Reception Location- Trail Creek Ranch
I must admit, we here at Events, Etc. are rather biased toward Trail Creek Ranch. We just love it. It is the first place that I worked a wedding and the first place that Lisa worked a wedding. Alex, the property manager is pretty much the nicest, super helpful and most down to earth lady you ever met. The property has amazing history and surprisingly not a lot of people know about this little gem. A bonus is that it has lodging. There is not enough lodging for the whole wedding (unless you are having a very small wedding), but there is enough space for the near and dear guests who will be in town the whole week of a wedding. Not everyone wants a rustic-chic wedding, but those who do fall in love with Trail Creek Ranch. There is a functioning barn to get married in front of and guests can sit on bales of hay during the ceremony. If your guests are less rustic then you can bring in chairs for them. The cabins are basic, but perfect for getting ready while sipping champagne. Many of the cabins have a porch too, and my guess is that most people spend their time on the porch enjoying the views and crisp mountain air rather than inside. The site for the reception tent has sweeping views of the valley and Sleeping Indian mountain. I am getting excited for the summer just thinking about it all! It would not be an exaggeration to call this place magical.
Did you know? Trail Creek Ranch also has a swimming pool. This is a huge hit for kids and adults alike. What better way to spend the day after a wedding than splashing around in the pool?
