Your magical day: welcoming family into your own haven under mature Cottonwoods and redstone cliffs; your ceremony surrounded by lush green grasses and stands of apple trees; the solitude and celebration tinted by the gentle sound of the North St. Vrain River; your friends relaxing among historic ranch buildings, an outdoor bar, and colorful wildflower gardens; your guests enjoying an elegant meal and dancing in the beautiful Wildflower Pavilion.
From spring thru fall, the 20-acre Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, CO is available for wedding rentals. Located just 25-minutes north of Boulder (midway between Boulder and Estes Park), the historic ranch property includes the entire riverfront of the North St. Vrain, east of the Lyons bridges on Highway 36.
The grounds feature dozens of mature Cottonwoods, many varieties of apple trees, a sandy riverfront beach, and numerous secluded areas along the St. Vrain River and its beautiful back drop of hundred foot redstone cliffs. The wildflower and perennial gardens add continuously changing colors to the landscape.
Our new 4800 square foot Wildflower Pavilion features state-of-the art wood and steel construction that blends with the natural setting of the Planet Bluegrass Ranch. Astroturf covers the floor to provide a natural, comfortable footing and again blur the line between nature and an indoor setting. The Pavilion features a state-of-the-art sound system featuring Meyer Sound CQ-1 speakers - the same speakers used by Carnegie Hall, Dave Matthews Band, and Luciano Pavarotti.
An outdoor bar provides an area for cocktails, conversation, and chance to take in the view of Longs Peak on a clear day. A newly renovated private cabin is a favorite of Brides while grooms have their own rooms in one of our historic buildings. Our deep green lawns provide plenty of space for guests to enjoy appetizers, take photographs, or mingle in small groups.
At Planet Bluegrass, we strive to re-use, recycle, and compost whenever possible. We expect nothing less from any wedding or event that uses our property, and we provide everything needed to help your event be a sustainable one.
