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.

We will not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of our activities or operations.

My parents, husband, and I searched and searched for the perfect venue for our wedding for about a month and a half. We visited several sites including the Clock Tower downtown and the Manor House in Littleton but were unable to find a venue the met all of our needs. Needless to say we were getting extremely frustrated when my father remembered that he had been to a wedding a Willow Ridge Manor and that it was really nice. I made and appointment with Gregory the very next day. We fell in love with Willow Ridge the minute we pulled into the parking lot. We loved the location right in the midst of the Red Rocks and the vintage feel inside the manor. The ceremony site was lovely with the alter surrounded by beautiful evergreens. We appreciated that we were able to purchase and provide our own liquor as many of the venues we looked into had their own bar plan (which would have been very expensive). Finally, Gregory is so wonderful! His sense of humor and charm made us feel welcome and we are so happy we were able to work with him. Our wedding was an amazing experience for us and our guests and we couldn't have pulled it off without Willow Ridge Manor. If you are looking for a venue that highlights everything Colorado has to offer, look into Willow Ridge Manor. I am positive you will not be disappointed.

Gregory was amazing and made the entire process stress free. We ended up renting the venue all day and it was a life saver! We did our hair and makeup at the venue and set everything up during the day so nothing was rushed. Gregory timed the ceremony perfectly right as the rain clouds parted.

My wife and I booked Willow Ridge Manor prior to being engaged because we both fell in love with the venue. It was the third place we looked at and we wish that it was our first place to look because it would have saved us time! It was less expensive to rent WRM for the entire day (8am-midnight) than it was to rent other venues from 4pm to midnight.

Gregory answered all of our question from the day of the booking and everyday up to the wedding with professionalism and promptness. I would recommend this venue to anyone getting married on the Front Range.

We got a bunch of complements on the choice of our venue. Most of our guests from Colorado mentioned they had been at a wedding or other event at WRM previously.

Thank you for making our day wonderful!

Gregory was by far the kindest and easiest person to work with. They were extremely flexible with my husband and I when we had issues with his deployment dates. After all of the stress my family and I put ourselves through for the wedding, I wouldn't get back and change a thing for the world. Willow Ridge Manor made all of my dreams, and my husbands dreams come true.

I had the pleasure of working with Gregory and his staff as I supported my friend's daughter on her wedding day. The first thing I will say is how comfortable the entire vibe was from the moment we arrived to begin setting up, and all through the evening. The staff was very friendly and professional. Everyone always had a smile and an answer to any question. Gregory was delightful and funny and set the relaxed tone for the day. The food was great from the passed appetizers to the great buffet of chicken and steak and roasted veges and wild rice. All provided by LifeStyles catering. It was like having a wedding at your own home! Really a great experience! All this and a the beautiful surroundings and views. I would highly recommend hosting any event here. Thanks Gregory and staff. ;) -PJ

Willow Ridge Manor is the PERFECT venue for a wedding and reception! We received so many comments from our guests that it was such a beautiful venue and the staff took such good care of everyone. Gregory is absolutely amazing! He is such a man of excellence and ensured every detail was taken care of. We used many of the vendors Gregory recommended and we were so thankful as everyone had the standard of excellence that Gregory does and made every step of the process go smoothly! You will not be disappointed with this venue; Patti with Lifestyles Catering (the company Gregory uses with his venue) also did a truly amazing job. The food was DELICIOUS, the presentation beautiful, and the value absolutely worth it! We felt so blessed to be able to have our wedding and reception at Willow Ridge Manor. Thank you Gregory and all your staff that helped make our wedding be the most amazing day and beyond our greatest expectations!!

Willow Ridge Manor, Gregory and Lifestyles Catering were all fantastic. We could not have been more pleased with every aspect of our experience with everyone with whom we worked at Willow Ridge.

First, the venue is superb, both for the wedding ceremony and for the reception. We had a Friday evening wedding and we couldn't have asked for better weather. The "red rocks" adjacent to the ceremony area is great for pictures (as is the interior and exterior of the manor itself) and while the wedding party was doing the picture thing, our guests were able to enjoy the outdoor bar on the lower level near the manor. The manor itself was everything we could have wanted for the reception. We had between 90 and 100 people in attendance and the configuration of the tables, the bar and the outside deck were perfect. In addition, the upstairs bride/bridesmaids and groom/groomsmen rooms were just right for the pre-ceremony preparation.

Second, Gregory, who owns Willow Ridge, is a great person. We enjoyed meeting and getting to know him. He's a total professional, does everything to put the bride and groom at ease during the process of preparing for the wedding ceremony and reception and the day of the event, he makes sure that everything runs smoothly. We cannot compliment Gregory enough on the fine work that he does as the host of the venue.

Third, Lifestyles Catering is equally great. The food and the service was fantastic. We had guests tell us that it was the best food they had at a wedding reception! The staff was always there to provide great service throughout the evening and they are the friendliest folks that you will ever find. Again, they did everything to make things go smoothly.

We have had many compliments on our wedding and all of those compliments included kudos for Willow Ridge Manor.

We highly recommend Willow Ridge Manor, Gregory and Lifestyles Catering to every bride and groom.

I got married at Willow Ridge Manor in July & it was absolutely beautiful. When my husband and I started to look at wedding venues I almost overlooked Willow Ridge Manor. Upon visiting the space I was able to see the potential of hosting both a ceremony & reception entirely outside.Gregory was wonderful & easy to work with and was excited to help us be the first couple to host both the reception and ceremony outdoors. To say that it was a huge undertaking might be an understatement, I am an event planner so I had a lot of knowledge going into planning this event but I was also planning from out of state which made things complicated. Since they had never done this type of event before there was a lot of things that were not standard knowledge such as the dimensions of the outdoor space or the amount of time it would take to turn the space over. Gregory was great about allowing myself & my vendors access to the space to take measurements or just look around & get a feel for the event flow. Gregory is just the man that you want there the day of your wedding, he has worked on hundreds of weddings before & knows just what to do. In the end we did end up having a few things go awry with the wedding but Gregory was on top of it! He jumped in with a camera to take some photos at the beginning of the day and then stepped in to help us deal with the authorities at the end of the night when one of our guests put on an unsanctioned firework show that caused a small brush fire.I really could not have been happier with Gregory & how he handled the day, stood by us as clients & really worked hard to make sure that our event ran smoothly! we could not have picked a more beautiful venue. http://blog.aventuraphotovideo.com/aurielle-daves-wedding-at-willow-ridge-manor-in-morrison-colorado/
