    Beautiful Venue

    Rist Canyon Inn was the perfect setting for our wedding. Allan and Emily went above and beyond for us during our wedding planning process! Their venue is stunning and unique. We loved the modern event hall, rustic farmhouse and lovely mountain views.

    Why Everyone Should Get Married at Rist Canyon Inn

    What a fabulous wedding venue! My husband and I recently got married at Rist Canyon Inn and had a fantastic experience with the owners, Allan and Emily, as well as with the company they work with for day-of event coordination, Pink Diamond Events.

    The property is gorgeous with an old farm house and cabin. Our ceremony took place out in the field behind the property, which was beautiful this time of year. The newly-built Bellvue Reception Hall was the perfect size and had the best lighting for our celebration. We had a live band, a taco bar, and about 60 guests at our wedding, and couldn't have asked for a better space! The hall's layout and design were very well-thought out and we are so happy we had the opportunity to celebrate our love with our friends and family here.

    Working with Allan, Emily, and our coordinator, Casey, was a true pleasure. They were all very quick to respond to emails and helped organize all of our vendors and our timeline with ease.

    Two weeks later, we are still on cloud 9 from our wedding day. A huge part of that is thanks to the professionalism and helpfulness of the lovely people who own and operate beautiful Rist Canyon Inn. We would highly recommend this venue for the perfect Northern Colorado wedding!
