We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful inn, and the wedding ceremony was perfect. The weather held out, and the lovely scenery made it most enjoyable. Sally and Mike were awesome, and our every need was met.

August '13

Pikes Peak Wedding at Blue Skies Inn is lovely, stress-free place to have a wedding.

We had about 75 guests, and the garden was beautiful, the hors d'oeuvres were delicious, and Sally's photography was great, all on a reasonable budget. Sally went out of her way to personalize, and give my son & daughter-in-law just what they wanted. Sally and her crew were a joy to work with, and the day couldn't have gone any better.

The thunder during the ceremony was an especially dramatic touch! Everyone had a good time and we received lots of compliments from guests, both sides of the aisle. The intimate setting of your gardens contributed to the eotional day, I believe.

Absolutely perfect! Blue Skies is the place for romance - from the room with its cozy sleeping chambers, spacious bathroom and intimate sitting room, to the perfectly prepared and sumptuous breakfast served promptly to the door, everything is gauged to bring the most pleasure possible to the guest.

Wedding preparations were meticulous, and the ceremony and reception went off beautifully.

Again, the hors d'oeuvres were wonderful with guests praising them and asking for recipes.

Thank you, so very much, for a delightful and carefree, memorable weekend!!

We have had the perfect wedding weekend. In fact I would call it my perfect, magical, woodland garden wedding, including Mother deer and twin newborn fawns.

The food was delicious and the setting beautiful. You both were so gracious and generous and our every need was anticipated and supported.

Thank you for everything.

Thank you so much. Our wedding couldn't have been more perfect.

It was amazing that all I had to worry about was looking nice for the wedding. It meant so much that you guys were just as excited as we were for our "Japanese" wedding.

Thank you so much for stressing, so we didn't have to.

Thank you so, so much for our wonderful stay here at the inn. Jesus & I had the time of our lives! :-) Although it rained before our wedding, everything turned out magnificently, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You guys really know how to put on an exquisite show! Could not have asked for, planned for or hoped for a more perfect wedding.

Our room, also, was perfect and adorable, made so by Sally's artistic touch, talent and capabilities.

I can 100% promise that the breakfast muffins and egg dish make for happy, well-fed tummies. It's delicious!!! The quiches are comparable to cheesy, billowy, soft, fluffy clouds sent from the Heavens above! The muffins are to die for!

Thank you again for sharing and helping with this day for us. We truly couldn't be more satisfied with our experience.!

The first time I stood in the garden of Blue Skies Inn, I told my momma that this was the place where I was going to get married. I was twelve years old, and completely enchanted by the beauty that you worked so hard at to build. The delicate flowers along the pathways, and the bubbling waterfalls had me completely transfixed. I built my dream wedding around this place, and when my day came to say my vows I got that dream. There are no words to describe how above and beyond anything I ever imagined can compare to how amazing our special day was.

The bouquet was so elegant and creative, I cried when I saw it, an amazing work of art. Sally you are one of a kind, you worked so hard to give me the wedding of my dreams, and there is no way I can ever thank you enough. Everything flowed together so seamlessly that there was nothing left for us to worry about. The ribbon ceremony was enchanting, such a unique way to say our vows. And the besom was just magnificent, such detail and time went into it that I am able to point out a new unique part of it every day.

Thank you again for all the time and effort you put into our special day, it is one that we will never forget.

Thank you so very much for all of your help on our special day. When Jason and I started planning for a wedding, I knew it would be here! I remember my mother having her wedding here, and how stress-free she was... It was all you!

I wanted to be as stress-free as I could, and you made it possible once again!

The wedding was AMAZING! And so many people commented on your beautiful inn and gardens. Jason and I are truly thankful for
all that you have done. You both are awesome!

There really aren't words to describe the amazing hospitality, kindness and true care we received here before, during and after our wedding ceremony. We both know there isn't any place we would rather have been.

