About The Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding Venue

14771 Spruce Mountain Road

Larkspur, CO 80118

Conveniently located just 30 minutes from Denver and Colorado Springs, Spruce Mountain Ranch is an excellent private event venue that sits in the picturesque foothills of Colorado. This venue offers an impressive collection of wedding ceremony and reception sites celebrating Colorado style, with hand-crafted details, modern amenities, and indoor/outdoor event options. 

In the 1870s, what is now known as “Spruce Mountain Ranch” was once a thriving dairy farm that also grew oats, millet, and hay. The property has changed hands numerous times throughout the years.

In March of 1999, Tom and Lois Ames bought the land. Tom and Lois allocated 100 acres to a housing development. Furthermore, the pair renovated the remaining acreage to become a resort-like atmosphere for families and guests. 

Spruce Mountain Ranch ensures that a property manager attends every event, helping manage the vendors, keeping everyone safe, and supporting the client’s event manager in running an amazing event.

Details of the Grounds

The owners specifically constructed Spruce Mountain Ranch’s event spaces to highlight the beauty of Colorado. With both indoor and outdoor venue spaces available, this property can host weddings at all times of the year. 

The Lower Ranch Venues

There are five Lower Ranch venues to choose from. Couples can use Albert’s Lodge for the ceremony or reception and host 250-600 guests. This rustic, elegant lodge features a front porch, a floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace, and a built-in bar. 

Additionally, a private room has a wet bar, flat-screen TV, and pool table. The massive doors on one side lead to a courtyard lit with romantic market lights, allowing guests to enjoy both indoor and outdoor spaces.

The Colorado Room can be used for the ceremony or reception and can host 80-250 guests. It features indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a stream and a dew pond, flower gardens, and outdoor activities. 

The Courtyard can be used for the ceremony or reception and can host 200-400 guests. This outdoor space sits between the Colorado Room and Albert’s Lodge. Rock walls surround this outdoor space that features a rustic log pergola at its entrance. 

The Lower Ranch has two ceremony-only sites: Grace’s Chapel and the Mountainside. Grace’s Chapel can host up to 600 guests and has an elegant, southern plantation feel. This space has an incredible view of Spruce Mountain, a flowing creek, and blooming wildflowers. The Mountainside is a vast open meadow area that overlooks the ranch and Ogden Pond.
