Spruce Mountain Ranch is a wedding venue on a historic ranch situated in Larkspur, Colorado. Sophisticated and rustic, the event spaces offer both convenient amenities and stylish interiors well suited to weddings and other events. It is located just 30 minutes from both Denver and Colorado Springs, making it easily accessible to guests. The staff at this family-owned ranch are enthusiastic about welcoming couples to their mountainous retreat.

Facilities and Capacity

Located on 450 acres, Spruce Mountain Ranch is divided into two event areas, each with outdoor and indoor options for events. This allows couples the ability to host their wedding in any season. Elements like stone and wood architectural details, fireplaces, lush landscaping, and more help to create a tranquil and refined vibe. On the Lower Ranch, ceremonies can begin in Grace’s Chapel, a garden site with a whimsical willow tree. From here, Spruce Mountain can be seen in the distance. Vow exchanges can also take place at Mountainside, which features a pond and vistas of the sprawling ranch. Both of these ceremony areas can accommodate up to 250 guests. Outdoor receptions can be set up on The Courtyard, which can also serve as a setting for “I dos.” It is in between The Colorado Room and Albert’s Lodge. Both of these indoor locations are suited for ceremonies and receptions. Their lodge-inspired layouts create an inviting ambience for festivities of between 80 and 250, depending on the chosen banquet hall.

The Upper Ranch similarly features indoor and outdoor options. Vows can be heard by loved ones in the wide-open Trey’s Vista, a spot that immerses guests in the landscape. Galas with 1,200 guests can be held in The Ponderosa Room. Extending from this space is The Spruce Room, which can be used alone or with The Ponderosa. Outside, The Courtyard works as an area for cocktails, or for ceremonies and receptions. Couples may also express their love and commitment at the waterfront Lakeside Terrace which additionally works for rehearsal brunches.

Services Offered

At Spruce Mountain Ranch, a property manager can be present to facilitate a couple’s use of the space. Many rental packages include access to both indoor and outdoor spaces. The staff provides setup and cleanup services in addition to dressing rooms for the couple’s convenience. Parking is also available. Tables and chairs for the ceremony and reception can be provided as well. The venue is outfitted with contemporary amenities that are integrated into spaces featuring hand-crafted touches, blending the best of both worlds.

    Perfect Colorado location with space and style!

    The PERFECT Colorado wedding venue! You truly get it all when booking with Spruce Mountain. Epic Colorado landscape, pristine venue with tons of private space, amazing bridal cottage, and an attentive and professional staff. We got married at the Lower Ranch in September and it was perfect. There's a different space for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception which was great, and lots of outdoor/fresh air to enjoy the Colorado beauty! Out of town guests were blown away with the beauty of the venue and from start to finish working with Tara and her staff was easy and fun. They truly love what they do there and make their couples feel special and taken care of! Best decision ever booking this venue!!!

    Spruce Mountain Ranch's reply:

    Melissa, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so happy to hear that you and Kevin's wedding day was everything you hoped it to be. We absolutely adore our couples and so grateful to be a part of each and every one of your wedding days. Don't be strangers! We wish you the happiest lives together!

    Dream venue!

    We couldn't have chosen a better place to get married! Our wedding day was an absolute dream and it's largely because SMR is such a stunning venue. We got so many compliments on it from our guests too. Additionally, Tara was wonderful to work with. She always got back to us quickly and was excellent with communicating. Additionally, all of the staff the day of made sure everything went perfectly. We definitely recommend!

    The perfect venue!

    When we first toured Spruce, we knew it was the place for us! It is so beautiful and unique, and definitely has that ‘Colorado’ feel. We loved that we could utilize both the indoor and outdoor spaces, and that guests had multiple places to hang out. Couldn’t imagine a better place to have a wedding!

I have photographed here a few times and it's always a please. It's hidden away from the world perfectly on the front range. Beautiful place year round.

We LOVE working at Spruce Mountain Ranch! The venue genuinely captures the Colorado spirit with mountain elegance and incredible backdrops. It's truly a gem that feels hidden away in the mountains but it's all within a close drive to and from Denver, perfect for traveling guests. We know that when we work with Spruce, they will always go the extra mile to make sure your event is perfect!

From the Hip Photo From the Hip Photo Wedding Photographers

Our team has photographed weddings at hundreds of venues across Colorado and Spruce Mountain Ranch is at the very top of our list. While the setting and facilities make it an absolute treat to photograph at this venue, the thing we love most about being part of events there is that we know our clients will be exceptionally well cared for from start to finish. Tara, Brus, Erin and the rest of the team treat all of their couples like family. Indeed, once you learn about the Ranch's roots as a family property it's easy to understand why everyone they team up with receives such a high degree of attention and service. If you haven't been, the Ranch is set amid stunning acres nestled against the mountains. The various indoor spaces have a classic Coloradan lodge feel but are also modern, luxurious, and chic. It's a perfect mix of everything you'd want in a venue, and while it feels pleasantly removed from the city, it's only a short drive from Denver and The Springs. We truly can't say enough about how much we love this venue and how much respect we have for the team running it. That's why it's our first suggestion for weddings and corporate events!
