WOW!! My husband and I recently got married at the Carriage House at Ellis Ranch. Our main goal for the weekend was to have a fun and stress-free weekend and the staff at Ellis Ranch helped make that possible! Their incredible list of vendors helped us choose amazing people who truly cared about making our day memorable. Shawn and Kim were always available for questions and there if we needed any suggestions. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and your guests will be blown away!

I couldn't get over what amazing comments our guests made about the venue! We still have people telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! This would not have been possible without the incredible beauty and people at Ellis Ranch!

I can not say enough words to describe the wonderful experience that we had with Ellis Ranch. The venue is beautiful! We had our service at the Carriage House and then the reception up on the deck.

Shawn and the staff at Ellis Ranch helped to make our daughter’s wedding of her dreams come true. We had so many people say great things about this venue during the wedding and reception. We appreciated the fact that this incredibly beautiful wedding venue did not “break the bank” so to speak and that we were able to incorporate every detail that was important to us. We especially were grateful for the ability to host the wedding rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner there as well. There is no other venue that we could gather 40 people in an intimate and beautiful setting at such a great value and price. Please enjoy our short 2 ½ minute video of some of the highlights of our special day. http://animoto.com/play/fHnfuNqUwTMgd3Nu7JtI6Q

My daughter got married at Ellis Ranch in May 2014. From the first visit we knew that it was a good match. Driving up the location was beautiful. Shawn and Kim were so easy to talk to, knowledgeable, helpful and the venue was reasonably priced. They could accommodate our large wedding. If the weather was bad, we could move the wedding indoors with no problem. They had a list of suggested vendors which we could choose, or go with our own. We went with the DJ, caterer and cake vendors off their suggested list and had a great experience with all of them. When we were setting up both Shawn and Kim were available, walking around making sure everything was OK. Shawn was there all night in case we needed anything - which we didn’t because they had prepared us for everything and were experts in what they do. All of our guests had a great time and we received several comments on what a wonderful location and such a fun wedding. We feel like we got to know the owners personally and left feeling like they are our friends. I would recommend Ellis Ranch to anyone.

Shawn and Kim Ellis and the entire staff at Ellis Ranch are amazing people and a fantastic crew to work with! After I had problems with a previous vendor that didn't work out. Ellis Ranch took us in and made out Wedding the most amazing and fantastic day that I could have ever imagined. Shawn even let me do my final wedding walk through the day his wife went into labor (they were communication issues) Their venue fit my country wedding theme so perfectly. I would defiantly recommend this venue to any of my friends getting married. My family loved the venue and said that it was perfect for our wedding.

Our daughter was married at Ellis Ranch on July 4, 2013. It was beautiful, perfect, and FUN due to Shawn and Kim Ellis whose knowledge and connections made the event a day to remember. We had two months to plan the wedding. With Kim and Shawn's help and guidance, there was not one glitch to the day. The Ellis's were able to give us recommendations for D.J.'s, food vendors, photographers, motels and more - eliminating guess work and time consuming searching.

The wedding was at the Carriage House. We were near capacity but had plenty of room. Kim and Shawn took care of the decorating and could not have been happier with the results! We have just received the photos from the photographer. The pictures capture not only our daughter's memorable day but the awesome venue Ellis Ranch offers. Thank you Shawn and Kim!

We have just received the photos from the photographer. The pictures capture not only our daughter's memorable day but the awesome venue Ellis Ranch offers. Thank you Shawn and Kim! Read less

I have been to the Ranch several times. Weddings and Fundraisers - every time the Ellis' were very friendly, professional, and did what they said they were going to do. We were very blessed to have a fundraiser called ADORED out there. Anytime I needed something they were there to help direct and guide me! They were great at explaining the contract so that there were no surprises and thought they did a very thorough job through out the 9 months of working closely with them. I would hands down recommend them! If you are looking BEAUTY-RESPECT-INTERGRITY- HONESTY then you will find it at Ellis Ranch!

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day. The wedding was outdoors, about 75 degrees, the guests were in the shade, the venue was stunning with the surrounding mountains, everyone LOVED the carriage! The people were friendly and helpful.

