The Pines Catering was absolutely amazing!! We worked with Stephanie and she was wonderful. She was always quick to answer our emails and inquires and did everything she could to make us happy. We went to two tastings and the food was very good and affordable. Her staff were professional and we have no complaints about anything. Our wedding was at Hudson Gardens and they were very familiar with the venue and the staff there so that was helpful. We highly recommend using them as your caterers for any event.

The staff of The Pines at Genesee was amazing from day one. We put our deposit on the venue for one date, then our wedding got delayed one year. They moved it over to the next date without any problems.

Going in for our tastings was pretty simple, and they were very accommodating. I have a nut allergy, and they did make sure there were no nuts in what we chose. We went with the Walk Around Feast and it was amazing! Truly a hit with all of our guests!

All in all it was a truly amazing venue with great views and outstanding service!

We recently had our wedding at Washington Park this past June and utilized the Pines for catering services. They were absolutely amazing!! I was referred by someone who utilizes their services for corporate catering events, and we are so happy to have found them. We working with both Stephanie and Regan who were very professional and easy to communicate with. We did not have a wedding planner, but both Stephanie and Regan were wonderful in helping us not only with the catering but with the planning and logistics for the big day! They always made themselves available to meet with us especially in the weeks leading up to the day. They helped us work through orders with other vendors and streamlined the whole process. The food was great which was reiterated by almost all of our guests (who had second and even third helpings in some cases!!). Everything from the original tastings to the day of our wedding was handled with professionalism and care. The staff was wonderful and was available to help us transition our seating from the area of the ceremony in the park to the boathouse where the reception was held. We could not have pulled off this memorable experience without their expertise! A huge thanks to The Pines and especially Stephanie and Regan for all of their help!! We would never hesitate to use them again and would recommend them for anyone in need of catering services!!!

Best,

Matthew & Carmen Vandal

The Pines at Genesee was the PERFECT choice for our wedding! Not only is it absolutely beautiful but the food is delicious, the service is outstanding, and the value was great! Lindsay was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning always responding to me timely and helping me work out all the details. Regan was our day of coordinator and she was amazing! Her entire purpose was to make sure our day was exactly what we hoped for and she did just that. The rest of the staff was great as well! The food was delicious and all the guests loved it! If I had it all to do over again I would absolutely choose The Pines!

We booked The Pines at Genesee about 6 months before our wedding date and had a wonderful experience. We used them for reception only and everything went perfectly! Lindsay and Regan were terrific at making sure we had everything we needed. We even had specific traditions we incorporated. I emailed Regan and asked if this Polish tradition of cold cuts being brought out would be doable. She told me that they would do everything they could to make my day exactly as I wanted it to be. And they made it work and my groom's father was very happy they were able to bring a little slice of Poland to the wedding. They were also acccomodating to let his dad's band play and alternate with the DJ. Everyone raved about our food as well. Most wedding food tastes exactly like that, wedding food. This food was SO good. I can't tell you how many wonderful compliments we got about their catering. They also worked with us on budget costs as well as payment time frames. We were a little late on some payments, but I kept them in the loop the whole time and they were wonderful in working with us. I have heard nothing but great things about this venue and will continue to recommend them to EVERYONE from here on out.

The Pines at Genesee made our wedding day wonderful, and so easy!

We first contacted the Pines a mere 9 days before our wedding date, which was Sept 22, 2013. My fiance and I had already had to change our wedding date due to a surprise deployment, and after our original venue in Estes Park was inaccessible due to the flooding, we were frantically searching for a new venue the week before the wedding!

Even thought the venue was busy setting up two weddings, they allowed us to drop by the weekend before, see the venue, and chat with one of their wedding coordinators (Lindsay). Both ceremony sites were beautiful, and the reception area was perfect for our 90-person reception and our large amount of children under 4!

They made planning an entirely new wedding easy, helping us set up the timeline for the day and giving us great recommendations for a new officiant. Our day-of coordinator (Regan) even helped my mother bustle my dress during the reception! After the ceremony, staff met my new husband and I and our wedding party outside with appetizers and made sure we ate something, which was perfect as we were starving!

