The Black Forest by Wedgewood Weddings is a venue nestled in a lush piney forest. As a wedding photographer, I wanted to share my take working at this rustic elegant wedding venue and give you a better idea of what this place has to offer any couple considering this destination.


In terms of location, it’s ideally positioned for any couple that lives near Colorado Springs, Monument, Gleneagle, Palmer Lake, and Larkspur. While at the same time, being a bit on the rural side, it has a quiet charm that you just can’t find in a more urban wedding venue setting. If you’re from the big city and want an escape in mother nature, it’s also the perfect choice if you love dreamy forest weddings.


The venue itself is quite spacious and great for large gatherings. Not only that, but it also features an indoor ceremony area with crystal chandeliers, as well as the option to have the ceremony outdoors. As a Colorado wedding photographer, setups like this are perfect! Couples have the option to pick which ceremony option is best suited for the current weather conditions. The rooms are styled in a clean, yet elegant fashion and the reception area has large windows which allow natural light to flood the facility.


Let’s talk about the views now, shall we? Who doesn’t love a whimsical forest setting? The outdoor ceremony has a lovely pine backdrop, which makes for great photos at any angle! My couples really enjoy having a quiet moment together after the vows in this area where they can escape in a peaceful realm all their own before joining the reception. The secluded feel of this intimate environment is ideal for passionate and intimate wedding photos.
