Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa

On our recent trip to Colorado, we had the opportunity to do a site visit at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa which is located in Tabernash, a short drive from Denver.  This venue is ideal for brides who want a destination wedding and an outdoor ranch style wedding.  You really can’t find anything like this in a big city.  The view was just stunning no matter where you look.

Axel’s Pavilion is perfect for those who want an outdoor event.  In the winter time, this actually turns into a skating rink.

One of our personal favorites was the Presidio Courtyard for a wedding reception under the stars.  Since Palm Springs has a noise restraint, there’s the option of holding your after party in the Presidio Ballroom.
