We could not have asked for a more perfect day! Alysun was so wonderful to work with and we are very grateful to her and the staff at the Boulderado. Our guests were raving about the food and the overall experience. The staff were super friendly, professional, and they did not miss a beat. The Boulderado is truly a unique and gorgeous setting and we are so happy we had our wedding here!

Hotel Boulderado was a beautiful setting for our wedding! The ceremony on the staircase was incredible and the mezzanine for our reception was perfect! The food and drink service were excellent and the employees at the hotel were so hospitable. The entire day and evening were perfect! Most of our guests also stayed at the hotel for several days and received amazing service. With so much nearby and on-site at the hotel, it is a PERFECT location for those with a lot of people traveling in. We will be coming back for our anniversary as often as possible!

How did the venue become a wedding venue?
On May 17, 1911, Lee Woods & Leila Leonard unknowingly started a tradition that would last over 100 years. As the first couple to be married at Hotel Boulderado, Leila and Lee began their new lives together by descending the hotel's Grand Staircase to celebrate on the beautiful mezzanine overlooking the lobby. Since then, Hotel Boulderado's tradition of wedding ceremonies on our staircase has been embraced by countless couples celebrating love.
What is your favorite part about a wedding?
For us, it is all about the ceremony. Watching couples descend our century-old staircase with their friends and family gathered around is a moment that never gets old. It gets us every time.
