Top Five New West Slope Wedding Venues
If you live on Colorado’s western slope, you probably know how great it is over here! Well the secret is getting out, and more and more weddings in Colorado are taking place here on the west slope. From Aspen to Telluride, Durango to Crested Butte, and every cute little town in between, new west slope wedding venues are popping up every year! Today we’ll be highlighting the top five new west slope wedding venues.
Orchard River View
Starting here at home in the Grand Valley, Orchard River View is a new rustic wood barn in Palisade is the hottest new venue in the area! With a huge beautiful barn, luscious green lawn overlooking the Colorado River, nestled among the peach orchards, and 360 views of the Bookcliffs and Grand Mesa, this is an incredibly sought-after wedding venue in Palisade.

Spring Creeks Ranch
One of our most anticipated new west slope wedding venues is Spring Creeks Ranch over in Carbondale! Renovating a historic barn, the venue promises a mix of elegance and rustic history. The ranch has great views of the mountains, most notably Mt. Sopris, with a creek running through the property. There is no shortage of great photo opportunities here! Reach out to Jes here to have a look around.
The Venue at Citizen’s State Bank
The newest venue on the west slope is at Citizen’s State Bank in Ouray! With a rooftop space to host 50 people, an indoor area to accommodate up to 100 (perfect for rainy summer afternoons!) and amazing views of the 360 mountains around Ouray, this venue is sure to be a hit! It opens this summer, and we cannot wait to show you more!
Mesa Park Vineyards
This winery along Palisade’s Fruit & Wine Byway was purchased by Laura and her husband last year and has quickly made a name for itself in both the wine world and the wedding world! 2019 will be its first full year as a wedding venue, offering on-site bridal suite, vineyards and an overlook of Mt. Garfield on the horizon! The yard is the perfect spot to get married beneath the shade of the trees, with a multitude of backdrops for your photos. We have a soft spot for the winery pup, Daryl, too 😉
Okay, okay. You got us. This isn’t a “new” venue really – but with their new renovations of the space, Hotel Colorado’s reveal of their overhauled venue has us just as excited as if it were new! The Melville family bought the hotel in May of 2018, with the plan of renovating through multiple phases over a 5-10 year period. They decided to focus on meeting space and ballrooms first to be able to show modern, elegant and functional space to appeal to groups and weddings. They will then move on to guestrooms, restaurant and public areas over the next several years. They are committed to bringing Hotel Colorado back to her former glory!
