Let’s be honest, a Colorado wedding is a notch above the rest because of one truly unique trait in their venues: the most amazing views you’ll ever see! Rolling hills, wide open skies, lush greenery and wonderfully vibrant sunsets to end the night. Today we are highlighting a venue that combines all of these gorgeous landscapes into one large property so you and your guests can soak in all that Colorado has to offer while partying away.

Mount Vernon Canyon Club is a historic venue based in Golden, CO, home to some of the best outdoor activities in all of the state. Set 7,600 feet into the sky and just an easy 20 minute drive away from Denver, this site offers spectacular scenes of mountains and forests like no other. Couples can exchange vows amidst the striking mountain-top scenery, looking over the lights of the city. Can you imagine a better wedding photo location? We can’t!

Best of all, you have many options for how the actual event is run when you aren’t basking in the panorama of picturesque views. This venue caters to all ceremony types. For couples wishing to make the most of the glorious surrounding landscape, ceremonies can be held on the outdoor decking (check out their website for galleries with all the locations!). With a stunning backdrop of mountains during the day, or lit up at twilight, this location offers a truly gorgeous setting for wedding pictures. The Mount Vernon Canyon Club also offers three elegant indoor event rooms, each with their own private deck, large windows, and, of course, scenic views of the property around them.

Regardless of which space you end up booking, the club can accommodate up to 220 guests, and in addition to wedding ceremonies and receptions, they cater to rehearsal dinners, luncheons, showers, and engagement parties. So, don’t stress if you already have the big day booked, you can still snag a date at Mount Vernon Canyon Club for a separate pre-wedding celebration.

All your catering needs are taken care of by the club’s in-house chef, Ryan Wolf, who has served up delicious menus at the club for four years. Couples can choose from a variety of menu options, including hors d’oeuvres, plated meals, or buffets, as well as stations. And while the chef does allow couples to bring their own wedding cake, he is also happy to create a custom-made cake that they can design. We believe custom is always the way to go when planning your wedding, so embrace the options you have!

That includes the club’s range of services within their wedding packages, such as the use of reception tables and chairs, along with complete setup of the room with items like table linens, napkins in a choice of colors, plates, and flatware. Their site provides parking, as well as valet service at designated times, to make sure all your guests find the accommodation they need. To assist their couples in the planning process, the personable team over at the club also offers a list of vendors they love and trust for all wedding services. This includes services such as florists, music, officiants, photographers, transportation, specialty rental services, and even other professional wedding planners.

If you haven’t gotten it figured out yet, this is a venue that takes care of their clients like no other. Not only do they provide a wonderful venue for your wedding celebrations, they help cover all the other bases of your big day so there is a 0% chance of last minute stress. If that sounds good to you, check out their website or give them a call! They’re happy to answer questions you may still have.
