Estes Park, Colorado, a paradisal Rocky Mountain town, remains an idyllic wedding destination for so many sweethearts, primarily because of its spellbinding blend of natural beauty, world-class facilities, and swift access to the continent’s most beautiful national park. Naturally, couples spend hours upon hours sifting through Estes Park wedding venues in search of a magical, all-inclusive setting. That search typically leads couples to Black Canyon Inn, home to The Boulders, by far the town’s most luxurious wedding facility. It features 14,000 square feet of rustic opulence overlooking the head-turning Lumpy Ridge.
The Boulders at Black Canyon
Unlike all other Estes Park wedding venues, The Boulders at Black Canyon Inn embodies the spirit of the Rocky Mountains, with its floor-to-ceiling windows that open freely to Lumpy Ridge’s rugged, picturesque cliffs. Its towering ceilings feature custom-made chandeliers that provide the perfect amount of light, while the repurposed wooden flooring lends itself to hours upon hours of revelry in the form of an after-reception dance. Guests can swiftly exit the main ballroom to bask in the jaw-dropping scenery on the sprawling terrace, complete with visually-striking gas fire pits. The Boulders’ Salon Suite is a spacious, pre-ceremony sanctuary for soon-to-be brides, while the secretive “man cave” allows groomsmen to unwind via some tap beer and billiards.
A Memorable, Heartfelt Ceremony
Because The Boulders offers 14,000 square feet of newly-updated space (on several acres of private land), sweethearts can choose between an in-door ceremony (overlooking Lumpy Ridge) or an outdoor service in a sizable pavilion. As you can imagine, some couples prefer the soothing sounds of nature, including jovial birdsong, and the refreshing aromas that seep from the landscape’s tall pines and aspens. Our dedicated event planning staff has an extensive list of vendors that we have strong, long-standing relationships with, including some of the state’s finest photographers.
World-Class Catering Services
Black Canyon Inn is proud to be one of the only Estes Park wedding venues to boast its own catering team, a talented, passionate group of culinary professionals who specialize in large gatherings and celebrations. Black Canyon Catering spares no expense in an effort to craft sumptuous, utterly-delicious gourmet cuisines, which combine flawlessly with the team’s trademark plate presentation. Culinary delights range from sea scallops to pan-roasted duck and filet mignon.
