This is a spectacularly beautiful setting for a wedding! The arrangement of the venue is very conducive to a natural flow from the ceremony to cocktails to the dinner reception. Our bride was very concerned that rain might spoil the day but they had a great backup plan and it worked out beautifully! Many of our guests were from out of town and commented that they had never been to a lovelier wedding. We couldn't have been happier that we selected Spruce Mountain Ranch!

As mother of the bride, i would like to compliment Spruce Mountain for helping fulfill my daughter's dream of a fairy tale wedding. The ranch is the most beautiful setting which was complimented by all favors of weather on the wedding day. The staff was wonderful from beginning to end and we always felt we were the number one priority. Tara and the coordinators were like part of the family with all they contributed to our day. Thank you for a perfect day!

Spruce Mountain was fantastic to work with! Tara was so helpful with every aspect... giving us recommendations, answering silly questions, sharing ideas, etc. They were always very helpful and responsive and made our day more than we could have ever imagined. It was pouring rain the day of our wedding and we were able to use a larger space than we had booked without any extra cost or hassle at all. It saved our wedding and ensured our guests were comfortable. Wade was especially helpful with carting us around for pictures and making sure we had everything we needed that day. We really felt like family during our time on the ranch, not guests, and couldn't be happier with our experience.

My husband and I fell in love with this venue the moment we drove up to Spruce Mountain Ranch. Tara Ames so kindly walked us around the ranch and helped us envision exactly what our wedding could look like. Absolutely every detail is covered at this ranch, and it made for a beautiful wedding. The added bonus to this venue is the staff. We've never come across such kind people who are truly there to do whatever to make your special day unforgettable. If you're in the search for a wedding venue that has it all, visit Spruce Mountain! You won't be disappointed! All of our wedding guests are still talking about how, "Spruce Mountain was unlike any other place they've been to for a wedding."

We found Spruce Mountain after an exhaustive search for a natural setting that wasn't too far into the mountains. We had a lot of guests coming from sea level and didn't want them all to get altitude sickness. It turned out to be not only the best place locally, but of all the places we looked at it was the best. They worked with us on the date they recommended the greatest caterer and everything went so smoothly! It is a great representation of the beauty of Colorado, which was perfect for our guests who came from Australia, England, Sweden, Netherlands etc. We loved everything and although you always expect something to go wrong at a wedding, nothing did. Thanks for making everything special for my daughter's big day!

The most incredible place to get married. My day was whimsical with rustic elegance ! The staff is so easy to work with. Very attentive, especially when there was the possibility of rain on my outside wedding, everyone scrambled to make a back-up plan for inside! Thank you Spruce Mountain Ranch for giving me the perfect back drop for my special day!

Even though our day was much colder than we were hoping for, Spruce Mountain set everything up to keep us and our guests warm and comfortable. They even opened up an additional area with a fire place for our guests prior to the ceremony! We can't thank Spruce Mountain enough!

Spruce Mountain was an absolutely magical setting with lots of options, all in one place! I would definitely recommend it for couples looking for indoor/outdoor sites, places that can accommodate lots of guests (or not), and unique sites that are close to town (not as far away as the mountains). The property is already so gorgeous that there's not a lot of need for additional decor (plus!). Tara and the staff were wonderful to work with and always very responsive. Perhaps the very best part is their outdoor dance floor, covered in market lights! What a great place.

Spruce Mountain Ranch was a dream wedding venue! It is so beautiful and there are so many ceremony location options. Tara is very responsive throughout the entire planning process and was very helpful. We had a flawless event and everything was so beautiful!
We only had a couple of issues arise with the venue, both of which are not huge deals. One was they indicated there were shuttle agreements with a few hotels and when we inquired about this the hotels acted like they did not know what this was so we didn't get any shuttle use. Last, they say there are no hidden costs but you do have to outfit the ceremony location with a full PA sound system which cost $400. I think they should just add this in the venue cost instead of making you find out about it later. Those are just minor things and overall I felt so lucky to get to have our wedding at such a lovely venue! I would recommend it to anyone!

