    Simply incredible

    Blackstone is incredible. We received so much feedback from our guests on how beautiful the space was and overall interacting with the staff was great. They are helpful, responsive, and willing to be flexible with any request. You don't even need to have a ton of decorations/florals because it is already beautiful.

    Blackstone Rivers Ranch's reply:

    Thank you for your feedback, L! We are thankful for couples like you who see the beauty in simplicity. Your wedding was a dream and so much fun! There is so much love in your life

    Great Wedding Experience in the Mountains

    Starting the planning process in the midst of COVID was rough, but Blackstone Rivers Ranch had the perfect petite package that we were looking for - helping us and our guests have peace of mind with the unknown future. Working with their in-house planning team, Blackstone Rivers Ranch was everything we were hoping it would be and more. The space was beautiful and we felt as if we were more remote in the mountains than we actually were. Highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a mountain wedding without having guests trek deep into the range.

    Blackstone Rivers Ranch's reply:

    Cassidy, we absolutely loved being a part of your wedding day. Your vision from day 1 was captivating and we cannot believe how beautiful it turned out! The yellows and purples were by far our favorite! Your friends and family were also nothing short of perfection. THANK YOU for getting married at BRR :) We are forever grateful for your kindness.

    May 20th, 2022

    This was the most magical venue and the staff was amazing! Who know it would snow 20 inches in May?! We still had our ceremony outside, and then moved into the nice warm tent. It was a beautiful day. The staff was there to constantly keep the snow off the side walks till 11pm. They made our special day even better! Thank you

    Blackstone Rivers Ranch's reply:

    What a beautiful day!!! Rachel, your wedding was one we will never forget! 20 inches of snow and the sweetest most down-to-earth couple ever! THANK YOU for being SO great to work with!!! We loved hosting your day and cannot wait to see all your beautiful photos!

The Fever The Fever Wedding Bands

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.

Elevated Catering Elevated Catering Wedding Caterers

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.
