Nestled at the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, the peaceful village of Grand Lake and Western Riviera Lakeside Events provide a picturesque backdrop for a Colorado mountain destination wedding, or any gathering year round. Each season is unique in its beauty and offerings for any celebration or event.

You can do it all at Western Riviera where one easy phone call (970-627-3580) or email (motel@westernriv.com) leads you to our team of professionals who are ready to assist you with your catering, lodging, event space and planning needs. Chris French of Wild Horse Catering, our exclusive onsite caterer, is available to schedule a site tour, provide catering information and help you plan the perfect menu for your special day. You may begin your planning by viewing their website at www.wildhorsecatering.com/weddings.htm.

Our finely finished 2,000 sq. ft. interior space accommodates up to 122 guests, and includes a great room, bar and restrooms. The great room and 1,000 sq. ft. outdoor deck space are perfect for casual or formal events, boasting lake views throughout both the great room and deck! Your guests will be mesmerized by the awe-inspiring mountain vistas reflecting on Grand Lake while watching boats and people along the waterfront.

Spring is the season of renewal and awakening when you may experience the first sightings of new offspring - moose, deer, elk and black bears - and welcome the hummingbirds back to their nesting grounds. Once again the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, Chili Cook-off, hiking trails and activities on the lake begin to lure people to the mountains.

Summer is our high season when our lake and town are at its busiest - the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre is in full swing, fireworks explode over the lake on the 4th of July, antique wooden boats tie up to the docks, Bingo is being played in the park, the beach area is filled with families and friends, and of course, our annual Buffalo BBQ Weekend is back with live music, parade and good old fashion fun!

Fall is amazing in colors, sights and sounds. The quaking of the bright golden Aspen leaves against the crisp blue Colorado sky and the bugling of the elk truly is spectacular! Hikers, kayakers, canoers, bikers, golfers and fly-fishers enjoy the beauty of the season, and our Fall Festival before the snow begins to fly.

As the snow begins to fall, Grand Lake becomes a winter wonderland. The wildlife heads for lower elevations, the frozen lakes welcome back the ice fishers, and the skating rink and trails are groomed for skaters, snowshoers, cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. Read less

Absolutely recommend this location! Staffing went above and beyond to help coordinate our wedding in July, 2016. They were in 'Constant Contact' and responded quickly to our every question. The facility and the view is breathtaking, and is located both inside as well as outdoors, which is great considering Colorado weather! Their assistance in set up as well as take down also went above and beyond what we anticipated. Finally, their pricing is really affordable. A couple of our wedding guests are looking into booking their own upcoming weddings there now, so that says a great deal about the Western Riviera Lakeside Weddings are.

Wow! What an amazing venue right on Grand Lake! The staff was amazing from the very beginning allowing us access to rooms that we rented for family, the event center itself so that we could plan where all of the vendors would be located, and in helping to put us in touch with the Wild Horse Catering company for all of the details. The rooms were rustic-chic, very clean and the views of the lake, proximity to town for shopping and dining simply spectacular!

The Western Riviera Lakeside Event Center is a great location to host a small(ish) wedding. We had 82 guests and the space was a perfect size. It might get too tight with more people, even though they say you can have 120. The view from the patio is beautiful and the space inside is very simple yet classy. You can really bring any vision to life in this space since it is white walls with wood floors and accents. I gave the venue a 4 in terms of flexibility because you must use the onsite caterer. This was not a problem for us because they were very good and were able to work with us. Out of the venues we spoke with in Grand County, they were the most responsive and professional. Once you sign the contract though with Western Riviera Lakeside Event center, you then only work through the caterer.

My husband and I wanted an intimate setting to share our vows with our family and friends. Grand Lake was the perfect place. The staff at the Western Riviera was knowledgeable and easy to work with; they helped us create a wonderful weekend for all. Our guests were transported across the picture perfect lake by boat to Point Park for our wedding ceremony where we said our vows looking out at Mt. Baldy. Everyone enjoyed a boat ride back across the lake to the beautiful event center while we were whisked away in our own private boat to toast our new life together. Then we rejoined our guests as they greeted us on the deck of the event center. What a delight to enjoy the deck, the view and the delicious food. There was plenty of room for dancing and celebrating. It was truly a fairytale come true!
