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!Sent on 09/12/2019
