Piney River Ranch, a wedding venue in Vail, Colorado, highlights the area’s natural and rugged beauty. Because it's set at the foot of the Gorge Range, couples will have stunning mountains towering high above them as their wedding backdrop. In this private setting, couples and guests will be delighted by the forty-acre property brimming with lakes and parts of the expansive White River National Forest.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples have the option of experiencing their wedding ceremony and celebration outdoors, taking in the majestic beauty of this wilderness retreat, or indoors. At the Piney River Ranch, you can invite up to 200 of your friends and family. The property also features two custom log pavilions as well as many settings, such as the ceremony dock, that offer clear views of the surrounding mountains. For couples or guests who want to continue their stay at the ranch and enjoy its many amenities, they can choose from the six guest cabins or three glamping tents.

Services Offered
The Piney River Ranch is available for all parts of your wedding; from your bridal shower or engagement party all the way to your reception. The property is also available for couples looking for a photoshoot location for their engagement photos or portraits. With the gorgeous scenery found on the forty aces, couples will have many backdrop options to choose from.

Cuisine
Piney River Ranch also features an in-house caterer. Each couple can choose from the six different menu packages to be served at their wedding as a buffet. Whichever package or entrée, appetizer, or side section you choose will be served “ranch style” to fit in with the setting.

Double rainbow all the way!!!!

The most beautiful place in the world. The weather was all over the place in the most perfect way. Sun for the ceremony, rain during cocktail hour, a FREAKING DOUBLE rainbow after the rain, and a gorgeous sunset against the mountains. Obviously, everyone knows Piney for it's natural beauty. But Brittany and Monique and the rest of the team made our day incredible. Every wedding inevitably has issues that come up, and the measure of success was that every single issue was handled seamlessly and my wife and I had a perfect night with all our friends and family. Also, Piney does require Cowboy Catering for their food service, and working with them was great in the sense that we could request changes to the menu after the tasting. And all the guests kept commenting about how this was the best wedding food they'd ever had. Lastly, we HIGHLY recommend the cabin buyout. All the older adults went back down to their hotels, but all our ~50 friends and cousins stayed in the cabins with us. We had several bonfires, went for a late night dip in the lake, and stayed up the whole night in our PJs having a great time. This was honestly one of the most underrated aspects of Piney.

The Absolute Best Day Ever!

Working with the team at Piney River Ranch was an absolute pleasure. Brittany, Mo and the entire team worked hard to make everything perfect from our initial booking all the way through planning. On our wedding day, everyone did an amazing job to make sure everything went smoothly. We also booked out all of the cabins where we enjoyed the fire pits under the beautiful night sky with endless stars above. Overall, we were extremely blessed to have had our wedding in such beautiful mountain setting working with such fantastic people! Many thanks to the entire Piney Team!

The most beautiful wedding venue

We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue to exist in the world. Our day was perfect and we did not have to think about a thing because the staff at Piney River Ranch was on top of it. The food catered by their in-house caterer was delicious and received rave reviews from our guests. If you’re worried about the road, it was worth it. We had our 81 grandma take the Timberline Tour Bus up and no sickness to report. Everyone called it an adventure and forgot about it once they saw the view.

Definitely recommend the full buy-out and sleepover after. It was such a special way to cap off our wedding, sitting around the bonfire with our closest friends.
