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

He handled the rehearsal for us and all the details on the wedding day with humor and professionalism. I have another daughter and hope she chooses Willow Ridge Manor, it was perfect!

We just got married at Willow Ridge on March 12, 2011 and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to get married at and to have our reception. Gregory is a wonderful person to work with and I would recommend him to anybody. He knows exactly what he's doing and isn't too overbearing and he is extremely helpful throughout the whole process. It means a lot to a bride when He too cries for you (as he did right before the ceremony began and he kissed me on the cheek)!!!
I recommend Willow Ridge Manor to any bride and groom who are looking to have a smaller to medium sized wedding nestled against the foothills!

This place was absolutely AMAZING!!!!! I have no regrets about anything from our wedding. We were married on Jan. 16, 2011, outside on patio in the snow. It was beautiful, not too cold, and perfect for pictures.

Gregory, the owner, is just a fantastic guy who knows what he's doing.

Lifestyles Catering was exceptionally good, and Kari and the crew did everything they could to make us happy... literally! (Kari held my crying baby niece during the ceremony so my sister could watch.) The food was so delicious and also was very well presented.

It is just such a beautiful place, and it made my dreams come true. Good prices as well!!!

This place is amazing. Over 100 of our guests were from out of town. This was the perfect venue to give our out-of-town guests a taste of Colorado. One of our guests commented that no one would ever be able to top this venue. Frankly, I think WRM is better than having a mountain wedding. The place is amazing, unique, beautiful, and classy. Everyone is still raving about this venue. Also, Gregory, the owner, is extremely helpful and accomodating.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HAVING YOUR WEDDING AT WILLOW RIDGE MANOR!

Absolutely wonderful wedding and everyone was so helpful and very organized. Please check this place out, it's so beautiful. We looked at many places in Colorado - Estes Park and by far I loved this one the best. I planned this wedding from Houston, TX but with the help of Gregory and Kari Lilley at Lifestyles, I really didn't have to plan much. Gregory, the wedding planner at Willowidge, gave me a list of vendors and I went solely by that list (not meeting any of them) and they were each and everyone PERFECT. I am very picky too! But, even the rehearsal was very well planned by them.

BOOK EARLY though. I booked a year in advance and only one Saturday left in the two months that I wanted it.
It's nice too because everything is provided within the costs. Plus, you can bring in your own alchohol which really drives down the costs.

I can not say enough about our experience at Willow Ridge Manor in Morrison. When we were first looking for a venue for my daughter Whitney's wedding we were overwhelmed by all the choices that are out there. Whitney and Nate were clear on a few details that were important to them. First they wanted the ceremony and reception all in one place and they wanted only one event going on at the same time. We checked out a total of 5 different venues with Willow Ridge being the last. As the line in the movie Jerry McGuire goes "You had me with hello".
Gregory Sargowicki the owner and wedding consultant immediately made us feel welcome and we were charmed by his amazing personality. We covered the things that were important to Nate and Whitney and Gregory assured us he could meet all those details. Then as we took a tour through the manor and then outside the views of the mountains and surrounding areas were breathtaking! We had found our perfect venue. As the months passed and we planned the day the mother of the groom and I had compiled a list of questions regarding specific details we wanted to make sure would be handled. Once again all our fears were immediately put to rest after meeting with Gregory. Today, the day after the wedding I am still in awe of how perfect the wedding was. Gregory's assistant Jay came to our rescue several times as one of the bridesmaids dresses zipper broke and he himself sewed the dress together. Then he ended up having to help us bustle Whitney's dress. He was there for the entire evening getting us drinks and completely engaged with every detail. Then comes the service staff, starting with Jessica our captain. She and her wait and bar staff were amazing. The plates and glasses were cleared without having to ask and they were so attentive to our every need. I would highly recommend Willow Ridge Manor to everyone I promise you will not be disappointed. Thanks, Kristie Burnham

We celebrated the wedding of my daughter on 6/4/10. As mother of the bride I could not be more happy with Gregory (the proprietor) and Willow Ridge Manor! My daughter & I looked for wedding venues via the internet and in person for several weeks before running across WRM. After visiting WRM and talking with Gregory, my daughter had no doubt that this was the place for her wedding. Gregory was so personable and helpful in all aspects. The cost of the venue was very reasonable when compared to other venues we had toured. While my daughter & her fiance live in Denver, we are from out of town and her fiance's family were from out of state. Gregory provided us with a list of vendors and gave us his knowledge of working with them in the past which made decisions so much easier for us since I live out of town. With the exception of cake & florist vendors, all the vendors we used were listed and recommend by Gregory. We were extremely satisfied with ALL of the vendors. From our experience, I highly recommend Lifestyles Catering, DJ on Demand, and Holiday Inn Lakewood. Lifestystles Catering was amazing to work with, provided great communication, especially the two weeks prior to the event, and went out of their way to provide services for us that were above and beyond what we had expected. The took care of every detail which made the day of the wedding much less stressful and much more enjoyable. The food was exceptional and I received many compliments from our guests as to the professionalism and great service of the staff. DJ on Demand provided a fun and energetic atmosphere that had all our guests on their feet and dancing and all said they really enjoyed the music selection. I can't say enough about Holiday Inn Lakewood! This place came highly recommended by Gregory and I agree! Holiday Inn Lakewood was over the top friendly, accomodating, and so easy to work with. We had a large number of rooms booked for wedding guests and everyone was so pleased with the facility. I worked with guest services and since we had so many coming from out of town and state and not familiar with Denver, the hotel guest services suggested using a banquet room there for the rehearsal dinner, which we did! The food, staff, service, and just the whole hotel facility itself was amazing! It goes without saying how much the complimentary shuttle provided by the hotel for all wedding guests to and from WRM for the wedding was appreciated by all that took advantage of it. All our guests were very impressed with their stay there and complimented on how friendly and accomodating the staff was. Thank you Gregory for recommending all these very fine vendors and Jay for stepping in and being so professional, knowledgeable, and going over the top to make us all comfortable and stress free minutes before the ceremony... you rock!