Amazing venue!!!!! We got married outside on the mountainside for our ceremony location and it was breathtaking! The venue had a great staff and was easy to work with. There were no hidden fees, everything was communicated well up front. It was a venue were we built our wedding how was wanted ..choosing a catering company, florist, ect so was a bit pricey (didnt help we had 250 people) but well worth it!!! Amazing place for a Colorado rustic wedding!! My guests are still complimenting on the scenery!

Spruce Mountain Ranch was the first venue we visited and fell in love with it immediately. We saw others JUST to make sure, but none of them compared so we stopped the search and booked the last date available in the Spring immediately! The web site does not do the venue justice, it's so much more in person! It is a gorgeous venue, landscape/setting to feel very "Colorado" without having to go all the way to the mountains and very functional and logical as well. They have thought of almost everything and are constantly adding to improve your event. They have contracts with area hotels that also provide a shuttle to and from so that your guests can enjoy their time without having the hassel of driving - a major plus for us! Tara Ames was so sweet and accommodating from the beginning. She put me at ease and made us feel like she was inviting us into her home - not as if we were just an event at a facility. They have rules to abide by, obviously, but are also flexible and reasonable with requests without reason. Keep in mind that there are some required vendors and you must bring in food/beverage. For a bride that wants f&b in house, this is not that venue. Everything still went very smoothly as there are some required vendors to use that are great and also know the venue so it is like having one in house any way. My event went off without a hitch due to great vendors that I chose and also having planning experience and a day of planner. I couldn't have asked for a better day, seriously... and I'm a tough critic!! Highly recommend Spruce Mtn Ranch for your wedding!

Spruce Mountain Ranch was the first venue we visited and fell in love with it immediately. We saw others JUST to make sure, but none of them compared so we stopped the search and booked the last date available in the Spring immediately! The web site does not do the venue justice, it's so much more in person! It is a gorgeous venue, landscape/setting to feel very "Colorado" without having to go all the way to the mountains and very functional and logical as well. They have thought of almost everything and are constantly adding to improve your event.

We feel so fortunate to have been married at Spruce Mountain Ranch. SMR is beyond gorgeous and was perfect for the Colorado-y wedding we wanted. The location is beautiful, as is the ranch itself. SMR is the first venue we looked at and we were sold. Besides the beauty of the venue, the other big selling point for us was our ability to bring in our homebrew for the reception. We were married on the mountainside and had our reception in Albert's Lodge. They have a great contingency plan in place in case of bad weather, but fortunately, we didn't have to use it. It provided us peace of mind, though, and we knew our wedding would be beautiful whether we were inside or out. Brides have a beautiful, charming house in which to get ready and grooms have a great cigar room. Tara was great to work with throughout the year and on the day of, Jen was also enthusiastic and fun to work with. We did not experience any problems throughout the year, or on the day of. I'm bummed we don't have any more occasions to celebrate at SMR. I would easily, and without hesitation, recommend getting married at Spruce Mountain Ranch!

On our wedding day, Colorado received 8" of snow. Spruce Mountain Ranch did not let that stop us from our perfect wedding day. They had been shoveling the grounds and made it ready to go when we arrived! Our day went smoothly thanks to the staff at Spruce Mountain Ranch!

We were absolutely thrilled and impressed from the moment we arrived (the first location we visited with no need to look any further due to the breathtaking atmosphere) at the Spruce Mountain property until the ending of our wedding reception. We enjoyed the fact that we would be renting the property for 10 hours and were able to get married where desired which met our ultimate standards of having the ceremony outdoors at the lakeside terrace - truly outstanding! We also enjoyed the fact that we were able to bring in our privately purchased liquor to decrease the overhead cost..... Our guests loved going to one location for our ceremony and reception that took place in the elegant/quintessential coloradoesque Albert's lodge!! The indoor/outdoor reception with beautiful lighting was stunning...... Many of our guests said that our wedding location was the most outstanding scenery they've ever seen!! Thank you for helping make our day so special with your beautiful accommodations! -Ashley & Matt :)

