Blackstone Rivers Ranch is a gorgeous riverfront wedding venue in Idaho Springs, just 35 minutes from Denver.

Everything about Blackstone Rivers Ranch is done well. Attention to detail is one of the sticking points you’ll remember when you visit this fairly new but rustic mountain venue. The outdoor ceremony space and sail cloth reception tent are ideal for your wedding up to 150 guests. The creekside lounge is an excellent place to enjoy a cocktail which will really wow your guests.

They only host one event a day so they can accommodate the needs of your special day. There is even a private cabin onsite that is the perfect suite for your wedding night. If you’re looking for a boutique wedding venue in Idaho Springs, away from the masses, this is worth checking out.

Wedding pricing ranges from $6,000-$13,500 (venue only) for weddings. Elopements start at $1,800.

There is ample parking at the venue.

Mt. Evans is an ideal location for first look to obtain mountain backdrops. It's a 12 minute drive each way from the venue to Echo Lake on Mt. Evans and another 24 minutes each way up to Summit Lake. If you make time for this on the wedding day you'll be glad that you did.