The Pines has hired the absolute best staff. Completely courteous and helpful, they were very extremely fast and diligent when it came to cleaning plates and handing out cake! So nice!

The reception area was amazing! We had the top floor of the venue for the reception, and it was perfect for our guests. We had an entire 'kids room' designated for the kids buffet, and the staff set up butcher paper once they were done eating so the could color on the table and keep themselves entertained.

And don't even get me started on the food! Even though we signed the contract a short WEEK before the wedding, all of the appetizers, entrees, and sides were DELICIOUS! I can't count how many guests came up to us and said that the meal was the best they'd ever had at a wedding.

Thank you, Pines!!! You made our wedding day beautiful and perfect!

This place is PERFECT! The ceremony sites are magical, hidden in the trees, our guests are still talking about the food, the staff was very helpful. You don't need a wedding planner here. They do it all for you. Takes away a LOT of stress. We had over 200 people at our wedding and it went so smoothly, I didn't have to think about a thing at the wedding. I just had to enjoy it.

I'm so glad I chose The Pines to have my wedding at. My contact Lindsay was so helpful. She took all my worries away, and the wedding was absolutely beautiful. She even helped me choose my other vendors. The Pines saved us money by allowing us to bring our own alcohol. We got married under the aspen trees on the terrace in the woods and the pictures are awesome! The food was delicious. All the staff was smiling as much as the guests. I highly recommend this vendor!

We had our wedding May 11 at the Pines at Genesee. We had an outdoor ceremony at the Evergreen Wedding Terrace and our reception was held indoors on the lower level. The Evergreen Wedding Terrace was beautiful, even with the late snow. After the ceremony we also walked up the hill a little way and took photos which turned out great and had the outdoor/mountain feeling that we were going for. It was also nice to have perfect scenery at the venue instead of having to drive somewhere else to take pictures and come back. The lower level was redone about a year ago and was very nice inside. There are new floors, a fireplace, and the layout was great for a wedding reception. Lindsay was our wedding coordinator and she did an awesome job of running everything. She was so patient and on top of her stuff. Before the wedding she even had a weather map pulled up to assure me that the rain would stop before the ceremony started. We were able to keep our ceremony outside which made me really happy. The value there is also great, they include everything you will need except the decorations. You don't have to worry about hidden fees or other things. You can also bring in your own alcohol which saved us thousands of dollars. That is also part of the value of this place! I visited a lot of venues that had the outdoor/mountain setting and this one by far was the best value and was still everything we were looking for. It was also nice that it was close to Denver for out of state guests so they didn't have to fly in and drive hours up a mountain. We had so much fun at our wedding and everyone talked about how beautiful it was! I am thrilled we went with the Pines, they take great care of the couples during wedding planning and the day of!

We couldn't have asked a better venue for our wedding day. I was never a girl who dreamed of her wedding before finding this venue. Once we found the Pines at Genesee I knew I had a place that would be better than any dream. The venue is breathe taking and the service that they provide are amazing. The event coordinator, Lindsay Conroy was the most attentive person I've ever met... she answered very crazy question I had no matter the hour night or day. I told Lindsay this before but I'll say it again..... If we could take her essence and make a series of perfume the 3 fragrances would be Efficiency, Professionalism, and Awesomeness by the Pines. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a perfect day because you need the right people to make a dream a reality.

The Pines at Genesee catered our wedding. The food was delicious. We're from New York so we know good food. All our New York guest loved the food as well, two days later everyone is still talking about the quesadilla station. We're looking for an excuse to throw a party to be catered by the Pines so we can have some more.

I am so happy we had our wedding at The Pines. Lindsay and staff are amazing. Lindsay was quick to respond to any questions we asked. Their vendor packages made planning a wedding (from out of state) easy. The outdoor terraces are lovely. It's was a perfect setting for our ceremony and pictures. The newly remodeled reception room is gorgeous. We had a wonderful night and our guests continue to comment on how much they enjoyed it too. Oh and the food is amazing. The pesto mashed potatoes and green bread are MUST haves menu items!!!!

