If you want an outdoor garden wedding with a hint of being in the mountains, the Mount Vernon Event Center is a smart choice. There is so much value for the money. You not only have a beautiful garden with gazebo, fountains, ponds, and all the flowers you could possible want, but the indoor reception hall is large enough for dining and dancing with a beautiful picture window showing off the trees and mountains. Their catering staff is out of this world. No matter what choice is made on the menu, you cannot go wrong; the food is delicious.

Jean Lyman is one of the best wedding coordinators. She can be emailed or called at any time and is always willing to help out and answer any questions. We found her to be very knowledgeable and professional.She made my daughter's wedding so stress-free as she handled every detail and met my daughters every need. And she is such a delight to work with, with no disappointments.

We had our daughter's wedding here and due to all of Jean's help and knowledge, we had very few problems. She has so much information there didn't seem to be a question that she could not answer and she answered promptly either by email or phone. She recommended vendors for everything and provided phone numbers for all. The venue was beautiful and we were lucky to have perfect weather which also meant the flowers were beautiful. Food was great except they ran out of some and had to refill. We felt that it was reasonably priced for the great value we received. The biggest problem we had was that even though we were told that both Mt Vernon and the DJ had miss and the best would be used, the mic did not work during the ceremony and no one could here what was being said.

The Mount Vernon Event Center created the most beautiful wedding for my husband and I. From the beautiful garden and landscaping to the AWESOME food, service, bar and of course Jean, the best wedding coordinator ever. I cannot imagine a better place I would reccommend to anyone for the wedding day of their dreams.

Every single thing was taken care of, I felt that all we had to do was show up and everything was in order. The communication the event center had with our other vendors was also so helpful and gave us great piece of mind.

The Mount Vernon Event Center surpassed all of my expectations and we have heard from all family members and friends how it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to, and I owe so much of that to Mount Vernon Event Center!

A great thing about Mount Vernon Event Center is they handle MANY of the wedding details!! Food, linens, alcohol, seating, decorating, etc.
1) Food was DECENT. The carved roast beef was excellent. So was the house summer salad and sticky buns. The chicken entrees were lacking; we sampled the chicken Marsala and it reminded me of cafeteria food, we had the chicken florentine at the wedding and it was all right but not spectacular. The roasted potato medley was not great either, there was some purple stuff in it, that I had no clue what it was.
2) It was AWESOME that the venue handled all of the linens, centerpieces (I just brought the candles, and they set everything up), set out the favors, decorated the cake table, etc.
3) The backyard/gazebo was GORGEOUS!!! The flowers and birds and pond were just breathtaking, it was the most beautiful setting for our wedding!
4) Be SURE to read the rules/regulations carefully; no fake petals, no petals other than white, no bubbles, etc.

For the most part we were very happy about choosing Mt Vernon Event Center for our wedding reception venue. It is a very pretty facility & our guests really enjoyed the back garden area. There were a few things that my husband and I were disappointed in, however:

1) our table linens were extremely wrinkly & by the time we realized, it was too late

2) we ordered a cheese sauce for the steam vegetables & I guess they were not satisfied with the way it came out. Instead of remaking it, they brought our head table cookies as an apology. Not a huge deal but the veggies were bland without it & I had put it on our menu cards!

3) We bought a great deal of alcohol for our reception & were under the impression that that would be all that was available to our guests. The day of, we realize Mt Vernon had ALL of their alcohol available for purchase. We didn't want our guests to have to pay for ANYTHING! They did list the items we had purchased as "hosted", but if they were also going to sell their own stuff, they should have told us ahead of time!!

4) At our final walk through we had indicated that the top tier of our cake would only be cut if needed. Mt Vernon didn't follow this! The top tier was completely gone & we didn't get to have any of it! It was not necessary to cut the top tier because there was tons & tons of the bottom & middle tiers left. We were a bit disappointed in this.

5) Mt Vernon needs to work on their communication a bit! Every time we called, we had to leave a voicemail. Also, everytime we emailed it took several days to hear back from them.

Despite these things, we did have a very nice wedding reception! I love the bar, outdoor fireplace, large window, fish tanks & water features @ Mt Vernon. The food we selected was also very good & very reasonably priced. I also appreciated them allowing us to "bend" a few of their rules so that we could have the wedding we envisioned!! I would recommend MVEC to other couples, but just ask a lot of questions & be prepared for little things to arise.

In addition to being a wonderful venue, they also provide the catering. We went to a tasting every month to pick out our menu. We received nothing but rave reviews from our guests for not only the food, but for the staff and the venue all around. With the addition of a new event coordinator, they have become more detail oriented which brought the responsiveness rating back up to a 4.5.

The place was beautiful. THe food is still be raved about (4 months later). THe staff was so accommodating and alerted us to potential problems so we could avoid those pitfalls.The bridal changing room was perfect and the staff even did the added touch of fruit and crackers to stave off hunger. Great dance floor. Beautiful setting. Did I mention the food, enough? It was tremendous, with lots of choices and reasonably priced. YES YES YES

This place is a wonderful venue, they did a wonderful job on our reception. Included is the catering, the decor, centerpieces, and almost everything. The only problem we encountered is they don't tell you about the staffing charges ($700-1000)until your final walk through but we lucked out because we wanted to pay our final amount early. If we had found out about this three weeks before the wedding we would have had money issues......so be sure to ask!!!!

Amazing views and remarkable gardens! It was exactly what we had in mind when we first started planning our wedding. It’s clean, classy and a well-kept facility. We had the ceremony in the stunning gardens and then moved into the event center for the reception. The food was amazing and I have received numerous comments about the food. BUT here is why they received 4 stars rather than five in the Responsiveness category - their communication skills truly need to improve tremendously. There were too many times that a phone call or email weren’t ever returned. The only way that I would get my question answered would be on the off chance that I called and got a hold of someone. MVEC allows you to bring your own alcohol which saved us a ton of money. Also - our photographer was allowed to use the scissor lift for an amazing group shoot which included every guest in the ceremony/garden area which turned out so much better than it would have if he would have climbed up a ladder.

A view of the facility, from the outside, might make one weary of choosing Mt. Vernon Event Center. It looks small, and while certainly well taken care of, not necessarily a place you might expect a wedding to take place. Take a look inside, however, and you will be singing a different tune! Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, it has a view to die for! And the facility itself accomodates a large of number guests, for both the ceremony and reception. Even for a small wedding, the staff has great ideas for set up that make it cozy and intimate. They also have a beautiful garden and gazebo outdoors where the weddings can be held (although don't count on that in February!) My wedding was in February, but the staff was flexible enough to keep the outdoor-option open until the very day of the wedding (of course it was inside though:). This was the first place I checked out, and after checking many, many others, I still chose to go with Mount Vernon. And it was well worth it. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend you check out Mt. Vernon Event Center, even if you don't live in Colorado!
