If you're looking for the perfect Colorado indoor/outdoor venue location for your ceremony and reception, then give Briarhurst Manor a call. The venue is conducive to a smooth flow from ceremony through reception and the grounds offer some spectacular areas for wedding photos.
Tucked away, behind the creek and deep within huge old growth trees lies the beautiful Briarhurst Manor. It's lush, green and sprawling grounds harken back to a nobler time when chivalry and romance weren't "bad words"! ; ) The building may be historic, but that does NOT mean "run-down", "musty" or "creaky". It has been perfectly and lovingly maintained and it's just as splendid and solid as it was in the early years (or maybe even more-so...) The Briarhurst has a very professional staff and fantastic food. Did I mention the Garden of the Gods is right down the street? Yeah. Pretty fantastic.
Beautiful location for a wedding and GREAT food also.
