The Mountain Wedding Garden 
Crested Butte
Wildflower Capital of Colorado

Dazzling summer displays of wildflowers are made possible in this beautiful area by abundant moisture falling in the surrounding Elk Mountains. Their unusual east-west orientation holds winter snow and acts as protection from prevailing winds.
Many couples envision exchanging their vows in a Rocky Mountain meadow, knee-deep in flowers, but are faced with issues of accessibility for family, guests, musicians, etc. Our site has lush meadows nearby, a beautiful garden, and practical amenities. A flagstone aisle transitions into the vows area, where the views are breathtaking. The garden is radiant with traditional garden flowers and wildflowers, hanging baskets, shrubs and trees.

Seeing is believing!

Mountain Wedding Garden

"We had an absolutely positive experience. . . . we thought the garden/pavilion were extremely reasonably priced and the views cannot be beat. "

"The photographs of the garden simply do not do it justice. We were absolutely delighted!"

Mt. Crested Butte Wedding Garden Gallery

"Our friends said that this was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. The views are so stunning, I got chills the first time my husband and I saw the setting."


The Crested Butte Mountain Wedding Garden is a beautiful wedding and event site tucked in a quiet town park in Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado. It is a joint project of the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival and the Town of Mt. Crested Butte. The magnificent mountain backdrop and spectacular wildflowers make our garden the perfect Colorado outdoor wedding site, as well as an ideal location for your party or special event. The Elk Mountains, hills of wildflowers and, in the fall, golden aspens, are quite simply breathtaking.


It is our goal to support local economies by providing an accessible outdoor wedding and event location in a beautiful mountain setting. The Mountain Garden is a project conceived and sponsored by the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
