This time of year is always buzzing with "I Do's", white dresses, and celebrations and well wishes. However, there are another group of people, running around town like chickens with their heads cut off, the people planning a wedding that hasn't happened yet. Here are some of the best wedding venues in Grand Junction.

The Doubletree Hotel

The Doubletree Hotel is one of the most popular wedding venues in Grand Junction. They have several beautiful locations for the wedding ceremony and more than enough room for your reception right there at the hotel. The best part about the hotel is that your guests don't have to drive anywhere between your ceremony and reception, and they can drink at the reception because no one has to drive!

Gateway Canyons Resort

Gateway Resort is one of the most beautiful, and most desired destinations in Colorado. Gateway Resort has several, beautiful locations for you to have both your ceremony and your reception. The World-renowned chefs, and some of the most beautiful views in all of Colorado, Gateway is definitely the prime Colorado Destination Wedding location.

Two Rivers Winery and Chateau

Two Rivers Winery is literally my backyard, I've grown up in this area and I can tell you it's absolutely beautiful. The winery itself is a pretty impressive venue, surrounded by a Redlands Vineyard. The location is still pretty close to town, so your guests won't have to drive too far. I've been to quite a few weddings at the Two Rivers Winery, and they were all pretty awesome.

Redlands Mesa Golf Course

Redlands Mesa Golf Course is the high dollar golf course in Grand Junction. Surrounded by multimillion dollar homes, and an elegant golf course cut right into the Colorado Desert. I've also been to quite a few weddings at Redlands Mesa Golf Course, and they were all beautiful, and enjoyable.

Amy's Courtyard

Amy's Courtyard is tucked away in the outskirts of Palisade. Surrounded by a vineyard, it's a great venue for smaller weddings (by smaller I mean less than 200 people). The reason I say that is that sometimes if you rent a larger venue, when you have fewer people, it makes your wedding look small. This venue is really nice for groups around that size, and it really is a very beautiful venue.

No matter which venue you choose, congratulations on your engagement and we hope your wedding is everything you hope for!
