The fiancé and I just returned from a gorgeous weekend in Colorado looking at wedding venues!

Yep, we're planning a destination wedding in the mountains. This was our first big wedding planning trip to Colorado, and it was so much fun. 

We stayed in Longmont because we planned a couple of venue tours in Lyons, which is nearby and doesn't have many hotel options. At the last minute, I booked a tour at a venue in Estes Park, so we also took a trip there. 

I'm not going to share details about the venues we toured right now. Maybe in the future, after we choose a venue, I'll write a post about all the venues we've looked at. But I want the fiancé and I to make a decision without a lot of outside influence. 

That said, if you have any great wedding venue suggestions in Colorado, please share! We're looking for a venue that isn't too high up in the mountains (since most of our guests will be coming from flat lands), has options for an outdoor ceremony and/or reception with gorgeous views, has on site or nearby lodging, has that rustic Colorado charm (but isn't cowboy), and is affordable. 

In addition to venue tours, we ate delicious food and sampled lots of craft beer during our trip. So read on to find out what we ate and other adventures we had during our trip!
