Joe and Michelle discovered the ranch at Snow Creek Larkspur in 2012 while on a day hike to Spruce Mountain, and were stunned with its majesty and beauty.

Surrounded by stunning vistas and abundant wildlife, they determined that the ranch was just too beautiful not to share, and opened the ranch for weddings, corporate retreats, and farm classes. Working with a variety of their fellow Colorado event planning companies and professionals, Joe and MIchelle have worked hard to enhance the amenities offered by their spectacular setting, while retaining its Rural Front Range – Old West charm.

Call Matt Dempsey at 303-229-9382 or email for more information about hosting your wedding or special occasion at the ranch and our partnerships with Colorado Springs and Denver corporate event planning  companies.
