Spruce Mountain Ranch was an amazing place for our wedding. The peaceful setting was the perfect location to escape the busy hustle and bustle of Denver, but allow us to have nearby accommodations. We blocked hotel rooms near Park Meadows and hired a charter bus. We utilized the... Read More gorgeous bridal cottage and cigar bar before our wedding. We had our ceremony up on the mountain side and SMR provided transportation for our guests from the parking lot. The Colorado Room was the perfect indoor/outdoor space for our cocktail hour. It is breath taking. This also made for an easy transition to the outdoor patio outside of Albert's Lodge where we did bridal party introduction and our first dance. The roll up doors into Albert's Lodge made for a perfect indoor/outdoor space during our reception. We had our dinner in Albert's Lodge and danced the night away on the outdoor patio. The staff made were very helpful the day before the wedding with the rehearsal, and made the day flow smoothly with great setup and help recommending and coordinating all the outside vendors. Tara was responsive and personable. When you visit Spruce Mountain Ranch, you simply do not want to leave. I'd highly recommend this venue to anyone. Book early as they will fill up for Summer weddings!

Just WOW. I knew my wedding day could be lovely, but I just never dreamed it could be as lovely as it turned out to be. This was in no small part due to the backdrop of Spruce Mountain Ranch (SMR) and the kindness, support, and professionalism of Tara Ames, Erin Mondragon, and... Read More Skyeler Sheveland - my SMR girls!! Once arriving at the ranch, it's clear that the scenery and setting is beyond breathtaking. However, it is the PEOPLE that make the ranch what it is. Tara gave me vendor recommendations and always answered my questions kindly and quickly, even when she was out of the country. Erin helped identify a solution to a vendor problem, having only ever met me once and giving me the most needed hug when the problem seemed unmanageable. Skyeler helped put all the details in order and kept everything running smoothly - she even told me to stop cleaning up at the reception and get out of my dress and dancing shoes. I have never felt more loved or supported!. The SMR girls feel like family to me, and I knew how much they wanted my day to go off without a hitch. I cannot thank them enough for the memories of a lifetime. Beyond that, the value you get at SMR is beyond compare. From a cost perspective, you get one of the cheaper site fees in the Denver metro area and you get more than your money's worth for that: an adorable cottage to get ready in; a built-in backup location for rain; the ranch all to yourself; chairs and tables; and an on-site contact to help keep everyone and everything in order. The Ranch even has a hotel and transportation deal with the Inverness Hotel and the Marriott Park Meadows, so everything is taken care of in and in one place! We also rented out Ruby's Cottage for an extra two hours so that we had time to relax and get our makeup done. The SMR girls are so accommodating, so loving, and so helpful. Truly, there is no other choice for a wedding venue if you want a memorable day filled with beauty, laughter, and love!

Spruce Mountain Ranch is an optical illusion. We looked at several wedding venues and selected Spruce Mountain as the place to create our family memories. Now that the event is over I look back and imagine the wedding in the other venues we considered. None of them would have... Read More come close to the atmosphere, beauty, class and level of service we experienced with SMR. The wedding pictures came out today and they are absolutely stunning, indoor and outdoor settings. The upstairs area for the Bride and Bridesmaid to prepare has separate makeup rooms with open windows that look out to the event space. This was magical. As the ladies prepped for the day they could see the vendors setting up the event below and everything coming together before their eyes. It does not get any better in terms of build up, excitement and all day immersion leading up to the most important point in two peoples lives. Thank you Spruce Mountain Ranch, we will be back with more "children".

Spruce Mountain Ranch was the first venue in the Denver area that we looked at and we were both immediately very impressed. The property is beautiful and well-maintained, the facilities are new and clean, and the property managers/event managers are absolute professionals and... Read More wonderful to work with. We worked with Brus who was a delight in every way, communicated in a timely fashion and was always open to our questions and ideas. Budget-wise, SMR was a great choice and we both felt that we got a good value for what we spent and couldn't have been more pleased with how everything turned out. Our wedding day was stunning, everything came together exactly the way we imagined it, and we are still receiving compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue/ceremony site/reception space all were. I truly have no complaints or negative remarks. I will mention that SMR does require you to choose rental, catering and beverage vendors from their preferred vendor list, however, I actually appreciated this as it streamlined my decision making process. Additionally, all the vendors on that list work at SMR nearly every weekend and are consummate professionals who know the venue inside and out. I felt this really made things run smoothly. Looking back on our wedding day fills me with so much joy and I know that is due in large part to the excellent industry professionals we worked with. Everyone told me how important it was to feel good about your vendors and I can tell you with no hesitation that if you select SMR, that is a decision you can feel great about throughout the entire process. Huge thanks to the SMR team for helping make our day everything we hoped it would be!