My husband and I looked into about 10 different venues to have our wedding at, and as soon as we saw Ellis Ranch we knew that it was the one. The location is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the price is reasonable. Our wedding day went perfect. Shawn was very helpful and was there if we needed anything throughout the entire day. All of our guests were so impressed with the carriage ride. I would reccomend Ellis Ranch to anyone!

We had our wedding at the event center and it was beautiful! I checked around to many many other venues and Ellis Ranch was the obvious choice. The scenery is beautiful, it included many thing that you would normally have to rent which was a great savings, the people are so nice and willing to help you with anything and they are always available to. They were very accomodating when we want to bring family members there to show them the place before we got married. Overall, we def made the right choice and wouldn't have changed anything. Thank you so much Shawn and Kim for making our day the best day of our lives:)

They take the extra time to meet with you as many times as you would like to make sure you are ready and comfortable for your big day! Shawn and Kim Ellis were always professional and quick in responding to any questions I had about the Ranch Rules and Regulations. If you want a "WOW" factor, be sure to spend the money on the beautiful horse and carriage!!! It was wonderful to hear how it awed all of my guests!!! I cannot thank Ellis Ranch enough for providing an affordable and beautiful venue for my big day!!!!

My wedding was at the Carriage House at Ellis Ranch. I worked with Shawn and he made my day run smoothly and effortlessly. He was flexible about scheduling appointments which was a big deal for me because I live in Phoenix, so I could only have my appointments when I was visiting. He was fun to work with and the day of he was exactly where he said he'd be and helped in any way that was needed. He ran the bar and made it an enjoyable night and I wish I could have my wedding there again! Ellis Ranch is a beautiful venue, especially when it starts to get dark and the lights over the deck come on.

One thing that really helped was the price and that many things were included. We decided to have our wedding on a Friday which made it cheaper and the DJ was included. The tables and chairs are included and they switched their linen company so it was a little pricier but they were floor-length and looked amazing. Overall, we were so pleased with having our wedding there! Thank you, Shawn and Ellis Ranch! Alyssa and Jared

Even when it started to rain Shawn let us know everything would be taken care of and it was. The carriage was a perfect touch to our wedding, it was the wow factor we were looking for. If you or know anyone looking for a beautiful location with a wonderful staff Ellis Ranch is a perfect match.

As my husband and I searched for places to have our wedding nothing stood out and it was hard to find a nice place that had something speical to offer on a budget! We came acrossed Ellis Ranch and from the minute we saw the carriage house and the event center we were both taken in aww!!! We loved having so many opitions and great staff to plan a fantastic country wedding that i have always dreamed of. The something special at Ellis is the horse carriage ride and trust me, it is priceless!!!!!! During our respection I had many guests come to me and say that they have never seen something so breathe taking and unique at a wedding and it was hard to hold back happy tears!! Ellis Ranch should be at the top of your list to consider for a wedding or any event! Its on my list for my 50th anniversary party!! ;)

Ellis Ranch was the perfect location for our wedding and I can not say enough wonderful things about Shawn, Kim and the ranch staff. The facility is affordable and so flexible to express your own personal style. Since there is only one wedding in the event center per day it was a great feeling to have all the attention on you and not be distracted by any other brides. Shawn and Kim were great during the planning process and were there to help with any issues or questions on the day of our event. I would recommend the ranch to any bride.

The Carriage House at The Ellis Ranch Wedding Park was the most beautiful and amazing venue I could of asked for. My fiance and I had been to 3 weddings together at there larger facility so it was destiny. When he asked me to marry him there was no questioning where we were gonna get married. When I had contacted Ellis Ranch we were the first to book out for the 2010 wedding season for the carriage house. I had almost 2 years to start planning. I had contacted Ellis Ranch several times in those two years and they were always so friendly, easy to talk to and eager to answer all my questions that I had. On the day of the wedding I was stress free and the day went absolutly perfect. Thanks Ellis family for making my special day amazing.

Shawn was an absolute pleasure to work with EVERY step of the way. He's the reason we chose Ellis Ranch for the beginning of our marriage. Planning a wedding can be stressful and the Ellis Ranch staff made it easy for us, especially Shawn. When my family came to see the venue ahead of time, they left saying, "What a nice guy." The quality of service and value of cost were hands down better than any venue in the area. Shawn and Kim also made our wedding day awesome when they bartended. They were like one of the family - we loved it!