We were extremely pleased with the Pines. We had our wedding ceremony there as well as the reception and we very satisfied with the service, food, staff, beauty, and atmosphere. Lindsay and Anna worked very hard to make our day special, pleasant, beautiful, and memorable. Our guests are still talking about the wonderful experience they had as well. They loved the food, the staff and the wonderful view! The Pines was recommended to us by friends and we were so glad we decided to have our wedding and reception there!

The Pines at Genesee is a beautiful location for a ceremony and reception, and the staff is so helpful throughout the whole planning and execution of the wedding. My contact, Lindsay, answered endless questions patiently, offered good suggestions, was a wealth of knowledge about how weddings usually run, and made several changes I requested somewhat last minute. Day-of she made sure everything ran smoothly on-site. Everything was on-time, the whole staff is friendly and curteous, and the food is delicious. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone getting married...it was the perfect backdrop for our dream wedding, and at a reasonable price!

Jean and Anna were awesome at helping me plan my wedding from out of state.( My husband is in the military and is stationed in California and we are both from Colorado. So I have been living out there with him.) They worked around my schedule and when I was in town. They always responded quickly when I emailed or called them. Anna was extremely up front about everything before we booked them. They don't not trap you into extra costs! Jean was on top of things and called all other venues and made sure everyone was on the same page! Neither or those ladies were at the reception but the server in charge did an awesome job! Everything went off without a hitch! I couldn't have asked for a better reception!! Plus the food is very good!! THey also worked with us when one of our guests had a food allergy. They made sure he had something he could eat!

The Pines at Genesee was a beautiful place to get married. Just located up the mountain from Golden, Colorado, the large windows provided a spectacular view of Denver, Colorado. The Ceremony site located next door is convenient for guests to just walk through the parking lot for the Reception. The Ceremony site tucked into a wooded area allows for guests to forget how close they are to the Reception site. The Pines staff was very professional and helped during the set up/take down process. The Pines at Genesee is one of the only sites that allows for one to bring in their own alcohol, which is a large part of the cost savings. The place itself is beautiful and the decor inside matches anyone’s taste for a wedding, that not much decorating even has to occur. Would recommend this site to others, and in fact many of our guests commented on how beautiful our wedding was.

LOVE the Pines at Genesee! Just had my wedding at the Evergreen Terrace and the main floor of the reception venue. We booked from 4-10 pm (added an additional hour because I didn't think we had enough time but turns out that extra hour wasn't really necessary). Even though you may think you know exactly how/when to do things during your reception or ceremony ask Lindsay or any of the other coordinators how they typically have handled certain transitions. Their suggestions on how things have typically worked best for the venue space were extremely helpful and really helped keep everything on track. Lindsay was amazing, the food was delicious (we did buffet with meat, veg and salad options) and stocking your own bar really helped keep the overall cost down. Had all of my guests staying in Golden (I live in Denver) and everyone got a chance to experience the beauty and unique feel to Colorado foothills without having to go great distances once they flew out here. I highly recommend the Pines at Genesee - the only complaint that I have is that there is no place for the groomsmen to go upstairs and the bridal room is TINY or you have to use the bathroom - that was a downer as my wedding party was super big.

The wedding terrace and lower level of The Pines provided the perfect mountain backdrop without requiring guests to travel too far from Denver. Working with Lindsay was seamless and her knowledge vast. She was quick to answer questions and offer advice. The day of the wedding went perfectly. Lindsey and her staff were prepared, knowledgable and above all else friendly and responsive to our guests. There were some tight limits around arrival time, pick-up, etc. but we knew about them upfront and it turned out just fine! We received so many compliments about the beauty of the venue as well as how delicious the food was. I would highly recommend The Pines to anyone searching for a venue. I honestly could not have expected our day to go better and a lot of that credit must be given to The Pines!

It was perfect! The staff is extremely kind and accommodating.

