I would highly recommend the Pines at Genesee for any event. I held my wedding there a couple weeks ago, and everything was fantastic. I had the opportunity to work with Lindsay and Vivien, who were both absolutely incredible. They were very responsive, helpful and fun to... Read More work with. They also helped alleviate much of the stress that comes with planning a wedding (especially when you are trying to plan the last 3 months from a different state). The ceremony sites are beautiful and with the venue being so close to Genesee Park, there are several gorgeous spots for photos. The food at the reception was also very good. We received numerous compliments from our guests about how it wasn’t your typical “wedding” buffet – the meats were very tender and juicy and the sides were fantastic. It’s also decently affordable, especially considering its location.

We got married on August 1, 2015 and i cannot say enough great things about the pines! We worked with regan and she was absolutely amazing! Everything about our day was perfect.

The Pines was an amazing value for everything they did for us on our big day. I had a personal coordinator and she helped us every step of the way! We used the venue for our ceremony and reception.

I loved how much communication they had with us before the wedding, ensuring every detail was as we liked! The place is beautiful and the staff was absolutely wonderful, even my guests commented on how friendly and helpful they were! The only reason why I didn't give them 5... Read More stars is because they only give you an hour and a half before the ceremony to come in and set up since they have 2 weddings per day. That made it extremely difficult and we had to have a lot of family and friends come early to set up for this reason. It also meant that as the bride (and the one that worked for a year on planning every detail) I could not see or help with setting up. On top of that, the weddings were so close together that all of our vendors' trucks were arriving as the first wedding's guests were walking from the ceremony to the reception.. which I'm sure they didn't appreciate. Also, as mentioned previously, they have a lot of rules about petals, decorations, candles, etc. that tailored our wedding which made me feel like I couldn't do all that I would have liked. I would definitely recommend them, but be sure you are REALLY ok with having 2 weddings overlapping and having minimal time for setup.

Everyone at The Pines was wonderful. From our first meeting with Regan to the many emails to Vivian and then of course to all the staff at the ceremony and reception... I can't say thank you enough to all of them! I had previously worked as a wedding professional and started... Read More asking a lot of questions about how they would handle some of the crazy things I had encountered... They had a very quick and well thought out answer for all of them. The weather in Evergreen had been incredibly rainy the days leading up to the wedding and it poured during our rehearsal, we didn't even get to run through it outside! Needless to say I was a little worried. But they took care of everything, they set up the chairs inside "just in case" and thankfully the weather couldn't have been more perfect! The food was outstanding and people continue to talk about how great everything was. I would highly recommend this venue and the staff. We couldn't have asked for better!

Stephanie was incredible to work with and the food was incredible. She accommodated all of our weird dietary restrictions (we had a salad with strawberries, which i am allergic to, so mine was served without strawberries), and even weird requests like my dad wanting the...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Stephanie and the Pines Catering staff!!! We used their catering services at another venue. From start to finish, every contact with Stephanie was encouraging, professional, thorough and genuinely heartfelt. She talked me "off the... Read More ledge" several times!! She was into every detail of the reception to make certain everything fit together perfectly...more like a wedding coordinator than the caterer. Her staff was courteous and attentive, and very professional. I was amazed that they were able to transform our venue into our event in under 90 minutes!! And then do the same for cleanup! We were given several choices in our price range for food, and what we chose was delicious. Make sure you select the pistachio bread in your bread basket mix...a real treat! But the true gem of using the Pines is Stephanie. She listens, follows through, is compassionate and truly cares that your dream for your event translates into reality. She took care of every special need and request for dietary issues as well as favorite cocktails, delivery of appetizers and beverages to the couple during their photo time, and special attention for the grandparents. She made our daughter and son-in-law's day so special. I am sad I don't have another event to do in Denver so that I can work with her again!

The Pines catered our wedding at the Evergreen Lake House in June 2015. Honestly, if we could give them 10 stars, we totally would!! My husband has a severe food allergy (Celiac disease) and we had the hardest time finding a caterer who would accommodate his restrictions.... Read More Some caterers flat-out denied our request, saying they didn't feel comfortable with the restrictions, and other caterers couldn't promise that there would be no cross-contamination. You can imagine our relief when we met Stephanie and her staff at The Pines! We knew we were in good hands when the food at our tasting was beautiful, delicious, and my husband had absolutely no allergic reaction to any of the dishes. The chef took special care to clean and sanitize any equipment that had previously come in contact with any allergens. Stephanie helped us create a brunch menu with a wide variety of amazing dishes, even accommodating our request for fruit cobblers for dessert! On the day of our wedding, the catering staff took care of all the linens & table set-up. Our buffet line was clean and well-arranged, and the food both looked and tasted AMAZING. Our wedding guests were astonished that all the food was completely gluten free - we've had requests for The Pines fluffy & delicious GF pancake recipe ever since! My husband was so happy that he didn't have to worry about getting sick due to his allergy - he felt great all day! In addition to the delicious food and stunning setup, we had a number of positive comments about the amazing employees and service from The Pines. Our wedding photographers noted, "The way this company treats you, your family, and your guests is unmatched. They are truly the best!" We couldn't agree more. We will be singing the praises of The Pines Catering any time we describe our wedding. Thank you, Stephanie (and team!) for making our day so wonderful!

AMAZING!!! Stephanie did a such a great job with the catering for our wedding. She was more like a wedding planner than just the catering manager. She cared about every detail of my reception and made sure everything was perfect. We had some spacing issues, which was very...

Our experience with The Pines overall was good. We appreciated that they provided just about everything we needed for our wedding.

The location and set up were beautiful and they followed our instructions to a T. The food was amazing and all of our guests raved about it. They were also very on top of communication, answering any questions we had quickly and accommodating any changes we needed to make throughout the process. We did have to be careful about certain things we added because many things came with extra charges and fees. Our biggest struggle with The Pines was their lack of flexibility. They had many rules about using their venue including a strict schedule, rules about how you can decorate, what you can't throw (flower petals, birdseed, etc.) and many other things. Our ceremony was at 9:30am and we were not allowed at the venue before 8am. We had to work extra hard and fast to get everything set up and ready to go in just an hour. They also sent our coordinator out several times during our photos to rush our photographer along. At one point an employee even refused to open an upstairs bathroom for my husband before we entered the downstairs reception. At the Pines you gat a lot and it is very high quality, you just need to be very creative and flexible to work around their strict rules and schedule.

Beautiful setting and reasonable prices.

This is a beautiful location to have your wedding. Our wedding was at the beginning of June and the surrounding greenery made for a beautiful back drop in pictures.
