Planning to pop the question in southwest Colorado? Make your life-changing moment magical with these wedding proposal ideas. Don’t forget to ask a friend or hire a photographer to capture this once in a lifetime experience!


Wedding Proposal Ideas and Locations

1. Patrick’s Point in Hawkins Preserve, Cortez, Colorado…at sunrise

2. The Bridge at Geyser Spring Trail, Dolores, Colorado

This is the perfect proposal spot to surprise the avid hiker. Tell your sweetheart you are going to take them to the only natural geyser in Colorado, and pop the question at the beginning (or the end) of the hike!


Bonus: Arrange to have a photographer hideout on the trail to capture the moment of surprise! (I recommend Cracked Compass, Kara Cavala, Sue Shutterbug, or Kristen Dellinger Photography)


3. Overlooking Carpenter/Geer Natural Area, Cortez, Colorado…at sunset

Looking for a beautiful spot close to downtown Cortez to get engaged? The hills around Carpenter Natural Area are easy to get to and absolutely breathtaking at sunset. Make sure to scope out the perfect spot ahead of time, but if you need help contact Cortez Tours (corteztours@gmail.com)!


4. Any one of the Beautiful Lavender Fields

Montezuma County is becoming quite the destination for lavender fields. If you want a proposal filled with sweet smelling purple blooms, make sure to plan accordingly: lavender blooms in southwest Colorado in June & July.