The Starlight suite is absolutely amazing. Breakfast, brought to the room, was amazing. Everyone here was so kind to us and all our family and friends. The entire grounds are absolutely stunning. I really believe we will never be able to thank you enough, and we wish you, your families and friends years more of happy days filled with happy memories.

Know that our love follows you always, along with our prayers. From the deepest of our hearts, we thank you. All the same for our chaplain, Paul. We hope and pray that we will see you again, both in this life and any forms of life that follow. Thank you both so very much. We love you. All our love and prayers.

We will recommend this inn as a place to stay and a place to get married to _everyone_. Thank you for taking all of our ideas and turning them into a beautiful, special day.

Our wedding at Blue Skies was beyond amazing. You went above and beyond expectations to encourage Shawne and I as we rode our bikes from San Francisco all the way to Manitou Springs and then host the most wonderful bicycle- themed wedding.

The attention to detail like the audience ringing bike bells when we kissed was a really neat surprise. We wanted a really relaxed and fun wedding and the beautiful garden setting really was perfect for the event. Thank you so much!

My sister's wedding was the most amazing experience - Janay and Shawne are an exceptional pair. Their sense of adventure and fun was embraced in the wedding planning and every detail met or exceeded my expectations.

Sally, you have a terrific sense of style, and I noticed and appreciated all the extras that made the day really exceptional. I had so much fun as I didn't have to travel then start dealing with details - everything was taken care of!

A true destination wedding location with beauty, fabulous accommodations and wonderful hosts to navigate through such a special day in life! Couldn't have asked for better! Thanks, thanks, thanks!

Thank you so much for such a beautiful and amazing wedding. I felt like a Princess for a Day. After hair and make-up at Manitou Hair Emporium, my transformation was complete. The wedding was so much more than we expected. We appreciate all the time and effort you all put into making our day complete. The ceremony was very touching and Rev. Rost was fabulous. She really made the ceremony memorable. The girls really loved the balloon animals that were made for them. Zach was so wonderful and patient with them - balloon animals are so much fun. Our room was so cozy and breakfast was delicious - such a great way to start the day. Thank you for everything.

Our overall wedding experience at Blue Skies was great, but the best and most unique part of the wedding was the bridal bouquet. It was exactly what we wanted and was amazing. It was so beautiful and made everything come together well. Sally took my ideas and made them into reality - the bouquet was everything I could have hoped for and more.

We want to thank Blue Skies for helping make our wedding day special and something we will remember for the rest of our lives

We were married here on June 7, 2010, and waited far too long to return. We have decided that we need to come back at least once a year to reconnect together without all the distractions and stress of "real life."

The quiet and serenity here is the perfect setting, and making new memories is always needed.

Thanks for providing this perfect slice of happiness and calm amidst a world that seems to be out of control. The Starlight room is awesome, breakfast yummy, and the setting perfect.

Our working schedule is very busy so we could never be able to handle the preparations ourselves! We were especially touched to see the Chinese characters of "blessing" on our cake.

The pictures you've taken are awesome, and we'll display them at our banquet in Hong Kong. The room is amazing and the painting makes it like a piece of artwork! Breakfasts are delicious. It is so comfortable to stay here and we don't want to go home.

Thanks again and we really appreciate your help. Good job, Sally and Mike! We'll definitely revisit Blue Skies next time when we are back in Colorado for research!

And Sally... words cannot describe how much I love you. I couldn’t ask for a better wedding planner. I mean, you found my lost-at-some-anonymous-cleaners dress after I lost all hope of finding it! Then when mascara was spilled on my dress, you had a solution for that too! You are truly an amazing person.

Saying "Thank you," just doesn't seem adequate. Sally, you have truly been blessed with an awesome talent!

Our weekend was more than I could have dreamed of: remarrying my husband and bringing our family back together in this beautiful, peaceful place. You have given all of us some great memories that we will cherish forever.

