Sapphire Celebrations has been planning weddings at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs for over 16 years. In fact, we’re a preferred planner for the resort—the longest-standing one! From a 9-person elopement to a 1500-person military ball, we’ve seen it all. But while we love planning every kind of event here, weddings are our favorite! Today we’re here to share our favorite ceremony and reception venues at The Broadmoor. Because with 13 in-house locations, couples have a tough choice ahead of them.
Ceremony Venues at The Broadmoor
The Broadmoor offers indoor and outdoor options for couples hosting their wedding ceremony. All of them are stunning, so you really can’t go wrong! However, these three have risen above the pack to become our favorites.
West Tower Lawn
This venue blends the elegance of The Broadmoor Resort with the rustic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. Green and lush, it has maple, pine, and cherry trees growing at its edge. You won’t find a more picturesque backdrop for your Colorado ceremony! This is also the largest ceremony space at The Broadmoor, with seating for up to 500 guests.
At this ceremony location, you can enjoy all the spectacular views The Broadmoor has to offer in one place. Your guests can feast their eyes on the sparkling Cheyenne Lake, the resort’s West Building, and the mountains as you say, “I do.” This is one of the most popular ceremony spots, and once you visit, you will fall in love!
For couples who prefer a traditional setting for their religious ceremony, the Pauline Chapel is located right across the street. The architecture is reminiscent of Spanish Colonial Revival, while the inside is designed to look like an early Christian basilica.
Reception Venues at the BRoadmoor
Likewise, The Broadmoor offers a multitude of options for hosting your reception. From elegant ballrooms to rustic lodges, there’s something for everyone! Here are a few of our favorites.
After your ceremony and cocktail hour on the West Tower Lawn, your guests can head to the nearby Main Ballroom for a formal dinner and dancing. This ballroom is original to the resort and has been open since 1918! With glittering chandeliers and ornate charm, this space is the epitome of luxury. It allows for seating up to 170 guests.
Lake Terrace Dining Room
Steps from the Lakeside Terrace, you’ll find the Lake Terrace Dining Room. This space is a favorite with our clients, with marble flooring and high ceilings. The elegant details and views of the lake provide unmatched charm! This space has a minimum guest requirement of 150, and can comfortably hold up to 250.
Do you want that rustic Colorado look but with the service of a five-star resort? Look no further than the Cheyenne Lodge! Located slightly off The Broadmoor’s grounds in the surrounding mountains, it’s the perfect setting for your celebration. Through large glass doors that give the space an indoor/outdoor feel, your guests will enjoy breathtaking views of Colorado Springs!
These ceremony and reception venues at The Broadmoor are just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many options to create a wedding celebration that is entirely your own. We love planning weddings here and feel so grateful to be in partnership with them!
