Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch (SDR) was absolutely amazing. They were super easy to work with from day 1. My Husband and I went to visit the ranch 1 year prior to our expected wedding date to see if we liked the venue and stayed the night there on one of their winter get-away packages. From the moment we walked in the door, we fell in love. It was further solidified at breakfast the next morning with the owner who came in and told us all about the ranch's history. We met with Ge after our check-out and took a tour and went through details of the weddings they host. We booked right away and everything continued to fall into place. Ge worked very hard to ensure our needs were met and we had all of our guests stay at the ranch the day before and the day of the wedding. The Wednesday before the wedding was a HUGE snowstorm where they closed the airport and roads into Colorado. We were supposed to be staying at the ranch that day as well, but were completely snowed in where we live in Parker. Ge checked in on me many times as we continued to watch the weather. She worked with me to ensure everything continued to go as planned and we made it up to the ranch in time for the rehearsal on Thursday. Ge made sure to have everything prepared and perfect in our "back-up" ceremony location. They refunded us for the missed night due to weather and worked with us on last minute seating changes as several guests were unable to make it due to cancelled flights. The day of the wedding, Ge brought us mimosas and helped get everything in order and made sure everything was perfect as I was getting ready. She made sure I didn't stress about a thing and everything was absolutely perfect. The staff at SDR was so amazing throughout the rehearsal dinner and the wedding and breakfast the next morning. I seriously could not imagine a better place to get married and am so grateful that we found SDR and Ge. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to have an amazing event near Estes Park!

The views at Sylvan Dale are amazing and mountainous for both the ceremony and the reception area. Sarah is the wedding coordinator and she has really thought of everything to make sure you are taken care of. We looked at venues in Vail, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek and Estes Park, and went with Sylvan Dale because so much is included with the venue for a great price.
Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch is one of the best venues in Colorado! Every area in this large, rambling property has incredible natural views, from the river to the canyon walls to the horse pastures and the peaks. On top of that, the whole staff is absolutely incredible. Wedding coordinators Ge and Sarah take care of the needs of everyone; they are responsive and on top of every detail. Even though they're working hard to make sure the wedding day goes smoothly for all guests, they also take care of their vendors, keeping everyone apprised of the plans and making sure we're fed and hydrated. We appreciate this so much--they are not only making their guests happy, but they're making sure that all the vendors at a wedding can give our mutual clients the best possible service. We'll be happy to photograph events at Sylvan Dale absolutely any time! Thanks to everyone there! --Heather and Gunnar
