I cannot say enough nice things about SDR & Ge especially. Ge made our day the most special & best day of our lives.
We booked over a year out, & I had questions what seemed like every week for Ge! She was very responsive - maybe a few hours to a day - & even went as far as responding on her vacation days. The week before, she called me to go over details I never thought to consider! She is a pro at this, & goes at it in a stress-free way which helps everyone involved! Sue handled all our cabins, & was very flexible with the rearranging we had to do.
The day before, we had our rehearsal & dinner at Cottonwood Gulch - a very secluded but of course beautiful part of the ranch. We had food catered in, BYOB & it was fun, but started on a rough patch due to a communication error on my part - I told people the wrong time, so unnecessary people were around for our actual rehearsal), Ge helped by taking charge & telling ~30 people they need to relocate so we could start the rehearsal.
The day of - WOW! I wish I had more space. Ge was helping my decorator, my husband, the groomsmen, & my family find their places, while leading her own team with their tasks, & THEN stopped by my cabin to make sure we were okay. She noticed I looked nervous because when she asked how she could help, I responded jokingly with "I could use a mimosa!", & she delivered within minutes! The ceremony - she helped keep on time and avoid the rain for us.
Another cool part is we had the ranch to ourselves for 2 nights - 24 hour pool, game room, everything!
We had tons of comments on how good the food was, how cool it was we had local beer, how people want to go back for vacation, how beautiful the location was. All our guests commented on how seamless things seemed to have been.
If you want a less stressful, easy wedding with a coordinator who takes charge and works for you that will leave your guests raving, BOOK HERE! I love SDR and can't wait to go back!! Thanks Ge!!!!!!
Sylvan Dale was great to work with for our wedding. They were hit pretty hard by the floods in Colorado a couple of years ago but have really worked hard to get their space not just back to where it was but to improve it.
Our ceremony site was new this year and absolutely beautiful! After our ceremony, it was a short walk to the reception area. They have a great outdoor area for cocktail hour; we brought some lawn games and people loved just being outside on the swing or just walking around. It was great to have a venue that took care of everything, they had appetizers out right when the ceremony ended and the bar with a great bartender all night long. We chose to do a buffet dinner with some amazing BBQ - people could not stop raving about how awesome the food was. The rest of the night was great with dancing or hanging out in the game room (with pool and ping pong) or again just walking around. Having an outdoor wedding with modern day amenities was really important to me and we struck gold with Sylvan Dale. Another feature that I loved about this venue site was that there were cabins on the property for some of our guests. It was great for out of town family and close friends to be able to stay on site for the night. For other people, it was very easy for us to book a block of hotel rooms in Loveland and also book a shuttle to take them to and from Sylvan Dale.
As far as planning for the day went, Ge, our wedding coordinator was a dream. She made sure that all of the details for the day were ironed out prior to the day and she made it so that we could relax and really enjoy our wedding. She was always prompt in responding to emails and the week before the wedding she was available to me by cell phone too. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants an outdoor wedding but doesn't want the hassle of having to bring and take out everything.
Jade, thank you so much for your kind words! We truly loved working with the two of you throughout the entire wedding process! We wish you all the best!
Oh man where to begin?? Not very many people can say that their wedding day was as amazing as mine and trust me when I say, other than family and one amazing DJ that credit goes to Sylvandale Ranch and their incredible staff! They helped with everything from prep to clean up, and Ge did everything possible to keep everything on track and organized!! Not to mention the sheer beauty of the venue even with the recent construction!!! They made the day what it was and I will not hesitate to spread the word and be a return customer! Thank you for making my wedding the best experience I could have asked for and so much more!!!
It was a pleasure working with you and your "team". We wish you all the best! --Ge
We were extremely pleased with Sylvan Dales ability to recover from devastating flooding and give us the wedding of our dreams. They were reliable and very easy to work with. We always knew how things were progressing. Ge Moore was an outstanding event coordinator and we had complete faith in her ability to make this an outstanding event. We would with out hesitation recommend this venue.
