Overview

Telluride is tucked into a box canyon surrounded by 13,000 and 14,000-foot peaks… the town of Telluride is just eight blocks wide and twelve blocks long.

With the town’s colorful Victorian-era homes, clapboard storefronts, boutiques, art galleries, gourmet restaurants, historic buildings and more, Telluride is a delight to explore. Their citizens are committed to preserving Telluride’s historically significant architecture, open space, traditional design elements and, most of all, Telluride’s small-town mountain lifestyle.

Perched above the valley floor at 9,500 feet  and a vision of alpine elegance, the European-style Mountain Village tempts guests with the best of everything in the Telluride region.  The two towns are connected by a free, 13 minute scenic gondola ride – the only transportation system of its kind in North America.

What We Love

Telluride’s size and gondola means a car-free vacation. Once you arrive, everything you could want to do is accessible by foot. Hiking, biking, ski trails and more are right outside any front door.

The small town feel extends to it's wedding guests - it's not uncommon for the bartender at one of the historic bars to remember meeting the couple and making sure that you are taken care of as a result.

What to Know

Telluride is a popular wedding destination location – make sure that you book your wedding early.

Early Spring and Late Fall in the Mountains can be snowy and muddy, so make sure that you consider wedding dates carefully.

As a ski resort, certain winter dates are more expensive than others, so make sure to consider the winter schedule of events when selecting your wedding date.
