Church Ranch Event Center was the third venue we visited when we started to look at venues and we knew right away that we wanted to get married there. From its’ beautiful grounds to the rustic and cozy indoor space, it felt like a mountain venue without actually having to go up to the mountains! On top of that, the staff is outstanding. We first met with Eric, who was so genuine in everything he did leading up to our big day. From there, Madi handled all of the details to make our day exactly what we wanted, and finally, Ari handled our day of seamlessly. As a team, everyone went above and beyond to make our day as special as it was and I am so grateful for that. CREC is a hidden gem in Denver and we were so fortunate to come across it. In fact, numerous guests asked us how we found it…everyone loved it! I cannot say enough great things about this venue and its’ team. We truly had the wedding of our dreams!
Mitchell, Madi and the rest of the team were absolutely amazing! They made our wedding perfect! They listened to our every desire for our wedding and made it happen! The venue itself is so beautiful! IT is the perfect place to have a wedding!
My husband and I are both Colorado natives, and I had always dreamed of a mountain wedding. When selecting our wedding venue, our first visit was to a beautiful mountain venue. We then we went to Church Ranch Event Center (CREC) the following weekend. Before going to CREC, we thought it would be our Plan ‘B’, if a mountain venue wouldn’t work for whatever reason. Well CREC became our Plan ‘A’ soon after we met with Mitchell and took the tour. It has a very mountain-Colorado feel, with the gorgeous gardens and the beautiful rustic indoor space. We didn’t even want to look anywhere else. We fell in love with Church Ranch Event Center, and all the options they had to offer.
We would highly recommend using their preferred vendors. It definitely made the whole process so much easier. We compared a few of their vendors with others and the pricing was definitely in line. Since Church Ranch Event Center referred them, we also felt confident they would do a good job.
Our coordinator Madi was wonderful. She was patient with all of our questions, and had some really good suggestions.
The three comments we heard over and over again from our guest were: 1. How beautiful our wedding was. We did very minimal decorations, so it was mostly the venue itself. 2. How good the food was. Again, we used their caterer-so good! 3. How fun our wedding was. That kind of has to do with a mix of things and the mood you set, but we would definitely recommend the photo booth, it was a huge hit. We just loved our wedding! Thank you Mitchell, Madi and everyone at Church Ranch Event Center.
My son and daughter-in-law were married at Church Ranch Event Center on July 14. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience! Mitchell and his staff were extremely helpful, professional, and accommodating. When rain delayed the start of the wedding, the staff did an exceptional job of adjusting and putting Plan B into action! It was a pleasure to work with Church Ranch Event Center and I would highly recommend it as a venue for a wedding or another large-scale event. Well done!
All of the staff went above and beyond in making our wedding day and everything leading up to it beyond amazing!
I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you so much for everything you did for us to make our wedding day so unbelievable! You guys were amazing to work with, especially the day of, and we had SEVERAL guests come up to us and say that ours was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! They couldn’t stop raving about how amazing and beautiful Church Ranch Event Center was, and I just wanted to say another huge thank you for making it look so incredible for us. You created an unforgettable time for us!
My husband and I got married at Church Ranch Event Center on 4/2/17! Choosing Church Ranch was one of the first decisions we made when planning our wedding, and one of the best! We only looked at two venues (though I had researched countless) – Church Ranch was the first and we knew it would be hard to beat. We looked at another, just to be diligent, but we knew when we sat down to compare the two that there really was no comparison. Church Ranch had everything we were looking for. The outdoor space is breathtaking, and we lucked out with gorgeous spring weather and were able to have our ceremony and cocktail hour outside (not to mention our wedding photos are amazing in part due to Church Ranch’s landscaping). The reception hall is also beautiful. It was big enough to accommodate our 125 guests (and could have easily accommodated more had all of our invitees attended), and we especially loved the high ceiling and the twinkle lights as they gave our reception an open and romantic feel. The bar is also a spectacular sight and the way the rest of the venue is decorated is perfect. We really didn’t have to provide that much additional decor, as the venue just stands out on its own and the staff has decorated the other spaces in such a lovely way. Table centerpieces are already partially planned for you with the inclusion of the goblets and the LED candles for them with the facility rental. We also were so grateful that we didn’t have to coordinate table, chair or linen rentals, and that we didn’t have to worry about creating a backup plan in the event of inclement weather – the staff was prepared to move our ceremony and cocktail hour inside if the need arose. But if all that weren’t enough, the staff is truly amazing. I honestly don’t think that our wedding would have been what it was or what we wanted it to be without Eric, Madi, and the incredible staff at Church Ranch Event Center. We are so grateful to them and they will always have a special place in our hearts!
