Love Notes

“A HUGE Thank You for making our wedding day absolutely spectacular!!! We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Your help with coordinating everything is truly appreciated, and (your) expertise showed on our wedding day. Everything ran so smooth!”

– Amy F.

“We had an amazing wedding weekend at Purgatory! It was really important to us to have everything outside to decrease covid risk for our guests. The purgatory team was very flexible with everything and helped us figure out the logistics of a completely outside ceremony and reception. The food was delicious for both our welcome dinner and reception! Thank you for helping us celebrate during this strange time!”

– Anne S.

“My wedding was a dream and everything went off without a hitch. The wedding sales manager is so sweet, professional, responsive and organized. She took care of us all night! The organization was key because all of our guests had to be shuttled back and forth between the ceremony and reception, and it went smooth. We are big foodies and wanted to make sure the food was prepared and ready in a timely manner and we were not disappointed. It was so delicious! We had our ceremony at Boyce, which is gorgeous and our reception in the festival tent. Some advice to couples in the tent: Make sure you invest in lighting! Thank you Purgatory for making our wedding perfect!!”

– Erika M.

Fun facts

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

I love couples with a good attitude who love the mountains!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

My favorite part of a wedding is right after the couple has finished their ceremony and is walking back down the aisle. You can see the love, joy, and relief on their faces. It is very sweet to witness!
