We were married at the Willow Ridge on 10/17/20. The venue is beautiful and our guests were amazed by the scenery. The outdoor ceremony space is gorgeous, and from there you can easily walk to red rock formations which are great for pictures. Our cocktail hour was also outside and the guests loved it. Gregory and Lawrence take great care to ensure every detail of your day is taken care of; this was apparent during our final walkthrough as well as our ceremony rehearsal. The bridal suite was perfect to get ready in, and host my hair and makeup artists with plenty of space, and a steamer! We also took some beautiful pictures on the balcony. Plenty of parking for our 70 guests. Above all, the owners really care about making your big day special.Sent on 04/14/2021

Gregory & Lawrence
While the building, decor and location sets the tone of a venue, Gregory and Lawrence are the heartbeat that makes Willow Ridge Manor unique. The two, business partners and partners for life, bring over 50 years of shared experience to each wedding at Willow Ridge Manor.
Gregory has owned Willow Ridge Manor since 1997. He was born in Warsaw Poland, (Only 27 years ago, so he said!) and emigrated to the United States in the early 1980’s. He brings his unique sense of humor and a deep commitment to making each and every guest feel welcome to your event. His background was in mechanical engineering, but finding that too constraining, dealing with figures and forces, he changed direction and jumped into the world of events and weddings. Guests have commented that there are no strangers at a Willow Ridge Wedding, as Gregory will greet and talk to everyone.
Lawrence started in hospitably just out of high school, working in hotels and restaurants. He and Gregory owned a catering company in the Denver Metro area for 20 years, until they closed the business in 2015, when Lawrence came over to Willow Ridge Manor to work with Gregory full time as his Facilities Manager.
Gregory and/or Lawrence are present for each and every event held at Willow Ridge Manor. As one bride stated in her review, “On our wedding day Lawrence and Gregory were very attentive and helpful all while being appropriately in the background to allow us our special day.”
Gregory and Lawrence are the Power Team to make the wedding of your dreams a reality.
Gregory and Lawrence are an absolute pleasure to work with! They treat everyone like family and go above and beyond to make every experience so memorable. The Manor is perfect for anyone looking for vintage charm and gorgeous views within a short drive from Denver.
We LOVE to work at Willow Ridge. Greg always makes sure that he runs a wonderful and elegant event which helps make my job as DJ that much easier. Contact him toady because summer dates book fast, and for good reason.
Gregory and his staff are by far the nicest and easiest people to work with. They responded quickly and efficiently to every request I had. They went above and beyond to make the event a success for the bride, groom, their family and friends. The outdoor ceremony site has breathtaking views and the layout of the reception hall is precise. I look forward to working with the staff at Willow Ridge in the future, fantastic job! You are my preferred venue!!!
