Ouray may be a small town, but we are sure to have almost everything you will need to have the perfect wedding day. One of my biggest suggestions is to hire Krysta as your wedding planner, just do it, you won’t regret it, I PROMISE. Krysta with Elevation Weddings and Events knows ALL of the ins and outs of planning weddings and will make your day run smoothly. I mean no stress about your wedding and actually being able to enjoy it, COME ON!

There is nothing like sharing your wedding vows under an incredible sky in the midst of nature. Find the perfect spot on our public lands. These lands are free to use and a permit is required only if your guest list is over 75 people. There is a free permit available through the Forest Service. Be sure to check with the Forest Service for any restrictions in the area you plan to use for your celebration.

Any time of year is perfect for a wedding in Ouray. The summer climate is pleasant, with low humidity and warm temperatures. Cool crisp air and warm days are typical of the fall season and the winters are spectacular with clear blue skies and glistening powder snow. Ouray offers a change of pace, stunning scenery, fresh air, and the opportunity for amazing wedding photos.

Come to Ouray and enjoy celebrating the beginning of your lifetime adventure in a majestic environment. I hope this little guide was a BIG help to planning your wedding here in Ouray! Feel free to reach out to me at anytime with questions or to book me as your Ouray wedding photographer!
