My husband and i just had our wedding at Lionscrest Manor on March 2nd. The staff blew us away with their services. We only had 7 weeks to plan our wedding and they made everything happened so smoothly! Emily made sure everyone was on point at all times and that we were always happy. The venue itself is so gorgeous, i still have family and friends telling me how much they really enjoyed everything. The inclusive package was a HUGE bonus for us, making it much easier on picking and choosing vendors. All of the vendors we did have through Lionscrest were just as amazing!!! We loved that they all had worked together many times before, so they knew exactly how things are done. We couldn't be happier with the way things turned out, everything was just perfect! We love the Lionscrest Manor!!!! :)
Lionscrest Manor is nothing short of wonderful. You won't regret choosing it as your wedding or event venue. I am admittedly a very selective individual and I have no complaints whatsoever. I have very high standards, and Lionscrest either met or exceeded literally all of my expectations.
The manor itself is exquisitely beautiful and with mountain views will impress your guests. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and very accommodating. They are extremely knowledgeable about the wedding industry and will make the entire thing as easy for you as possible. Lionscrest is family owned and operated, and are designed to be flexible to meet the needs of their clients. Their prices are fair and all associated costs are well worth it.
I've lost track of all the compliments I've received on our wedding. Months later, people are still raving about it and one friend even went so far as to say it was the best wedding he had ever been to, including his own.
We were so pleased with our choice in venue and are very grateful to the Lionscrest staff and vendors for all their help in making our wedding spectacular. You needn't look any further in your search for a venue that will give you everything you could ever want, need, or hope for on your wedding day.
Everything was so easy with the girls at Lionscrest!! I thought I would have to do a lot more as far as set up and such and pretty much everything was done when we got there! I would choose them again for any event!
The Lionscrest made wedding planning super easy and low stress. I loved everything about the place. We planned from out of state and the people working there were fabulous. Tatiana was exceptional. The absolute only thing wrong was the bar tender who was a grump. I had the most perfect day and everyone loved the Lionscrest.

Thank you so much for the kind words about our facility and service. It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding.
We have relayed your concerns about the bartender onto that catering company.
We wish you Matt many years of happiness!
We can not say enough wonderful things about the staff at Lionscrest Manor. We had such an amazing day. Thank you to Shannon who helped ensure that our day stayed on track and made sure we were where we needed to be throughout the event. This group always treated us with care and made us feel truly special. I was so relieved when Shannon was able to find some synthetic flower girl petals when I had forgotten to order some from the florist. It was the little touches that really helped me relax and know that I could trust that this event was in good hands. Thank you!!! Faith and Michael Cantrell
We were married at Lionscrest on 6/29/12 and it was absolutely perfect and beautiful! It was an outside wedding but started to drizzle about an hour before the ceremony. The staff was prepared to move it inside but the rain stopped right before the ceremony and they had every seat dry within minutes! The catering staff was phenomenal and my husband and I were served drinks and dinner without ever asking for it! The scenery was beautiful and the two levels were great so that cocktail hour was in a separate area. Absolutely the best choice we could have ever made! So easy to work with and all of their vendors were wonderful. We were told so many times that it was the most beautiful and fun wedding that people have ever been to which was the best thing to hear for us because we wanted people to have a good time since it was out of the city. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!!!
Lionscrest Manor staff and services are one of the best in Colorado! Complete professionalism and such a beautiful venue.
The staff at Lionscrest is awesome! The truly love hosting and planning weddings. From the planning up to our wedding day Lionscrest made it as stress-free as possible. I would definitely recommend this venue!
Lionscrest had great deals and gave us lots of personal attention. We didn't feel like we were just a customer, we were given care, courtesy and they helped us shape our dream wedding.
I LOVED Lionscrest for my wedding reception. They made everything really easy on us, including the cleanup and set up of the tables. We rented for the whole day, and they even let us show up early before the ceremony (which was at a church somewhere else) and take our pictures and get ready. I would definitely recommend them to anyone! As with all wedding venues, the price was higher than I would have liked, but I felt that the service and convenience we recieved were more than worth it!
Lionscrest was absolutely amazing! I loved that our package included decorations for the reception and they also included everything we brought in. They set up everything which really helped me relax. I had always wanted an outdoor wedding and there was a huge snowstorm just days before my big day and I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to have my dream wedding. Everyone at Lionscrest was really helpful and told me that they would plow the ceremony area if needed. Thankfully, Colorado brought in a 50 degree day and melted most of the snow for my wedding, but it also brought a lot of wind. Because of the wind we weren't able to set up anything out side (hot chocolate table, guest book area ect). But the staff at Lionscrest adjusted to the wind and made everything happen. They were amazing. My ceremony was amazing and my reception was everything I wanted it to be. I wouldn't change a thing about that day, my wedding was PERFECT thanks to Lionscrest.
Leona and all the staff at Lionscrest are amazing! Not only are the grounds & views beautiful, and the Manor lovely, but what really makes Lionscrest a dream venue are the staff. Leona and her staff literally will do whatever it takes to make the whole planning process pleasant/effortless, and make our special day a dream come true. There will always be little "gliches", but Leona and staff are prepared! I smile every time I think about our reception, and how wonderful that day was for all of us. I would recommend Lionscrest Manor highly if you want a day when your every want/need it looked after :-)
I am so grateful for finding Lionscrest Manor, our wedding turned out perfect and went without a hitch. The entire staff was nothing but kind and extremely knowledgeable. We went with the all inclusive package and all the vendors they suggested were fabulous and I would suggest them to all my family and friends. Our big day went just the way I imagined and even better due to their suggestions. I would recommend Lionscrest to anyone, to some people the money might be an issue, but it was all worth it in the end. Shannon worked very closely with us throughout the entire process, she is fabulous and answered all of our questions and had wonderful suggestions. I had a small problem with my dress, one of the bustles came apart and the train was dragging a bit too much, Shannon came to the rescue and in less than 5 minutes she had it fixed and no one even knew I had a problem. We are extremely grateful for everything the entire staff did for us. Not only is the staff wonderful, but the location and the manor itself is breathtaking. We were married in early September of 2011, the weather was gorgeous everything was still in bloom and the view from anywhere in Lionscrest is stunning. Thank you Lionscrest for making our special day nothing less than perfect!
This place was so wonderful. It was the first and last place we visited because it only took a few minutes to realize it was the one. Shannon with Lionscrest was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and really made our big day more than perfect. Their inclusive package option was also helpful in taking a lot of the work off of our plates in terms of finding vendors!

