The Briarwood Inn was wonderful to work with from start to finish. The venue, food and service were all top notch. Duncan was great to work with throughout the entire planning phase. Both my wife and I work in the hospitality industry, so we had high expectations and the Briarwood Inn exceeded each of them. I would highly recommend this venue for any special event whether it be a dinner for 2 people or a wedding for 200 people.

Duncan the general manager was amazing!! From the first time we met him we felt comfortable and trusting with putting him in charge. He took every concern into account and provide it as extra reassurance that he would make her day wonderful. We had some weather issues and he handled them perfectly delaying our ceremony by a few minutes but making sure we got the outdoor ceremony we wanted. I have no complaints and no negative criticism of this venue or the staff. They truly made our day very magical.

The Briarwood Inn is the best venue that anyone could ever ask for. I selected the Briarwood Inn because of its elegant and intimate setting. Nestled just below Table Mountain, the Briarwood Inn offers a mountain setting, but is still only about 20 minutes from Downtown Denver. For my wedding planning, I worked with Duncan, the general manager at the restaurant. He was extremely accommodating, flexible, and willing to take charge of any detail I needed. From the moment I met Duncan, I knew that my wedding planning was in the right hands. On the day of the wedding, Duncan and his staff helped make the day run flawlessly. My wedding was stress free and went off without a hitch. All guests were amazed with the beauty of my wedding and I know that would not have been possible without Duncan and his staff. I highly recommend the Briarwood Inn.

This place is AMAZING for weddings!! So beautiful inside and out and Duncan is the best!! He took care of everything from the day we booked up until the last minutes of my wedding! My sister left her wallet at the restaurant and he dropped it of to her hotel for her that night since she and her family were leaving town the next day. He was so flexible with changes. We were supposed to have an outdoor wedding and reception and (thanks Colorado weather...) it stormed and hailed that day so Duncan moved everything inside and it was still beautiful! His staff is super professional and courteous, I'm still hearing about how great everyone was from my guests. I definitely recommend this place for any event...the food is AMAZING!!

There are two parts to my review, one part regarding Duncan Newman, the event coordinator at The Briarwood Inn, and the second part regarding the venue itself.

Duncan planned out the entire ceremony and reception, what order we should walk in, where we should stand, but he was also very receptive and responsive to suggestions made my myself, my husband or our family. He ushered us around the reception to ensure that we didn't spend too much time at any one table, that we would have an opportunity to see everybody, and that we would still have time to cut the cake and take photos. This was perfect for me because I was a big emotional stress ball; Duncan was a necessity to keep things moving.

Duncan worked with all of my vendors to put everything together. Since many vendors deliver the day of the wedding, this was helpful for me to not have to worry about it, especially since I had a brunch wedding that started at 10am.

The most important thing that Duncan did was take care of my husband and me during the reception. He brought us the appetizers we didn't have a chance to sample, he kept our glasses full, and he took our order and brought our food first. He made us feel like it truly was our special day and we were the most important people there. He showed us so much respect. His staff was incredible also, very attentive to our guests and ourselves.

I chose the venue because it's in the foothills of Colorado (beautiful!) and the building and grounds are gorgeous. I did very little decorating because it is such a beautiful space. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves, including the rooms flanking the bar, where my husband and I prepared separately. The food was incredible, all of my guests were satisfied with their meals. We had fruit served in globe wine glasses, the presentation at the tables was phenomenal. Our names were printed on the menus with a congratulatory message.

Everything culminated in the perfect wedding I could ask for.

FIVE STARS!! I had the wedding of my dreams and it wouldn't have been possible without the help of Duncan (GM of The Briarwood) and his amazing staff!
I was originally suppose to have my wedding up in Aspen but 6 months before the wedding date we decided to move it more local. This was the best decision I made when it came to my wedding! We booked a brunch wedding which was not only reasonable but picture perfect with their outside area!
Duncan continued to email me leading up to our wedding date asking if there was anything he could help out with, this continued to put my mind at ease. The day before the wedding we had our rehearsal which Duncan led, in directing us exactly where we needed to stand and how everything should go. On the day of the wedding I thought I would be a stress ball but I was just as calm as can be! The Briarwood has the perfect bridal suite setup and the staff kept the mimosas going in there before the ceremony which was awesome. Duncan and his staff spent hours setting up and I am eternally thankful for everything he did, it looked better than I could have ever imagined. Everything went so smoothly from start to finish. I would recommend this location to anyone the food is amazing, location is perfect, and staff is top notch! If you want your guests to talk about your wedding to everyone they know look no further than The Briarwood, you wont be disappointed!

We had our wedding at the Briarwood on the evening of September 14th, 2013. My wife and I worked very closely with the onsite wedding coordinator, Duncan, in the planning of our wedding. We had about 80 guests at the wedding and only had about 2 months to plan our wedding. From the minute we met Duncan we were confident that he would take care of everything. He walked us through all the critical parts of planning the wedding and he made sure to listen and help us create a wedding that was totally ours.

