Shanley and Christopher's Wedding

We originally had decided to get married in Vail in December and after going back and forth about the fact that it was such a busy month and the weather is sometimes questionable in December in Colorado we opted to go with April (after the high-season, but when there was still skiing...spring skiing!) It was a great decision, the weather turned out perfect! We had quite a bit of snow the week leading up to the wedding and it was sunny and 60 the day of! I gave all of our vendors great reviews, because they fully deserve it! They all went the extra mile to make our day perfect and we are so appreciative of everything!

The wedding mapper was a life saver! All of our guests were from out of town and did not know the area so we were able to use this site to get them familiar with where they would be staying in relation to the ceremony and wedding. It's very user friendly and gives you great options to tailor it to your needs.

Bands/Live Entertainment

The Band was so much fun! Everyone danced the entire time and we received a ton of comments about how much fun everyone had and how much they loved the band. We actually also used a few of the members for our ceremony (2 played the acoustic guitar and 1 on the piano). It added such a cool element to the ceremony and really made it special!

The guys are wonderful to work with and I would recommend them in a second to anyone!

We used Vail Coach to transport our wedding party to and from the church and at the end of the night to shuttle guests back to their hotels. They were so great to work with and were very involved in helping develop our timeline so that everything ran smoothly!

Robin Proctor and her assistant were wonderful to work with on the wedding! She captured everything we asked her to and then some.

They were very instrumental in keeping everyone on schedule the day of the wedding and made us all very comfortable. They really made the pictures and the day run smoothly and still managed to keep it fun!

We just recieved the photos and they are gorgeous!!!

Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

We had our rehearsal dinner at the Vail ChopHouse. It was so much fun and we received a ton of compliments on how perfect it was. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the fish was excellent...not to mention everything else being extremely tasty as well! Their management and service staff were a pleasure to work with and really made the night run smoothly.

We can not say enough wonderful things about the staff here and the food.

Sweet Pea did such a wonderful job on our flowers for the wedding! The owner, Lisa was so great to work with on everything and really went the extra mile to get everything just the way we wanted it. We had seen hurricane candles that we loved and she tracked them down and placed the order! She really made everything perfect!

The day would not have turned out as perfect as it did, had it not been for Paige and CC from Colorado Wedding Co! They were so great working and coordinating with all of our vendors. Having them there completely took all of the pressure off of us the day of so that we could enjoy a stress free afternoon.

We had a couple of small things happen during the day and they problem solved as things came up and we never even had to know there was an issue.

Hiring them was the by far the best decision we made in all of this and we made a lot of decisions!

We fell in love with the BC Chapel the moment we walked in! It has such a wonderful charm and is absolutely beautiful inside and out!

We also loved our minister, Tim Wilbanks. He works with the Presbyterian Church and was so accomodating for our every request and delivered a beautiful ceremony. We couldn't have been happier with our church and minister!

LionSquare Lodge
Vail, CO

I would recommend this location for anyone and will continue to stay here years to come! The staff was so accomodating for our wedding group and on top of every little detail. We actually had our room block here and with the Montaneros which offered our guests a variety of options.

The location is perfect! You are right next to the Gondola and Lionshead Village.

Be sure to ask for Courtney Hastrich for your group requests...she was a pleasure to work with and made the week extra special!
