Alpine Weddings

Created with Sketch.

Durango offers magnificent nature-scapes like the Animas River and the many mountain ranges all around. Is there a more beautiful place to get married? Here are some lodging, venues, and reception area ideas featuring everything Durango represents!

Purgatory Resort is 30 minutes north of town and, while known for its ski runs, it also offers a gorgeous all-inclusive wedding venue. Different locations spanning across the mountain give you and your guests stunning mountain views. Riding the chairlift up to the alter is an incredible mountain version of a limousine! In the winter, you can even ski to your “I do’s”. The resort has ample room to lodge your guests while Purgy’s & Dante’s restaurant spaces transform into a magical reception area.

River Bend Ranch rests in the heart of the Animas Valley. With its private pond, pendulous willows, and perfect view of Missionary Ridge, your wedding pictures will surely shine on the mantel. A heated reception area gives a rustic and casual feel to your special day. This property has a cabin as well as RV hookups for you and your guests!

The Bar D Chuckwagon has hosted thousands of guests during its summer dinner and entertainment production. However, few know that you can also get married in the quaint chapel on the grounds! The stain glass, waterfall, and garden cater to an intimate group of friends and family. Tucked at the base of Missionary’s red cliffs, the forested area composes a unique cowboy setting.

A family forward town, Durango is a wonderful place to get married and settle down! Let us know how we can help you join the Durango community!