Thank you for the kind words, Tina. It was truly a pleasure working with you. All of us here at Sylvan Dale wish you tremendous success and happiness! All the best--Ge
We married on horseback on top of Eagle Ridge. The view was spectacular. The staff was very accommodating and made great effort to make our wedding a memorable event. We look forward to returning again.
The whole experience at Sylvan Dale was beyond perfect. Thanks to the wonderful staff we didn't have a single hiccup or issue. The setting is beautiful and natural, the people are courteous and professional, and the price was extremely fair. We had an amazing experience for our 20 year renewal and could not have had a more perfect day.
Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch was the perfect location for our wedding. It was private and the perfect size for our wedding. Since the majority of our guests came from outside of Colorado, Sylvan Dale was perfect so that we could have the wedding, the reception, and the lodging all in one location.
Alaina Johnson, the wedding coordinator at Sylvan Dale, was amazing at communicating promptly with us. She even helped up navigate guests to the ranch around a bike race that got scheduled to run past the ranch, closing down the roads on one of the days that many of the guests were traveling to the ranch.
Our wedding was absolutely perfect, we just wish that the storm hadn't rolled through 3 weeks later, flooding the entire venue and destroying an amazing and beautiful place. We will definitely be back to spend our first year anniversary there in August.
Can't say enough great things about Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch as a wedding site! The area is beautiful, the staff, every single person we interacted with, was superb, the food was delicious. A special Thanks to Alaina, our wedding coordinator and her assistant Hannah for taking such good care of us and making the whole wedding flow so smoothly. I highly recommend Sylvan Dale for a true Colorado wedding experience!
Sylvan Dale was an amazing venue and the perfect place for our wedding. All of the staff was friendly and helpful and super accommodating to all of our requests. Alaina did a great job making sure everything ran smoothly and I didn't have to stress about anything on my big day. Thank you all so much!!!
Sylvan Dale was the perfect spot for our special day! The staff was amazing and was willing to help with whatever we needed. It was so nice to have one place that took care of pretty much everything (ceremony, reception, lodging) and it was extremely affordable! overall we spent around $7000 for ceremony, reception with buffet and open bar for 100 guest (the food was amazing) We also reserved and paid for lodging on the site for around 30 guest that was included in the $7000. So overall it was really affordable. And the VIEWS!! It was so beautiful! Right at the base of the Rocky Mountains! I could not have asked for a more perfect place! I absolutely recommend Sylvan Dale to any couple!
Alaina did a great job coordinating our day.
We are so happy that we had our wedding at Sylvan Dale! Alaina the wedding coordinator was accessible, friendly, and flexible. It was so easy to work with her! Our ceremony and reception were beautiful and affordable. Our guests enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and Alaina kept our event on schedule. We would absolutely recommend Sylvan Dale to anyone and hope to visit again soon!

The staff at Sylvan Dale, especially Alaina, went above and beyond to make my daughter's wedding perfect. Alaina was there throughout the event to make sure our every need was met. The food was fabulous, the location was beautiful, and we all had an absolutely wonderful time. The next morning the wedding party enjoyed breakfast together and a gorgeous Colorado morning walking along the river banks and saying goodbye slowly. Perfect, perfect. Thank you, Sylvan Dale!
Alaina was cheerful, practical and extremely flexible. She was available to answer questions and to meet our needs. In spite of last minute weather changes she rolled with what ever needed to be done and with whatever changes need to be made to meet the quests' and bridal party's needs.
Throughout our planning process we knew weather might be a factor. Of course it was and we got one of those heavy Colorado spring snowstorms. We had to move the ceremony inside. It went very smoothly and our guests tell us it was perfect. The fireplace was lit just before the ceremony and provided a beautiful backdrop for the wedding party. We could not have been more pleased.
Everyone at Sylvan Dale was so easy to work with. They were all so flexible with everything from the initial planning to the blizzard of a day the wedding was. They made it possible for me to have a stress and worry free wedding day!!!
