Unforgettable Wedding & Venue
We are Vail locals and wanted a local wedding venue that felt true to us. The setting of the ranch in the mountains and the background of the Gore Range (our favorite) was exactly what we were looking for. Brittany was easy to work and communicate with, answering all of our questions as we navigated a 2021 wedding and the challenges associated with it. Piney and their caterer Cowboy Catering provided an opportunity to see and taste all menu options prior to the wedding. We and all of our guests agreed the food was fantastic. On the day of the wedding Piney's staff worked seamlessly with our wedding planner to ensure all logistics went off without a hitch, despite the weather.Sent on 07/18/2021
