As gorgeous as all of Colorado is from the eastern plains to the western slope, there is one quaint mountain town that holds my heart the most. Crested Butte, Colorado is one of my favorite locations in the entire world, and I have spent many, many hours in this lovely spot. Crested Butte weddings are gorgeous in every season. From stunning wildflowers in the summer months to pristine snow-covered slopes in the winter, we believe that Crested Butte will make all of you elegant mountain wedding dreams come true.

Summer in Crested Butte is lush with greenery, sunshine, and wildflowers in June and July. This gorgeous valley town reminds me of the garden of Eden during the summer months, and the views from every angle are simply breathtaking. Planning a summer wedding in Crested Butte may prove challenging, but worth it.

We highly recommend connecting with a wedding planner who can bring your vision to life. You may need to book your wedding venue months, if not a year or more in, advance as this is a very popular location for summer Colorado weddings.

Fall is another one of our favorite seasons in Crested Butte. Timing is everything when planning your wedding during this season because the peak of our aspen colors are just to die for. The peak season really varies between September and October to depending on how much moisture we have during the winter, spring, and summer months. However, fall is just so lovely here. The weather is mild and may have a few snow flurries. Again, we highly recommend connecting with your wedding planner and venue right away to decide a perfect date for fall colors.

Hiking in the mountains in the fall is amazing for you and your wedding guests. The aspens turn bright yellow during the peak of autumn, which is simply breathtaking for your bridal portraits. We just love fall in Crested Butte!

Spring in Colorado is often a quieter time with late season snow covering our slops, vacationers skiing the last few days of snow on the mountainside, and dormant blooms slowly begin to thaw. Crested Butte like all of Colorado’s mountain towns is just as lovely as ever in spring. We believe this might be just the right moment for you if you are planning a Crested Butte wedding with only a few months to plan. The town tends to be a little sleepier during spring which may be ideal for your mountain wedding.

At times the weather is quite unpredictable from March through May, yet your wedding planner and venue can help you plan all the details to ensure a beautiful wedding day for you. The views in springs are beyond belief as some bright greens begin to pop up on the aspen trees and snow still touches the mountains around the town. No matter the season this picturesque mountain town is perfect for your wedding!
