Sitting high in the foothills overlooking spectacular red rock formations and city lights, Willow Ridge Manor is an elegant facility for your wedding day. Willow Ridge Manor is a dramatic setting for your wedding ceremony as well as your reception. You can have a candlelit ceremony in the Grand Ballroom or an outdoor wedding in your choice of two stunning locations. One is the upper deck off the Grand Ballroom. The other location is on the lower deck with the dramatic red rock formations as your backdrop.

The original Mansion dates back to the turn of the 20th century. In 1915 extensive remodeling was completed and the home stood as the stately manor for Kendalvue Farm, located on Bear Creek and present day Kipling. Former residents include the family of U.S. Senator Henry Teller and Watrous Redfield, inventor of the Redfield gun sight.

In 1989 the manor was moved to its present site on the Red Rock formations at the entrance to the foothills and updated to the Event Center that can be seen today.

Willow Ridge Manor was the perfect place for our wedding. Sitting amongst the Foothills of Morrison, the location for us represented both our love of the mountains and our love of our city. The manor provides a beautiful outside area for the ceremony, an outdoor cocktail hour section that my guests raved about, and an elegant interior with walls that open up to the outside. We loved how the dressing areas were so spacious. I can’t say enough wonderful things about working with Gregory and Lawrence. During our planning we unexpectedly had to find a new caterer and Gregory was so attentive and helpful in providing multiple alternatives. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, from the first day we walked in to Willow Ridge Manor to our amazing wedding night! I highly recommend Willow Ridge Manor as a venue for your event.

I just had my wedding at WRM and it was the best venue I could have ever picked for so many reasons!

1. I rented it out for the full day (which is an option everyone should do) as the additional cost is minor in comparison to the value that you get. My bridesmaids and I were able to show up at 8:30 to start our hair and makeup in the huge bridal suite upstairs. Being there so early, I was able to relax and get ready without worrying about transportation, vendors showing up on time, etc. This also made getting things home after the event super easy, because all my belongings were already at the venue upstairs in the suite.

2. Gregory is a wedding expert extrordinaire. He coordinates the whole thing and takes down all your vendor numbers so he can call them if they show up late. He also helped organize our processional and told each couple when to start walking out for the ceremony. Having him there allowed me to plan the whole wedding myself without having to hire a day of coordinator or wedding planner. Not to mention, he steamed my entire dress for me the day of when I was worrying about wrinkles. Talk about a hands on guy!!

3. The ceremony and reception are in the same place! How convenient for your guests! Even better, you get the outdoor beauty of the ceremony with the comfortable atmosphere of an indoor reception.

4. Mountain wedding close to the city. We had tons of out of town guests, so making them drive up to Vail was not an option, however we still want the Colorado mountain feel. This venue was just that!

Thank you Gregory!!!

We were married at Willow Ridge Manor on July 2nd, 2015. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue for our special day. Everything was perfect and seamless on that day (and if it wasn't, I didn't know). I believe a lot of that had to do with Gregory. He was always available for us to talk to and answer any questions we had (big or small). He was a great stress relief on the day of and made everyone laugh a lot. All of our guests and family loved him and we're all still exchanging great stories about him. One of my flower girls (2 1/2 years old) kept commenting on how I looked like a princess that day and that she wanted to be a princess and find a prince. She walked up to Gregory before the ceremony and asked if he would be her prince. He accepted and that made her day. That was a moment I will never forget.
We had a lot of out of town guests from Illinois and they kept commenting on how beautiful the ceremony and venue was. It was a relief to know that they traveled so far and weren't disappointed. If you are looking for a venue that is beautiful in so many ways and a staff that will take care of your every desire then look no further than Willow Ridge.

Willow Ridge Manor provides personalized old world charm that you simply won't find at the larger, more commercial venues! This beautiful Victorian-style manor provided the intimate setting that we were looking for, and over the months of preparation, the owner Gregory became a trusted friend, offering (never pushing) sage advice to make our wedding day the best it could possibly be! Majestic red rock views surround the outdoor ceremony & cocktail hour sites; the bright window-laden ballroom comfortably fit our 60 guests with plenty of room for table hopping and dancing. Oversized dressing rooms and bathrooms provided privacy, stress-free preparation, and lovely photo opps. What more could anyone want? Highly recommend!

We recently used Willow Ridge Manor for our daughter’s wedding. It was simply a perfect day. Gregory the owner is whom you will deal with from the beginning. Gregory is a professional and excellent salesman for his establishment. I expected the salesmanship and Gregory answered each of my questions and concerns completely. What I feel sets him apart from others is that he backs up the salesmanship with results. From the day we signed a contract with them up until the day of the wedding he never failed to answer a question or solve a problem. During the wedding rehearsal he orchestrated the entrance and exit of both the guests and the wedding party to best take advantage of the weddings setting and the bride and groom’s wishes. On the day of the wedding Gregory was in complete control and made sure that no one in the wedding party had to deal with any problems or issues during their preparation. Since there were several issues that did occur his experience took care of them all. In my opinion he actually produced much more than I could ever have expected. Willow Ridge manner is tastefully decorated and well maintained. It actually feels more like a home than an event center; the outdoor setting and views are among the best in the Denver area. I received many compliments from guests who said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I couldn’t agree more.

We had our daughter's wedding at Willow Ridge Manor the middle of May (rainy season). Gregory was watching the weather reports the entire time & had us start the outdoor ceremony early to beat the rain. He was very receptive to suggestions & his experience with wedding venues was extremely valuable. We would highly recommend Willow Ridge Manor for any event.

Wouldn't consider another location! Gregory is PHENOMENAL. We had a smaller, intimate wedding with 50 guests, this venue was perfect for it. Enough space for everyone to feel comfortable, and yet not so much space that we felt like it was ever too big. It has an authentic vintage feel, yet the outdoor ceremony site is easy to fit for all ceremony types. Gregory lovingly directed the guests, procession and it was seamless, flawless and lovely. He takes the time to get to know his couples, their needs, and you can tell that this isn't just a job for him, he puts is heart and care into every detail. I ( the bride) was stressing out over the little details, (as brides tend to do) and the morning of, Gregory made sure everything was set up as desired, and all I had to do was show up and be the beautiful bride- stress free! Loved every minute working with him.
