Facilities and Capacity
Begin your day in the classically designed Lodge by preparing in one of the designated get-ready suites. Here, you can admire the warm woodwork interior of the ranch house and take a moment to relax with your wedding entourage. There is plenty of room for your hair and makeup teams to help you ready yourself for the festivities. Your ceremony can take place in The Saddle Barn, a beautifully pastoral event space designed to host elegant celebrations. Here, you can seat up to 80 guests for your ceremony and reception in the seating design of your choice. Weather permitting, you could opt for an outdoor service in the beautiful grounds that surround The Barn. The surrounding gardens are ideal for a cocktail reception in the fresh mountain air before proceeding back inside to enjoy a delicious meal. The interior of the barn structure is notable for its exposed log ceiling beams. Market lighting is placed around the perimeter, casting a romantic glow over your reception as the sun sets. There is plenty of room to accommodate a dance floor and after-dinner entertainment. For a more intimate affair, you can enjoy a ceremony and reception based solely in The Lodge. Your service can take place on the main floor, which can then be flipped to accommodate your dining. You can comfortably seat up to 36 guests here, keeping warm next to the wood-burning fireplace.
Thanksgiving Ranch offers two distinct experience packages depending on the size of your event. Each is designed to fit their distinct spaces, the Barn and the Lodge. Both rentals offer overnight accommodation for up to fourteen guests in the Lodge. Full event catering is availiable for both packages, masterminded by the culinary team at The Ranch. They can help you to design a distinct menu for your celebration, complete with delicious wine pairings. Full bar service can also be provided, including premium beers, wines, liquors, and even custom cocktails. Event rentals such as glassware, flatware, linens, and china can also be sought from the management. There is plenty of parking available on-site for the convenience of you and your guests. Market tents are also another option to consider.

Exceeded our Expectations
I had my elopement at the ranch in August of this year. We originally had another venue booked but because of COVID, they cancelled all bookings.
We reached out to Brad and Christi to see what they could accommodate.
I had my heart set on a big wedding but It was better than I could have ever imagined.
The location is breathtaking. The venue fit right into my theme, and the food was impeccable!
They went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect and it exceeded our expectations!Sent on 20/12/2020
