Our La Joya Dulce Dream Wedding
How to I even begin to describe the amazing wedding we had at La Joya Dulce. From the beautiful fall aspen trees and endless valley you looked at during the ceremony to the amazing staff and best wedding planner a girl could ask for (Mandy with La Joya Dulce) this venue exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a hip but classic barn venue with a true Colorado vibe I highly recommend LJD. As the bride I felt so well taken care of all day. Not only did I get to roll up in a 1939 Jaguar replica, I was brought cocktails and samplers of the amazing food without asking. We had our first dance under the stars outside the barn and then the Edison barn lights lite up our dance floor for the night. It was classy, elegant and still country. A must in your search for your perfect day : )Sent on 10/05/2019
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Lizzie - from the day you and Tanner came to tour, I absolutely knew we would be friends for life ... and that you would be a part of the LJD family. We LOVED your wedding. You and Tanner were spectacularly gorgeous ... yes ... but you are just genuinely wonderful people. Thank you so much for your kind words. It was our honor to host your wedding.

We loved it!
We loved having our wedding here, the staff was extremely accommodating and the setting/scenery was gorgeous. We had so much fun, and being able to have not only the ceremony and reception but also the rehearsal dinner at the venue was great. The communication between the staff and us during the planning process helped make our special day perfect and stress free!Sent on 10/08/2019
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Ari - ice, ice, baby! We loved surprising you ... but even more we loved getting to know you and Kelsey. From the time you (without Kelsey!) selected the venue through your wedding day ... it was magical. We can't wait for photos, and we can't wait to see you again. Welcome to the LJD family!

Our big day wouldn't have happened without the help of Mandy and the entire LJD team! They are very organized and accommodating with requests and responses. Mandy made every detail I dreamed of come to life. I would highly recommend booking their venue for your special day.Sent on 12/03/2019

Best Destination Venue in Colorado!
La Joya Dulce is indeed the SWEET GEM of Steamboat Colorado. We truly cannot say enough amazing things about our experience at this venue and with the La Joya Dulce staff. The location, gorgeous property, various venue options, organization, and impeccable service was absolutely above and beyond what we could have envisioned for our wedding day. From the beginning, we knew this was our spot after touring the gorgeous outdoor ceremony site and stunning indoor barn facilities. A huge benefit to us was having the entire property for 3 days. YES! It's unbelievable that you pay a very affordable amount for the entire weekend! This allowed us to host multiple day events, including our rehearsal, set-up at leisure, and breakdown the day after our wedding. We also loved having the option to get ready onsite in beautiful, spacious, and of course separate areas. The venue offers not only multiple areas to host your events, but includes various and normally very costly event rentals such as tables, chairs, linens, bar tops, games, lots of wedding decor, and a very fancy trailer bathroom. At first, I was worried about planning a destination wedding in the mountains while we live far away but Kathie and Mandy were amazingly well-organized and helpful. I greatly appreciated their recommendations for local vendors and willingness to work with all of our preferred vendors and day-of coordinator. We took on planning most of our wedding, and I could not have done it without Kathie’s ongoing advice, problem-solving approach, and sanity check-ins (“what’s the weather like today and how many leaves are left on the aspens?!?!). Kathie and her team did everything possible to make our day special, carefree, and enjoyable for our guests. We received so many compliments on our wedding day, and cannot thank La Joya Dulce enough for everything. In working with this venue, I learned that working with a venue is more than just a place to host your event, it’s all about the people you get to work with (for months…) and the staff at La Joya is as good as they come. BOOK THIS VENUE NOW, you will get to have a supportive extended family to help plan your wedding from afar, an amazing place to host your guests, and the opportunity to enjoy every second of your special day.Sent on 11/26/2019

The scenery at this venue is stunning! The owners and staff are professional, helpful, and made the entire experience so amazing! We had use of the property for three days and never felt rushed. They have a day of coordinator who was amazing to work with and made the entire wedding day go off without any issues! Would highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a dream wedding!Sent on 08/16/2019
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Families like the Krantz' make it super easy to do our job. We so enjoyed your entire family! Thank you for the kind words and hope you will come visit us soon.

La Joya Dulce provided the perfect wedding experience! From our tour to the wedding, we were blessed to work with such amazing people. The planning process was stress free and simplified thanks to Kathie and Mandy. Both Kathie and Mandy helped provide ideas and suggestions that captured our vision of the perfect day. No matter how small the question or concern, they were there to help along the way!Sent on 08/07/2019
The entire staff is extremely professional! Our guests could not stop complimenting them throughout our wedding. Not only do they make sure the day runs smoothly and on time, but they are so personal and friendly! We left our wedding feeling like we have gained a friendship with the staff!
The venue is immaculate! The beauty of the location speaks for itself, but the facilities are the same way! The ceremony site was gorgeous and flowed easily into the barn and arena. The bathroom trailer was a luxury for guests! With so many options for set up, there isn’t a wrong choice. Although we were lucky to have great weather, it was comforting knowing we had a back up plan.
The ability to utilize items from the “Share the Love” inventory was great! Not only did the items help with decorating, but it also saved us time and money. We never had to worry about working with multiple vendors since the ranch offers so many things!
We truly cannot say enough positive things about La Joya Dulce! We absolutely recommend the ranch to anyone! Our experience was unforgettable and we know yours will be too!

