    Just Stop Looking. You've found your venue!

    This place is a hidden gem! So very unique and very Western. Everyone who works here is 100% on your side when it comes to making your special day a wonderful day. If you have the option in your budget Marie Yates can be your biggest asset when it comes to this place. She is a wonderful coordinator and will give you the moon if she needs to.

    So if you want a wonderful western outdoor wedding under the milky way at an amazing price point, STOP LOOKING! You found it!

    A Great Venue

    My son and his fiance were married at Vulture Mine last night. The venue is perfect and the wedding planner Marie and her husband, Jay were so helpful. Starting at the planning, rehearsal, setting up, helping the vendors, helping the wedding party, ceremony and tearing down, went smoothly and went off without a hitch because of these two..highly recommend this venue
