Larkspur was AMAZING!!!

Larkspur did not disappoint for us on our special day! We were able to stick to our budget and have the wedding of our dreams! The setting was spectacular, the food was a 10, the attention to detail was super and at the end of the night, we felt like royalty. Nathalia and... Read More their crew was tremendous and wend the extra mile for us. As an example, they hired us extra security to help with the crowd control for the 4th of July to make sure our event stayed private. Thanks for making our wedding day a dream come true! Also, thanks for working so well with our wedding planner Aly Camerlo with Knot Just Another Wedding. Chris


The Total Package! THE Vail Wedding Venue

We could not have selected a better ceremony site and reception venue! The food, the service, the setting … we were absolutely blown away by the Larkspur. They are top-notch in everything that they do. The Larkspur embodies the true meaning of great service and hospitality.... Read More Everything from start to finish was better than could have possibly been expected. Brittany made planning the ceremony and reception completely painless, and ensured the day of the wedding was worry-free. The food was absolutely amazing and the wine selection was impressive. We toured virtually every other ceremony and reception site in Vail, and the Larkspur has far more to offer than any of the other venues (and at a more reasonable price). The staff was so polite and attentive; they were a big part of what made the entire event so amazing. We were very lucky to have been able to hold our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing all outside. The weather held out the entire day and it turned out to be a beautiful day/evening. The Larkspur’s expansive patio offers a unique outdoor space with a beautiful mountain backdrop which we took full advantage of. We continue to receive complements on the food, service, and venue from our guests. I cannot thank the Larkspur enough for making my special day absolutely perfect! For anyone considering getting married in Vail, I would HIGHLY recommend the Larkspur for both the ceremony and the reception. You will not be disappointed!


Absolutely INCREDIBLE!

I cannot believe how amazing Larkspur was!! It was way better than I could have asked for or imagined. As a little girl you dream about your wedding and this far outdid any expectations or hopes that I had. Brittany did an incredible job taking care of all the vendors, getting... Read More everyone where they needed to be, when they needed to be; organizing the bridal party for the ceremony; setting up last minute things; etc. She helped ease my mind and made it a stress-free day for me!! She communicated with me during the entire planning period, helping me stay organized and getting everything done on time. She was kind, pleasant, and wonderful to work with the whole time! The wine and food were out of this world, as well as the wait staff. Everything was done professionally, all the staff had great personalities, it really was better than I could have asked for or imagined! We will definitely be visiting Larkspur every time we're in Vail and plan on spending our one year anniversary there. I cannot say enough great things about this venue, if they have availability for your wedding then don't even think twice about booking it!!!!

We held our wedding reception on Labor Day Weekend at the Larkspur. The staff was so organized and so responsive to all our questions and requests over our entire planning process. The set up was absolutely perfect. We were so pleasantly surprised when all of our décor had... Read More been perfectly handled by the Larkspur staff - when our helper arrived to help with set up, she learned she had virtually nothing to do. The food was absolutely spectacular. From the gorgeous presentation and taste of the table pickles to the amazingly delicious entrees (lamb and the Petaluma chicken) to the gorgeous chocolate wedding cake, we could not have been happier. The food was inventive, beautiful and expertly prepared. Everyone complemented the amazing views from our dinner on the lawn. It was truly an unforgettable location and experience for us and for our guests. When the sun went down, the donuts and coffee in the bar area were a highlight for everyone (especially our kids!!) and the cozy atmosphere you created in the bar area to wind things down was awesome. Every person we spoke to on your staff from our initial conversations and visit to the end of the night was friendly and attentive. You truly have an awesome team in place. Everything was absolutely impeccable and we are truly appreciative and thankful for everything you did to make our day perfect. You exceeded expectations in every way. We spend a lot of time in Vail and we considered just about every venue between Vail, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek and Keystone. I am confident that we absolutely made the right choice. Thank you for so perfectly executing our vision of a casually elegant, but very special dinner with our closest family and friends. We will never forget our amazing day, and we thank you for making it so special. We look forward to visiting you again during the winter season!

