3. European Chateaux with Western Rustic Details
Western details and rustic vibes are a given in Colorado with so many of our incredible venues and event spaces. Yet I love the European Chateaux decor and aesthetic you will find in the main house. With a guest count allowance of up to 200 people, this gorgeous venue is elegant and chic. The Ranch House has multiple ceremony sites, a gorgeous bridal suite, roomy groom’s quarters, and a full kitchen on-site to assist in your beautiful day.
The interior design of the Ranch house is perfect for classic and elegant wedding portraits. We love the main room for an indoor wedding or a seated reception. The ease of movement through the entire venue is one of our favorite aspects. The house is large, airy, and spacious yet cozy and inviting.
4. Large On-Site Reception
Steps away from the Ranch house is the Reception barn with a gorgeous vaulted ceiling, warm wooden details, chandeliers, expansive doors to take in the view, and a massive outdoor patio space with a stone fireplace to bring the celebrations under the stars. The views from the barn are just gorgeous, and the space is large and inviting for a large guest count. The extended outdoor space and easy access from the main house is perfect for summer and fall outdoor weddings. We love that your guests can easily mingle during cocktail hour in between your ceremony and reception. The barn and main house are also perfect for winter and spring weddings when the option for an outdoor wedding might prove to be inhibited by the Colorado weather.
