RockResorts Unveils Green Weddings Initiative

Denver, CO (February 14, 2008) – RockResorts, a luxury hotel company with a long-standing tradition of emphasizing the natural settings of its resort locations, is launching a brand-wide “Green Weddings” initiative beginning this summer. From the majestic mountains of Vail to the authentic adobes of Santa Fe, couples can now say “I Do” at a RockResort without saying “I Don’t” to Mother Nature.

Those exchanging their vows at the nine unique RockResorts properties will do much more than just recycle the cans attached to their “Just Married” signs. Celebrating this special day at a RockResort offers shades of green sure to satisfy and make a difference to the bride and groom, their guests and the planet.  From initial planning until the last guest leaves the reception, some components of RockResorts “Green Weddings” will include:

[The various eco-friendly offerings mentioned above for the RockResorts “Green Weddings” program may tend to vary depending on what resort one chooses.]

Additionally, RockResorts will also offer an “Environmentally Engaged” program for those who are still on their way to tying the green knot. Couples planning their ceremony at any of the properties will be guided by the hotel’s event planning staff and supplied with green wedding planning resources that include various eco-friendly tips, such as information on vendors who supply environmentally-friendly wedding gowns and tuxedos, photographers and entertainment.