Breathtaking scenery, amazing staff
My husband and I live in Texas, so we booked our venue sight unseen and just based on the pictures of the beautiful scenery and the owner, Kathie being very responsive and super friendly! When we finally made it out to the venue, the pictures didn't do it justice! The mountain views and the aspens were beautiful, and our wedding day was perfect thanks to the amazing staff! So many great memories we will remember forever!Sent on 10/28/2019
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:If there was ever the "easy" button to hit on a wedding - yours would be it. You struck a chord with us by selecting the ranch "sight unseen," and every interaction just showed us how gracious you and Erik are. Please, please, please come back and visit! - Kathie

Wedding we never knew we dreamed of
We were lucky enough to find La Joya Dulce on the Knot and were fortunate to grab their last available date in 2018. We planned our wedding in less than 6 months and the team at La Joya Dulce was incredibly flexible, helpful and instrumental in creating our perfect wedding. We didn't have a lot of specific ideas in mind in the beginning, but we were able to work with Mandy and Kathy to make our wedding exactly what we wanted. They were very helpful with coordinating with vendors and making sure every detail was perfect. We found our caterer and photographer through their recommendations and both were excellent! We were lucky to have great weather for the ceremony, outdoor cocktail hour and have the dance floor under the stars. It really was a dream! We were even able to include our dog in our ceremony and reception! The venue is so beautiful and it was so much fun to see our guests reaction to the site. One said "you guys are getting married in heaven" and it really was! The day flew by and the timing was flawless thanks to all of the help from La Joya Dulce making sure that we took the time to create flexible timelines and think of each detail in advance. Our wedding day was truly unforgettable and we could not have done it without Mandy, Kathy and Wayne and the beautiful La Joya Dulce.Sent on 12/21/2018

Stunning ranch with views and excellent customer service!
Kathie and Wayne and their team were spectacular to work with. They went above and beyond to help us create a warm, elegant, and professional-grade event. They have a stunning property from a classic barn welcome and a large indoor arena, to an outdoor setting with brilliant views of the surrounding mountains and valley. I look forward to working with them again in the future!Sent on 12/07/2018
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you, Sylvie! We look forward to our next, bigger and even better Steamboat Springs Art Council soiree!

Best Wedding Venue!!
Kathie, Mandy and everyone at La Joya Dulce gave us the best experience I could imagine. I always heard from other brides that there will be things that go wrong on your wedding day, but you just have to go with it. On our wedding day, everything was absolutely perfect. I met with Mandy and Kathie about 3 weeks ahead of time to go through everything in person (after many communications via text and email). On the day of the wedding, I was busy getting ready so I was so incredibly surprised that EVERYTHING was how I envisioned it. From where to place things, wording on signs, decor, it was all perfect. It shocked me that they could take my vision and completely transform it into reality. They really were the BEST and I can't recommend them enough! Plus, my husband got to ride into our ceremony on a horse, so he will never forget the experience! After the wedding, we both couldn't stop talking about how great Kathie and Mandy were and how they really made the day perfect. Since our wedding, we have had so many friends come up to us to tell us the wedding was one of the best they've ever been to based on the views, the space, and the flow of the evening. So, in short, if you're on the fence, don't question it- they will make everything you plan come to life! Thank you Kathie and Mandy!!!Sent on 12/04/2018
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you so much, Shelby & Michael. We loved hosting your wedding! Thanks for "sharing the love" at La Joya Dulce.
Kristen · Married on 08/18/2018
We are so excited to be the first local couple here! Kathie and Wayne are so accommodating. Kathie has amazing ideas and vision, and she is assisting us in creating our dream wedding! The views are spectacular. They don't limit who supplies food and beverage, and unlike so many of the other places we visited, they include sooo much in their package that we would have to rent anyway.Sent on 10/20/2017
We can't think of anywhere more spectacular to host our day. La Joya Dulce is an amazing venue!
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:We absolutely love you two, and can't wait to be a part of your day! So happy to provide the space for your food trucks and your creativity. You are an absolute pleasure to work with!
Jaclyn · Married on 08/04/2018
I got married here in August of 2018. It was wonderful! We were very pleased with the staff/owners and their willingness to help make our day special. They knew all the right questions to ask, had many of the items we needed so we didn't have to rent, and were easy to get along with.Sent on 08/20/2018
Our day went very smooth. In addition to the staff being so great the view and property are as well. I have many friends that see pictures and are wowed by the beautiful site. We had the ceremony out right at the edge of a little hill that looked down on the valley. Then we had the reception dinner in the barn. It was perfect! It was beautiful inside and had plenty of room for the bar, catering, cake and guests. Then we moved the party over to their horse arena where they had games and a dance floor set up. There was plenty of room for everyone to dance and enjoy the evening.
I loved that we had access to the site the day before the wedding, Friday, to set up and get everything how we wanted it so we didn't have to worry about that on the day-of. Then we had the site the day after the wedding as well so that when we were done partying we could leave and get some sleep. It was nice to not worry about the set-up or tear-down on the day of!
The staff are so friendly and really know what they are doing when it comes to making someone's day special! I would get married here again in a heartbeat!
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you, Jackie, for your kind words. Not only were you a gorgeous bride, you were so easy to work with - it made our jobs literally a "piece of cake."
Sarah · Married on 01/20/2018
Last minute and Kathie & crew couldn't be more accommodating. We visited, fell in love, and have been organizing our winter wedding. Tips for local vendors, decorating ideas, everything. And any question we've had has been answered completely and quickly. Can't wait for our wedding at the ranch!Sent on 10/01/2017
La Joya Dulce Weddings & Events's reply:We are thrilled you chose us to host your winter wedding! The snow will be a perfect backdrop for you, and we love your signature drink! Thank you for including us in your memories.