The whole process was relaxed and stress-free. The morning before our wedding I had three hours to rest, walk through the property and just enjoy the quiet time. Our whole weekend was peaceful and relaxing, an awesome start to the week that will offer up a lot of challenges with the surgery I'm facing. Now I have a quiet peace, having my family complete, and you both made it wonderful

Where do I begin? First, I would like to compliment on your talents. You are good at what you do, and you do so many things. You truly found your purpose and it pleases people and, I'm sure, yourself.

I could write a page each on the garden, the room, the food and the ceremony but I'm sure you already know. You have made our day memorable to not only us but our families.

We wanted something different and appealing and that's exactly what we got. There are no words to describe our stay here at Blue Skies Inn, only to say you have done more for others than you can imagine, and you will be blessed for doing so. Thank you, and we will see you again.

Our wonderful experience at Blue Skies Inn started long before we arrived. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our wedding had to be rescheduled multiple times. You graciously worked with us every step of the way, ensuring our special day went off without a hitch. It's a blessing to find so accommodating to the needs of military members.

The scenery, location and room were amazing. As others have commented, your breakfast is the cherry on top! The blueberry muffins are primo!

Our wedding was stress-free due to your efforts, as we had wished. We were expertly guided through every step so we could actually relax and enjoy the experience. There was no need to worry about a single aspect of the course of events.

Our favorite part of the whole stay was, without a doubt, the super photo session! My husband is not a big picture taker but, once again, due to your efforts to make everything fun, he transformed into a Calvin Klein super model right before my very eyes. We had a blast! And all of the areas to take pictures were absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for everything! We will be coming back to see you.

George & Nicole and family
Dear Sally,

Hi there, I just feel like I have to send the BIGGEST THANK YOU! to you.

I'm George's mom. We live in Ohio. We did not get to be there for our son's and Nykki's wedding, and to say it was heart wrenching is an understatement. I am so very lucky to have such a beautiful son, daughter, and grandchildren.

When I viewed the pictures, I was overwhelmed. Even not being there, you were able to capture all the love, respect and the beautiful family togetherness that was experienced that day. These pictures we will treasure always. What a way to begin their long awaited journey together!

I am five states away and you still made me cry with Happiness! Know you have chosen the right profession.
God Bless You and Yours,

Karen, the Groom's Mother
Ohio

Although the words "Thank You" just don't seem to be enough, thank you for giving us one of the most beautiful memories ever as we start our new life and family.

Words cannot describe the magic we felt. Everything was absolutely wonderful, down to the fine rain that came through that afternoon. How perfect was it that you had told our family that rain is a sign of fertility, then we announced that we are expecting?

Thank you for the beautiful ceremony that also included our son into it. That was a true blessing for us as we start our life as a newly united family. Thank you again with all our hearts.

Sally was great in preparing us for the big day. Any fears we had were laid to rest !! More than anything we wanted a unique and private wedding in a beautiful setting and that is exactly what we got.

All the arrangements were perfect. The cake was to die for. It was wonderful having all the little details planned for us. We simply made our requests and wishes and they were granted just the way we wanted.

Thank you for the extraordinary wedding you orchestrated with all the personal touches you deftly added, including delphinium morphed into blue bonnets. We had a wonderful time and I believe with you at the helm, blue skies will shine on many more memorable weddings. Here lies your future. You have come a long way with your dream... May you continue to prosper and bring joy to your friends. You have my best wishes.

Thanks again for you terrific hospitality. It was above and beyond anything we could've hoped for.

The wedding was fantastic, and we really appreciated all the extra effort you made to accommodate family members who could not be here with us.

We really enjoyed our stay, and if we ever get back this way again, we'll be sure to stay at Blue Skies Inn.

We cannot thank you enough for EVERYTHING! Our wedding was perfect. It was the spiritual, close and romantic ceremony we were wanting. The wandering deer and floating butterflies, we feel were nature's wedding-day gift to us.

