One of the days we were looking at wedding venues was totally rainy and cloudy. So I didn’t take any pictures of my own. However, these were interesting so I will share links to their web sites: Blue Skies Inn in Manitou Springs; Crescent Lily Inn, a bed and breakfast right down town in Colorado Springs; Black Forest Bed and Breakfast, several miles out of the Springs; Hillside Gardens, a lovely setting in an unlikely spot in the middle of Colorado Springs; and my personal favorite, Briarhurst Manor in Manitou Springs. All were lovely. Some had a view of Pikes Peak in the background. So if you are planning a wedding in Colorado Springs, I would recommend looking at these places. There are others. But I didn’t have time to personally look at them.
A beautiful church in Colorado Springs is Shove Chapel on the campus of Colorado College. It is a beautiful Gothic Cathedral in a lovely setting. This is a much more formal setting, but you wouldn’t have to worry about an unexpected shower!
And finally, the most famous chapel in the Springs–the Air Force Academy Chapel. It is a beautiful place. However, either the bride or groom must have graduated from one of the U. S. service academies.