Thank you so much for your review and the kind words. Being a family business, it is very important to treat our couples as members of our extended wedding family. We wish you the best and look forward to you visiting us again, maybe for a 5 or 10 year anniversary picnic.
The staff was great they were very knoledgable and helpful. The person assigned to my wedding gave me her cell number for any day of questions or emergencies. They were patient with all my questions even when i called 4 times in one day! They are a little hard to get a hold of but do call you back when you leave a message!
The staff at Lionscrest Manor was excellent. Very professional and great at what they do. The location is amazing and the views are one of a kind, made for the most perfect day.
Lionscrest was wonderful! The venue is truly beautiful, and our guests commented and complimented us often on the choice. They were incredibly flexible for us - our ceremony was scheduled for 4 pm and the sky was threatening rain all day....the staff waited to ask us for our final "inside vs. outside" decision at 3:15 but nothing felt rushed at all. Our day-of site attendant was...there are no words. She was everywhere, guiding us, helping us, fetching any little thing we needed, all the while calm and collected. The only small complaints I have are this: Lionscrest is very expensive, and while I feel they are very worth it, I do think some of the rental items or upgrades become a bit much when you've spent so much money already (some I understand, others I think are gratuitous), and I really believe they should find a way to pave their parking lot to be such a formal venue. Also, we had dealt with one site coordinator almost exclusively...but found out at our rehearsal, only 2 days prior to our wedding, that we would have a different coordinator as ours was on vacation. I think we should have had a little more warning than that, but again, our day-of coordinator was amazing so it was not an issue in the end. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend using Lionscrest Manor!
Lionscrest Manor is amazing! From their professionalism to organization and attention to detail and gorgeous location, your wedding will be absolutely perfect.
Lionscrest Manor is one of the most professional businesses we have ever had the pleasure of working with. They were constantly helping us make our vision and dream wedding a reality. The are beyond friendly, and truly make you feel like part of their family. The strive for perfection and achieve a greater than imaginable result. We would recommend them over and over again and hope to have the opportunity to have another event there in the future.
Lionscrest is not only a stunningly beautiful venue, everyone that works there is an absolute joy. I was able to completely relax and enjoy me wedding knowing that they had everything taken care of. I could not have imagined a more wonderful and perfect place to get married.

