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 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 restored and moved to its present site on the Red Rock formations at the entrance to the foothills. Read less

Willow Ridge Manor offers so much for couples that it is really a no-brainer for a venue. The location is beautiful with rolling hills close by, spruce trees planted on the grounds, a built-in ceremony arch with small stone table and a wonderful manor house for elegance. Both the ceremony and reception can be held at the same property with plenty of parking for up to 75 guests. There is a large bridal suite and a separate grooms lounge for preparations, dressing, flower pinning and personal photos with pleasing furniture, proper stands with hooks for clothing and bureaus to help with supplies and accessories. The manor house entry, sitting room and ballroom areas have a pleasing flow for guests and there's even a balcony deck overlooking the ceremony staging area where often photos are taken after ceremonies. Gregory and Pati, property manager and event designer respectively provided excellent service, value and professionalism. We had many compliments from our guests on the ease, elegance and ambiance of the location.

Willow Ridge Manor is such an amazing venue for weddings. I have been to several weddings that have been held here and I am more impressed each time I visit. The scenery is unmatched which provides an unforgettable backdrop for you photos. Gregory, the owner and manager, is absolutely amazing, and any bride would be lucky to work with him. He is charming, professional and so helpful for each and every aspect of a bride's day.
I am extremely grateful to Gregory and his staff for taking such great care of my best friend on the most amazing and memorable day of her life.

When my husband and I walked into Willow Ridge Manor for the first time, we instantly knew it was the right venue for our Colorado wedding. The facility itself is sweet, historic, charming, and classy. Besides the wonderful venue, it is the staff of Willow Ridge along with the catering company Lifestyle who make the Manor a top notch wedding venue.

Through out our planning process, Gregory (the owner) was always gracious, flexible and welcoming when our families came out to visit and wanted to see our wedding site just one more time. He also, during the rehearsal and wedding day, advised us and our bridal party on how to best to present ourselves. He made sure we would look good during the processional, ceremony and photos. This was priceless information and extremely helpful.

We had a fantastic experience with Lifestyle Catering and had the fortunate opportunity to work with Brooke, the event designer. Not only was Brooke very personable, but she was also extremely professional. Her background and knowledge in event coordinating allowed my husband and I to feel at ease over our reception. The menu selection is wide and interesting and we were able to tweak our selections to match our needs.
Our head captain for the night was Lawrence-a true and gracious professional.

A few special touches about the staff and Willow Ridge:

- Our cocktail hour began while we finished our photos and one of the staff members create a plate of appetizers for us.
-Our outside ceremony was to begin at 6pm, but Gregory knew to wait until a small storm past through. We were only slightly behind and ended up having the most amazing photos and ceremony weather because of it!
- Every staff member was kind and helpful
- I don't know how our favors, flowers and various other tables were set up, but they were and they looked amazing!
- We were able to bring in our own wine and beer, which was a huge cost savor for us!
-The staff had everything down like clockwork-well wedding clockwork as there are always various delays due to wedding guests that occur. They were fantastic!

Thank you Willow Ridge and Lifestyle for giving us such a beautiful day and hosting all of our guests! We along with our friends and family had a lovely evening.

This was the perfect venue for my wedding. It was just last weekend and I am still grinning. Gregory, the owner, was so kind the day of and gently reminded everyone I was the bride and needed to get upstairs and change, leaving him in charge of everything downstairs. The guys' room is really nice, the ceremony views are gorgeous, and it's a mountain wedding without the altitude for out of town guests and the crazy mountain price. It also photographed beautifully, especially the full-length mirror in my room. There was a steamer upstairs which really helped and plenty of room inside for older guests to relax after the wedding. The staff was so nice and proactively helped me change things around since it was too hot for an outdoor social hour. Everyone loved the location and I would pick it again in a heartbeat.

Gregory with Willow Ridge Manor was a HOOT!!! We just LOVED working with him. He made this so low stress that it was hard to believe I was planning my wedding. His moment to shine was the day of. He was the coordinator for the day, making sure that I did not accidentally run into my Groom, and make sure everything was on schedule. This manor is beyond beautiful, and that is why it was my must have venue! Gregory does a great job of keeping the manor is tip top condition while keeping its antique feel. Such an elegant beauty that made decorating a cinch. I highly recommend Willow Ridge to ANYBODY who wants that mountain feel, and still be only 20 minutes from Denver. Well done Gregory!

We got married here on St. Patrick's Day this year. Our photographer commented that it was the best place she had ever seen for pictures in the Denver area! The place is absolutely beautiful, and is perfectly set up for a great party! It is BYOB, and the catering company they work with was awesome! The outdoor ceremony area is just gorgeous, and was perfect for a spring wedding. Gregory and the rest of the crew were really easy to work with, always answered the phone if I had questions, and were quick to help me solve any problems I had!

My daughter was married at Willow Ridge Manor in October and the entire event was flawless. Gregory was so friendly, and easy to work with; he made the planning and execution of the event extremely easy. We worked with Jay at LifeStyles Catering and the extensive menu options were incredible. I got nothing but compliments from guests all night that the venue was gorgeous and the food delicious. I would definitely recommend this venue and catering combination to anyone interested in hosting an event.

Willow Ridge Manor was the second venue my husband and I visited while we were beginning to plan our wedding, and we knew right away that this was where we wanted to have our wedding. The owner, Gregory, was polite, professional, and had an answer for every question that we had. When we needed to contact Gregory, he was always very quick to return phone calls and emails. The interior of Willow Ridge Manor is beautiful, with a spacious dining room, dance floor, and patio area. The bridal suite was incredibly spacious, with its own bathroom and vanity area, and the room for the groom was very nice as well. The exterior of the property is beautifully landscaped and cleaned, and Gregory works very hard to keep it looking at its best. All of the guests at our wedding had a great time, and we have Gregory and the rest of the staff at Willow Ridge Manor to thank for that.

Willow Ridge Manor is a wonderful place for a wedding! Gregory, who is the owner, makes everything very easy and straight forward. It is a gorgeous venue set in the foothills and not only has beautiful views, but is beautiful on the inside as well! There is a spacious bridal suite, as well as a space for the groom to get ready. We were married outside on the red rock patio, which was incredible. We would definitely pick this venue if we did it over again!
