We are so happy we chose to have our wedding here! We were looking to have a smaller, more intimate wedding and noticed they offered a "Petite Wedding Package" which perfectly met our needs. The site is breathtaking, with a beautiful layout! The staff was phenomenal, especially Cheryl who was our event coordinator and helped to make our day run smoothly. We were not expecting it to snow the day of our event, but they accommodated us last minute and moved our whole event around. All of our family, our friends. and our vendors agreed we could not have chosen a better place! Thank you all so much!Sent on 05/15/2019

My husband and I had scheduled tours of several wedding venues, our first being Blackstone. We left Blackstone grinning from ear to ear as we said in unison, "We found it!" We did the obligatory tours elsewhere, but there was never a question of where we would choose. Our family from the world over descended upon Idaho Springs, CO and every single guest has continued to talk about how amazing Blackstone was. Thank you, Blackstone, for setting the stage for our beautiful wedding. We would choose you each timeSent on 11/01/2018

Our perfect weding
We fell in love with this venue immediately. It was the first and last place we looked! Our petite wedding in the fall was lovely and the BRR team was accommodating, attentive and fantastic to work with. We loved the Claimjumper cabin and woke to the sounds of the river on our first morning of married life. We wouldn’t change a thing!Sent on 10/20/2018

The Fever highly recommends the Blackstone Rivers Ranch! Gorgeous Colorado setting! Our clients love how flexible they are and all of the options they offer. We love working with the staff, they're very friendly and accommodating and great partners in timeline management. The venue itself pretty awesome from a band's perspective! Easy access, direct load-in for our gear, plenty of power for a full band, the tent is huge and perfect for having dinner & dancing all together. The ceremony site is right there and it's gorgeous. Ceremony site has power for musicians, if needed, and iPod hookup- everything is right there and ready to go. The staff is eager to assist. They have no early cut off time for music, and a great flow overall. We can't wait to come back and play our next event.
A beautiful mountain venue with cozy quarters for the bridal party to prepare for the ceremony and a private room upstairs for the newlyweds to enjoy their first meal together in privacy. Luxuries such as a fire pit, reclaimed wood tables, and a creek running through the properties are just a few wonderful things about Blackstone Rivers Ranch. The staff is always attentive, helpful, and friendly. We enjoyed working here greatly and look forward to the next time we can make a presence here.
