  • Blackstone Rivers Ranch was the perfect place for our wedding! The scenery was breathtaking and the style of the suites and the lodge were exactly what we wanted. Working with the BRR staff was so easy and they helped us every step of the way. I could not have asked for a more wonderful venue for our boho mountain wedding!

  • This venue is absolutely incredible. Our wedding is next summer but so far, the service, communication, and everything has been superb. Rachel and her team are rockstars and have so much passion for what they're doing. We cannot wait!

  • Breathtaking location and top quality service. The staff at Blackstone Rivers Ranch is attentive and approachable. They were willing and able to answer any and all questions and went above and beyond to make sure our special day went off without a hitch. They thought of everything that we would never have thought of on our own and made the day one to remember. Their efforts on the day of event made it possible for us to relax and enjoy our time celebrating. Every guest we have spoken to since the party has raved about how beautiful the location was and how relaxed the whole event felt. We highly recommend Blackstone Rivers Ranch! You won't regret it.

    Annalisa, we cannot say enough nice things about you and Andrew. You two were always easy to be around - never stressed out. Your down to earth wedding was a BLAST and it could be seen on every guests' face. Your lawn games were a hit, what a great idea!

  • Blackstone is such an amazing venue! When we first visited the site was under construction and covered in about 3 inches of snow and we still knew then that it would be amazing and I'm glad we trusted our instincts! The staff was easy to work with and planning was easy. They accommodated a custom beer listed curated to our craft beer taste! The site is obviously gorgeous but we especially liked the history that is in every detail, right down to the pick-axe handles on the doors which are from the original mining claim. Great place to get married and will make the day extremely special!!

    Eddy, we are always amazed when couples book while touring in "3 inches of snow" :) Thank you for trusting us to have your most incredible day here. We LOVED the vision you and Maria had. Your hand-made centerpieces are still a staff favorite around here!

  • We first visited Blackstone Rivers Ranch while construction was still underway. Huge machinery and dirt patches abounded, but my (now) husband and I immediately recognized the vision of Rachel and Zuri as something that fit both our style and personalities. We immediately fell in love. On the actual big day of our wedding, BRR couldn’t have been lovelier, and I found myself literally skipping down the trail from the Claim Jumper Cabin, where we had stayed the night before. From my perspective as bride, everything was smooth sailing with love and rainbows all around. Of course that just speaks to the professionalism of the team as anyone who has been involved with a wedding of 130+ guests knows that there’s no such thing as perfect “smooth sailing”! But the grounds were exquisite, the ceremony was simply stunning (my family and in-laws are STILL talking about it!), the backdrop of yellowing aspen trees couldn’t have been more perfect, the ambiance during cocktail hour cr...

  • When thinking of our wedding last night in "Claim Jumper Cabin", the words that come to mind are; magical, elegant, chic, well appointed, and sensational. As a man who has a tight hold on his checkbook...I have to say that no greater value in life or leisure has ever been afforded to me than the Blackstone Rivers Ranch wedding venue. We loved every second of our time on property, and appreciate all the wonderful people who made our stay magical! ~~ Update 2 weeks later ~~ Both of our families have spent the last two weeks gushing about how incredible they felt the wedding and venue were...we couldn't be more thankful that we booked Blackstone Rivers Ranch to celebrate our love and bring our families closer together!!

    Mr. Brian, we will treasure you and your wily ways forever here at the ranch! It is always hard to balance the budget and the dream day, but we think you, the Mrs., and we here at BRR did quite a fine job. Thank you for choosing us! ;)

  • My husband and I came and saw the venue before it was even close to being completed. Rachel had such a clear and inspiring vision for it that we immediately knew it would be perfect for us. What they did with the property far exceeded our expectations! It is absolutely perfect and insanely beautiful! The team is extremely responsive, helpful, professional, and patient . I highly recommend Blackstone Rives Ranch to any couple looking far a rustic, classy, and whimsical outdoor wedding. We had the best day of our lives there!

