I can't give enough praise!
I don't feel like I'm exaggerating when I say that this venue was perfect! They were very professional and knew exactly what they were doing. The food was terrific, the service was exceptional, all of the staff looked happy to be there and ready to help! I also appreciated the kind of "all-in-one" feel this venue gave. They took care of catering, bartending, and a lot of the set up/clean up. We were responsible for what we brought; it was that simple! I would highly recommend these guys for your venue.

Our wedding was on June 30th, and we were very happy with The Pines. The staff is very professional from the get-go, and answered any questions we had in a very timely and succinct manner. The ceremony sites are beautiful, the reception was very well set up, and all of the guests we spoke to commented on how amazing the venue was in general. There are a lot of rules that must be followed (i.e. use of their catering service, how high up candle flames can go, using real flower petals, etc.), but I felt like that information was very up front. We compared pricing between their in-house catering and other catering in Denver before booking, and it was very similar cost wise-not to mention their food was absolutely delicious.
It was nice to have all of the tables, linens, plates, cups, cutlery, etc. taken care of by the venue. An event coordinator is also there to help make sure you know what's going on before the event (including a planning meeting), and helps with any issues the day of. Our event coordinator was Regan, and she was truly amazing. I would definitely recommend The Pines to anyone who wants to get married in the mountains, but stay close to the Denver area.

The Pines is a PERFECT venue. The Pines offers that mountain/wilderness taste of Colorado without the price tag of a true mountain wedding. It is a beautiful location and we were lucky enough to have a few deer trot by during our photos! The staff are fabulous. From the initial tour to our planning meeting to the day-of execution- they know their stuff. The venue is quite reasonably priced, they let you bring in your own alcohol (which saves a ton of money), and their food is very good. The venue does off-site catering as well, so you know the food is a home run. They do monthly tastings which are great to take advantage of. We had so many compliments on both the venue and the food. Nichole was our coordinator and she was a joy to work with- she was organized, calm, accommodating and professional. The catering staff was great as well, as the banquet captain was attentive and there for our every need. You can't go wrong with choosing this venue, the whole planning process was seamless with their support. They have great relationships with vendors and can make good recommendations. With two ceremony options and two reception offerings- they can work with so many different visions!
