This ructic & elagant venue is probably 45 minutes or less for your Denver area guests and the staff was unbelievably helpful! We were cheerfully accomodated and assisted at every turn. I would highly recommend this venue for any wedding/reception/party or large corporate event - amazing! From the beginning, Coco, Madi and Eric worked with us, from vision down to the details. Some family friends did a pig roast for us, with all the trimmings. Staff at CREC took over serving, replinishing, cleaning up, etc.. all with smiles on their faces and hustle in their steps. Eric heard some murmuring about issues we were having with the local hotel where we had blocked rooms for our guests. He immediately got on the phone with the hotel and rectified the situation. At the end of the night, the CREC staff almost took over our clean up duties, we were not in it alone. And the best nightcap, the hotel sent the shuttle bus driver home before all our guests were back at the hotel - well, guess who became our shuttle driver, Eric! He drove his car over to the hotel, got the shuttle keys from the front desk, and returned to CREC with the shuttle bus! We were taken care of until the lights were out and the gates were locked. Reserving CREC for my daughter's wedding was one of the best wedding decisions we madeSent on 09/11/2016

Perfect Venue in Denver/Boulder Area
Church Ranch Event Center is one of the best wedding venues in the Denver/Boulder area, hands down. The staff is so friendly, professional, goes above and beyond... there are not enough adjectives to express our gratitude for the fantastic work and effort this team put in to make our wedding absolutely perfect.Sent on 07/01/2019
Mitchell and his entire team are so organized and passionate about what they do. There was no stone left unturned, no detail left without discussion, everyone is thorough and kind. All of the planning and conversations they set up in the beginning really pays off to create the most seamless and memorable possible. They want to make sure that everything you need happens, and everything that you want is accommodated.
Out of all the venues we looked at, we decided on CREC in the end because of the staff. And when it came to the day-of, it was the staff that made everything happen and reaffirmed our decision to go with CREC for our wedding day.
It ended up raining during our ceremony time, and the staff already had both ceremony set up's inside and out, and gave us the ultimate control over what we did. They were willing to do whatever it took to make everything absolutely perfect. We ended up having it inside, and for those that are concerned about missing out on getting married in their outdoor ceremony space, trust me, the indoor set up is equally as beautiful (and intimate!!).
During the day of, EVERYTHING is on time. My husband and I work in logistics and events for a living, and never in our careers have we ever seen an event run so smoothly and on schedule. Mind you, nothing felt rushed, we were able to enjoy every moment, questions were brought to us discretely and professionally when they needed our input, and we were able to relax knowing that all the details were being managed by CREC staff and the vendors we hired to work with them.
Our coordinator, Victoria, was phenomenal. She was so fun to work with and made sure we were at ease throughout the whole process and answered our (many) questions from beginning to end.
This venue is extremely transparent about their pricing, contracts, add-on's and more. Again, as folks that work with events frequently, the level of transparency and up-frontness (if that's even a word) was next to none. There were no surprise charges, we did not feel pressured to purchase anything we didn't want, and for all of the help we received from beginning to end, the full price of this venue is unlike anywhere else we have ever looked or worked at.
This team works their butts off to make YOU happy, content and excited about your big day. The grounds are beautifully maintained and makes for AMAZING photos. Although the venue is very "rustic," it is such a blank canvas and so beautiful, you are able to pull off more formal weddings without breaking a sweat.
We cannot recommend CREC enough for brides/couples searching for the perfect venue in Colorado.

Best Venue Ever!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and all that they employ. Much like everybody else's experiences, the staff was INCREDIBLE. So very attentive, throughout the entire process, gracious when things didn't always go right and, the day of they blew it, me, my husband, and all our guests out of the water.Sent on 06/25/2019
I am an Executive Assistant and I work for the CEO of a rather large company. I work for folks that are used to receiving White-Glove service and I've often wondered what it would be like to live in that world. Well, I had my dream come true just a week ago! We had top-notch white-glove service!
The caterer, Bread Winners, was a venue approved caterer and the food was so good we have friends and family asking for their name and local restaurant location!!! Thank you CREC for doing the vetting for us!
If weddings weren't so expensive we would do it yearly and I would pick Church Ranch Event Center EVERY time!!!
We've covered a multitude of events at Church Ranch over the years and it's a great venue! It has an amazing garden with awesome areas to do your photographs and the renovation it underwent a few years ago gives it a modern feel. Awesome location to hold your event.
Church Ranch Event Center is a beautiful venue for weddings. The grounds are stunning and create the perfect backdrop. Inside is warm and inviting with plenty of space. The staff is terrific and able to handle every request with skill and grace. As an officiant, I love to work with couples at Church Ranch!
Fabulous venue...especially their beautiful grounds! Great people to work with as well!