The room was very romantic, the breakfasts were delicious, and the hospitality we received is beyond words.

We want to thank you both so much for making our wedding day so special and wonderful . Everything was absolutely PERFECT. I was so happy to see the white arch when I walked up to it, you knew how much I wanted that one. My flowers, the rose petals were incredible. I would recommend Blue Skies Inn to anyone that wants to get married.

Our wedding photos are everything we had hoped for and more. We do not know which photos to have blown up because all of them are amazing! But after viewing what you posted on your website I believe we've decided on the same ones that you did.

Once again thank you so much for everything, we have begun our new life together and have precious memories and photos of our beautiful wedding day. You did an outstanding job on EVERYTHING!

However can we thank you for your true thoughtfulness, graciousness that it's a high art form in itself. Dave and I sat in in the sitting room of the Morning Glory suite our first night, looking out the window and murmuring about how magical it all was...

From the specially chosen words at our wedding service, to the music, to the special symbolic flowers tucked into my bouquet... what can I say but "Wow!" and "Thank you!!!" This wedding absolutely could not have been better ~ and we mean it from the heart.

It brings tears to my eyes as I write, but you will remain in our hearts and thoughts. Thank you for reminding us anew of the pleasures in life... gardens blossoming, chocolate muffins, hugs from friends, sunlight through white curtains... We will be back!!!

Dear Sally & Mike,

Dave and I are still talking about our blissful experience at Blue Skies Inn, and yes, we are wearing out the photo album.

I truly do not know where to begin. I have never visited a B&B, but I am willing to bet none will exceed the warmth & graciousness I received here. As I am writing this tears of joy & thankfulness are forming in my eyes. Sally, not only are you a Jill of All Trades, you are truly a blessing to those you come in contact with. Thank you sooooo much for making my elopement so special.

I want you to know how wonderful the entire wedding experience was at Blue Skies Inn. The care you gave to all details of the weekend for Kyanna and Kelly were unbelievable. I was so impressed with the lovely bridal suite, the gorgeous gardens, the beautifully decorated and delicious heart-shaped cake, and the memorable ceremony performed by Reverend TallTree and his wife. This was a wedding to remember!

Thank you for making this event in the life of my daughter and our family a stress-free, enjoyable and beautiful experience.

Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding! Steve and I wanted to get away somewhere romantic for a private ceremony. We wanted it to be just the two of us, but didn't want to miss out on the cake, flowers, etc.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot than Blue Skies Inn! The room was incredible; the flowers were absolutely gorgeous!

I loved everything about my stress-free wedding, and I have wonderful pictures to remember it by and share with our friends and families!

Thank you again for starting our lives together!

Dear Blue Skies Inn,

I just visited your website and I'm very interested in visiting your wonderful bed and breakfast! My boyfriend and I would like to get married without the stress and expense of a traditional wedding. I loved the idea of driving out west for the honeymoon but then discovered that we could marry there with ease! (We live in Missouri.)

I have visited many B&B websites looking for the ideal place and yours is the one I kept coming back to; especially after reading all the comments from previous guests. It seems so perfect to marry in such a beautiful and unique place with so much to see and do right there.

Shannon M.

Colorado is such a beautiful state, but when we arrived at your B&B, we were surrounded by and even more beautiful environment. Our stay here and our wedding ceremony exceeded my expectations, which were already high! Tony and I felt so comfortable and relaxed. I was a little nervous about the ceremony because I can be quite a clumsy, tongue-tied person. But once we walked into the Secret Garden, I felt nothing but happiness... Truly Perfect! The ceremony was short and sweet - just as it was advertised. The cake was delicious... The pictures you took are fantastic. I can't wait to show everyone!

In just a little bit we must begin our trip back to Missouri. We will take with us the memories of being married in a gorgeous place with several wonderful kind people there with us. Thank you so much! I will definitely miss the breakfasts! Best wishes always,

Shannon & Tony
