  • We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and intimate setting. Not only is everything at Blackstone gorgeous and thoughtful on its own, but all highlights the natural beauty of the mountains which is something we loved. While the site can accommodate a huge event, we were thrilled to find a venue that offered a micro-wedding package for our 20-person party in a space that wasn’t so large that it overwhelmed us. All of the preferred vendors we choose were fantastic. We trusted them to make quite a few choices and couldn’t have been happier with how things turned out which made things so easy. Lastly, wanted to share just how wonderful Cheryl at Blackstone was the day of. Everything ran so well and looked beautiful. She even timed our ceremony music perfectly to cut out the pieces we didn’t realize were there at the last minute! We loved it all!

  • The minute we saw Blackstone Rivers Ranch we knew it was where we were meant to get married. From the gorgeous surroundings, the river behind the ceremony site and the stunning outdoor tent with lights, it felt perfect. Our guests didn't have to drive all the way to the mountains to get the mountain feel we were looking for. Its been a month and guests are still reaching out to tell us how much they loved our venue. The staff is very professional, kind, and easy to work with. They do have a very strict alcohol policy-but most venues do. Our day would have been amazing no matter what, but having BRR as our backdrop truly added that extra elegance and Colorado feel we were looking for! Im hoping friends or family use this venue just so we get a chance to go back for another wedding!

  • Our destination wedding experience at Blackstone Rivers Ranch was incredible! The staff is very professional and responsive, the venue is stunning (our guests were blown away!) and the proximity to Denver made it great for a destination wedding! The value of this venue is second to none and the town of Idaho Springs is a hidden gem. I would highly recommend Blackstone!

    What a DREAMY couple you two were, Hilary! We LOVED hosting your one-of-a-kind wedding (the disco ball was our fav!). You two were so easy to work with; we thank you for your kind words!!! XOXO

  • Blackstone Rivers Ranch was the perfect venue for our wedding day. The property is beautiful, well-maintained, and well managed. The location is perfect if you're looking for a mountain experience that is fairly close to Denver (and DIA for out of town guests).

    CASEY AND ANDREW, oh how we loved working with you two! What a privilege it was to host your wedding. It was amazing seeing your vision come together in the tent, it truly was one of THE BEST we have ever seen. Your florals were top notch, your colors were EVERYTHING, your guests were so down-to-earth, and the dance you and your gals performed was a show stopper. THANK YOU for hosting your wedding with us, and we can't wait to recommend La Rue Floral to all of our couples. xoxoxo.

  • I love Blackstone! They did a fantastic job for my special day and worked so hard to make an outdoor ceremony happen for me despite the rain. They are so attentive, kind, and professional. We could not be more pleased with how our day went, and a lot of credit goes to Blackstone's staff for their organization and hard work! Would definitely choose this place all over again a million times.

    Well you already know we LOVE YOU, girl!!!! We are SOO glad you chose Blackstone Rivers Ranch as your wedding venue. Your flowers were everything. Your dress was everything. Your bridesmaids were everything. Your husband singing to you as you walked down the aisle was everything. Wow. Can we relive that day?! Hope you are loving married life!!!

  • We are so happy we chose to have our wedding here! We were looking to have a smaller, more intimate wedding and noticed they offered a "Petite Wedding Package" which perfectly met our needs. The site is breathtaking, with a beautiful layout! The staff was phenomenal, especially Cheryl who was our event coordinator and helped to make our day run smoothly. We were not expecting it to snow the day of our event, but they accommodated us last minute and moved our whole event around. All of our family, our friends. and our vendors agreed we could not have chosen a better place! Thank you all so much!

    responded with the following comments.

    Cadey, we loved hosting your event. It was SO special and heartwarming to see the radiant joy from your family. We say the Petite Wedding package is our favorite for a reason.... It's the most intimate day with closest friends and family. We wish you ALL the best and thank you for choosing to get married at Blackstone Rivers Ranch

  • We had the most incredible evening st Blackstone. We still have people coming up to us expressing their amazement at our wedding and how it was the best they’ve ever been to. Blackstone played a large part in that for sure. They were flexible on multiple accounts and not so flexible on others. If you want to bring things in that aren’t on an approved list you are out of luck. However, that being said they put that policy in place to protect their clients and make sure that their day goes off without a hitch. It was at most mildly inconvenient, and truly made sense once explained. There were a couple of communication issues in regards to certain things being ordered or not, as well as trying to bring in our own special alcohol. Truly though, other than minor hiccups (which were few and far between) Nadine, Cheryl-Anne, and their whole team were accommodating and so generous with answering our questions and working through this process with us. We are grateful to them for being such ... Read more

    Dominic! Thank you for your kind and honest review. Your wedding was jaw dropping. The hanging floral arrangement was by far the best. And the duet with your groom! Such a special moment we were able to witness. We are sorry we couldn't be more flexible due to the liquor license we hold. We are required to follow Colorado liquor laws and we unfortunately we will never break the law regarding liquor. If that is an issue for you (future couples!!) then you should definitely book a venue that allows you to bring in your own alcohol. Thank you again, Dominic, and we hope you and M are LOVING married life!

