At the heart of Ouray County, one of the most filmed and photographed locations on Earth, Ridgway is the perfect place for a destination wedding. Your special day can be a lavish over the top wedding, a small romantic celebration, or a mountain-casual adventure to show off your outdoor spirit. With our experienced wedding planners, florists, catering, tent rentals and a variety of venues – nothing will hold you back from making the perfect memories.
Phenomenal nature, amenities and services make Ridgway a spectacular wedding destination. Our comfortable range of accommodations include bed and breakfasts, historical hotels, modern hotels, southwestern-style lodging, and quaint inns. Several of these facilities and our restaurants and community centers have meeting and party spaces, though by far the most popular gathering spaces are outside in parks, meadows and among the trees.
Whether your brides maids, groomsmen or extended family need a little spa time or a heart-pounding adventure before your big day, the Ridgway area offers diverse options for all ages. Hot spring soaking, paddle boarding on the reservoir, jeep touring, horseback riding, golfing, and cross country skiing are just a few of the many, many activities to be found in and around our main shopping and restaurant district.
Plus, each season offers its own special nuance to your special occasion. A winter gathering with the backdrop of snow and evergreen offers the contrast of cozy indoor time with brisk, outdoor excitement. The bright colors of spring, when the aspen trees bud and the wildflowers start to bloom, is a quiet time of anticipation when you can explore away from the crowds. In summer, the ranches are covered with green hay pastures and blossoms in full color, while the festivals and summer concerts liven up the town parks and the mountains ring with hikers, bikers, jeepers and outdoor adventurers. Then, fall brings the rich glow of fall's palette of reds, yellows, amber and gold when we celebrate rich harvests and the circle of life.
Let us welcome your wedding party and help you create special memories. Ridgway is here to help you celebrate your love.