The Larkspur is truly an amazing wedding experience, they offer the entire package. Not only did our wedding turn out perfect from the decor to the food but we had best in class service and accommodations from Isabel Piaggi. Our wedding was June 18th, 2016 at the Larkspur. We... Read More had our ceremony outside on the Larkspur lawn. The mountains in the backdrop speak for themselves. Once the ceremony was over the waiters were holding wine and water lining the path back to the Larkspur bar for the cocktail reception. We ended up renting a tent for our reception on the Larkspur lawn. What an amazing view to have the clear tent at the bottom of the mountains. We ended up choosing the buffet and what an amazing choice. Not only did our guest get to experience different food as opposed to choosing only 1 meal, but the layout of the food in a tapas style was beautiful. Throughout the night I had people approach me and say it was the best food they had every had at a wedding. As well, days after people are still talking about the food and how truly amazing the day was. Larkspur is a great venue for a wedding space in Vail. They have unmatched service and are willing to work with any special needs you may have. If you want a truly Vail wedding experience with unmatched mountain views and a space to call your own on your special day, the Larkspur is the place! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We got married at The Larkspur in September, and were truly blown away by the setting, staff and service. They put together a perfect day, and everything from the ceremony to the reception was impeccable and beautiful. We’ve received nothing but rave reviews from our guests.... Read More Every time we looked up, we saw smiles all around. From the service to the absolutely incredible food, Isabel, Cole and the rest of their staff made sure that our day was as perfect as we had imagined. The setting at the base of the mountain is truly magical. We'll forever be thankful for their service and can't wait to eat there again when we visit Vail to go skiing!

Best Wedding Venue ever!

We had our wedding reception at the Larkspur in Vail this past September and it was truly the best venue we could have ever imagined. The only regret I have is that we didn't have our ceremony on their beautiful lawn. The staff was incredible and the restaurant looked beautiful.... Read More The view from the patio was breath taking and was the perfect backdrop for all of our friends and family during the cocktail hour. But the food was truly the star of the night. Every one of our guests commented on how amazing the food was. We could not have asked for a better wedding reception and I am positive that it would not have been the same at any other venue. We would recommend the Larkspur to anyone looking to get married in Vail!

Friday the 13th Rehearsal Dinner

Reviewed on 7/15/2014

My husband and I recently hosted a Rehearsal Dinner for our son and (now) new daughter-in-law at Larkspur. As a very "particular" interior designer and admitted "foodie," this experience was a joy from start to finish. We met with Nathalia Sousa-Chin once in March, and she... Read More immediately understood our vision for the evening. Because this was a destination wedding, the Rehearsal Dinner was more like an additional wedding reception, with all guests included. Nathalia assisted us with finding excellent musicians and photographers for the evening. The service was superb and the dinner was outstanding. We have nothing but RAVES for the chef, management and staff of Larkspur. Thank you from your new "fan club" in Kentucky!

I can't say enough about the team at Larkspur!! We had planned our ceremony outside on the lawn, but, unfortunately the weather did not cooperate.

Best reception choice in Vail

Reviewed on 7/02/2013 Lindsay P

Larkspur was impeccable. I was very impressed with the coordinator Brittany. She was on top of everything and executed our plan beautifully. The cocktail reception in the bar and on the patio, dinner service in the dining areas and dancing in the Great Room flowed naturally and... Read More had a wonderful glow to the rooms. The food and cake were absolutely delicious. Everything was so well organized and our guests were well taken care of. I highly recommend any bride to use the vendor. To give an example of how our guests were well taken care of, we had several key people with food allergies (dairy-free and gluten-free). I indicated which guests they were and Larkspur made meals suited to them. They didn't have to double check with the server or chef because Larkspur was way ahead of them. I was so pleased our guests were able to eat delicious meals without question if it would make them sick.
