Venue Spotlight: Cielo at Castle Pines

Cielo at Castle Pines

The Cielo at Castle Pines is a gorgeous Colorado wedding venue just 30 minutes outside of Denver.

The venue is locally owned and operated and aims to treat all their wedding couples like family.

The venue accommodates intimate ceremonies and elaborate large gatherings. Their main dining room offers beautiful sweeping views of lush rolling hills. The Cielo at Castle Pines has a dramatic staircase, large rock fireplace, high white ceilings planked by stunning wood beams, and plenty of natural light. (Hello photographers dream!) Depending on your vision (and the weather) you can choose for an indoor ceremony next to their big open windows or outdoors under their gazebo.

When searching for a Colorado wedding venue, I think some of the main things to look for are:

  1. Accessibility. Will your guests be able to get there with ease? Is it hard to navigate to in the winter? Will your guests feel safe driving there if they’re from out of town?
  2. Is there an indoor ceremony option? In Colorado the weather can change so quickly. Sometimes September is gorgeous and climate, other times it’s snowing. Having an indoor option that you love is super important when choosing a venue.
  3. Are there unique touches that set this venue apart from others? Like thoughtful decor (wooden beams, fireplaces, etc.)

The Cielo checks all three of those boxes! If you’re looking for a Colorado wedding venue near Denver and Colorado Springs, The Cielo at Castle Pines might be the perfect location!
