WEDDINGS AT THE RANCH
We are a unique wedding venue in a one-of-a-kind historic mountain setting above Boulder.
Saturday wedding dates available from June - September!
Located just 10 miles from Boulder and a lifestyle away, the Ranch is surrounded by the incredible beauty of the Colorado Rockies. In this relaxed environment, you can create the day of your dreams.
Our ceremony site is an outdoor amphitheatre - encircled by pine, spruce, and fir - with terraced benches and stunning views of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. After your vows, you and your guests will move to our lovely Ponderosa Lodge for your reception. The Lodge is beautifully rustic, with hand-hewn logs, two fireplaces, hardwood floors, windows and opening doors offering sweeping mountain views in every direction. There's a covered wrap-around deck where guests can enjoy the fresh mountain air for appetizers & cocktails and plenty of room for dancing inside.
"The setting was spectacular and the staff was incredible. They went above and beyond to make my wedding one of the most memorable experiences and I'm forever grateful."
Our Blue Spruce Package offers the venue for you to plan and personalize your Special Day. You'll select from our list of Preferred Caterers to handle the food, staffing, and details. We’ll help ensure that everything runs smoothly so your big day exceeds all your dreams and expectations.

Gail and Lynn Want to take this opportunity to let you know how wonderful everything was! The set-up was perfect -exactly what she wanted! What miracles-right-rain-fog-then clear beautiful sunset. Most of all I wanted to tell you what a wonderful staff you have - I have worked most of my adult life in the restaurant and catering business as a server or manager - I have NEVER worked with a group of people with such positive attitudes and such efficiency and believe me I don't want to try and remember how many wedding receptions I have been a part of - I tried to thank them all on Saturday night but am thinking I missed some - please tell them how thankful we are to them and how blessed and impressed we were by all of them - I am sure you are very proud of them as well! It was an honor to have worked with all of you! Again thank you so much God bless.
