The Lodge at Breckenridge Weddings

Updated January 7, 2024

What is the feel of a Lodge at Breckenridge wedding?

From their site:

With the Rockies as your backdrop and our lodge as your stage, your wedding day (and photos) will be magnificent. Nestled cliffside overlooking Breckenridge Ski Resort, The Lodge at Breckenridge is a boutique hotel with rustic Colorado charm and breathtaking views. Your guests will enjoy a relaxing mountain-top getaway and alpine adventure. And you’re just a quick shuttle ride from historic Main Street Breckenridge for shopping, dining, festivals, and more.

Your wedding begins in the Foyer where friends and family gather near the fireplace with a backdrop of panoramic views from every window. Next, your ceremony is celebrated on breathtaking Sky View Deck, followed by an indoor reception in Mountain View Ballroom, with modern culinary creations and signature cocktails.

Vibe: Upscale mountain feel.

Favorite Part: The Sky Veiw deck features beautiful views of the Breckenridge ski slopes and mountains.

Overall Impressions: This venue is a perfect spot for couples wanting a mountain wedding with the easy access of Denver airports for guests.

Where is the Lodge at Breckenridge located?

The Lodge at Breckenridge can be found at 112 Overlook Dr, Breckenridge, CO 80424.
Up in the hills above Breckenridge, you’ll feel like you’re driving to a private residence before you suddenly appear at the Lodge at Breckenridge’s parking lot.

Where do I get ready at the Lodge?

The nice things about hosting your wedding at the Lodge at Breckenridge, is that there is lodging on site for your guests. This makes the end of the party super convenient because folks don’t have to worry about driving late at night.

You can choose to get ready in one of these lodge spaces if you like. Some of the rooms are larger and features great views of the mountains.

The lodge has also added two new detached houses, The Alpine house and the Summit house. Both of these spaces features kitchen, dining, living, and bedrooms and are a great option for staying with your close friends or family. They also provide a little more space for getting ready.

What is the ceremony space like?

Ceremonies take place on the deck of the lodge, adjacent to the indoor dinner and dancing reception space. The Sky View Deck can be configured in several different layouts depending on size and preferred views.  I encourage you to take a look at Google Earth and get a sense for where the sun will be when you say “I do”. Then work with the staff to set your ceremony site up in the direction with the best light.  If you orient it the wrong way you’ll be dealing with harsh shadows on your faces. But if you set it up right, you’ll have a beautiful backlit glow.

*Note: there are some logistics to consider when it comes to your entrance to the ceremony site, depending on which way you orient the ceremony. It’s definitely worth a trip to the lodge to look at all your options!

What is the reception space like?

The reception space is adjacent to the Sky View Deck and includes an entry room with a fireplace and a main reception space. There is a bar in the entry room, along with the fireplace, and many couples do table seating arrangements or other welcome decor in the space. In cold or bad weather, this space serves as the main cocktail space, but be aware that it’s pretty small and tight. So it’s not the best option for large guest counts.

The most idea scenario for cocktail hour is to take advantage of the deck and allow guests to mingle with the views.

Once you’re ready for dinner, your crew will head to the main dining room decked out with round dining tables, string lights, and the dance floor.

Pro Tips for Getting Married at the Lodge at Breckenridge

I would highly encourage you to build in time for couples photos up Boreas Pass. Because the Lodge sits on top of a hill, areas for photos on the property are extremely limited.  I recommend at least an hour for portraits off site. The best time to head off site is before the ceremony, so I would recommend doing a first look.

Make time for twilight portraits. While you might get a decent sunset from the deck, or some cool cloud color, the twilight hour is one of my favorite times for night portraits at the Lodge. You can get some truly beautiful skies, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the light and the skies and heading out when we see something pretty!

How much does it cost to get married at the Lodge at Breckenridge?

The lodge offers tiered pricing depending on the day of the week and the time of the year.

Site fees in the winter range from $3000 – $3500, while in the summer they range from $4000 – $5000.

On Wednesdays, the venue waives their site fee altogether, so if you’re flexible on the date, you could consider a mid-week wedding and save a bunch of money!

The rental fee includes chairs, tables, linens, flatware, dishes, glassware and a champagne toast.

In addition to the site fees, they also have a food and beverage minimum for their in house caterer. The minimums for $4500 (winter Wednesday bookings) to $12000 (Saturday summer bookings).

I travel all over the state of Colorado and across the US to capture connected wedding stories for devoted and courageous couples. I’d love to be your Breckenridge Lodge and Spa wedding photographer!
