When we asked for donuts for our guests before the ceremony and a custom cinnamon bun flavored wedding cake, she didn't even bat an eye before saying they could do that. I would get married every weekend at The Greenbriar Inn if I could and we will certainly be return guests for many a brunch to come. If you are considering The Greenbriar Inn for your wedding, my best advice would be to book it now!

This is a magical place to have a winter wedding! The Greenbriar is known across the city for it's incredible food, fresh menu, and tasty drinks!

Read More rented space and at the bar on the other side of the restaurant to order drinks as a result so our first dance and most of the reception was pretty thin. My amazing bridesmaids made several trips to the bar to bring us drinks. I had to personally flag down servers from other parts of the restaurant. The contract is arbitrary since they are able to change prices at any given time including 6 days before our event after what I thought was the final contract. Yes, they stipulate that they can change prices at any time in the contract but would have rather seen the higher prices from the beginning then have it adjusted down rather than the other way around. We complained to the owner and we were offered a gift certificate for 4 which we accepted. It's obvious they take pride in their business and have reached out to me again following my feedback which I appreciate. Of course it was still one of the best days of my life but the service issues were unfortunate since it did affect us and our guests from really being able to enjoy the reception.

When we first got engaged my Fiancé and I noticed that there are many wedding venues that are very nice but that feel like 'wedding factories'. Pretty places but nothing special. The Greenbriar Inn is perfect! We got so many compliments on the location and the food, as well... Read More as the staff. We had our ceremony on the Cabin Lawn, followed by Cocktails on the South Lawn, dinner in the Large Dining Room, and dancing and photo booth in the Sun Room. Our wedding had 100 guests which was a perfect fit, although they can accommodate more. I love the wood in the dining room, the beautiful trees all over the property, and the very intimate feel of the place. Kathi Jo is the onsite event coordinator and she did a fantastic job of helping us plan our wedding and answered our many emails about details large and small. The night of our wedding Kathi Jo was on hand to make sure the vendors knew where to set up, and kept everything rolling. Assisting her was Valerie. Valerie is delightful!!! So nice and handled everything with a smile. She regularly checked in with us to make sure everything was as we wanted it. At one point during dinner my sister had to step outside to handle an important phone call and one of the waiters noticed she was outside. He went out to check on her and brought her more champagne until she was able to rejoin the rest of us inside. So classy. I wanted a grooms cake for my husband and hired an outside baker to make it (a huge deer head cake, check out A Slice of Creation in Broomfield). Immediately following dinner the wait staff brought it out and it was like a little parade. Everyone made it so much fun - Amazing staff! I wasn't sure how they would feel serving a grooms cake that was made by an outside baker but they were wonderful. The wedding cake was made by their onsite baker and was delicious (Almond Jaconde with wild berries). They have their own garden so the salads, spices, and vegetables are fresh and constantly harvested. We met the owner, Phil, and he also checked in with us to make sure we were happy - we were!! I could go on and on.. if you are looking for a huge venue that is pretty but with no stand out details, they are everywhere. If you want a beautiful property, amazing food, and a memorable night for your guests you've found it at The Greenbriar Inn. Congratulations all you newly engaged couples!
