The Winding River Ranch




Brides throwing a laid back mountain wedding will find the perfect location at The Winding River Ranch. This gorgeous country haven is nestled in the breathtaking Colorado landscape, offering amazing views of expansive green fields, blue mountain ridges, and the winding Colorado river. Take a jaunt over the wooden bridge to the ranch’s private island and wed the man of your dreams beneath a quaint arbor made of branches from nearby trees. A grand Log Cathedral provides the perfect space for a rustic barn reception, especially when illuminated by delicate paper lanterns! The historic horse barn is a delightful choice for the more intimate occasion, complete with antique beams wrapped in white lights. Of course, the fun doesn’t have to end once the reception comes to a close. Retreat to your private room in one of ranch’s charming cabins and enjoy your wedding night in a delightful mountain-themed suite. When you awaken in the morning, you and your guests can take a short drive over to Rocky Mountain National Park and enjoy the natural beauty of Colorado before heading home!
