If you dream of a wedding that is more than simply a lovely day, why not give your guests a magical experience that will transport them out of their lives into a High Country paradise?

The region their vendors serve is abundant in majestic peaks, sweeping prairie, wildflower-filled meadows, rushing rivers, tumbling creeks and all that you could possibly want to make your mountain wedding dreams come true. Do you want a snowy wedding that sparkles, a summer wedding with horses grazing, an autumn wedding in a grove of golden aspens, or the sound of a babbling brook as your soundtrack at your altar? With HRWA, all of these are possible! They will work together with you to bring your vision to life leaving you with the most beautiful and meaningful memories you can imagine. Visiting their website, you’ll find a wide range of vendors in many categories: Wedding Planners/Coordinators, Officiants, Hair/Makeup, Florists, Bakers, Caterers, Rentals, DJs & Musicians, Custom Invitations, Transportation, Photographers/ Videographers and more.

Love Notes
My husband and I knew that we wanted to be married in Buena Vista, Colorado as it was a sentimental place to each put us. We are so thankful for the Heart of the Rockies Wedding Association. We were unsure of where to start in the planning process, as this was our first time planning a wedding. The Heart of the Rockies website made the entire process so much easier. When we found their website, it was like striking gold. From their online membership listings, we were able to find our caterer, event rentals, florist and so much more. It was reassuring knowing these vendors were professional and knew the area. I can’t stress how thankful we are for this association of amazing people! It was an incredible day thanks to their help.

Fun facts

How did the venue become a wedding venue?

13 years ago, Heart of the Rockies Wedding Association was formed when only a handful of vendors had a vision that their region was ideal for mountain weddings. This was before “Destination Weddings” was even a hot topic in the wedding industry. Now, weddings have grown into a massive business in the Colorado High Country. We’ve grown to an energized membership of 70 and we continue to expand. We’re a passionate collective who give fantastic service because we love getting to make people happy during such a special time in their lives. We especially enjoy introducing so many wonderful couples and their families and friends to this land we are so privileged to call home.
