About The Black Forest Wedding Venue

Details of the Grounds

The Black Forest is a gorgeous, secluded retreat that showcases the beauty of the surrounding forests and Colorado wildlife. 

Their outdoor ceremony site is the perfect balance of rustic elegance with views of the towering pines of the Colorado Springs Forest. A wooden arbor overlooking treetops and an open blue sky create a ceremony that feels as intimate as it does stately. There is also a beautiful, quaint indoor chapel for ceremonies should the weather not participate. Or for couples looking for a more religious-inspired vow exchange.

Their main reception hall features tall vaulted ceilings, warm wooden floors, and ornate crystal chandeliers. The space’s neutral décor allows it to transform into any aesthetic imaginable for your unique wedding, regardless of color palette or style. 

Accordion glass doors open up to a patio area (and the ceremony site). It allows guests to take advantage of the magnificent views and fresh mountain air. It’s also an ideal blend of indoor and outdoor for a wedding that takes advantage of modern amenities without losing the charm and character of the Colorado wilderness. 

Photography Opportunities

The Black Forest provides couples plenty of opportunities for gorgeous photos, particularly those featuring the rugged forests surrounding the venue. Tall groves of trees, open green meadows, and breathtaking mountain views all serve as classic Colorado backdrops (seasonally dependent, of course.) 

During Golden Hour, the property comes alive with a romantic glow, perfect for unforgettable portraits of you and your partner. It’s an excellent venue for photos with stunning forest vibes!