We had a fall wedding, but wanted the wedding outside. During the week of our wedding in Colorado we had massive storms and rain and Duncan worked with us to best coordinate how to handle the weather in case it did not hold up. On the day of the wedding he counseled us in having the wedding ceremony outside, dinner inside and the dancing outside. He watched the weather and helped us make a "game-time" decision. It worked out, we dodged the rain and had a fantastic wedding due to Duncan's help.

Duncan even helped with the wedding planning itself, making sure we knew where to stand, what decisions needed to be made, ordered wine special for our event and helped us keep it all within our budget. On top of the services, the food at the Briarwood is fantastic and the entire staff was kind, helpful and bent over backwards to make our event special. The event is wonderful for both indoor and outdoor weddings.

We would highly recommend the Briarwood and Duncan to any couple looking for a magical event for their special day.

My husband and I knew The Briarwood Inn was the perfect place for us to get married as soon as we met with the coordinator for the first time. We wanted a small, laid back wedding outside preferably some place close to the mountains. The view from the patio area is beautiful and very intimate. The staff is very accommodating, they made sure everything was perfect during the entire day of our wedding. Bri was very helpful with everything, she always responded back to my many questions very quickly and made sure everything was going to go the way we imagined it would be. Kate was so sweet and a tremendous help the day of the wedding, she did an excellent job the entire day! Our guest loved The Briarwood Inn, but most of all they loved the food! I'm still hearing from some family members just how great the food was! My husband and I couldn't have picked a better place for our wedding. We look forward to going back for our anniversary!

Briarwood is perfect in every way! I was planning my wedding 822 miles away in Saint Louis, MO and it couldn't have been easier; Bri was Auuuuhmazing to work with. She continuously worked with both my husband and I to plan out most ideal day. She was constantly understanding of our budget, gave us great suggestions and always replied to us in a timely manor. I was able to finally meet Bri our weekend rehearsal and she was everything I imagined and more. Thanks to Bri and the staff at Briarwood our wedding was an event to remember, and our reception brunch is still talked about among our friends. If you are looking for a one of kind mountain venue with people who truly care about your special occasion, I suggest you give Briarwood call!

My wife and I were lucky enough to find the Briarwood after a long and tedious search. From the beginning Bri was very helpful and proactive in assisting with the event planning and coordination. We had a smaller wedding than the usual but the venue itself can definitely accommodate a larger wedding comfortably.

The food was great! Many of our guests raved about the dining experience and have visited the restaurant since. The staff provided were very friendly, professional and attentive. We were really fortunate to hold our wedding at the Briarwood and we encourage everyone to check this place out !

(We have been back for a weekend dinner and most of the staff actually remembered us and our wedding! Great place !)

Briarwood Inn was an exceptional venue for our wedding. The backdrop of the Rocky Mountain Foothills, the gardens and patio area provided a comfortable outdoor gathering place for us to meet with friends and family before the ceremony. The Inn is charming and comfortable with an old world granduer unmatched in the Denver metro area. We moved indoors to a privare dining room for champagne toasts and rounds of congratulations. Our choice for luncheon was a High Tea, a truly special and enjoyable time which many guests had not experienced.

Briarwood Inn was an exceptional venue for our wedding. The backdrop of the Rocky Mountain Foothills, the gardens and patio area provided a comfortable outdoor gathering place for us to meet with friends and family before the ceremony. The Inn is charming and comfortable with an old world granduer unmatched in the Denver metro area. We moved indoors to a privare dining room for champagne toasts and rounds of congratulations. Our choice for luncheon was a High Tea, a truly special and enjoyable time which many guests had not experienced.

I worked with Bri for my 100-ish person wedding at the Briarwood. Throughout the planning, she dealt with me, my then-fiance, and my long-distance mother. She was 100% professional, accommodating, helpful, and personable. It seemed like anything we requested or suggested- she made happen with a smile. At the actual event, the patio was beautiful, the service was wonderful, and the food was delicious. Bri and her staff made my wedding go off without a hitch. You won't be disappointed having your wedding there!

Bri and the staff at the Briarwood Inn were absolutely fantastic. From the beginning planning stages of our wedding to the event, Bri made our special occasion flawless. She was responsive, provided multiple options and suggestions, and conducted herself with the upmost integrity. My husband and I greatly appreciated the personal touches and attention she gave to us. Our guests were also impressed with the venue, food, professionalism and quality the Briarwood Inn provides. We were able to focus on our wedding being a celebration of friends and family. We did not have to think about any of the details as the Briarwood Inn's staff had all the details well orchestrated throughout the evening.

I had my wedding at the Briarwood Inn in June 2013. Up until May I worked with Bri who was very helpful and responsive to all my questions. Then Kate took over for the actual wedding. I was very nervous about a change in contact, however Kate was great! Bri and Kate both made my wedding planning and day stress free. The outdoor patio was a great space for my wedding. The food was amazing and the servers were great too! The only thing that went wrong was that one of my champagne flutes that I brought to the venue broke, but the Briarwood had a replacement we used instead. It was disappointing because we couldn't use and keep our actual wedding flutes, but it worked out ok.
