Outdoor Spaces

Piney River Ranch is postcard-perfect for those wanting to revel in the natural world. Moose might be spotted at the lake during the ceremony, in addition to the 360-degree alpine views. And even when guests are “inside,” open walls make the structure feel like the great outdoors. | Vail Lifestyle Magazine Summer 2016

Rain, snow or shine, venues with indoor/outdoor combinations allow for beautiful scenes and peace of mind

No matter what brings people to Vail, the mountains are the main event. From sun-dappled aspen groves to pine-scented riverbeds, it’s a beautiful and wild world. When couples plan their wedding day, the scenery is often a vivid part of the package. But if an early-season snowstorm or riotous afternoon shower rolls through, those sleeveless dresses and outdoor champagne toasts are less appealing. For those who don’t want to give up the mountain mystique, but want inside options just in case, venues with both indoor and outdoor spaces are a good choice. Whether it’s a covered patio or a wall of windows that allows for an unobstructed view, many establishments offer the best of both worlds: mountain scenes without weather-related stress.
