Strawberry Creek Ranch Wedding Guide

Updated January 7, 2024

Why should you have a Strawberry Creek Ranch wedding?

The best part about Strawberry Creek Ranch is that it has a remote feel without compromising on the amenities. The wedding venue is located on a working family ranch, so it also has a small town family feel to it that couples are really attracted to. When you’re on the property with your guests, it really feels like you’re the only ones out there, which sets up the perfect atmosphere for an intimate and kick-ass party.

Where is Strawberry Creek Ranch located?

Strawberry Creek Ranch 2690 Co Rd 60, Granby, CO 80446.
It’s one of the premier wedding venues in Grand County.

Elevation: 7935 feet

What is the overall feel of Strawberry Creek Ranch?

Vibe: The ranch feels secluded, which means that you’ll feel completely part of the mountain surroundings on the day of your wedding. It has an upscale mountain ranch feel to it without feeling stuffy. Just lots of clean, crips air, and open mountain spaces.

Favorite Part: Nothing is too close together or too far apart. Which means that you’ll have the space to spread out, but your guests won’t ever have to walk too far to get anywhere.

Overall Impressions: Definitely consider this venue if you’re looking for a quintessential Colorado wedding experience!

Pro Tips for Getting Married at Strawberry Creek Ranch

The onsite coordinators are incredibly kind and helpful, so make sure you utilize their expertise about the space.

There is are great options for couple’s photos, from an aspen grove to the wide open fields with mountain views.

And of course, photos at sunset are a must, so plan at least 30 minutes for those. If you get lucky and get some cloud color, the reflection on the pond is really nice.

There are no indoor bathrooms on site. BUT, the ranch does supply portable restrooms (NOT porta-potties, but the kind of portable restrooms with flushing toilets).

Leashed pets are allowed, so consider bringing your furry friends!

Strawberry Creek Ranch sits at just under 8,000 feet in elevation, so be aware that altitude could be an issue for guests. Check out my 10 Tips for Getting Married at Altitude and plan ahead!

I consider Strawberry Creek Ranch to be a fantastic intimate wedding venue because of the wide open and personal spaces. (Looking for other intimate wedding spots? check out my list!). But it is also capable of handling a larger guest count.

Where do you get ready at Strawberry Creek Ranch?

There getting ready spaces aren’t very big, so keep that in mind. There is a small space in the historic barn where one side of the party can get ready, and there is another space in an old cabin. The cabin is larger.

Neither space has great natural light though, so that’s something to chat with your photographer about. You could also choose to get ready at a hotel in Granby or Winter Park and just do finishing touches at the ranch.

The reception space at Strawberry Creek Ranch

The best part about receptions at Strawberry Creek Ranch are the access to multiple spaces.

The lawn is great for cocktail hour, where guests can spread out and enjoy drinks next to the pond and next to the historic barn. You can set up lawn games, people can lounge on benches, and there is even a fire pit.

The old historic barn often houses the bar and is a great place for people to lounge if they need a break from the Colorado sun.

The wooden deck attached to the old barn is perfect for dancing and is strung with market lights. The outdoor dancing space is amazing as the sun goes down and the sky turns from daylight to twilight.

In 2021, the ranch completed their new barn space, which is where they now host dinners. The rear barn doors can open fully, providing a great indoor/ outdoor feel to the space.

Best places for wedding party and couples photos at Strawberry Creek Ranch

There are great places to take photos at the Ranch. I highly recommend building in enough time to explore all of these spots at some point during your wedding day!

The aspen grove

There is a beautiful aspen grove a short walk from the main reception barn. It’s large enough that you could photograph in front of it or within it, and depending on the lighting there are multiple angles we could shoot from.

The old barn

Definitely ask to a take a little trip up to the large windows in the old barn. This space isn’t open to guests, but the coordinator will allow you up for a few couple’s photos and it’s a cool iconic feature of the property.

The open fields with mountain views

These fields are at their best at sunset, where you can take in the last rays of sun before it goes behind the mountains. Take your time here, enjoy the break from your reception, and really admire the beauty of a soft sunset in the mountains.

The pond

If you get a great sunset with lots of sky color, the pond is the place to be. The reflections can be amazing.

The firepit

I LOVE firepits and one of the best selling points about Strawberry Creek Ranch is that it has a beautiful one. Definitely take some time to cuddle by the fire, make s’mores with your partner, and enjoy the warmth against the cool Colorado mountain air.
