All you need is a wedding gown, rings and wedding license to marry at Blue Skies Inn. Our wedding venue is called A Pikes Peak Wedding, named for our nearby mountain. First you book a two night stay at our inn, then choose one of our all-inclusive wedding packages. Features include a ceremony officiant, pretty bridal bouquet, wedding cake and extensive photo package.

Favorite suites for romantic wedding stays are Blue Skies, Morning Glory and Sunset, all with whirlpool tubs and fireplaces. A full hot breakfast, delivered as room service, may be enjoyed in your own private sitting room.

Your summer ceremony will be held in our Waterfall or Woodland Garden which are full of flowers and surrounded by stately oaks. Sometimes a deer may wander by or a hummingbird may visit nearby flowers. Winter weddings may be held indoors by a cozy fireplace while some brides choose to wed in the snow. Our historic 1873 carriage house has just been restored and is now a wedding chapel that will seat 60 guests.

The bride may choose flowers and colors for her bouquet and a matching boutonniere for the groom.

A scrumptious wedding cake will be decorated with fresh flowers to match the bride's bouquet. You may choose flavors and fillings, too!

Wedding photos are taken during the ceremony and afterwards at streamside with a bed of rose petals underfoot. Your photos of Pikes Peak in the background will remind you forever of your wedding in Colorado mountains. At the end of the day, you will be given your negatives and a CD so that you may make as many enlargements as you wish. We shoot about 200 photos and the quantity increases with the number of your guests.

Within several days of your ceremony, we will post photos of you on the Pikes Peak Wedding website. It's fun to send an email to friends inviting them to pull up the website to see what you've done over the weekend. Friends and relatives from far and near who weren't able to attend will delight in seeing your wedding online.

At additional cost to the wedding package price, you may invite friends and family who will make your day special and memorable. We also welcome flower girls, ringbearers and wedding parties. Read less

While the venue was absolutely beautiful, the owner was a nightmare to work with. She was very inflexible about so many strange things. As part of the wedding package we had to book a suite for the night before and the night of the wedding. I stayed the night before and got ready in my suite. She would only allow 2 people in my suite besides me on the day of the wedding claiming she didn't want bridesmaids taking over the bathroom and keeping me from getting ready. She also wouldn't allow any photography on the grounds before the wedding unless I paid $250 per half hour claiming that her staff would have to supervise us. As a guest of the Inn I should have been able to have access to the gardens beforehand. Every extra thing I wanted that is part of a typical wedding (cake topper, guest book, favors, centerpieces, etc) were an additional charge because her staff would have to place then. And she kept going back on things that we had agreed on, such as cake delivery. 2 weeks before the wedding she decided I would have to pay an additional $40 for cake delivery. I had a dream bouquet and had provided pictures for her and agreed on the budget. On the wedding day she brought me my bouquet and it was NOTHING like what I had asked for. She incorporated other flowers that I had not asked for and the shape was totally different. And the hors d'oeuvres we chose were not the ones she served on the day of the wedding.
I loved the venue itself and honestly could not have asked for a more beautiful setting for my wedding but I want others to know how difficult and stressful it was dealing with Sally at A Pikes Peak Wedding.
