WEDDINGS at THE RANCH
We are a unique wedding venue offering personalized service in a one-of-a-kind setting
Wedding dates available from June - October
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 amphitheater encircled by pine trees, with built-in benches and stunning views of Longs Peak. From there, 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 and picture windows offering sweeping mountain views in every direction. There's a covered porch where guests can enjoy the fresh mountain air 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."
If you choose our full-service Aspen Package, we will be right there with you to help plan, coordinate, and staff your wedding from ceremony to reception. We'll make sure everything runs smoothly. You'll get to choose your own caterer to deliver food, and Ranch staff will set up your buffet dinner according to your wishes.
If you wish to use your own wedding planner, choose our Blue Spruce Package. With this package, you'll select from our list of Preferred Caterers to handle the food, staffing, and details.
Whichever package you choose, we'll 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.
