the ideas are endless! Because winter weddings are unique, your photos will stand out, making them memorable and special to anyone who views them.

Fun Accessories

Winter weddings offer you the chance to be creative and use your imagination with your accessories. You can make your day special by featuring the details that make you and your husband unique. From wearing your grandma's white kid gloves to keep warm, to the groomsmen wearing flannel shirts because that's what your fiancé was wearing when you first met him, incorporate your story to make the accessories special.

Lower Prices

One benefit to planning a winter wedding is that the cost can be more affordable. Many vendors offer better prices through the "off-season" since they aren't as busy. For a budget conscience bride, this is an excellent reason to plan your wedding in the winter months.

Fun Themes and Beautiful Decorations

Having a winter wedding doesn't mean you have to stick with red and green color schemes. You can use bold jewel tones to convey extravagance, or throw in pops of color to brighten a cold winter evening. Whether you decide to decorate traditionally with festive Christmas trees or do something fun and out of the ordinary - we know your day will be special.

Best Winter Wedding Venue in Colorado

The Historic Pinecrest is a wonderful venue in any season, but when you see it in the Winter, we're sure you will fall in love with it. From our rustic Colorado chapel with dressing rooms to our large event center where you can dance the night away. The team at Historic Pinecrest would love to help you make memories that will last a lifetime. Give us a call at (719) 357-8613 today to book your winter wedding!

Celebrate at the Historic Pinecrest Lodge

When you host your Colorado Event at Historic Pinecrest, you have our whole team to help with the event, but you also have access to The Lodge! This cozy building is great for family reunions, birthday parties, out of town guests, the wedding party and more!

Family Reunions

With nine bedrooms, the lodge can comfortably sleep 20 people, making our beautiful facility perfect for family reunions.

The open design allows for plenty of space to prepare for the event and the full-service kitchen and high-speed WIFI access will make the accommodations more comfortable than surrounding hotels. The Lodge is booked separately from the chapel and event center, so if you're interested in adding this to your package, be sure to ask about it when you book your event.

Birthday & Anniversary Celebrations

The Historic Pinecrest Lodge can be a wonderful location for birthdays and anniversaries. You can gather your loved ones together and enjoy our cozy lodge with fireplaces on each floor, or the great outdoors where the Colorado mountains surround us.

Beautiful Table Decor at Historic Pinecrest

There are many fun details to plan when you are preparing for your wedding, including your beautiful table decor! When your centerpieces pop, it can add a beautiful ambiance and fullness to the feel of the room. No matter what season you tie the knot, you can create stunning centerpieces for your beautiful Colorado wedding at Historic Pinecrest!

Spring Has Sprung

There are so many beautiful ideas for a Spring wedding in Colorado! From fresh, beautiful flowers to bright colors and happy fragrances. This centerpiece features pretty florals with flourishes of purple to accent the purple tablecloths. The galvanized bucket is a creative way to incorporate a rustic theme into your reception while still keeping everything classic. We love using mirrors in centerpieces as well. They help reflect the light and make the room brighter.

Summer Beauty

There are many romantic things to love about Summer weddings. The gorgeous colors, warm breezes and happy birds chirping are just a few of our favorites at Historic Pinecrest. This centerpiece and table arrangement is a classy way to highlight bold and exciting colors. The pops of teal, orange and yellow are warm and inviting, while the tall Eiffel vase allows people to easily see around the arrangement. 

FALLing in Love

Autumn weddings are a great way to feature the warm colors, spices, and aromas the season brings. These trendy lanterns are an interesting way to bring more light into your reception area. We also LOVE the books in this arrangement, they add such a personal touch to your wedding. The scattered leaves are a colorful reminder of the season, and the chocolate brown tablecloths and color coordinated napkins are a great way to incorporate your wedding colors.

Winter Wonderland

'Tis the season to enjoy such a wonderful celebration! Winter weddings bring a festive feel. We love bringing out all of the beauty that this season holds. With the glittery, white snow, the majestic mountains, and the beautiful wildlife, Winter weddings in Colorado are absolutely stunning. This arrangement brings the sparkling wonder of winter into your reception. Use this season to incorporate some of the things you love about Winter into your centerpiece. 

No matter what season you marry, or the decor and theme you choose, Historic Pinecrest would love to celebrate with you.  Our team is experienced in wedding planning, hosting, and decor, so we would love to share our expertise with you. Give us a call today to see if your date is available and BOOK TODAY!

We just had our wedding here the owners and the employees are so wonderful! We recommend The Pinecrest to everyone! It's so beautiful, the perfect place to celebrate the most special day of your life! Thank you
~Matt & Rachel Cline

I just don't know where to start..or what words to use! Awesome, amazing, beautiful, perfect - these are just some words that come to mind. We had our wedding at The Historic Pinecrest and from first viewing the venue to the actual event itself, everything was PERFECT. The owners, Jess & Maria, treated us like family the minute we met them. They took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for to make our day perfect. The other people on the staff were just as nice and accommodating. I realize this is their business so at some point I expected things to become "business-like", but that never happened. Every interaction we had was like speaking with friends. This venue is not only beautiful, but the people who work there are just as beautiful.
~Marilyn Sheets
