Ryan and I met in Vail, were engaged in Vail, and decided it would only be perfectly fitting to get married in Vail! As we started to talk about choosing a venue, we decided that the context of our wedding weekend needed to be “inclusive.” We were looking for a partner who... Read More could make our 100 guests feel like they were gathering for a special family dinner, while also elevating the “party mode” experience. Moreover, since I would be planning everything on my own, I was looking for a thoughtful, helpful, and organized team. From our first meeting, we knew we would be in the best of hands with Larkspur! Isabel and the Larkspur family made the planning process easy and fun. At our tasting, we were able to sit down with Chef Bill to share our ideas for a custom designed cake to match our invitations, and our wish was his command (and it turned out picture perfect)! And the food…oh my gosh THE FOOD! We chose the Creekstone Farms Strip Loin and the Ahi Persillade for our seated dinner entrees, and absolutely loved every bite! Our friends and family are still raving (over a month later) about our wedding being “one of the best meals they’ve ever had!” Perhaps the best part about Larkspur is the way the evening flowed together. From the beautiful ceremony lawn with sweeping views of the Gore Range, to the cocktail bar and patio, and finishing the evening in the versatile and open great room with the dance floor, it was as if we had four events in one. All in all, our wedding day was perfect, and it could not have been possible without the love and hospitality provided by our friends at Larkspur!!

We could not be happier with our wedding at Larkspur this last October. From the gorgeous ceremony site to the intimate dinner setting and incredible dance party - everything was perfect. We had guests from all over the world and every single one of them was not only impressed... Read More with the professionalism and care of the staff, but also extremely pleased with the food. I am still receiving compliments about how amazing the dinner was and not to mention the late night snack (we picked the beef tacos and they were to die for). The bar was another highlight - Chris was super accommodating and took great care of our guests. The desserts were well prepared and mouthwatering. The peanut butter crunch bar was a favorite. Working with Rafal and the Larkspur team was easy and effortless and they really made planning easy. I have been in the events business for almost 10 years and was impressed with their execution. I definitely recommend Larkspur for a wedding in Vail, especially if you love well prepared, incredible food.

Our wedding at the Larkspur was beyond phenomenal. Having 115 people travel for your destination wedding and wanting to plan everything with thoughtful details to everything can bring out some bride's stress -especially if you're a perfectionist. I planned the entire wedding... Read More weekend from a distance with a 12 hr trip to only taste apps and cake! The venue is absolutely stunning. Inside and outside! A cold front came in for the wedding day and we needed to have a game time decision - do we have the ceremony indoors? The staff is not only accommodating and flexible but genuinely want your day to be as perfect as it can be. I trusted in the Larkspur and they delivered. I needed their call in the last hour. It was the right call because it was frigid outside by the time we took photos. My guests enjoyed themselves with their hearts and stomachs. That is what made this bride so happy!! Scott and I wanted a loving and a personal ceremony unique to our relationship. We wanted great food and an unbelievable party. We got all of those! Incredible food and cake. Thanks chef Bill! Best Colorado lamb chops I've ever had - all the guests who chose them raved about the dish and the preparation of the tasty potato that accompanied it! I heard the salmon was delicious -I can attest it looked beautiful. They had a great selection of wines but let us order in one of our favorite champagnes. Yum to the speciality cocktails and excellent tasting wedding cakes! You made mom and father in law very happy! They like cake... a lot. Thank you Isabel, Chris, Tony, Meridith and Tom ....and all the staff I didn't personally talk to as you hustled around with excellent service. Gordon Ramsey would be proud of the execution! Thank you all for all your hard work. Being the last wedding of a long season :Larkspur, you made this couple, their friends and families so happy. Vail memories for life! Thank you with all my heart. Xoxo❤️

We hired Larkspur for a next day brunch for our September wedding. I was so burnt out from planning the rest of the wedding, that I didn't want to make any further decisions.

We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding -- we did our ceremony on the lawn and our reception inside. Larkspur is elegant, classy, and intimate, but had plenty of room for our 250 guests. Working with Isabel Piaggi, the events director, was an absolute dream. She... Read More was so on top of everything, so communicative and prompt in responding to our every annoying question, and so NICE. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Isabel and her team, and could not have been more pleased with how the entire night went. The food was exceptional, the staff was attentive, the bartender was amazing, and the whole event went off without a hitch. We HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in the Vail Valley. You will not be disappointed!

GORGEOUS VENUE, AMAZING FOOD, PERFECT WEDDING! We spent tons of time researching wedding venues in Vail Valley before we chose the Larkspur, and it was the right decision.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Larkspur and it was the perfect venue for us! Outdoor wedding ceremony and inside dance party! (The great room was perfect for that.) The restaurant for dinner was absolutely beautiful, modern, classy, and best of all the chef's... Read More pride themselves on their food. We had specific dietary requests for our wedding (vegan & gluten free) and they were so excited to create a menu that was delicious that accommodated our request. Everyone LOVED the food, and set us a part from other weddings they attended! From start to finish we had the best time planning our wedding with the Larkspur team. And they truly delivered on our vision. Did I mention we had a "fried bar" for our late night snacks?! Two types of french fires, fried pickles, onion rings and an assortment of v/gf dipping sauces!! :) Our wedding was a dream come true thanks to Larkspur. Highly recommend!

Absolutely incredible. Our wedding at Larkspur was better than we could have ever imagined. As soon as we walked the venue over one year ago, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. Food & Drink was a priority for us at our wedding, and they nailed it! Isabel and... Read More her team were incredibly accommodating, responsive to emails, and absolutely a joy to work with. They made our day so special. This is also the perfect venue as the indoor "back-up" plan is an equally perfect venue if you are dreaming to have an outdoor wedding. I would do it all over again, if I could!

Our wedding at Larkspur was truly a dream. We were married in the technical "offseason" (first weekend in May) but it was sunny and 70 degrees and a beautiful weekend for us. Every single staff member at Larkspur went above and beyond for our special day. Isabel was also so... Read More wonderful to work with. She did not overlook any details and brought everything together so seamlessly. Our friends and family are still raving about the amazing food, drinks, desserts, and killer background view during our ceremony on the West Lawn. Our wedding in Vail was a destination wedding, and Larkspur was the best choice for that hands down. They handled food, beverages, ceremony chairs, and several other details. It was very "all-inclusive" so to say, which made destination planning such a breeze (and fun!). Highly highly recommend hosting your wedding (or any event really) here! Could not be happier with how things turned out.

Larkspur was an unbelievably magical venue for our wedding day! Every moment was magical and well thought out by their staff. Isabel did not forget one detail, she was very organized and accommodated last minute requests and questions. I am so happy we took a leap of faith to... Read More transform the "lodge" for the dancing. It was truly the perfect reception. Our wedding was December 3rd, near 215 guests, 23 person bridal party, and a 14 person band (all which fit comfortably). They were honest about budgeting and worked with us the night of the event to ensure that we were comfortable with the bar spending limits. The only issue we ran into was the ski shop would not close early so rentals / band could set up. We added an additional cocktail party at Frost to give them a little time, and it worked out perfectly! I only wish we could relive this night one thousand times again!

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!
