This place makes the planning of the wedding less daunting. I highly suggest their vendor package. They know their vendors, and who will give you the best outcome. We went through the math, and the package is extremely competitive with choosing individual vendors on your own. But you save time by not having to interview multiple vendors. We didn't have a single vendor that wasn't outstanding. The pricing with the vendors works in a way that you don't have to think about money when meeting with your vendors. For example, the amount you paid the florist won't change with the type of flower you choose. It's wonderful not to have to fret over $10 here or $10 over there.
I cannot rave enough about the event coordinators they have there. They love their jobs. It is SO much fun to plan your wedding at Lionsgate. They have a room where you can design what your tables will look like. They have every table cloth color you could possibly think of and elements of centerpieces that are included in the venue price. Picking out invitations was a lot of fun too! They have binders and binders of them. You send your pictures and they take care of the rest. My wedding coordinator was Lisa Brown. Don't underestimate how important it is for the flow of your wedding to have somebody who is not on your guest list behind the scenes making sure everything is on schedule and everybody is where they need to be. Trust me. You absolutely will NOT have time to do this yourself. Lisa was incredible. She wrangled family for photographers, ran the music for the ceremony, organized the ceremony, helped the reception run smoothly and had wonderful guiding thoughts and information during the planning process. She really made our wedding exceptional.

Lionsgate is a place that will allow you to plan a brilliantly custom and unique wedding without spending a fortune or ages planning. I cannot recommend them enough.

The Gatehouse is beautiful and has many places for picture opportunities! We hired waitstaff but went with our own vendors for catering/DJ etc (helped save money and glad they let you do this!) and waitstaff the day of was amazing and attentive to us and our guests. We did do a bridal show here too and got great ideas and vendor options to look through. Love how they have linens and centerpiece items for us to use and we saved a lot by using their vases and candleholders.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to get married! We did the vendor package at the Gatehouse which made absolutely everything about planning a wedding so easy and convenient! We worked with both Paige and Lisa and had a fantastic time planning the wedding and then at the actual wedding! The pictures also turned out great! The Gatehouse offers a ton of great spaces perfect for photos! I would recommend getting married here to absolutely everyone who is looking!

We had our ceremony at the Dove House and the space was beautiful. Working with Amy from Lionsgate was a great experience.Amy was very accomdating and answered our every question. She was willing to do whatever we needed to make sure our day went smoothly and that our day was all that we could have ever wanted and dreamed!

Even though Lionsgate is near a major road you would never know once you are on the grounds. The space is beautiful and is the perfect outdoor wedding space.

Our wedding was all that we could have dreamed and more! Everything ran smoothly and Amy made sure that everything was perfect and ready to go. Our wedding experience with Lionsgate was wonderful!

Our daughter and new son-in-law were recently married in Louisville Colorado. We are extremely grateful to the Gate House and for everything they did to make the wedding exceed our daughter’s dreams and our expectations.
It was a huge event with 600 guests. Our church could only hold 300, so we hosted two receptions on adjacent evenings. This was our first experience planning a wedding and as the mother of the bride, I did not even know where to start. Lisa Brown, our Consultant at the Gate House, is an absolute expert at navigating jittery parents through their first wedding experience.
Lisa was key to making everything run smoothly and she was very helpful when it came to controlling the costs. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable about vendors and her recommendations were spot-on. She was not only able to anticipate things that I would have never thought of, but she was extremely creative, professional, customer service oriented, and cost conscious.
The Gate House was absolutely beautiful for both receptions. Their entire staff when “above and beyond” to deliver the perfect wedding for our very special bride and groom. We cannot thank the Gate House and Lisa Brown enough for the wonderful wedding they made possible for our family.

We got married at the Gatehouse and it could not have been more perfect. Marie and her staff at Lionsgate are very good at what they do. The best part about this venue is that it can be all inclusive through them or you can piece it together yourself. Read: bring in your own food and alcohol and save a TON of money. The place is beautiful and really requires little decoration. Their wedding planning services were also super helpful. If I had a question all I had to do was email and I had a response within an hour or two. I was never told I couldn't do anything. They were willing to work with all of my ideas no matter how crazy and gave suggestions of what they thought would and wouldn't work. I could not have been happier with our big day and couldn't imagine it having taken place anywhere else.
