Once a farm owned by a Basque family, Gorrono Ranch is a mid-mountain ski lodge at the Telluride Ski Resort that combines rustic beauty with quiet elegance. Sitting serenely among meadowlands, Gorrono Ranch has outdoor decks with magnificent views across the ski area to the Wilsons. There is a main timber lodge with two dining rooms and beautiful stone fireplaces. There are also smaller cabins that can be used as dressing rooms or for wine or whisky tastings.

Perched high above Telluride and surrounded by towering peaks, San Sophia Overlook is a stunning locale for a wedding. The wedding party and guests arrive via the Gondola to a ridge on the Telluride Ski Resort that looks down at the town below and across to the San Sophia Range. Surrounded by majestic spruce trees, the grassy amphitheater has room for up to 250 guests and a wooden deck for the wedding party. Contact Telluride Ski Resort.

With jaw dropping views of the Wilsons and a wedding site nestled in an old growth aspen forest, Upper Grey Head truly delivers a wedding experience like no other.  It is perched on a mesa approximately 9 miles from Telluride. There are no existing structures on the site so large special event tents must be utilized. Contact Soiree Telluride.

The preserve and adjacent Telluride Town Park give couples the opportunity for an in-town wedding surrounded by stunning natural beauty. The preserve stretches from the trailhead at South Pine Street into Bear Creek Canyon where peaks tower over quiet forests and wildflower-strewn meadows, ultimately leading to the spectacular upper falls. Town Park offers multiple spaces for weddings including the pavilion and a wooded setting near the lower falls. Contact Telluride Parks and Recreation.

The peace of a secluded mountain farmstead combines with the breathtaking drama of soaring mountains at Schmid Ranch. The ranch, a historical property home-steaded by the Schmid family in 1882, lies 10 miles west of Telluride. This versatile place offers multiple rustic outbuildings, meadows of wildflowers and groves of stately aspens – a gorgeous blank canvas on which couples can impose celebrations that range from a casual barbecue to an elegant candlelit dinner. Contact Schmid Ranch.
