    The Perfect Venue

    We really struggled to find a venue near enough to Boulder (our home) that felt secluded and remote. We went to at least 6 different venues, each one near a main road or adjacent to a parking lot before we were ready to give up. In comes Blackstone - it is remote, but accessible. It is surrounded by woods, your guests feel like they're getting the complete CO experience without having to trek to Vail. It's expensive, but I really thought it was worth every penny. Their team was FABULOUS - the wedding ran so smoothly - they even set up a fire pit with s'mores for all of our guests! I cannot recommend this venue enough.

    Blackstone Rivers Ranch's reply:

    Courtney, your review means so much to us. We've looked at your wedding photos a million times and honestly cannot stop looking. You and your hubby were such sweet-hearted souls that we thankfully had the privilege to know. We appreciate your honesty and wish we could host a thousand events like yours. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts

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.
