AMAZING venue and staff for our wedding!!
Stove Prairie Ranch is an INCREDIBLE venue for a wedding and has THE most amazing team of people to work with. The venue is absolutely beautiful and Lori is wonderful to work with. She is SO helpful, kind, thoughtful and thinks of everything. It gave me such peace of mind to know that Lori had so much under control - everything from tables and chairs, to the heater we needed to get two days before the wedding because, yes, it snowed in June! :) We loved that we could provide our own alcohol (DEFINTELY helped us stay in our budget) and that we could choose our own vendor for dinner. This venue provides so many services, but is also really flexible. Making sure our wedding day was perfect was Lori's goal and she did everything to make sure that happened. It was an added perk that there was a bridal cottage for the ladies to get ready in and where we also got to spend our wedding night. There is also a place family can rent for the night on the property, which facilitated our morning brunch together the next day. It was really nice to get to stay on the property and take our time cleaning up the next day, rather than rushing around after guests left.
My husband and I loved having our wedding at Stove Prairie and received so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful it was. I would highly, highly recommend this venue to anyone and I know you will love it too.Sent on 12/15/2020

Best Venue and Wedding Coordinator Ever!
The first time we took the drive to Stove Prairie Ranch we fell in love. The seclusion and the pure beauty of the property made it hard not to!
The owner lives on the large piece of land and he drove by to say hello each time we came by during the planning process. He even picked my Dad and I up from the "getting ready" cottage on the day of and drove us to our ceremony site, letting us sit in the air conditioning before walking down the aisle!
Lori is the onsite coordinator... And I couldn't say enough good things about her. She was amazing through this whole process and became a great friend. From the beginning we could tell that she cared and she was very flexible with us after we had to cancel our original wedding in Cancun due to COVID. She replied to all of my texts and kept me in the loop. She was in contact with our vendors during and before the wedding to ensure everything went smoothly. Our September wedding with COVID was already hard enough to plan, but then Colorado broke out in fires and the venue was actually closed due to being in the evacuation zone two days before the wedding. Lori was calling up a storm and writing emails to the sheriff's office titled "In the name of love" and got us an exception the day before, SAVING OUR WEDDING!! It was literally like out of a movie, I still can't believe we pulled it off But we definitely couldn't have done it without her.
There are several buildings on the property for you to use, including a cottage for one party to get ready at, and a loft with pool, darts and a great view for the other party to hangout at before the ceremony. My wedding party did a lot of walking that day because we couldn't have cars going up and down the road with the fire restrictions, but nobody complained and everyone loved the scenery.
The property is beautiful and there's so many different venues locations. We were able to help our ceremony upon the hillside where our guests were brought up by a tractor pulling a hay wagon, which all of our guests loved! We had the most beautiful location with giant rocks as our background with the mountains right behind. But we couldn't have asked for a better location!
Once the ceremony was over everybody walked down the hill and Lori helped coordinate getting people to the reception location. The reception was held outdoors on the terrace which was so rustic and cute! It was a huge hit. She decorated it perfectly. We were able to get some alone time inside the barn at our sweetheart table before the hustle and bustle began. Where Lori made sure we had food sitting at our table so we could eat. She came and brought me drinks, kept me smiling and helped coordinate with our very awful DJ haha.
The indoor barn area is huge but we were able to utilize space with COVID and keep people very distant! They have the most beautiful lighting set up in the barn and very nice restrooms for your guests. They even have a dance floor they put down for you! Inside the barn is a gravel dirt combination but just make sure to book the dry cleaning package for your dress! I wouldn't have changed anything.
Thank you thank you thank you to Lori and the owner of Stove prairie Ranch for a day that we and our guests will not forget!!!Sent on 12/20/2020

We loved Stove Prairie Ranch from the moment we saw the beautiful mountain venue! Lori was great to work with. It is obvious that she absolutely loves what she does. She helped make our vision a reality and provided a lot of ideas that we would have never thought of, but they made our wedding even more special. I was able to ask Lori any questions I had and she was always very quick to respond answering my questions.
We had a late morning ceremony up on the hill, a cocktail hour outside on the terrace and used the indoor arena for our reception where guests were able to eat brunch while still having plenty of room to spread out and allow for proper distancing. We also had yard games set up in the lawn next to the terrace.
We were able to choose our ceremony site on the property from a few different options and personalize it to our liking. We decided on the open site up the hill with a backdrop of mountains and big rocks. Our wedding party was given a tractor ride up the mountain to the ceremony, which was a fun experience! Due to COVID, our guests had to walk up the hill rather than also riding the tractor, but many of them commented that they enjoyed the short walk to the site and how pretty it was once they got to the top. The owner was nice enough to give my grandparents a ride to the ceremony in his car and also gave them a ride back down to the reception. They greatly appreciated his kind act and still talk about how special that made them feel!
We had multiple guests tell us what a beautiful venue it was and that it was one of the most fun and unique weddings they had been to. Our wedding day was everything we had imagined and more! Lori was so supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend this venue! I can't thank SPR and Lori enough for making our day so amazing!Sent on 12/22/2020
My wife and I, have a catering business called Juli y Juan's Kitchen and we have had the pleasure to create a couple of weddings in what we believe if the most amazing property in Northern Colorado. It is a wonderful natural Coloradoan atmosphere where collaboration truly happens. Lori & Mike are amazing hosts and they have the best of intentions into every detail. We can only hope that more clients can hire our culinary arts in the catering business for their events. You will not regret giving them an opportunity, we completely recommend Stover Prairie Ranch for your weddings and events. =D
Stove Prairie Ranch is a beautiful facility to hold your wedding or special event. Their staff is wonderful to work with and will do everything in their ability to ensure you have the wedding or event of your dreams.
Stove Prairie is a wedding venue second to none. The property is expansive, with high end barns, cottages, and gorgeous mountain views. I love how the property has horses running around happily in the surrounding pastures- it's a dream come true! We had the best time working with the staff at Stove Prairie, they are so friendly and accommodating, they go above and beyond to make every event top notch!
