The Barn at Sunset Ranch | Buena Vista, Colorado
The Barn at Sunset Ranch is located in the quaint, picturesque mountain town of Buena Vista, Colorado. Their 5,000sqft rustic-meets-country-chic barn boasts some of the most epic mountain views of the Collegiate Peaks. Settled right at the base of the iconic Mount Princeton, your guests will spend as much time as possible relaxing outside beneath the mountains, playing yard games, and getting their drinks from the onsite Pour Trailer. This family owned venue had been a dream for Jim and Jayme Greenfield for decades and finally came to fruition in 2016 when they hosted their first wedding.
The Barn at Howard Creek Farm | Howard, Colorado
Are you looking for a venue with lots of history with modern touches? You may have found your perfect venue here at Howard Creek Farm! Owners Aly and Orlin had a vision for their 11 acre ranch nestled amongst the Arkansas river and at the floor of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Their vision included a very special barn that would travel all the way from Indiana to live in Colorado and house some of the most beautiful weddings in Colorado! This 4,000sqft barn can host up to 200 of your closest friends and family members. Complete with a unique grooms grain silo suite, a newly built beautiful bridal suite, and a hay field for your ceremony, you won’t have to leave the property from start to finish!
Hutchinson Ranch | Salida, Colorado
Is a “working ranch” on your list of must-haves for your wedding venue? Or maybe you didn’t realize how important it was to you until you saw an adorable photo of cattle visiting your wedding ceremony? Whatever the case, Hutchinson Ranch, a family owned and working ranch since the 1800’s located in the historic town of Salida, Colorado, has created a beautiful and memorable wedding venue in our part of the state! Complete with an outdoor meadow ceremony and a 36’x60’ event barn, electric, restrooms, and an outdoor rustic event space, your guests will feel right at home in their cowboy boots at this wonderful and welcoming venue!
Guyton Ranch | Jefferson, Colorado
If you’ve ever visited the infamous Kenosha Pass in the fall in Colorado, then you were merely a stones throw away from the magical Guyton Ranch in Jefferson, Colorado. This 330 acre ranch has it all––seriously! From shuttle service for you from Denver International Airport, to morning yoga, lodging for up to 16 of your family and friends, your own ranch hand, a kickball field, a basketball court, endless mountain views, a saloon, and indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception sites, you literally never have to leave the ranch once you arrive! Family owned by the Guyton’s, no detail was left untouched with love and sincere consideration for the couples who would be saying, “We do!” at this magical place.
Willow Vale Events | Hillside, Colorado
Now, don’t let the name fool you––just because the word “ranch” isn’t in Willow Vale’s name, doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer all the charm, epic views, and history you’re likely searching for as your iconic Colorado wedding venue! Nestled in the historical township of Hillside, Colorado, just outside of the mountain town of Westcliffe, this beautiful hidden gem of a venue boasts views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, four adorable cottages, a historical post office, and some of the most lush willow trees this side of the Rocky Mountains. Owner Lori Short, and her family, offer the most attentive, caring, and sincere service you can expect at such a charming venue!
