Happily Ever After Begins Here
With its endless mountain vistas and Victorian flair, Ouray is the ideal backdrop for your wedding celebration. Whether you're planning a casual outdoor wedding or an elegant black-tie event, you will find the perfect venue among our streets and mountains.
Awe-Inspiring Event Venues
Celebrate love right in downtown Ouray! For a more elegant affair, check into the Beaumont Hotel for our town's most popular destination wedding services. If you'd like to celebrate outside but stay within town, Ouray City park and Ridgeway State Park are also great options that have perfect grassed areas, accommodations, and great sights of the surroundings.
Not sure where the perfect outdoor place may be? Take a jeep tour and explore the Alpine Loop (Twin Falls in Yankee Boy Basin is gorgeous), or drive along Highway 550 and stop at Ironton Park ( the red, yellow, and orange aspen trees that surround that area would make for beautiful photos in the fall season), or stay close to town and hike up to Cascade Falls or the Amphitheater overlook. For even more gorgeous areas, go east of Ridgeway to find Debbie's Meadow in the Cimarrons or head west to Dallas Divide just off of Highway 62.
There's nothing quite like sharing vows under an incredible sky in the midst of nature. Consider finding the perfect spot on our public lands. Surrounding lands are free to use and a permit is required only if your guest list is over 75 people. Those interested can obtain a free permit available through the Forest Service. Be sure to check with the their office for any restrictions in the area you plan to use for your celebration.
