    Better than we imagined.

    We're still reeling from our wedding experience. Everything was great from start to finish. We went to visit the ranch in the springtime for a tour and food & wine tasting. We rode a ski lift up to the ceremony site, which grants you a BREATHTAKING view of the continental divide. During the tasting, our coordinator Jennifer and the head chef Liana worked with us to select the food and liquor options we loved and were accommodating of our guests with dietary needs.

    In addition to just being a beautiful place with delicious food, the vibe was so perfect; the ranch is laid back in a way that makes you feel incredibly at home without sacrificing an ounce of class. We have two children, so it was important to us to be at a venue where children were welcome, but have the experience still feel very grown & sexy. They nailed it. The Ranch staff have hospitality down to a science.

    Our friends have already started asking us if we're going back to Granby Ranch for our first anniversary. :) We highly recommend this venue, and do hope to return soon!

    Granby Ranch's reply:

    Hello Ariana!
    YOU were the delight to work with! You were so much fun and had such an amazing sense of calm throughout the whole process! I will never forget when you toured how excited you were when you saw Vista Ridge and learned we had a date that worked for you. We are so happy that you had your wedding dream come true! That is the best news and is why we love doing what we do!
    Thanks again!

Why not kick off your greatest adventure with an adventure in of itself? With a variety of recreational activities they can incorporate into a wedding day, Granby Ranch is THE place to make this adventure happen. Not adventurous? That’s ok! Granby Ranch has picturesque mountain views and an attentive staff perfect for just about everyone. Speaking as an experienced DJ and Master of Ceremonies, I can attest to the determination and professionalism of this staff that I had the opportunity to work with at the Maxwell / Buroski wedding.

From the Hip Photo From the Hip Photo Wedding Photographers

There aren't many places in the world like the wedding ceremony site at the top of the ski lift at Granby Ranch! You walk through an aspen-lined path and emerge into a clearing with a wide-open panorama of the mountains. It's basically set on the edge of a cliff with a glorious drop and it is quintessential Colorado at its best. Plus, it's gorgeous both in winter and in summer!
