    Wonderful place to start your lives together!

    I normally do not do reviews, I don't believe most of them, however I personally seen this facility start from a pie in the sky dream, to an amazingly beautiful and unusual wedding facility in such a stunning area of Colorado. Allan the owner along with his wife Emily is the true mom and pop for the twenty first century. His abilities as an internationally renowned lighting designer have graced many of the world’s most exotic hotels, and restaurants into illuminated wonders. Emily is in healthcare and smart as a whip, together they added the perfect amount of karma to develop this warm and comfortable experience for beginning love. What could be more important than that, their wedding hall and housing with a stunning 19-acre property is the starting point for couple’s lives together. I watched them firsthand for years create this from a small farmhouse into a world-class destination. I stayed at their digs plenty of times with my family and know it has just the right amount of vibe that I could not be a better setting to be married in.