Ellis Ranch Event and Wedding Center provided the perfect place for a romantic and intimate wedding and reception. They offer plenty of help for you to plan your wedding and reception and offer specials from their preferred vendors which helps to save some money (as we all know, weddings are not cheap). The host(s) were very helpful in making sure that the wedding day went smoothly and were very friendly. It was great to have such a huge and beautiful background to take photos in and the center was able to hold all our guests, plus some. There is a great bridal suite for both of their venues which makes the day less stressful since you can just have your hair and makeup people show up at the ranch and you don't have to be running around all day trying to get things done while hoping that your decorations and set up are done correctly. Shawn and staff ensured that the bride and groom didn't see each other while the pre-photos were being taken and during the pre-ceremony proceedings as well as ensured that during the day everything was going according to our expectations. I would recomment this place to anyone who is looking to have a romantic wedding in a great outdoor setting. The horse drawn carriage is just an extra added bonus and makes any girl feel like a princess on their big day.

The location of Ellis Ranch is beautiful! It was picture perfect. I came in on a horse and carriage and all my guests were in awe. I received tons of compliments on the location and how beautiful everything was. They were very flexable with my timeline and my guests.
All around I was very pleased with Ellis Ranch staff and most of their preferred vendors. They love what they do and it shows!
Thank you Shawn and Kim for a flawless day!

My wife and I just completed our wedding on September 23rd, 2011 at the Ellis Ranch and couldn't have been more happy. Shawn and Kim are fantastic to work with and helped to make our day run smoothly as possible. Even on the day of the event they coordinated the ceremony (along with the DJ) to make everything simply awe inspiring. Shawn also came up during the reception to make sure that everything was going all right.

A big piece of advice - choose your caterers, minister (if possible), photography, and floral from Shawn's preferred vendor list. Not only do these vendors do an amazing job, they know the venue and they know how to run an event there. Our Caterer (Michael's Plum), or Photographer (Kimbal Nelsen), and our Minister (Rev Kent) all did a fantastic job.

Shawn and Kim - Thank you for everything!!!

I am so glad that we went with Ellis Ranch for our wedding venue. Not only was the scenery gorgeous, but the owners were fantastic. One of the owners was our security guard for the evening and he made everything go flawlessly! We did not have to worry about anything because he was helping to make sure everything went smoothly. Also, the pictures from the ranch have turned out perfectly because of how gorgeous everything is there. Thank you Ellis for making our special day so memorable!!

Ellis Ranch made our wedding perfect! We didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Everything ran so smoothly and it is such a beautiful venue. Shawn was kind of abrupt at our walk-through and he made me stress a little with everything he was telling us at once. However, at our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day, Mike was the one who was there to help (Shawn and Kim were away that weekend) and he was great! He was so accomodating and relaxed I never thought that anything would go wrong. The only negative thing was that he kept coming up to me during the reception to ask questions. I wish he would have gone to my mom since she knew more of what was going on while I was talking to our guests. But I know he just wanted to make sure the bride was happy! We got married at the event center but we also had our rehearsal dinner at the carriage house. Which worked out so well because they offer great rehearsal dinner packages! I would recommend this place to anyone! You won't be disappointed!

I really enjoyed this venue, we were allowed to bring our own food and alcohol of our choice. We had an area to get ready that had a full kitchen for snack foods and was air conditioned. The owners were nice and generally responded quickly to inquires. I also enjoyed the horse and carriage ride for going down the aisle.
A few issues, you can only do the rehearsal on Wednesdays, our wedding was Sunday leaving time for people to forget. Also, you only get a coordinator if you do the horse and carriage and then you only get them the day of, so the rehearsal didn't really help us since they weren't there.

