You've found your soulmate, now what?
You’ve said yes to each other and now you’re both ready to make your dreams come true; to exchange your vows, take the plunge, and get hitched. Copper is already one of your favorite places on earth, but you might not realize that it’s also one of the most amazing wedding destinations to top your list.
The perfect destination wedding
Shannon Bianco, Sales Manager here at Copper Mountain, was working at Copper 10 years ago when she and her husband got engaged and began planning their wedding.
“Our first instinct was to have our wedding back in Michigan because we’re both from there. But we decided there wasn’t a better place that described us both more than here at Copper Mountain,” says Shannon.
Shannon and her husband wanted their family and friends to experience the grandeur and all that they both love about Copper, so they rounded up their group of 120 for one of their most memorable life events.
In fact, most weddings at Copper include 30-80% of guests arriving from out of state.
“There’s just so much to do here, and no chance of anyone getting bored,” says Shannon.
Copper's amazing ceremony venues
This is Copper’s enchanting on-mountain ceremony location. You and your guests will have the chance to board the American Eagle chairlift and float above the pines, heading up to 11,200 feet to revel in the breathtaking panorama of the Ten Mile Range of mountains at the summit. You’ll never forget this experience.
The Copper Mountain Chapel, a slightly smaller venue, also provides those spectacular Ten Mile Range views in a cozy setting.
Copper Creek Vista
This larger and beautiful venue sits at the base of the Super Bee Lift and the Copper Creek Golf Course, where you’ll be stunned by views of the golf course and that awesome Ten Mile Range. Because it’s directly in front of Copper Station, you’ll have an easy transition to your reception as well.
The Mezzanine sits on the third floor of Copper Station and overlooks Copper Creek Golf Course giving you that rustic mountain lodge feel and a gorgeous view. It’s also one of the larger ceremony venues.
Copper's mesmerizing reception venues
For larger wedding parties this is the perfect location. Grand Hall overlooks scenic Copper Creek Golf Course complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious deck (perfect for cocktails) and a dramatically beautiful backdrop for your memorable affair.
JJ’s Rocky Mountain Tavern
For a smaller gathering, JJ’s Rocky Mountain Tavern sets the tone with rustic mountain charm in a cozy, inviting atmosphere. Imagine exclusive use of the patio on a glorious and sunny Copper day, where you’ll soak in the superb view of the Copper Creek Golf Club.
Copper’s most intimate and elegant venue will enchant you and your guests. At the heart of Center Village, CB Grille offers private, fireside dining and unique Colorado cuisine. The Grille is also available for rehearsal dinners and small weddings.
Getting the party started
No matter what season you plan your festivities, Copper’s multitude of activities will satisfy you and your wedding party group. Located just 75 miles west of Denver and with easy access from I-70, Copper Mountain makes travel plans a snap. Once your guests have arrived, you’ll need minimal transportation since you can walk from nearby lodging to most activities, shops, restaurant and the mountain. The Summit Stage, Summit County’s free public transportation, offers free bus service throughout Summit County from Copper Mountain, including Frisco, Dillon, Breckenridge, and Silverthorne.
Summer destination wedding fun
Once you’ve assembled your entourage, you'll get to decide on exactly which exciting summer activities to include in your getaway.
