Summer 2020 Special Elopement Package - $2,000

Your big day can still happen! Don’t let the complications of the pandemic stop you from tying the knot with your sweetheart! Our Mountain Elopement package is a simple and  joyful solution for those planning to get married this summer. You’ll be able to celebrate your union in a special place while still following social distancing guidelines. 

 

Choose any day of the week this summer available to hold a ceremony at our outdoor amphitheater overlooking Longs Peak. After the ceremony, you may have a champagne toast on the scenic wrap-around porch. Short and sweet never felt so good. 

 

Want to have guests in person when you get married? No problem! Follow guidelines that allow for small gatherings in an open-air setting. Don’t give up on your wedding plans for this year! Hold a small ceremony now and a big party later. 
 

THE DETAILS

 

TIMING
Choose from a morning, midday or evening wedding!  Options are 9am-12pm, 2-5pm or 6-9pm, and are available 7 days per week.
 

VENUE & FACILITIES

The Ranch mountain property can serve as a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos with stunning vistas, wildflower meadows, aspen forests and even rustic buildings.
 

The setting for your ceremony at the outdoor amphitheater features views of Longs Peak framed by a gorgeous pine-forest, sandstone aisle, a podium and tiered bench seating.
 

You may hold an optional post-ceremony mini reception on our Lodge’s covered wraparound porch. The porch will serve as an alternate venue in case of rain.
 

You and your guests will have access to the Ranch’s private outdoor bathrooms, which include sinks and flushing toilets. No indoor facilities are available for guests or wedding party members.

FOOD & BEVERAGES
For health and safety reasons, there can be no access to kitchen facilities or full meals served. You are welcome to BYO self-serve coolers with champagne, beer or wine along with individually wrapped snacks. 

GUESTS

Unlike other elopement venues, you may invite guests to attend your special day at the Colorado Mountain Ranch. Note that the maximum number of allowed guests is subject to change as stated by the State of Colorado’s guidelines for safe outdoor gatherings. We cannot host more than 50 guests at any time during the 2020 season. 
 

You and your guests will be responsible for providing your own transportation. Onsite parking is included in the package.

PHOTO & VIDEO

There are a lot of great places to take beautiful photos on the Ranch property. You may wish to use your smartphone or tablet to record the ceremony and send it to those who couldn’t attend.
 

If you have a professional photographer or videographer be sure to include them in your guest count. No drones, please.

WEDDING OPTIONS for 2021 and BEYOND

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 for up to 150 guests.

 

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 Columbine 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.

What miracles-right-rain-fog-then clear beautiful sunset Most of all I wanted to tell u 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 u are very proud of them as well!