Love the venue, but the bridal suite as they call it has it's downfall. The outside of the building is nice, but inside is dated and kind of dumpy. The bride has her photos taken inside getting ready, what a disappointment with the decor. A bridal suite should be elegant and make the bride feel like a princess and special :(

Ellis Ranch was a beautiful venue! We were told that 150 guests could fit of the deck of the Carriage House, but I was pretty disappointed when it came down to it. Some of the tables were inside of the doors where the buffet tables were supposed to go, and we were forced to have a sweetheart table, which we wanted a long table for our whole wedding party to fit at. Also, when we got to the venue (the wedding party and all) the bridal sweet and the grooms sweet was extremely hot inside! I felt that the venue personal should have turned that on for us in the morning. We were all so uncomfortable getting ready, until right before the ceremony the AC finally cooled the place down. The ceremony was beautiful and all my guests thought it was beautiful! During the reception Shawn did not seem the most friendly at all. I understand that they do many weddings a year, but this was my special day. He specifically asked for a name of a person during the final walk through to be the "go to" person. I gave him the name of the grooms father, and even had the grooms father introduce himself (which he did). Shawn still came to me, the bride, asking if we wanted to rent the place longer because it was getting close to the time we rented it till, told me we were running out of things like liquor and mixers. I just felt these questions could have been asked to anyone but the bride. He also was very rude while asking these things to me like I was putting him out of his way by having my wedding there. The other bartender was fantastic and Kim was great while we were cleaning up and all. The day was fantastic I just wished Shawn could have asked questions to other people and not been so rude.

Ellis Ranch Wedding Park responded with the following comments:

When it comes to the Carriage House, our maximum guest count is 150. When you max. out the capacity, there is no room to have the big head table and we do what we can to accommodate your needs. With the Bridal/Groom's suite AC, we were having some problems with it and we had been working on it. We are sorry that it was uncomfortable for you and your wedding party. Depending on the circumstances, we always make a decision on who we should go to for questions at that time, depending on what we need. We are sorry that we went to you rather than your dad, we were wanting to make sure that you were in the loop as far as the night was going. I am sorry that I was rude to you, that is not my intentions and was not intended to be towards you. My goal is to make this your special day and I am sorry that I came across differently.

Ellis Ranch is a great venue if you're looking for either an outdoor or a less formal atmosphere. A super-formal, elegant wedding and reception might not fit here. We used the Carriage House, since we had a smaller reception (less than 150 guests). The biggest drawback is that there is no kitchen for a caterer. A caterer must bring everything completely cooked and ready-to-eat. There is also no clean-up of dishes and food containers on-site, since the ranch is on a septic system. For the lack of kitchen facilities, the cost seems a little high--but at the time, there was a linen bundling package, which helped to get more value for the cost. The rest of the facilities, however, are great. The views are fabulous, and it's a beautiful place. Also, Shawn and Kim are extremely responsive and try to help in every way possible. There are no hidden fees, which we ran into with other vendors. Shawn and Kim gave lots of advice to try and help us save money. They are also not pushy. Very easy to work with.

My first impression when I went out to see Ellis Ranch was awful they wanted me to go in and sign the paperwork and didn't even take me around and show me the place. When I asked to do so they seemed put out. Everything worked out very nicely with all my vendors finding the right place, however, DONT LET SHAUN BE IN CHARGE OF YOUR SIGNS! He said that he usually makes them but it looked like a third graders hand writing on posterboard. Make your own signs and bring them in. Also, the signs were hard to follow, make sure that you make it easy for your guests to get there.

They definately overcharged us for the rehearsal dinner for what was provided. I actually didn't get any food, I waited to go last so all my guests could get some but then Shaun and his family went through and ate the food that I paid for also! They kicked us out quickly even though we paid to have it longer. He was really rude at the bar to some of my guests.

Day of, the decorations that I had ordered were the wrong color and I used one of their preferred vendors. No one was around the whole day until about 2:00. Everything went smooth due to good planning, but my husband was very disappointed when they took us off in the horse carriage and pulled us out into a field full of horse poop to take pictures.

Throughout the night, Shaun was bugging me for everything and ended up serving the 2 bottles of wine that we had brought for the toast and as a gift to my grandparents so they did not get their gift. He closed the bar down really early for no reason. Once we left, he wouldn't give the alcohol back to us and my family basically had to fight him for it. He tried to take all he could, he kept the mixers in his house so we couldn't get those and kept all of our left over cups. They took some of our food to keep for themselves for later and rushed my mom in her clean up afterwords.

