  • The Foothills Art Center was a great venue for our smaller wedding. Maura was super responsive and accommodating to my 1 million questions, and really helped make our day amazing! Definitely a unique venue if you are looking for something DIY, with a artsy, mountain feel, but still waking distance from great hotels for your guests. It was perfect for us since art is a big part of both of our families, and we were looking for something more casual and personal for our big day. Great for smaller weddings and for couples who don't want to have to buy in to a rigid event package.
