plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I am a complete sucker for boutique hotels, and I will go extremely out of my way on road trips or while traveling to find one that ‘speaks’ to me and my sense of style. Maybe its the crazy artist lady in me? But, I think that these little (or sometimes big) gems can be a great inspiration for theme ideas for weddings or really fun honeymoon stays. Whether its a reception venue or a place to lay your head while exploring during your honeymoon, these hotels are rich in style and decor. So, let the list below inspire you from theme to decor to getaway goodness!

When I first stepped foot into Colorado almost seven years ago, I knew I had to call it home. See, I grew up in Florida and beaches are nice and all, but seeing snow-topped peaks, and trees that turned amazing hues of red and orange and yellow and other colors I can’t even put words to, won my heart in a millisecond. I was hooked! I think that it is this natural beauty that makes this landlocked region an amazing location for not only weddings, but intimate honeymoon getaways! Doesn’t just sounds so romantic waking up to freshly fallen snow softly blanketing everything outside while sitting by a fire snuggled up to someone special. A really great way to experience that is through some of the Front Range’s amazingly cozy and romantic bed and breakfasts. But these aren’t your typical bed and breakfasts with lace, your grandmother’s antiques and those creepy dolls that seem to stare you at you no matter where you go in the room. These B&Bs offer a timeless, yet modern, feel with all the luxurious amenities, décor and more that you’d get at any other city hotel or resort. We’ve collected a few of our favorites tucked into the corners of the Front Range.