My husband and I couldn’t be more pleased with the service, the venue and the overall feel. It was a dream come true thanks to Mitchell, Madi, Erick and the rest of the staff. They all do a great job and truly take care of all your needs and assure that your dream will come true and a decent price. Wouldn’t choose another venue and would do it all over again!!
I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for this beautiful venue and amazing staff. From the very first phone call, Mitchell was so helpful and kind and I knew he knew what he was talking about. Everyone was so accommodating, kind, professional and friendly. Mitchell and his whole crew made me feel at home, always taking the time to make sure that everything was okay and they really listened to my vision. When I arrived on the day, everything was set up perfectly, the room was gorgeous and the staff was there to making sure that we were 100% taken care of. Everything went so perfectly, the grounds are gorgeous; the venue is incredible and photographs so well. I cannot thank Mitchell and his team enough and will continue to recommend this venue to anyone who will listen. Our day was more perfect than we could have ever even imagined!!
We had an absolutely amazing experience at the Church Ranch Event Center from beginning to end. We ended up forming relationships with the people we worked with, which made the entire process that much more fun! The staff at CREC is extremely professional, accommodating, kind, and knowledgeable about the wedding industry. They confidently proclaim they can put on an event with their eyes closed, since they’ve been doing this for so long, and it is absolutely true! I made several last-minute requests/changes to the plan up until the last minute before the wedding (we’re talking: moving the wedding from inside to outside three days before the wedding), and they made the changes without batting an eye. There is a certain warmth, hospitality, and peacefulness you’ll feel at this place — not only because the grounds and building are beautiful, but because the staff is so amazing! If you’re looking for an incredible venue for any sort of event — especially a wedding — this is your place. Trust me, we looked all over Denver and could not find anything so all-inclusive for their amazing prices. And they will work with you to ensure your day is everything you dreamed of and more. We love Church Ranch Event Center!
Quick shout out to Mitchell from CREC: Mitchell was the first person we met when we looked at the venue after we got engaged, and it was love at first meeting. He took care of us throughout the entire process, always went above and beyond to accommodate whatever we needed, and has become a friend of ours! He is so full of energy, enthusiasm, and is so passionate and knowledgeable about the industry. He has lots of connections in the area as well, and will not hesitate to connect you with the right vendors. Mitchell is the best!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! A wonderful and special day that couldn’t have happened without all of you! Mitchell and Maggie and Madi were so fantastic!! Love the venue and the people, JJ and I are so grateful!!
This ructic & elagant venue is probably 45 minutes or less for your Denver area guests and the staff was unbelievably helpful! We were cheerfully accommodated and assisted at every turn. I would highly recommend this venue for any wedding/reception/party or large corporate event – amazing! From the beginning, Coco, Madi and Eric worked with us, from vision down to the details. Some family friends did a pig roast for us, with all the trimmings. Staff at CREC took over serving, replenishing, cleaning up, etc.. all with smiles on their faces and hustle in their steps. Eric heard some murmuring about issues we were having with the local hotel where we had blocked rooms for our guests. He immediately got on the phone with the hotel and rectified the situation. At the end of the night, the CREC staff almost took over our clean up duties; we were not in it alone. And the best nightcap, the hotel sent the shuttle bus driver home before all our guests were back at the hotel – well, guess who became our shuttle driver, Eric! He drove his car over to the hotel, got the shuttle keys from the front desk, and returned to CREC with the shuttle bus! We were taken care of until the lights were out and the gates were locked. Reserving CREC for my daughter’s wedding was one of the best wedding decisions we made
We had our wedding at Church Ranch Event Center last weekend and it was PERFECT! Eric did a fantastic job scheduling everything throughout the day and making sure we were happy. I would not have changed a single thing about the entire process with them. They made it so easy to plan especially because we were out of state in the beginning. Madi also went out of her way to answer all questions I had in a timely manner and was so sweet about everything. They do not have just an okay list of vendors; they are the best of the best. The grounds are incredible and so well maintained. Thank you Church Ranch Event Center and all staff!