Overall, they were rude and not the best people to work with. They overcharge for what little service they provide. The venue is nice and we had a good wedding but the people were not great to work with.

The venue was nice but Shawn is horrible to work with! He is super strict and rather rude. I have several people complain to me about how rude the bartender was (which was Shawn) he also wouldn't let me have one glass that had glitter on it because of an absolutely NO glitter rule... It was literally ONE cup. He also did not tell anyone he was owner so everyone tipped him even though you don't tip proprietor. The venue was set up nicely but I hated dealing with Shawn. He isn't a friendly person and it's uncomfortable being around him. It was nice to have venue all day but they really need to hire someone who is better with people to do all of the conversationally parts. He also left bar early so then we had to make our own drinks even though my dad tipped him several hundred dollars!

Ellis Ranch Wedding Park responded with the following comments:

Cassy, when it comes to the cup of glitter, we do go over that at the contract signing and the final walk-through that there is no glitter allowed, under any circumstance. It makes too much of a mess and is too hard to clean up since it sticks to everything. On the tipping, I go over having a tip jar at the bar during your final walk-through. You could have said that you didn't want one at that point. Confused about leaving the bar early, since I was the only bartender, the bartender has to stay until everyone is gone at the end of the night and checks with everyone when they are leaving. The only time a bartender leaves the bar is to go check on things outside, go to the restroom, check in with Bride/Groom or family and vendors. I am very sorry that I came off as rude to you or your guests, this was never my intention.

In the beginning Shawn was really great and nice as could be and really helpful. Once it came down to the walkthrough it was a whole different side. I realize that he has a lot of weddings a year and all that. The comment that were made towards my mother were uncalled for and were rude. He kept telling us how he was cutting us a deal and how we need to do this and that and just going on and on. I get that we got a "DEAL" but we were doing everything that we could to follow by his rules and to make sure everything went as planned. On the wedding day we came in did what we needed to do and was hurried through the entire day. Shawn had came in the dressing room and yelled saying we needed to get out there and do something with the guests because they were not listening. All they were doing is standing outside. No big deal in my mind. I sent somebody out to please tell the guests to have a seat. As we are getting ready to walk out the door he came in and started yelling once again that we all needed to listen to him and get this going now! I thought this be very unprofessional and rude! We were maybe at the most runinng 5-10 min behind. He had appologized to me about the guests and I understood at the time until I found out that all they were doing was standing there. I had several people come up and ask me who Shawn was and why he was how he was rude and it was not just one occasion. Loved the venue and how beautiful it was. Just thought Shawn could have been a little nicer with things.

Hello Viewers,

My daughter was to be married at Ellis Ranch on Sept 13, 2013, Everything was going well prior to the wedding day. But because of the rains Ellis Ranch called the morning of the wedding and cancelled my daughters wedding. We immediately got on the phone to find a venue for our daughter and out of town guests. Thank God we found The Marriott in Fort Collins to accommodate us. They were amazing and gave my daughter and son in law a fantastic day.
I didn't think Ellis Ranch would turn on us the way they did. So when my daughter and son in law came back from their honeymoon, I called Ellis Ranch about reimbursing us for cancelling us on the day of the wedding. They said no. They called it an act of God.
I gave Shawn the opportunity to do the right thing. And I told him bad press is worst then the $3400 that they should have just paid back. So if you are planning on having your wedding here I recommend getting insurance.

Ellis Ranch Wedding Park responded with the following comments:

Lorriane,

We want to first let you know we are truly sorry that your daughters wedding had to be canceled, to no fault of the Ellis Ranch, Inc. But do to the flooding our area (Loveland, Colorado) we were under a mandatory evacuation by the Sheriff’s Department, no access to the ranch, no power, and no gas, no telephone except for cell, which was off and on, no Internet and no water. Our entire community and the State of Colorado have had to face a terrible event and many have lost their lives, businesses and homes.

We went over your contract with you at the time of signing, we discussed the refund and our cancellation policies. We also went over the recommendation for you to take out wedding insurance. At that time you had were in agreement and you choose to not take insurance that would have covered your investment cancelled due to the Flood.

