A Picture-Perfect Destination Wedding in the Mountains

For an unforgettable destination wedding, whisk your guests off to a charming dude ranch in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. C Lazy U Ranch provides a romantic, rustic western ambiance and sweeping mountain vistas, as well as the luxury that only destination wedding resorts can provide.

Destination weddings are always exciting, but a wedding at C Lazy U Ranch is a completely unique experience: our designers and catering staff can work with any theme, such as rustic barn weddings, bohemian weddings, Wild West weddings and more, to make sure your day is a romantic, once-in-a-lifetime event for you and your guests.

Highlights of a Mountain Destination Wedding at C Lazy U

  • Exclusive use of the 8,500-acre ranch
  • Scenic photography locations
  • 4 indoor/outdoor ceremony sites
  • 3 indoor/outdoor reception sites
  • Secluded honeymoon cabin
  • Included ranch activities for overnight guests
  • Gourmet dining
  • Bar packages, including wine curated by on-site sommelier

Celebrate your wedding with the touches of an intimate luxury vacation. C Lazy U Ranch is small—not counting its acreage, that is—but lavish, with the ability to combine downhome vibes with elegance. Wedding guests at C Lazy U have private use of the ranch’s 8,500 acres, allowing family and friends to participate in ranch activities to make lasting memories and form even stronger bonds—all centered on a celebration of love and the blending of two families.

For your destination wedding, up to 70–90 guests stay two nights at the ranch, where they are treated to the same five-spur service we offer to all guests. Rates for guests include lodging, gourmet meals and ranch activities such as fly fishing, hiking, and mountain biking in the summer; skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and sledding in the winter; and horseback riding in all seasons. The award-winning Lazy You Spa is open throughout the year for wedding guests—and the bride and groom, of course—to relax and pamper themselves before and after the big day.

Weddings take place year-round at C Lazy U, as the ranch is just as breathtaking blanketed in snow as it is in flowers. The limited June and August wedding weekends typically book one to two years in advance.*

Wedding Ceremonies at C Lazy U Ranch

C Lazy U guests have always admired the natural beauty of the ranch’s surroundings, which is why we have handpicked and designed four unique ceremony sites to highlight the splendor of a destination wedding in the mountains.

Wedding Ceremony Sites

Woodsie Overlook: Perched high above the ranch, this soaring spot overlooks the gentle waters of Willow Creek Reservoir.**

Majestic Pond: Expansive meadows with a rolling mountain backdrop surround a pristine green lawn nestled next to the ranch pond for a quiet, intimate wedding.

Main Lodge: Surround yourself in history at the Main Lodge, one of our most cherished sites that was built 70 years ago with timber from our very own hillside.

Hay Meadow: Arrive in a horse-drawn sleigh to this sprawling field, which is covered in snow in the winter and wildflowers in the summer.

Wedding Receptions at C Lazy U Ranch

Each reception site includes tables and seating, linens, dinnerware, service staff and buffet-style dinner service.

Wedding Reception Sites

Hay Barn: The Hay Barn evokes the quintessential western atmosphere, and has hosted some of the best barn weddings in Colorado. Its interior boasts antler chandeliers, charming string lighting, a lofted lounge area, large dance floor and two bars.**

Main Lodge: Historic and rustic, the Main Lodge offers a cozy saloon-style bar and a formal log dining room for an intimate reception.

Patio House: The poolside deck at the Patio House offers indoor and outdoor seating, multiple fire pits, lawn games, a dance floor and an ice cream parlor.


To ensure your destination wedding in the mountains brings your dreams to life, the ranch requires that you book the ranch exclusively for a two-night minimum. Colorado destination wedding packages at C Lazy U Ranch include luxury cabin lodging, three gourmet meals daily, and most ranch activities.

The C Lazy U provides some of the most romantic wedding experiences. Please do not hesitate to contact our Wedding Sales Manager Heather Peters at hpeters@clazyu.com should you have any questions.

*Weddings are not held at C Lazy U Ranch from the second week of June to the second week of August, as it is reserved for family vacations.
**Not available in the winter


**Please note: As an “all-inclusive” destination, we are unable to accept inquiries for ‘a la carte’ one-day wedding ceremonies and receptions. Two-night minimum stays apply.

From the Horse's Mouth

“Didn't want to leave...”

We had a wonderful experience after a few minor adjustments. Let me begin with the great things about C Lazy U! It was a wonderful week. The ranch is warm, welcoming and truly a lot of fun. The horseback riding and the wranglers were superb! The horses are extremely well cared for and the riding trails are fabulous.
