Have you been to Vail yet? There are places we visit that just stay with us, and Vail is one of those places. I don’t think there is a more quintessential Colorado mountain town than Vail. Strolling the streets of Vail feels like a different world altogether. In the summertime, stunning florals brim the edges of windows and visitors window shop from store to store. Nestled beside a babbling creek and surrounded with breathtaking mountains, Vail is a place that stays with you forever. If you are searching for a place to share your “I Dos” in this luxurious villa, then I know you are going to love The Sonnenalp Hotel as much as I do. This hotel is truly a timeless piece of the Vail experience. Sonnenalp Hotel weddings are one of the best ways ways to celebrate your wedding in the mountains of Colorado.
After an incredible summer photographing love stories all over Colorado and into Texas, I am thrilled to share more about one of our favorite unique Colorado wedding venues. The Sonnenalp is an award-winning hotel that is a true luxury experience within the town of Vail. I loved being able to walk out of my room to walk around this mountain town. Being back to the work we love so much after the Covid-19 pandemic has been a breath of fresh air. I have never seen such joy on my couple’s faces realizing their day and dreams had come true. After spending so much time in the mountains this season, I found the venues that are near and dear to my heart and my couples’ vision. Often our couples are seeking an experience unlike any other and an opportunity to capture their story in breathtaking vistas. Truly weddings at Sonnenalp Hotel are one of a kind, and I know you will adore this venue as much as I do. Vail’s surrounding mountain range allows us to do both so well for you. Selecting a venue inside Vail is an excellent way to ensure you are given the experience you desire for your entire wedding weekend.
This Swiss style hotel in Lionsgate Village is right across the street from The InterFaith Chapel. They are suited to celebrate your entire wedding weekend with you from your beautiful dining experience for your rehearsal dinner to your farewell (thesaurus) at your morning brunch. Sonnenalp weddings and rehearsals held in this gorgeous glass terrance are so unique to other Colorado wedding venues. They create a beautiful space for an intimate ceremony and a full scale reception underneath the Vail sky in their all glass terrace room at Luedwig’s restaurant.
For an intimate ceremony at the Sonnenalp Hotel you are offered a garden and creekside ceremony site. I love the intimate feeling of this ceremony space, while still sitting in the heart of beautiful Vail. Your guests can experience all Vail has to offer while being steps away from their room, your wedding ceremony, and reception space. In chillier months, Sonnenalp sits right across from the stunning Interfaith Chapel which offers services for wedding ceremonies. The interfaith chapel is an iconic Vail place that is lovely for a wedding service celebrating a diverse and open ceremony for our clients. The glass terrace room can hold a total of 100 guests and the Sonnenalp Bavarian room can accommodate 160 guests.
Our love for Sonnenalp runs deep and we love how unique this venue is against the stunning mountains surrounding Vail. A short drive from Shrine Pass, this venue would be a perfect location to plan couple portraits on the crest of this stunning pass. I cannot think of a more beautiful way to celebrate your wedding in Vail than with the Sonnenalp hotel. They offer an incredible spa experience for your guests and you and your bridal party. While treating your guests to some of the world’s best luxury hotel accommodations around. I had the joy of staying at Sonnenalp this fall in between engagement sessions on nearby Shrine Pass (a favorite of mine!)
As a part of booking with us, we offer add on portrait sessions and wedding weekend coverage to ensure we capture your full story as you envisioned. Engagement sessions are quite popular in the fall through spring months, and Vail is an adorable spot for engagements. I have a soft spot for winter mountain town engagements! With your engagement session booking, we offer dates and locations that are best suited to you and your partner. Creating Sonnenalp Hotel weddings begins with bringing on a phenomenal vendor team. We have some of the most talented, kind-hearted, and wonderful vendors on our lists, so make sure to request our recommendations when you book.
I was truly blown away by the gorgeous hotel accommodations, and I cannot wait to return. I ordered room services both in the evening for dinner and for breakfast the next morning, so I would have time to focus on work and rest in between sessions. Their dining experience is one of a kind, and I savored every bite. While I worked from my room, I lit the warm fireplace, sipped on Prosecco, and opened my balcony door to listen to the sounds drifting up from the Vail streets below. My room faced the Interfaith Chapel, and I found myself dreaming of the beautiful ceremonies this stunning venue has held. I am honored to celebrate my couple’s weddings and it is a gift to be a part of your journey. It was wonderful to pause and reflect on this last season and remember the moments just like so many of those celebrated at Sonnenalp and the Interfaith Chapel for so many wonderful couples.
