"Cayton Photography is absolutely fantastic! Very prompt and professional, and they make beautiful photos.

"The Garden of the Gods Club was absolutely amazing. The venue and view is simply gorgeous. They followed every tiny instruction I had for the setup of the tables and favors. We had our own personal waitress for the cocktail hour and reception, which was pampering I didn't expect (and could easily have gotten used to!) I just wish we could have had the party go all night instead of stopping at midnight!"

Rehearsal Dinner:

Rehearsal Dinner - Flying W Ranch

3330 Chuckwagon Rd
Colorado Springs, CO 80919

"Such a fun thing to do with people from out of town! My only complaint was that it was misleading. We had been told we would have a private room for our event, and we did not - we had to sit outside with everyone else - this meant we did not get to do the usual rehearsal dinner things like the toasts, bridal party gifts, etc. Disappointing, but still fun."

Attraction:

Cave of the Winds

"Cave of the Winds is one of Colorado’s great natural wonders. There are several different tours to choose from to explore the amazing underground caves which are over 500 million years old!"

Attraction:

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

4250 Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Road
Colorado Springs, CO, United States

"Literally sitting on the side of Cheyenne Mountain, this is one of the only mountainside zoos in the world! They’re a leader in conservation, captive breeding, and animal care. Plus, the view from the mountain is spectacular."

Attraction:

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

"This museum and theatre is special to Jenny because she used to have her dance recitals on this stage! They also have a very good art museum that was renovated a few years ago."

Attraction:

Garden of the Gods

"Our wedding ceremony will be overlooking this gorgeous natural wonder, but a drive or hike through the park is always wonderful. Bring your camera, as you are sure to see plenty of wildlife and breathtaking views."

Attraction:

Pikes Peak Cog Railway

515 Ruxton Avenue
Manitou Springs, CO, United States

"Visiting the top of Pikes Peak is always a beautiful sight, though the drive up the side of the mountain can be a bit scary. That’s one of the reasons that the Cog Railway is such a great attraction! Fun fact: it’s known as “The World’s Highest Cog Railway”. You’ll get to spend 30-40 minutes at the top of Pikes Peak, and see beautiful Colorado sights the whole way up and down the mountain that you could never see on the road."

Attraction:

Seven Falls

7 Falls
Colorado Springs, CO, United States

"Seven Falls is just what it sounds like – seven waterfalls in one! Nestled deep in Cheyenne Canyon, water cascades 181 feet in 7 different ways. It’s been dubbed the “Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado.” And at night, the falls are beautifully lit up"

Movie Theater:

Kimball's Peak Three Theater

115 E Pikes Peak Ave
Colorado Springs, CO 80903

"This is a great little movie theater (and also a wine bar!) that usually shows more artsy movies, though still mainstream. It is a perfect stop if you want to have a romantic night on the town while you're here."

Movie Theater:

Tinseltown (Movie Theater)

1545 E Cheyenne Mountain Blvd
Colorado Springs, CO 80906

"If you happen to have some time to kill and have an urge to see a movie, this is a great movie theater. All stadium seating and recently remodeled, plus their popcorn is delicious."
