There are many different Colorado Ranch Wedding Venues to choose from, each offering important variations in mood or atmosphere or focus. And in this blog post we would like to spotlight what we consider to be the top three of those venues.
The first venue you will want to consider is Lower Lake Ranch, which is Colorado’s oldest guest ranch, and is nationally recognized as the best mountain photography range in the U.S. Lower Lake Ranch provides an extremely wide range of activities, special events and services, and offers a number of breathtaking mountain venues for weddings, as for example the Willows Pavilion, and the Creekside, and the famous Rock Crop (a very dramatic rock formation which is cantilevered out over the creek). In addition, the ranch offers horseback riding, fly fishing in pristine mountain streams, and several different kinds of lodgings, including bed & breakfast style accommodations.
The next venue you will want to know about is Colorado Mountain Ranch, which is where the original Boulder summer day camp for teenagers and children was held. The Colorado Mountain Ranch, which is just ten miles from Boulder, but feels like somewhere far away and long ago, is a highly attractive place for horseback riding, company meetings, company picnics, mountain boarding, any kind of party, and of course weddings. There’s an outdoor amphitheater on the property, which nestles into the trees high on a hill from which you can see Long’s Peak. And there is a charming, rustic Ponderosa log lodge which is perfect for your wedding reception; the lodge will hold 150 people.
Then there’s the C Lazy U Guest Ranch, which is one of the leading resorts in the entire world (on a recent Condé-Nast Reader’s Choice survey, the C Lazy U was ranked the #1 resort in Colorado, #4 resort in the U.S., and the 13th resort overall in the world). The C Lazy U, which is situated on 8,500 beautiful, serene acres, offers wedding plans for any season of the year (although be advised that weekend weddings in the highly desired months of June and August are usually booked out one or even two years in advance). It also offers a large converted barn for wedding receptions (an attraction you will find nowhere else), and a charming and secluded honeymoon cabin.