Everything was setup beautifully with lights and the decor is very beautiful, simple and lovely.

I didn't have a wedding planner and was partially running the show, and the staff helped a great deal in making sure things kept on schedule, but also were flexible when we needed extra time before certain things were supposed to take place. This is key when picking a place! Things never start the minute they're supposed to, but they helped me stay calm about things needing to be delayed.

I'm not really sure about the value for cost. I think everything was well worth what we paid for. The food was delicious and many of our guests commented on how good it was. I did end up needing an additional hour at the end of the night, since I had the wedding ceremony there and that took up an hour of the evening. And that extra hour's cost was quite a bit considering everything that was paid for, but I understand the high cost due to keeping the staff there longer.

All in all, a wonderful venue to have a wedding at, very professional and flexible, delicious food and beautiful location. Thank you to the staff!

We loved the choices The Pines gave us for our rentals, food, and the reception service. They have a spectacular vantage point overlooking Golden and the night lights of Denver. We estimated food per person and ended up with way more than we actually needed. Under estimate a few heads to feed and you'll still be fine. The Groom is also active duty military and our dates needed to be changed, the pines was very helpful with our needs and flexible with the cost of changing the date.

Beautiful venue! Lindsay and her staff were very friendly and extremely helpful from begining to end. We felt that we got a great value for the services that were provided. THere were a lot of extra charges for little things, but The Pines let us know about these charges up front, which was helpful. We loved being able to provid our own alcohol, as thiis saved us quite a bit of money.

Lindsay was so patient and helpful throughout the entire planning process and Reagan was soooooo awesome the day of! SHe kept my nerves in check and made sure I always had everything I needed. THe day of staff was fabulous, they took great care of my groom and I and our guests had nothing but good things to say about the service they received.

I appreciate the stict timeline that was enforced because it kept the entire evening on track. But for some of my vendors, it was not as smooth.We were told that under no circumstance are the vendors allowed to show up early for setup. Okay, fine. But they were to have 1 hour for setup. My florist arrived promptly at 3:00 and was told at 3:40 that she needed to pack up and go. When you only have 60 minutes to set up, 20 minutes is A LOT of time! The end result was that she was not able to put out about $200 worth of flowers and decorations that I had already paid for!

Overall our experince with The Pines was pretty awesome! We could not have asked for abetter day and would absolutely recommend this venue!

The Pines at Genesee is so beautiful! We had our wedding on their Terrace and it was picture perfect. It's really easy to get to and give directions out...especially for those out-of-towners. The owner and wedding coordinator are super nice and very helpful. We also used their catering service and it was out of this world. I would totally recommend The Pines if you're doing a mountain wedding but still easy to get to.

The Pines is a catering company and they offered a lot of variety in food choices for my guests- I didn't get one bit of negative feedback on the food- everyone loved it. The location is also wonderful- close enough to Denver to be convienent, but also up into the mountains just enough to feel far away. I'm very happy with my choice to use the Pines as my reception/ceremony venue.

Lindsey, who is the owner, was excellent! She is knowledgeable about weddings and receptions. She knows what works and what does not work. There is no second guessing with your reception. She is organized and extremely detailed oriented. Her employees are professional and appear happy in the work they do. We did not have to worry about forgetting anything. The facilities are roomy and appealing to the eye and the location of each room flows comfortably. We were on the main floor. The “kids buffet and special room” was received well and feedback was very positive. We had the buffet for adults and the food was abundant and tasty. We would highly recommend your wedding reception be held at the Pines in Genesee.

My daughter selected the Pines at Genesee for her August Wedding and it was picture perfect. The food was excellent, and the staff are very good at what they do...the service was awesome, including the way they set up the bar!! They contract you in very tightly, so be prepared to provide and follow through with a host of requirments, including a strict timeline and no use of bathroom facilities during the rehearsal. Overall, it was a great experience and Lindsay obviously knows her business. We had a glitch during our event where I-70 was closed and many guests and vendors were late, however we were not allowed to extend the timeline without incurring additional costs, so the event was much shorter than we had planned, but it all worked out well.
Lindsay takes great care to coordinate the vendors and it was such a relief to know that SHE knew where everyone was. My daughter's two dogs were allowed to be in the ceremony, which was something I don't think The Pines had dealt with before, but with someone assigned to take the dogs home as soon as the ceremony was over it went off without a hitch. THANK YOU to the wonderful staff at the Pines for a day we will always remember!!

