Many Georgians head out west during and after college for a variety of reasons. Boulder, Colorado is a beautiful and popular spot so we thought this would be a great unique pick for a destination wedding and we were right. We found the perfect venue, Hotel Boulderado!
For more than one hundred years, Hotel Boulderado has been one of the most beloved places to be married in Colorado, hosting its first ceremony in 1913. The landmark hotel welcomes all couples who want to celebrate love. Thousands have been married on the romantic balcony of the original cantilevered cherrywood staircase overlooking the famous atrium lobby. The building is a charming mix of Italian Renaissance and Spanish Revival architecture where turn-of-the-century touches abound. Contemporary comforts blend seamlessly with the opulent ambiance. Welcoming inclusiveness is the hallmark of the hotel’s brand of Rocky Mountain hospitality, giving guests the best of both the past and the 21st century. Hotel Boulderado has three wedding packages that offer excellent options and value, making it easy for couples to start their own story in an extraordinary place where so many shared lives have been launched.
Couples can tie the knot on the grand staircase, toast over an elegant buffet, and dance the night away in the ballroom. They can choose among polished event spaces that are the perfect backdrop for memorable rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies and receptions of up to 275 guests. Couples can celebrate in bliss with 10,000 square feet of flexible space including the restaurants, Spruce Farm & Fish, License No. 1 and The Corner Bar. These spaces can be utilized for any wedding related event such as staging rooms, rehearsals, receptions, after parties and post-wedding brunches.
There are 156 rooms in either a modern mountain or historic Victorian style. For couples who seek more private accommodations, there is a meticulously restored 1900s Carriage House across the street that sleeps 15 in four suites, three of which can connect to create additional communal space while retaining the intimate atmosphere.
Food is at the center of every celebration and Hotel Boulderado’s creative cuisine is renowned for the freshest ingredients from the finest purveyors. Guests will be amazed with decadent dishes selected from chef-curated menus. Options include butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, grand buffet stations and elegant plated meals. The expert team of culinary artists and banquet staff take great care in every detail.
The hotel has three restaurants and lounges on site—the signature restaurant, Spruce Farm & Fish; a fun speakeasy, License No. 1, which has a pool table, dual dart boards, skee ball, a juke box, and a photo booth; and The Corner Bar, a more casual venue open from 11 a.m. to midnight. For a break from the action, guests order room service or adjourn to Boxcar Coffee Bar in the lobby for coffee, tea, juices and handmade pastries. From happy hour on, guests can enjoy all of the restaurants’ cuisine while taking advantage of the lobby’s congenial and comfortable seating.
