About

The Barn at Howard Creek Farm is a rustic wedding barn venue in Howard, Colorado. Here, you and your guests can partake in a beautiful experience when you say 'I do'. With scenic views of the Arkansas River and the 13,000-foot Twin Sister peaks of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, you will have a gorgeous backdrop for your special day.

Facilities and Capacity

The Barn at Howard Creek Farm is open for weddings in the months of May through October. This 1890s 11-acre property is a working farm, complete with hay pastures, honey bee hives, growing hops, and more. The venue can host receptions for up to 150 guests, with the barn offering 3,200 square feet of space for indoor events, as well as elegant string lighting throughout. The barn loft acts as a get-ready room for the wedding party. An attached and covered porch is perfect for enjoying the outdoors with some protection from the elements. Large double barn doors open to unify the indoor and outdoor areas, allowing you and your guests an immersive view of the mountains and forests. These views are even clearer at the outdoor ceremony site, which offers bench seating for up to 150 guests to witness your vows. They can even arrange that you arrive or leave the ceremony via a boat on the river.

    Gorgeous views and amazing team!

    Aly and Orlin are amazing! From visiting the barn to signing a contract, it was a seamless process. Aly answered all of my questions quickly and was incredibly patient with me. She is a gem and we couldn't have done this without her! The barn and surrounding views are stunning! I loved everything about it. The mismatched tables and chairs matched my vision for modern vintage perfectly. Even though we were forced to pivot due to a thunderstorm, Aly and Orlin made sure it was still a beautiful and thoughtful experience. We will cherish our time at the barn for years to come!

    Perfect venue near a great little mountain town

    Our September wedding at the Barn at Howard Creek Farm was everything we hoped for and more. First, the Barn is absolutely gorgeous, and the mountain views are unbelievable. Second, Salida (which is only about 15 minutes from the venue) is such a cute mountain town for the bridal party, family, and guests to explore in the days before and after the wedding. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Aly and Orlin (the owners of the venue) are so wonderful. They have thought of just about everything to make weddings at the Barn run smoothly and to make your wedding day great--picturesque ceremony site, amazing farm tables, cute string lighting, two bars, a lovely bridal suite, and nice bathrooms are all included at this venue. Aly and Orlin were communicative, flexible, accommodating, and also just fun people to be around. Also, we are a gay couple, and we can confidently say that this venue and the owners are LGBT friendly--inviting and welcoming to all types of couples. We could not have found a better venue, and we are so happy we got married at the Barn at Howard Creek Farm!

    The Barn at Howard Creek Farm's reply:

    We love you both and are so honored you chose our venue to host your incredible wedding!!! Your friends and family were a complete joy to have here!!

    We hosted our wedding at The Barn at Howard Creek.

    We LOVED getting married at The Barn at Howard Creek Farm! During our very first visit almost two years ago we immediately felt so comfortable there and like we had found the perfect place for our big day. Aly and her family are truly such amazing people and the barn/its surroundings are breathtaking. We also hired Aly as our day of coordinator and she was so terrific and made the whole experience so easy and wonderful. Above anything else at our wedding, our guests complimented the venue the most. Everyone really loved it.

    We love you guys and are so thrilled you chose The Barn at Howard Creek Farm to host your wedding! Your friends and family were a true joy to have here!