The Church Ranch Event Center was the perfect location for our wedding day! It was beautiful in early spring with a rustic, garden feel to it. Eric and Coco were great to work with on all of the big and little details prior to the wedding day, and Julie and Renee were awesome with helping the rehearsal and actual wedding day to run smoothly. I would highly recommend this venue to couples!
Such an awesome venue!!! Eric and the rest of the team made sure everything turned out perfectly for our wedding. We were very particular about a lot of the small details, but and they happily accommodated all of our requests and helped make our wedding day very special. This venue is beautiful and there are so many nice areas to hang out in. We definitely recommend using the lighting package for the event hall, it added a great ambiance. We highly recommend Church Ranch Event Center!
My husband and I shot a wedding at Church Ranch Event Center this past weekend and absolutely loved it. They have EVERYTHING! Great place for an outdoor ceremony with a backup gorgeous indoor location, great spot for reception, amazing trees and plants all around the property, and lots of open room for cocktail hour and games if you’d like. I’ve shot over 300 weddings and I have to say this was definitely one of my all-time favorite locations!!
I met Eric during a bridal expo back in January, we were trying to find somewhere that could fit everyone, allow our own catering, had inside and outside possibilities, and was in our budget. I had already seen a few places but none of them had that ‘feeling’. We made the appointment to check out CREC that next week, the minute I walked in, I had it- the Feeling. The inside reception hall is open and airy, the bar is beautiful, and it had that classy rustic look we were looking for. Outside was even better, even though we were seeing it in late January, it was still just what we were looking for- open, filled with trees, and plenty of lawn space for games. They checked off every point on my checklist, I paid the deposit that day. Fast forward ten months to the actual wedding week- Coco answered every random question that my mom and I had, all in their own email or phone call of course, without ever making us feel like we were bothering her. They were reassuring through the whole process and even allowed us to change decoration/table settings up until the day before. The outside landscape was absolutely gorgeous, everybody talked about, there wasn’t one bad word said. The aspens were perfectly yellow, flowers were all blooming, and the grass was a beautiful green. It was just what I had imagined for the last year. On the actual wedding day, it was wonderful not having to worry about anything. They provide an Event Manager who is in charge of timing, flow, and that everything is in the right place. I was able to enjoy the day without knowing if anything went wrong. The price is a good value, there will be small costs that add up- but if you look through the invoice with them each time and pay attention, they’re willing to take things out or change them up until two weeks before. There’s a lot of freedom in what you can do with this space, many venues don’t allow too much outside thought and are very strict with outside vendors (caterers/DJ/etc), these guys allowed a friend of mine to cater the whole thing with no extra charge. I would highly recommend this venue to anybody looking, the value is solid, and Coco and Eric were a joy to work with!
Couldn’t have picked a better venue. The indoor and outdoor spaces make you feel like you are miles away from the city. It was even better that our whole event from ceremony, cocktail hour, to reception were all in one location. Eric and Spencer were easy to work with and really helped us figure out all the details.
Church Ranch Event Center was the perfect location for our wedding July of 2015. Coco and Eric were very helpful from the beginning and always available to answer my questions. They were willing to do whatever they could to make our day special, including ordering several gallons of milk for our cookie and milk dessert table! All of the staff at Church Ranch are willing to make your wedding day or event a very special time for all guests. The grounds are absolutely stunning and well maintained. This event center is truly a diamond in the rough. Several of my guests from the area who had not been to Church Ranch before commented on how beautiful the gardens were and how lovely the indoor reception was. The ambiance is perfect! The backdrop of our wedding ceremony was beautiful, tall aspen trees which looked stunning in all of our photos. For the typical Colorado couple like enjoys our great outdoors, this is the perfect venue for you!
Church Ranch Event Center did an amazing job at hosting our wedding ceremony/reception! The staff was very polite & helpful throughout the whole process which in the end made for a stress free day 🙂 The coordinator Julie was awesome during the rehearsal as well as the day of. We loved that it had a rustic look to it & the gardens are amazing…lots of photo options. We would definitely recommend this venue to others!
