Rev. Calvin’s Favorite Wedding Venues

Here are my favorite wedding ceremony and reception venues in Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. I not only like the places, but I also like the people who make them special. For more than ten years, I have served couples as their wedding officiant at some of the most spectacular locations in this part of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

These are my absolute favorites and I have enjoyed officiating many weddings at all of them. Click the photos to visit their webpages. Better still, make an appointment and see for yourself!
