Many couples envision exchanging their vows in a mountain meadow, knee-deep in flowers, but are faced with issues of accessibility. Our wedding venue 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. The garden seats up to 200 guests, however, we only provide 125 chairs. Thus, if you have more than 125 guests, you will need to make other arrangements to accommodate additional seating.
The park pavilion measures 30 by 12 feet and is 25.5 feet wide and is perfect for an event location or reception. It's completely enclosed on two sides, the third side has a tan all-weather curtain and the fourth side (looking north) is completely open. The pavilion fits 125 people and has plenty of electrical outlets on each wall.
Want some more coverage at your reception? Rent our 10'x15' white tent with removable sides and clear windows! Most people use this tent as an additional space for the DJ, a band, food/drink set-up, and more! The cost is $200 and can only be rented by parties who are renting the pavilion.
There are no kitchen facilities on-site and there are no changing rooms. If you are hosting a dinner, you will need to rent linens, china, silverware, etc. When booking the garden, you have the use of the garden for three (3) hours. When booking the pavilion for a reception along with the garden you may use it the entire day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. There can be no assurance of the area being free from snow from mid-September to mid-June. Snow may be removed with permission from Mt. Crested Butte town officials.
The Wedding Garden is located about one mile north from the base area of Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR). We encourage guests to carpool (limited parking), walk or ride the bus! From the base area, guests can take a Mountain Express Bus to get to the wedding garden. In the summer, this bus runs every hour mid-week, and on the weekends, it runs every 30-minutes until 10 p.m. The stop for the Wedding Garden is "Mt. CB Town Hall". If you'd like private transportation to and from the venue, you can contact Alpine Express or Dolly's Mountain Shuttle.
We allow the wedding garden and pavilion to be booked separately Monday-Thursday and require them to be booked together Friday-Sunday. Due to snow, venue is closed 10/03/21-06/14/22.
