The most beautiful venue!!
Our experience at Blackstone Rivers Ranch was outstanding! There's plenty of parking for your guests, lots of room to spread out and enjoy cocktails in one area, have the ceremony in another, and the reception under a giant gorgeous tent! The bridal and groom suites were exceptionally well decorated and made for some awesome photo opportunities. The staff was so responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. We had originally narrowed it down to the three different locations and given the chance again there's no way we'd go anywhere else. This place is magical!! Truly exceptional space to host the biggest day of your life!Sent on 06/22/2021

The most BEAUTIFUL outdoor wedding venue!!
By far the most BEAUTIFUL venue, we couldn’t have asked for a more stunning, intimate setting. Especially during covid precautions, the outdoor ceremony, beach area, and reception tent was absolutely perfect! Our guests all traveled from out of state to be here for our special day, we had endless compliments on how amazing our wedding was, the scenic views, the weather, the staff, and overwell expressing their amazement at our wedding and how it was the best they’ve ever been toSent on 10/06/2020
Nadine, Cheryl-Anne and the whole team were so accommodating and always responsive over communication needs. They really made the whole day come together as envisioned, highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful, outdoor Colorado mountain setting!

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.
