Amazing Venue and Staff!
The Venue is gorgeous! It’s perfect for our wedding! It’s absolutely Beautiful!! The staff at Lionsgate are very professional! If you need help finding any vendors they help you and the vendors they suggest also come with discounts! We had a family emergency and the staff and manager were very understanding and helped us find a plan to pay the remaining balance we owed. The staff at Lionsgate are truly amazing!Sent on 11/07/2019

Lionsgate is Amazing!! the staff is hard working and very friendly. Ashley Bellerive was our Coordinator and we couldn't have asked for a better coordinator! Ashley, was wonderful in getting to know both my husband and I and our vision for our wedding. I wanted tons of Disney elements and Ashley helped make our fairytale wedding come true! She was quick to reply to questions and very patient with me when I changed my mind many times! Ashley and the other staff were very professional and knowledgable when it came to covid-19 restrictions and all that. With Lionsgate's and Ashley's major help we were still able to have the wedding of our dreams in the midst of a pandemic. They kept us up to date with any changes during the covid shut downs and helped ease our stress. I highly recommend Lionsgate venue but I even more Highly recommend Ashley Bellerive as a Coordinator! Just a wonderful experience all around! Thank you!Sent on 11/10/2020

Best Value, Best Staff
2020 Covid bride here! I toured Lionsgate in 2019 when my now husband and I got engaged, and we immediately fell in love. You can tell it is a super special venue, and everyone I communicated with throughout my experience was so kind. There are so many different spaces on the property that can speak to different types of brides which I love, but I completely fell head over heels for the stained glass. You are not going to find that anywhere else.Sent on 02/08/2021
As I then went through the booking process, and started working with our day of coordinator, Ashley Bellerive, she was so much more than a day of coordinator. I am a huge planner, and loved getting all of the details put together and thought through, but the level of research she put into putting my vision onto actual paper was just completely above and beyond. I felt the work she did honestly was like having a real wedding planner to hold my hand through so many issues and questions. She reached out to all of the vendors that involved the venue, and coordinated meetings and questions and proposals. She had great suggestions and recommendations for anything I asked her, and really made an effort to understand what I was wanting to achieve and what was most important to William and I on our big day.
Unfortunately, our wedding was planned for October 2020, and all of our guests had to fly in. Due to Covid, that just wasn’t going to be safe. I had been optimistic for awhile, but once the summer came and we realized travel was not going to be safe, we worked with Ashley on rescheduling a date for 2021. Even though restrictions for Colorado would have allowed our wedding to move forward per venue regulations, Ashley and the venue understood our individual predicament, and worked with us to find a new wedding date that wouldn’t require a rescheduling fee.
As of now, due to Covid and it’s effect on my husband and I’s personal lives and jobs, we then faced the fact that we needed to cancel our wedding completely for financial reasons. Despite having planned so many things out already with Ashley, she and the venue were extremely kind and understanding, and came up with several different ideas to try to work with us in the future. We did go through with canceling, but even through that process Ashley was amazing. She communicated with all of our booked vendors to try to see if anyone would be able to refund us any amount of the deposits we paid. Based on my experience with Ashley, I feel like she should be an independent wedding planner lol. But then again, Lionsgate has such a family feel to it, and everyone I met with had that same passion and joy, the entire company is probably on that level.
Planning your wedding with Lionsgate will not only get you a beautiful venue to host your most precious day, but the experience will be another joy to add to your journey of love. I cannot recommend this venue and the staff enough

Lionsgate is one of our favorite places to work because the Lionsgate Event Coordinators are so detailed oriented and wonderful to work with! They are always smiling, accommodating, and thorough whenever a client has questions. There are a variety of spaces to host an event and they also have an awesome selection of decor items to choose from - they are the definition for a one-stop-shop!
Lionsgate is a beautiful hidden gem of a wedding venue just north of Denver. We love photographing weddings here! Their new chandelier barn is the perfect addition to their already beautiful space! We can't wait for our 2017 weddings here!
Lionsgate Center: Dove House & Gatehouse is an incredible event venue. The staff is one of the best in the state! They are extremely professional and organized, as well as being warm and friendly. They understand the needs of todays brides, and know what it takes to plan a successful event every time. It's always a pleasure to work with Lionsgate, and Alex, Karli, Alli, Catherine, and Ashley will make sure all your needs are met. My wife and I got married there, and it was picture perfect. Start your venue search with Lionsgate.
