Finding the right wedding venue for your big day is so important. With all the wedding venues in Colorado to choose from, it can feel like a daunting task. The beauty is, you can look no further, because you’ve searched for “wedding venues in Colorado” and found Ellis Ranch and Event Center, the best wedding venue in Northern Colorado. Our business is family-owned and operated and has been a premiere wedding and event destination spot since 1963. We offer fresh air and stunning views, where you can enjoy the exclusive use of one of our two wedding sites for the entire day. What do we mean when we say exclusive? We don’t book more than one event per site per day. That means you get the whole day to yourself! We think that it’s important to be able to savor one of the biggest days of your life.

Let’s talk more about our 2 incredible wedding sites to choose from: 

Event Center 

The Event Center at Ellis Ranch is a beautiful rustic barn style venue that is perfect for larger weddings, fundraisers, company parties, etc. With a capacity of up to 450, if you need a larger venue this is the setting is perfect for you. The event center’s outdoor wedding park is absolutely gorgeous and has a backdrop of the beautiful hillside and a canopy of mature trees, both of which are perfect for photos after the ceremony. Inside, there is more room than you can imagine, making it perfect for nearly any function you might need to host. 

The massive bar is not only beautiful but can accommodate up to three bartenders, ensuring your guests spend more time dancing than in line. The dance floor is perfect for parties that want to party and, with a raised stage for the DJ, the dance floor will be packed! The Event Center also has two full-size wagons in the building which are perfect for the guestbook and gift “table” and the cake cutting table backdrop. 

Carriage House 

The Carriage House at Ellis Ranch is the perfect site for smaller, more intimate weddings, wedding receptions, and events. With a capacity for up to 150 people and a stunning view while dining “al fresco” (in the fresh air), it’s a show stopper!​ The carriage house features a wedding gazebo and beautiful rustic wood benches. The guests see a view of both gorgeous trees and stunning mountain sides. 

After the ceremony, guests gather on the huge deck under a canopy of mature trees and lights for cocktails. Dinner is served in the pavilion area, and on our beautiful Colorado days, guests dine “al fresco” and if the temperature gets a little chilly in the evening the side walls come down and your inside is nice and toasty. First dances are hashtag worthy on the deck and the charming outdoor bar is a true guest favorite!

You can view photos of the Event Center, and Carriage House to get a better feel of what might be the best wedding venues in Colorado selection for you.

Of all the wedding venues in Colorado, we hope you choose us for your big day!

Check out what Ashley had to say about her wedding experience with us: 

“Our wedding was absolutely amazing!  We just had it here in July at the Carriage house, it was beautiful, and the trees on the deck gave us nice shade for the evening. The staff and owners Shawn and Kim were outstandingly helpful throughout the whole process! Kim answered all of my email questions and Shawn walked us through the whole venue, the decorations, and tips on how he has seen things flow smoothly. He even helped me select the table cloth colors :). I would 100% recommend Ellis Ranch to everyone and if I could do it all again I would not change a thing!”