We had an AMAZING wedding and we very well taken care of throughout the entire process. We would no doubt recommend Lionscrest to anyone looking for a gorgeous mountain wedding.
I had an absolute wonderful wedding thanks to the Lionscrest team and venue. I have gotten so many compliments from people saying it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to. Others said that the whole day flowed so well there wasn't a lull or confusion but the staff did a really great job of keeping the day moving with out constricting the events. Thank you to the Lionscrest team for making my wedding eerything I wanted and more!!!
The staff was extremely helpful and really helped out on our day. After the wedding we heard there were a few small issues, however we never knew about them the day of our wedding. The location itself was fantastic and we got nothing but praise for how beautiful the event was. We can't wait to see our pictures! The vendors they provided did a great job making everything run smoothly allowing our guests to have a wonderful time. The list of vendors provided really helped narrow our search and were all quality candidates! We have nothing but postive things to say about Lionscrest, it was the best day of our lives!
Lionscrest helped us have the wedding we always dreamed of. Our experience was unforgettable!!!!
Having my wedding at Lionscrest Manor was the best decisions I could have ever made. Everyone that works at LCM is fantastic and makes sure your day is exactly as you dream. I worked specifically with Wendy throughout the planning process, she was amazing and my hero on the night of the wedding. She was so calming and made sure I had everything I needed throughout the entire night. LCM truly makes you feel like you are the only wedding they are having during all of the planning. They never make you feel rushed and are always more then willing to answer any questions you might have.
I went with the all inclusive package for my wedding and it was wonderful. It really made the entire planning process so much easier. The list of vendors you get to choose from is a list of some of the best in the state. It was so nice to have a narrowed down list of people to choose from. All of my vendors were amazing (Alive Studios, European Florist, Greenspoint Catering, Rev Gene, Pure Sounds Productions) and all came together to make it the most amazing night of my life. It rained the evening of my wedding, but you would never know it from the photos and the effort that came from the staff. They did everything they could to get things organized to allow me to take photos before the ceremony while the rain was still very light. There are photos of my wedding on their site, and you would never know it was a rainy day.
If you are thinking about LCM as your wedding location, just do it! You won't be disappointed...it will be the best night of your life!