As a venue prior to any wedding we have to spend many hours and money in preparation for a wedding. We were entirely set and ready for your daughters wedding, Linens purchased, employees paid to set up the room, wedding park mowed and chairs set along with the daily cost of doing business. Hours spent with you and your daughter before the wedding, walk thru, showings etc. prior to the wedding date. It sounds to us that you feel we should eat the entire loss.

According to the contract you were in agreement with we are under no reasonability to return your money since the cancellation was due to a National Disaster “Act of God”.

As our contract states we do not have to refund money for cancellation but will reschedule the wedding to a later date. You choose not to reschedule like other brides in Colorado did. Out of good we have offered to give more then half of the $3400 paid to us $2000, which again we are under no obligation to do but we were willing to try and work with you. Now you have even started a dispute with your credit card in the amount of $1600.00.

I was supposed to have my wedding at your Ranch on July 24, 2010. Plans changed after my dad was in a motorcycle accident June 12, 2010. In the accident he broke his neck and spine in three place rendering him a quadriplegic and he lost his wife in the accident. When myself and my wedding planner talked with you about the situation and asked I if there was any way we could cancel and get all or some of our money back ($5000). I was disgusted when your company denied both options. I have been working with Shawn since the spring of 2009 and paid in advance for my event. Even though I explained that my dad wouldn’t be able to leave the hospital on that day there for couldn’t be with me on my wedding you still denied my request. I was just shocked, I couldn’t believe that after everything that happened to my dad Ellis Ranch wouldn’t even consider giving back half the money. My family experience was a tragic accident and I felt it deserved consideration of my request especially due to the circumstances. Shawn did offer to let me have the wedding any other day for a year. Well it has been a year and my father passed away 6 months ago after only being home from Craig hospital for 3 months and I had a baby 3 months ago. I would like you to tell me when you think in this year would have been a good time to spend another large amount of money to celebrate? I just still can’t believe this company and how they treated my family. And in this year hasn’t even once tried to contact me for an update. I have reported you to the better business burro and any chance I get tell everyone about these circumstances . 9 news did a piece on my wedding at Craig hospital and I explained how awful this company treated to my family; all the other vendors for my wedding gave back the money given and completely understood the circumstances. I really hope the word gets around about your company as I would never recommend you for any event. If you have any questions please contact me at dipdvr@aol.com Sincerely, Angela Salazar Sams

Ellis Ranch Wedding Park responded with the following comments:

Angela,

Our last communication from you was on July 7, 2010 at 5:11pm and you stated the following:

"My dad was transferred here to Denver last week and has just gotten out of ICU. He is still in a multi-trauma unit and then will go to Craig hospital. I'm sorry I haven't called you but things have been happening so fast. The wedding at Ellis ranch unforunately is canceled, I'm sorry but I just can't get married without my dad. We are planning to just do a justice of the piece thing in front of my dad at the hospital and when he is done with Craig we want to have a party at Ellis Ranch to celebrate. I really appreciate your offer for holding the date...I'm just not sure at this point when the party will be so as soon as I figure it out I will let you guys know. Again I'm sorry for everything! any questions please call me."

We then called you to let you know that we were offering you up to a year to reschedule your event for no additional charge. We ended our conversation with you stating that you would let us know when you were going to reschedule. We assumed that you would have let us know if you weren't planning on rescheduling or if anything had changed in the mean time. We never stated that you couldn't get any of your money back, but it would have helped by letting us know that you were canceling all-together. We always, no matter what the case may be will try to re-book your date (if we knew you were canceling), and then you would get half of your money back that had been paid at the time of cancelation. This is stated in our contract, and by no means did we decline to give any of your money back because of your circumstances. We in fact remember your circumstances and were very willing to work with you. We even had emailed a few times to check in on you and your family after your initial contact with the Ellis Ranch regarding your circumstances. We are sorry to hear about your losses and in no way did we deny you anything you asked for. The email that you had sent on July 7th did state that you appreciated our offer to hold your date and that you were going to have your party here. From that statement, in no way did it state that you were canceling completely and wanted a refund. We took your statement in the email that you would let us know what your plans were.
