The Silverthorne Pavilion is a wedding venue located in a resort community, and caters to destination weddings. Often with destination weddings, guests come for the wedding but are also here to experience the mountains and to discover why the mountains are so important and meaningful to you. A great activity for guests is a rafting or fishing trip down the Upper or Lower Blue River.
When you first put in on the Upper Blue River, you float under bridges, around bends and past open farm lands. It is a great time to relax, maybe throw a fishing line in the water and take in the mountain views of the Gore Range over to your left. You pass a campground on your left where you can see the effect of the mountain pine beetle on our eco-system; there are campers lining the shore for the tree removal workers. A couple more bends and you find yourself floating into the canyon, where you can see the whitewater ahead of you. Your heart starts to beat a little faster and as you drop into the first wave train you can feel the perma-grin take hold of your facial muscles. As wave after wave explodes in your face and over your body you can feel the adrenaline rushing through your body. After about twenty minutes, which feels like five minutes, you are at the take out, soaking wet, and wanting more!
A good time is sure to be had by all! So check out some of the local outfits here in the county; there are a ton of great ones, and get your guests outside enjoying the area that you chose to host your wedding! With gold medal fishing waters and Class 3 rapids, there is something for everyone.