  • If you are looking for a gorgeous mountain retreat under an hour from Denver with elegant finishes, Blackstone Rivers Ranch is IT! From the moment we met Rachel and saw the beauty of the Ranch, we were in love. This venue is captivating! The natural beauty of Colorado surrounds you and Rachel and Zuri have carefully selected every detail and finish from the gorgeous sailcloth tent, to the elegant rustic exterior with lavishly appointed interior of the lodge, to the dreamy fairy lights in the wooded cocktail hour location. They have truly thought of everything! Our vendors were even blown away by the beauty of the Ranch and our guests are still gushing over how amazing it is! Our package included a photo booth in a darling original wood shack with paned window and a door, located next to the wooden covered bridge that overlooks the river (swoon!). The bridal suite and grooms rooms are beautifully appointed and spacious, each with a private deck and plenty of room for getting ready with ... Read more

  • Our daughter had the wedding of her dreams at Blackstone Rivers Ranch! Everything about Blackstone Rivers Ranch is magnificent, natural, and down to earth. Rachel and Zuri have created a venue that is in perfect sync with the surrounding landscape, fulfilling the vision that our daughter and son-in-law had for their special day. Many of the wedding guests traveled from New York and the mid-west, and all were amazed by the enchanting setting at Blackstone Rivers Ranch. The babbling brook, aspen trees and scenic backdrops provide a rustic beauty to the landscape and design at BRR, which is enhanced by many unique handmade touches throughout the venue, such as seats that Zuri carved by from tree trunks, which we sat on for the wedding ceremony, and the bar also carved from trees. The fire pit at night was an added bonus to the festivities. Being from out of state, we had to do much of the wedding planning from long distance, but Rachel was personally involved to assist us and p... Read more

    Phil & Diane, you, your friends and family were truly a treasure to host! From "our family to yours," we cannot wish you more amazing years of memories. Thank you for choosing us to host yours! Always, R, Z & the entire BRR Family!

  • We are so incredibly fortunate to have connected with Rachel and Zuri at Blackstone Rivers Ranch. From our very first meeting, they were easy to work with, and it was clear that they were eager and excited to help us carry out our vision for our wedding day. Their vision totally aligned with ours, and it was effortless to work together. One thing we really valued about the Blackstone experience was the flexible time frames offered. Rather than boxing us into a pre-packaged timeline like most other venues, they allowed us to schedule the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at times of our choosing. The Ranch has unique subsections across its grounds (rustic building with bridal suite and groom’s lounge, woodsy ceremony site, creekside cocktail hour, reception under the sailcloth tent), so holding the entire event there felt intimate yet spacious with 100 guests. The package we chose included unique perks such as a photo booth, a wooden envelope box, food and drinks of our choosing... Read more

    Dear Seth & Laura - to date, we have not hosted a more audaciously sweet couple. Your authentic nature, love for each other and overall radiance will always be treasured at the ranch! *hugs*

  • There is not a more beautiful venue on earth the Blackstone Rivers Ranch. Everything is just perfect, the scenery, the mountains, the small rivers, the aspen trees. The large white tent is *literally* the one you imagine at the end of Harry Potter. The entire place was constructed with precision and care, from the homemade farm tables to the old mining details on inside the large lodge. We wanted an outdoor mountain setting that could accommodate 200 people within 30 minutes of Denver, and Blackstone honestly was the ONLY venue that fit that description. It was exactly everything we could have hoped for in a venue. Then why the 3.8 stars you ask? While the venue itself is perfect, they are clearly still new to the business. Our caterer, our photographer, our day of coordinators, and us all had issues with the staff. They were often slow to respond and then inconsistent in what we were told. While nothing was such a big problem that it affected our big day, there were far more heada... Read more

  • Everyone talks about their wedding day, but I truly feel like we had the best day of our lives. Blackstone Rivers Ranch is beautiful and we loved working with Rachel, Cheryl & everyone else there. Anytime we had a question or concern, they addressed it right away.