  • Nadine and Cheryl run a no nonsense business with frequent check ins to get the job done right. The venue is absolutely beautiful and speaks for itself. The vendor list honestly helped narrow down any options (as you know planning can be time consuming!). Additionally the elevation is not extreme for any of your out of towners. We had 200 guests and there was plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Whether it be by the fire pits, the seating are by the ceremony, or on the dance floor. I have referred at least 2 more brides their way and haven't gotten anything but amazing feedback. Pictures don't do it justice, highly recommend!

    Taylooooooor THANK YOU, girl! We loved hosting you and all your friends/family. The idea you had of bringing in flip flops for your lady guests to wear if their feet started hurting was brilliant and shows how kind you and K are. Your review means so much. We cannot thank you enough. Also, THANKS FOR THE REFERRALS!!! We hope to see you here again! xo

  • This venue took ours and our guests breaths away! From the lights strung between the aspens to the fab suites, we were in love with our venue from start to finish. Blackstone Rivers Ranch was everything we wanted and more for our wedding. Every square foot of this place is picture perfect and so dreamy. Guests can roast marshmallows at the fire place while the stream babbles nearby while the wedding party can feel so pampered in the hidden suites. The team at Blackstone Rivers Ranch was quick to respond to the many questions we had and they kept the property very clean. Our guests and ourselves are still gushing over the evening they had at Blackstone Rivers Ranch and we are grateful to have celebrated such a momentous occasion at this picture-perfect venue.

    Jordan, your words mean so much! Thank you for your beautiful description. We love telling couples about how you incorporated your sweet Bear & Bodie into your signature cocktail names. So creative!!! Xoxoxo hope marriage is treating you wonderfully!

  • Our wedding at Blackstone Rivers Ranch was nothing short of magical!! We knew this was our wedding venue the second we saw it, and the wedding day beyond exceeded our expectations. The staff takes amazing care of the grounds and the surroundings are so naturally beautiful that even with minimalist styling the venue still shines. From our site visit all the way through the planning process, the staff was friendly, responsive, and helpful (I'm an event planner myself so I know how important it is to have a vendor you can trust). We had a lot of guests coming from out of town so we loved that the venue was close enough to bus everyone from Denver, but still felt like a destination that gave all of our guests a taste of the Colorado mountains. I also loved that there were so many amazing details at Blackstone that made the venue feel extra special – the ceremony benches, reception chairs, reclaimed wood tables, the bars, the bridal & groom suites, and more. I would highly recommend Black... Read more

We hope you are doing swell and LOVING marriage!!!

  • After a horrible few days searching for venues and on the verge of giving up, my friend suggested I check out BRR and I am so glad she did. It was exactly what we wanted, a outdoor mountain wedding in an aspen grove. The staff is extremely helpful. I really didn't want to because I think their rules make sense, but I only marked them down on flexibility because they do have some strict rules (such as liquor, timing, etc), but I don't think that should count against them, just what they have to do to maintain their beautiful space. My only regret is that I couldn't control the weather for my October wedding so my guests did not get to enjoy all the various nooks they have. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking for something a little different than the typical mountain venue.

    A+M, we will always remember your wedding day. It was a true party with the most elegant, dreamy, dramatic, and modern design. One of our favorites of the year! Thanks for your comment - we always value constructive feedback. We have rules in place for many good reasons and we are thankful when couples can see that. We hope you two are doing so very well and LOVING married life. XOXO.

  • The venue itself was absolutely perfect! Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how amazing it was from the amenities inside, the natural setting by the creek, the mountain vibe and even the different areas outside like the fire pit and picture perfect bridge. It was our own little grounds for our perfect day! The only thing to be cautious of is the venue is pretty strict about a few things like alcohol, preferred vendors and certain rules. I completely understand the need for this as they are a newer venue but if you were thinking of suggesting anything outside of their rules, it’s not going to fly with them. They were so strict about their rules that there was a misunderstanding with the owner about suggesting a preferred vendor that resulted in a threat to not use them as a vendor anymore, which added to the stress of planning the wedding altogether. The whole issue was resolved and the wedding day was absolutely amazing. They are very organized and know what they’re doing whi... Read more

    Thank you for your review Kristen, however, we do feel the need to clarify what you have stated, and provide a bit more back story than you gave. For those reading this review, please consider the facts of the situation. This couple requested to use the catering company that they worked for/were a partner with to cater their wedding, in lieu of our required vendors. After numerous conversations, prior to booking and even upon receiving our contract, it was made clear numerous times that the venue would not allow this. We were very open and honest with them about our rules. We do not allow caterers outside of our approved list, and we do not allow friends/family to cater our couples' weddings. If this is great importance for couples we tour, we always encourage them to seek a venue that allows this. Even after this couple booked, they continued to push us to allow them to use their caterer. They were upset with us when we continued to say "no." At this point, we offered the couple a full refund of the money they had paid, so that they could choose a different venue. The couple ultimately chose a caterer from our list, and thankfully their wedding went flawlessly. Future couples, please understand that if there is a certain caterer you absolutely must use for your wedding, and they are not on our approved list, you should not book our venue. We do not make exceptions to this rule. We are very hurt that this couple is now leaving us a negative review online, when we were completely honest and open with them. If our rules don't coincide with your wedding dream, that is certainly ok, but please don't berate us for that. We have worked very hard to vet our caterers, and due to poor past experience we will not budge on this rule we have set in place. Please trust us in this, your caterer can make or break your event! We have this list of AMAZING caterers for a reason. Kristen, we do wish you the very best.