We could not agree more, the photos from this wedding really speak to the amazing day that Ali and Doug created with their team of vendors. Check out the blog we made for this event and we are sure you will agree that despite the gray clouds there was an abundance of warmth and color for all to take in.
This place is THE BEST. Great view, amazing estate, perfect for any Colorado wedding. The staff is unbelievably efficient, nice, and professional. Our wedding went off without a hitch while the skies opened and gave us a foot of snow! WOW! Thanks Lionscrest!!
Beautiful venue in the mountains, but not too far from Boulder/Denver. The staff are absolutely amazing - very professional and know what they are doing. They have EVERYTHING covered. I went with the all-inclusive package, which made the planning much easier since they have a list of preferred vendors to choose from - the best in the biz. I would recommend Lionscrest to anyone, but be warned they book about a year out and the summer is more expensive.
Lionscrest Manor is one of the most beautiful locations in the northern Colorado area. The staff is family and they have been holding events for years. They are experts at what they do and are really easy and fun to work with. I really appreciated their professionalism and the fun they brought to my event. We also had a perfect fall day so we were able to take advantage of the fabulous scenery! I cannot imagine going anywhere else!
Our wedding at Lionscrest was absolutely amazing. We were able to relax and enjoy our day because the staff took care of everything for us and made us feel completely comfortable. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!
The staff at Lionscrest was a dream to work with. At first, I was apprehensive about the price of the venue, but after my event I thought it was worth every penny! My event coordinator at Lionscrest was so calm, supportive, helpful, and professional. She got everything put out exactly how I wanted with ease and it was gorgeous. I felt no stress the day of the wedding because it was clear to me that they had everything under control. I had a guest come really late to the reception and within moments they had brought him food and a drink because he missed dinner. They were just so professional. And before the event, everyone was very helpful, flexible, and kind. I did so much of the wedding planning and decorating myself and it was awesome to have the staff there to help bring all those details to life. My husband and I joke that we want to get married at Lionscrest every year for our anniversary because it was so awesome.
My wedding day was perfect because of Lionscrest Manor! They took care of everything and made the entire day run as smooth as it possibly could. The entire staff was great to work with, and I couldn't have asked for anything more in a venue; not to mention how beautiful it was!
Lionscrest Manor is a BEAUTIFUL location. We wanted to be married some where with great views and a good inside option incase of rain. LCM does offer breathtaking views as well as great back up locations inside the venu in the case of rain. Everyone who worked with us was pleasant , kinda and very helpful. Everything went very well, there were a few little details that were over looked but nothing horrible. I would reccommend this venu to anyone looking, but with caution regarding the price. For how much we spent we felt a little more should have been included. Either by time available or linens provided. We also recieved a few comments from guests after the wedding about the chairs, which are the basic resin chairs. These comments came from people who knew hoe much we had paid to be there and couldn't believe you had to pay $1.00 per person extra for better chairs. Just be careful with the pricing, other than that it's the *perfect* location and company for any wedding.
We were very happy with our choice of wedding venue. The staff went out of our way to help our vision of what we wanted our wedding to be come to fruition (despite rain on the actual wedding day), and you can't ask for a more beautiful setting. We wanted elegance combined with an outdoorsy/Colorado feel, and that's what we found at Lionscrest.
We wanted a Colorado outside garden wedding and we got exactly that with LCM. The venue is so beautiful, everyone loved it!
The staff at LCM the day of were so helpful - no need for a day of planner...they take care of everything!
Everyone had such a great time and complimented on how well coordinated and how smoothly everything ran!
Lionscrest Manor helped my husband and I throw an absolutely perfect wedding. The coordinator and staff were so professional and attentive throughout the months preceding our wedding, that it was as if we had hired a private wedding coordinate. Shannon did an exceptional job directing our wedding, she made sure to ask in advance of any special needs, and accommadated all of our unique requests. I couldn't have asked for a more romantic day!
Thank you for being so generous with us and allowing us to have such a beautiful wedding on a budget!
This was one of the most beautiful venues. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful and went out of their way to make our wedding day the most perfect day.
This is a very beautiful venue for a wedding and a family run business.
This place was amazing.
Lionscrest was the perfect location for our wedding! The staff was wonderful to work with and the location is gorgeous. Attention to detail is obvious, and our day was perfect! Highly recommend!
This venue created the place for our dream wedding! The only downfall was that we had to book them a year in advance. So if you've got a specific date you want to get married on and not a lot of time this place probably wouldn't work. We were able to visit the venue several times before the day of the wedding and were given several options about tables, dishes and linens that best fit our budget. The day of the wedding they had an assigned staff member that made sure everyone was where they were suppose to be and made sure things ran smoothly. It's a beautiful place with options for indoor or outdoor weddings, very elegant.
Reception for one daughter held here in April of 2006. Lovely location and easy people to work with.
We have been photographing at Lionscrest Manor for over 10 years. The views and backdops surrounding Lionscrest are like none other. Shooting these endless views is a photographers dream. The owners are a wonderful family to work with. Their attention to detail and thoroughness make this one of our favorite venues to work at. In addition to being a vendor at Lionscrest we were also patrons. My husband and I were married at Lionscrest Manor 11 years ago - it was just as wonderful of an experience as a bride!
An amazing wedding experience with a family that takes great care of you. Location in Lyons is ideal with mountain views yet conveniently located close to Boulder. Lionscrest Manor is wonderful and we highly recommend them!
My favorite venue. Very private, spectacular scenery anytime of year and a amazing professional staff
who really care about their clients events. Who could ask for more? Lionscrest has it all!

I have had the pleasure of coordinating weddings at Lionscrest Manor for the past 15 years. It is always a joy to work there. When my daughter and her fiance decided to get married close to Boulder Lionscrest Manor was the obvious choice!
I have worked with Lionscrest Manor for 14 years and see this as one of the most perfect, elegant wedding venues in Colorado. Our own daugther was married at Lionscrest Manor and we could not have imagined a more beautiful experience. The location is absolutely gorgeous.

I have worked with Lionscrest Manor for many years. I love that it is family owned and family run. Each and every one of the family members treats you just like part of the family. They run the business with integrity and professionalism. It has some of the most stunning views around. I never get tired of the drive there and the view from there. If you want a real sense of the mountains without having to travel the distance, then Lionscrest Manor is a great choice. I think it is an ideal location for anyone.

It is the top of the line in my book. I so very much enjoy doing weddings there. I know that what ever happens they will handle it. The event will go smooth and the couple will have a wonderful special day.
A fantastic atmosphere and perfect for a photo booth! We love the personal attention the ladies of Lionscrest give to their clients. We certainly do not see that everywhere we go! Great job so far and we look forward to providing booths to future clients.