Loved having this as our venue. Our wedding coordinator was wonderful prior to the wedding and the day of. All of our guests LOVED the food and the scenery. We are VERY pleased with how our wedding turned out. It was beautiful outside ceremony with an evening reception in the lower level. The cleanliness could improve. There were broken pots, burnt out lightbulbs, dirty glass, etc. that we had requested to be fixed prior to the reception and wasn't. But overall, we were very pleased with The Pines.

BEAUTIFUL venue. We were scheduled for an outside wedding, and due to a freak snowstorm, ended up moving it inside. Lindsay was wonderful in getting everything moved inside at such late notice. Since they do catering in-house, they're not flexible at bringing in outside food, but being able to bring you own alcohol is awesome! All in all, it was a great experience - I highly recommend them!

The Pines were absolutely fantastic to us, I would make sure you read the contracts because they will hold you them. (as they should) If you mess up with any of the agreements it could be additionally costly to you, I wouldn't have picked a different venue though it was gorgeous and we loved it!

We chose the Pines for our wedding ceremony and reception because of the beautiful location and reasonable price. They are very professional and very organized which helped the day run smoothly. Lindsay helped make sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time.
My biggest complaint with the process of working with the Pines was their lack of flexibility when it came to making the day our day. They are very strict about what kind of decor you can use as well as having a very short time window for set up. I did a lot of DIY projects that I wanted incorporated, but had to make quite a few adjustments because of all of their "rules". We only had an hour and a half from the time we were allowed in the venue to the start of the ceremony, which made the set up process stressful. There was a lot of logistical things for me to work out to make sure we could get everything done. Some of my other venues couldn't guarantee a delivery window within such a short amount of time so I had to have family members pick up things like the cake.
We weren't allowed on the property even a little early to take pictures before the time frame either so the groom, groomsmen and his family had to drive to a different location to take pictures before the ceremony.
The location made it worth it, but had I known the difficulty of this beforehand I would have considered looking somewhere else.
I would recommend this location, but with caution.

I used the Pines for my wedding reception. I was in the downstairs room and it was the most beautiful venue. The food was amazing, many people commented that it was the best wedding food that they had ever had. They really stick to their rules and they do not let you know upfront what all of them are, so ask for ALL of the rules before you sign with them. They are very professional and return calls and emails quickly, but they have many more rules than other places. These impact your decorating, centerpieces, the time alcohol is allowed to be served, and delievering your favors right before the ceremony. However, we saved a fortune getting our alcohol with a liquor store. Just some things to consider. But overall I was fairly happy with their service.

the pines was just fabulous. The only thing is they will not let you take food home with you, so if you plan on getting married here make sure you plan to have something to eat at your hotel....trust me you will be hungry because during the reception you will be so busy. Also to have the wedding planner at your rehearsal, you will be expected to pay another two hundred dollars an hour to have her help you. We didn't have her at the rehearsal and wedding day we didn't quite have communication up to speeed.

We had my daughters wedding on 8/23/13. The venue overall is very nice and easy to get to. Unfortunately the weather was not co-operating and we had to have our ceremony indoors. The venue was prepared for the indoor ceremony. Set up before the ceremony was chaotic. We were given only an hour to set up centerpieces etc. It was chaos because we had to compete with the venue staff. I expected tables to be set before we arrived instead we had to ask and wait for center cloths and move silverware out of the center of the table to place our centerpieces. Also, I was told that someone would monitor the arriving of the guests. No one did that and guests were roaming around downstairs while we were trying to set up. The room was very crowded with 18 tables and very dark as the lights were turned way down. I felt that Reagan was very attentive and did a great job. My one complaint was that I was continually asked if I wanted to extend our time an additional hour ($500). The answer was no several times. The staff member then asked my daughter who said no and directed her to me. They then turned to the groom and said that my daughter said she wanted an additional hour and asked if it was ok with him. I signed the contract and I said no not one time but at least 3 times. Also, rather than pouring Champagne out of the bottle , all bottles were opened and poured into pitchers resulting in two full wasted pitchers at our expense.
There were no follow up calls or emails from Lindsay which was very disappointing. I felt like the venue collected our money and moved on to the next event.
Overall I felt like this venue was too restricting for a relaxed wedding. Perhaps if an earlier time was allowed for setup, the whole feeling would have been a more pleasant experience.