SMR is an absolutely GORGEOUS wedding venue. The scenery is beautiful and very natural, it is well maintained, romantic, and just what we were looking for. Our wedding guests thought it was unique and like no other wedding they have been to. The location is rural so transportation/logistics is a slight challenge, but so worth it. I would highly recommend it except for the rental price. I know they say you get what you pay for, but in my opinion the amount they charge for renting it for 10 hours is insane. BUT, if I had to do it over again I would. :)

Spruce Mountain is magical. Tara, the events coordinator, is professional, sweet and truly understands that this is a special day. SM has ridged rules, and you just need to know that going in, but as far as the day of the event, they were more than flexible. Our issue is with their mandatory use of their audio/visual equipment through a company known as Starkey - they were awful. Just be forewarned that you have to spell everything out and then on that day, make certain someone (in charge) is double-checking. They let someone other than our wedding planner tell them not to show something and therefore, it never got shown. A huge disappointment to the bride's family.

Spruce Mountain Ranch is gorgeous. The scenery is second to none and the outdoor cocktail area is perfect. The dance floor has gorgeous lighting and the wedding director Tara is a gem to work with. It comes with a hefty price tag but my husband and I agreed once we had toured Spruce that their was nowhere else we could have imagined being married. If you are lucky enough to be married here you will likely have the delightful experience of meeting Wade who drives your guests on the shuttle bus and adds so much fun to your event!!

I wish that the bride and groom could have stayed the night in Ruby's Cottage because the venue was just so beautiful it was hard to leave and while getting ready I with there would have been some dishes and cups in Ruby's cottage for us to use. We brought some stuff but forgot a minor item that is pretty standard in a kitchen so it would have been nice to have something there as a back up plan.

Great venue. Extremely beautiful. The event manager wasn't as helpful an asset as I anticipated and the speakers and microphones had to be rented even though they say that they include an audio package so anticipate those extra charges. Overall we were very happy with our wedding.

Spruce Mountain Ranch is a beautiful location for a wedding. The natural beauty that surrounds the location speaks for itself. The foothills in the background, the rustic lodge, the spruce trees, and the cattle in the distance make it the perfect location for a Colorado themed wedding. All of the scenery around the ranch makes beautiful photos. There are so many amazing spots to take photos. It is a beautiful venue for a ceremony and reception. They even have multiple locations for the ceremony and reception to take place. I love the mountainside for the ceremony. It makes for stunning photos. A nice bonus of this venue is that you get the place to yourself on the day of your wedding (10 hour block). It is nice knowing that guest will not be seeing any other brides on your special day. The space that the bride and bridesmaids get ready in, basically a house, is gorgeous and has plenty of room. I love the dance floor at this venue. It is outside under beautiful lights. While dancing is taking place, you can have s’more at an outside fireplace. The guests at my wedding loved this. Guests were impressed by the venue. They kept talking about how the location was beautiful. My only complaint about this venue is that we had a few miscommunications during the wedding day. Therefore, my suggestion would to make sure to clarify things with them multiply times, including the day of. I would also demand to meet the representative from Spruce Mountain Ranch that will actually be in charge of the ranch the day of your wedding. The first time that I meet the person was the day of the wedding. Since I had never talked to her before, she did not know anything about our wedding. Therefore, she made decisions that went against what we wanted. Having conversations with her about our wedding before the event could have solved this. I would highly recommend this location even with the miscommunication. Spruce Mountain Ranch is a gorgeous place for a wedding.

Spruce Mountain Ranch is a beautiful venue! We are so glad we found it after the September 2013 flood took out some of our top venues. Guests loved the ranch and it was a small getaway from the city.

The only negative experience I had with this venue is just the lack of flexibility. The require event insurance, you to use there preferred vendor list, and they require a day of coordinator (which I would recommend anyway). With everything required and the specific vendors it did get a bit expensive. Also, a few of my emails went unanswered for months.

In the end everything turned out beautiful just make sure you thoroughly read the contract before you sign!
