    Beautiful Venue. Great Owners. Amazing Weddings.

    This is one of the most beautiful venues that I have ever worked at as a caterer! Not only does the venue capture you with it's charm, the owners, Allen and Emily are amazing people to work with. They are professional, they are detail oriented, they have thought of everything in building this venue, and they even make sure that the lighting in the hall is just perfect for you and your guests. I would recommend this venue to anybody looking for great customer service, Colorado charm and views that you will be thinking about long after a wedding! 10/10 for RCI!

    Simply the Best

    This place is magical. I did a LOT of research before choosing Rist Canyon Inn, and there is simply no better venue for an indoor/outdoor wedding in Northern Colorado. The owners of the property are wonderful, generous, attentive people who were a joy to work with. Their wedding coordinator, Amie, was a lifesaver about seventy different times throughout the planning process and day-of. The venue itself is breathtaking: it's the perfect balance of natural wild beauty and subtle elegant touches. I loved that it didn't feel cookie-cutter or like a packaged deal; we got to make it our own and truly feel like the space was ours. I couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect place for such an unforgettable day.

    Jaclyn,
    Wow! What an incredible review. You and Daniel were a joy to host, and your families are wonderful. It makes our job truly enjoyable.
    And when couples are happy it makes all of what we do worth it. Thank you so very much. Emily and I wish you and Daniel a wonderful life! Allan

    Made our wedding perfect!

    The easiest choice we made for our wedding was having it at Rist Canyon Inn. The location is absolutely beautiful and has the best flow for your big day! Emily and Allan were amazing from day one and it was so fun having them involved in our planning, they had great ideas and suggestions and are just fun to be around. They went above and beyond to make sure our big day went off without a hitch! We have the absolute best day because we chose to have our wedding here! Thank you!!!

    Hello Kellsie & Gianluca,
    You guys were a joy to host, and a true pleasure to have at our venue. I'm hoping we can use some of your photos (for promo) as you were our most beautiful group :-) . But only if you are OK with it.
    Thank you for the incredible review. Emily and I wish the two of you a wonderful life! Allan and Emily