I didn't ask for much from my coordinator at the Pines, and she not once went out of her way for me. She was extremely rude to my fiance and I during our planning meeting. It was one of the worst experiences of my whole wedding. The venue is beautiful and easy which is why I chose it, but despite all of that, I would have chose somewhere different if I knew how myself and my guests were going to be treated.

Beautiful Venue, good price, would not recommend the sack lunches, but, desserts were out of this world. Sore spot and memory is a lot of my family complained the way they were treated by the event planner that works for the pines. She was very rude to a lot of my guests and they complained to me about it...other than that big black mark, beautiful location and wedding memories. The quality of the service by the servers was great, but she really lacked professionalism.

I originally was to have my wedding at the Evergreen Lake House, unfortunately my venue was flooded the day before. The Pines at Genesee was our only option for my wedding to go on. I spoke with Lindsay and Abbey, I had to fire all of my vendors because they wouldn't allow our food or bartender into the building. I had to pay thousands extra for them to make my food. They tried to book me for an outdoor ceremony when the forecast all weekend was rain. They couldn't make any blended drinks with my ore purchased alcohol because their " bartenders" didn't have the supplies nor did they have a blender. They also wouldn't let the groom and groomsmen take a shot at the reception. They shoved my cake table in a dark corner and made it so no one could see us cutting the cake. My timeline was crammed and we had barely any time to dance, and tried to charge us $500 for one hour extra. They wouldn't allow us to blow bubbles for our closing ceremony. This venue could have been an unsung hero to our disaster flood wedding but instead they sucked as much money as they could from us without any regard to what we just went through. They made me much more stressed out and quite unhappy with how they treated us. I would not ever recommend this place to anyone I know

The Pines at Genesee responded with the following comments:

I am very sorry you were unhappy. It is very difficult to move your wedding so last minute. We did try our best to accommodate everything for you. We went out of our way as much as possible to help with only 2 days notice. I have tried to address all of your concerns in this response, but we are happy to discuss anything with you. We reduced our cost significantly for the venue, provided your catering, provided all your plates, forks etc. at no additional charge, helped with all the day-of coordination, helped set up your napkins, centerpieces and favors and tried our very best to make you as happy as possible. Because we are a catering company and have a food service license, we cannot have outside caterers in the kitchen. However, it was also our understanding that your caterer had no record of your order and even if you had been able to have your event at your original venue and the weather was beautiful, you would not have had any food, servers, plates or utensils. We provide our bartenders at no additional cost and also contacted the bartending service directly to ensure that you were able to get a refund for the services they would not be able to provide. We were unaware that you wanted blended drinks. We do have blenders, but need some advance notice to have them set up. We do not allow shots because they can result in significant problems, but I believe that this is common for most venues. We also try not to talk anyone into any "extras" like an outdoor ceremony, but we wanted to make sure you were aware of all of your options. We do allow bubbles for your exit at the end of the event and I am not sure who told you that you could not do it - we actually set out your bubbles with your favors ourselves. When your father asked us about adding extra time, we told him the cost and recommended that he wait to make the decision until the night of the wedding to make sure you actually wanted it. When the time came, we were told that you did not want to add the extra time because people were starting to leave and you did not need the extra dance time. Again, I am so sorry that your original venue flooded and the weather was bad. It did seem that the event went well and we wish you the very best in your married life.
