Outdoor Weddings in Colorado are Spectacular
Cascade Village has the reputation of being the most beautiful outdoor wedding venue in Colorado. We offer not only the meadows for your ceremony but also a reflecting pond that mirrors the gorgeous green mountains and puffy white clouds forming a unique outdoor wedding venue.
If you envision a winter wedding, our indoor facilities (with windows looking out on the surrounding snow-capped Rocky Mountains) are perfect for indoor ceremonies and receptions. We can seat up to 220 guests, and they are also available as backup for inclement weather. If you are a winter sports enthusiast, the Purgatory ski resort is just a mile away by complimentary shuttle. Downhill and cross-country skiing, as well as snowmobiling, are some of the best in the US.
Cascade Village is located in the lower 1/3 of the American Rocky Mountain range in an area called the San Juan Mountains, located between Durango and Silverton, Colorado. We are just 30 minutes north of Durango with its nearby airport. And the old mining town of Silverton is just25 minutes north of us. The world-famous Durango and Silverton narrow gauge railroad, a national historic landmark, connects the two towns and offers some of the most spectacular views of this rugged area. Durango has air service several times a day connecting to Phoenix, Denver and Dallas-Fort Worth by American and United Airlines.
