Our La Joya Dulce Dream Wedding
How to I even begin to describe the amazing wedding we had at La Joya Dulce. From the beautiful fall aspen trees and endless valley you looked at during the ceremony to the amazing staff and best wedding planner a girl could ask for (Mandy with La Joya Dulce) this venue exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a hip but classic barn venue with a true Colorado vibe I highly recommend LJD. As the bride I felt so well taken care of all day. Not only did I get to roll up in a 1939 Jaguar replica, I was brought cocktails and samplers of the amazing food without asking. We had our first dance under the stars outside the barn and then the Edison barn lights lite up our dance floor for the night. It was classy, elegant and still country. A must in your search for your perfect day : )Sent on 10/05/2019
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Lizzie - from the day you and Tanner came to tour, I absolutely knew we would be friends for life ... and that you would be a part of the LJD family. We LOVED your wedding. You and Tanner were spectacularly gorgeous ... yes ... but you are just genuinely wonderful people. Thank you so much for your kind words. It was our honor to host your wedding.

We loved it!
We loved having our wedding here, the staff was extremely accommodating and the setting/scenery was gorgeous. We had so much fun, and being able to have not only the ceremony and reception but also the rehearsal dinner at the venue was great. The communication between the staff and us during the planning process helped make our special day perfect and stress free!Sent on 10/08/2019
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Ari - ice, ice, baby! We loved surprising you ... but even more we loved getting to know you and Kelsey. From the time you (without Kelsey!) selected the venue through your wedding day ... it was magical. We can't wait for photos, and we can't wait to see you again. Welcome to the LJD family!

The scenery at this venue is stunning! The owners and staff are professional, helpful, and made the entire experience so amazing! We had use of the property for three days and never felt rushed. They have a day of coordinator who was amazing to work with and made the entire wedding day go off without any issues! Would highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a dream wedding!Sent on 08/16/2019
