An Intimate, Exclusive Event

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.

Treat Your Guests to the C Lazy U Ranch Experience

For your destination wedding, up to 70–90 guests stay two nights at the ranch, where they are treated to the same superior service we offer to all guests. Weddings are always buy-out events so the only guests on-ranch will be yours. Rates for guests include:

A Ranch Wedding Venue Available Year Round

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 at our mountain wedding venue in Granby, Colorado.

Wedding Ceremony Sites

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

pond and lodge

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.

Exterior of the Main Lodge

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 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.**

patio bonfire

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.


Buying Out the Ranch

In order to provide exclusivity and provide the perfect wedding experience, wedding parties are required to rent out the entire ranch May through October for a minimum of two nights. The ranch does not require a full ranch buyout for weddings November through April. The wedding party is responsible for guaranteeing the space and C Lazy U Ranch structures this into one easy to understand buyout price so you know exactly what your wedding is going to cost.

Buyout pricing includes:

  • All Site Fees
  • Standard linens, flatware, glassware, dinnerware, lighting and décor
  • Accommodations on Ranch for the Wedding party and all guests
  • Gourmet Dining
  • Activities for you and your guests
  • Taxes and Resort Fees

Exclusive Buyout Pricing

Maximum Number of People Maximum Number of People Buyout Price Per night Two Night Wedding Price
November – April 70 $50,586 $101,000
May – October 80 $65,500 $131,000

What is My Guest’s Cost to Attend the Wedding?

In other words, what is their cost to attend the wedding and have their own room since that is included in the inclusive buyout price?

This is entirely up to the wedding party. Some weddings choose to host the entire wedding and their guests don’t pay for anything. Other weddings choose to set a nightly rate for their guests to pay at their own expense. If you choose to do this the ranch recommends the wedding sets a nightly per person per night rate of $250 to $300 for their guests. The ranch’s reservation department can explain all of the inclusions outside of the hosted wedding events such as meals and activities.


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

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.

*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 requiring a 7-night minimum stay.
**Not available in the winter

From the Horse's Mouth

Natalie taught us how to ride horses; her instruction was clear, gentle, and kind. She taught us the similarities and differences between English and Western riding. We loved our time with the horses, but especially because Natalie helped us understand how to best interact with the horses. Natalie also helped us on the Feed Wagon ride, which was particularly special for us, because we got to feed horses, watch them eat, and watch them follow the feed wagon. Many thanks to Natalie for helping make this part of our stay magical.
