Briarwood Inn is definitely a rare find in the Golden/Denver area. From its classic decor/ambiance (Old World European feel) and the beautiful garden patio, to its friendly staff and delicious food!

My husband and I had our wedding there last week.. it went beyond our expectations! I knew from the first time I walked in, that Briarwood was the place for us. Not only is the venue classy and beautiful, Stephanie Blocher (the catering manager) made me feel welcomed and not "just another bride". We had an intimate wedding ceremony and dinner reception for 50 family/out-of-town guests, followed by an additional 50 in-town guests at the Celebration Party. Although we had a short rain delay that day, EVERYTHING came together and went off without a hitch! We were so pleased with all the decorations, flowers, table arrangements and the food! Some of our guests are on the "pickier" side when it comes to meals, and even they were impressed! We couldn't have planned it better! Stephanie and her staff were absolutely amazing and made sure everyone was having a great time. They treated us like VIPs, made sure the two of us ate and drank, and kept things running smoothly (especially with two groups of guests).. we did not worry about a thing.. so THANK YOU!

All of our guests loved Briarwood and were surprised that such a place existed! Not that we're in competition with anyone, but I think we had the PERFECT wedding that day! We will definitely be back as it holds a special place in our hearts! Maybe we'll be back during the Christmas time to check out all the festive decorations! :)

I cannot express how happy we were with our venue - the setting, the food, the wine, the staff were all spectacular! The moment we met Duncan he took care of us. His attention to detail leading up to the day and on the day was amazing. Could not recommend Duncan and The Briarwood highly enough. Truly magical.

We had our wedding reception at the Briarwood Inn and it was absolutely FANTASTIC. The wait staff was incredibly attentive and quick to help. Also, due to rain, we had to move the dinner from on the patio to inside the dinning room. Annie, the event coordinator, took care of all of this without me, my husband or any of our guests worrying about a single thing. It went so smoothly that people thought that the change of location was supposed to happen. The food was spectacular and gourmet for an affordable price. You can also do much more customization to make the venue fit into your budget than other venues that we vetted. The Briarwood did all of the decorating with just a few pictures and directions from me. I was so glad not to have to worry about that the morning of my wedding! Due to the high winds, some of the decorations couldn't be accommodated. However, they did an excellent job of adjusting and still making the Art Deco theme come across. My husband are so glad that we picked to celebrate our special day at the Briarwood... It couldn't have gone any better!

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 such a hidden gem. We couldn't have asked for a better place to have our wedding. The outdoor patio is beautiful, the food is amazing, and to top it all off they take all the stress away. Duncan runs the weddings and he is amazing. He was super helpful with any questions I had while working on planning the wedding from out of town and then the day of he (along with the wonderful staff) did all of the decorations set up and take down. I didn't have to worry about anything. They really made the day perfect.
