Space Type: 

The Meadow

Located 12 minutes from Aspen proper, the 20-acre Meadow is surrounded by National Forest and wilderness. Horses and grazing cattle often appear in the backdrop of the rolling mountain Meadow, paired with the steady Pyramid Peak standing snow-capped at the end of the valley. You can host an outdoor ceremony in the Meadow with a tented reception or choose the Meadow ceremony pairing with either of the other reception venues.

T-Lazy-7 Event Lodge

The Lodge is a reception venue with a private garden patio for cocktail hour, dancing, and dinner. There’s vaulted ceilings, a wrap-around balcony, numerous seating areas and two stone fireplaces. In addition to the dance floor, the Lodge also has a raised entertainment stage. They serve as the focal point of the dining room and are adjacent to the bar area.

Upon entering the Lodge, there is a large coat check area that can also be used to display escort cards, a guest book, or party favors. Guests are then welcomed into the open floorplan of the lodge with passed beverage service from the grand bar, paired with the outside cocktail bar in the summer.

The Chuckwagon Grounds

An outdoor venue with café lights strung high in the trees, the Chuckwagon Grounds has a dining area, stage, dance floor, and a wrap-around bar that’s covered by pavilion-style roofs to protect from rain. Gas heaters also hang from the roofs to warm areas below. The food service area is outfitted with a large gas grill, food prep counters, and serving area. At the center of the venue is a large campfire surrounded by log benches for seating.

Size: 

The Meadow

Depending on the tent rental, the Meadow can host up to 400 guests for a reception.

T-Lazy-7 Event Lodge

The Lodge can seat up to 220 guests, including main floor seating and upstairs balcony seating.

The Chuckwagon Grounds

The dining area in the Chuckwagon Grounds can fit 120 people.

Bridal Suite: T-Lazy-7 Event Lodge only – there is a bridal suite and green room on the second floor which can double as a quiet space for the hosts or entertainment and for babysitting during the event.

Parking: 

Shuttles or a hired transportation service is required, as event parking is limited on the T-Lazy-7 Ranch to 30 spots in the summer months. Couples hosting a winter event are required to hire shuttles as well, as there are less parking spots in the winter months due to snow storage. Winter events may also arrange to transport guests to and from the Highlands Ski Area parking lot for closer parking.

How Will Grandma Get There? 

The venue is only 15 minutes from Aspen Pitkin County Airport and downtown Aspen, where there are tons of hotel options. The Denver International Airport and the City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport are approximately four and five hours away from Aspen, respectively. The Ranch has a number of residential cabins for long-term rentals, but some can be reserved for one or two nights through Airbnb.

Party On! 

The cut-off time varies per venue, but the Lodge can be extended to 1:30 a.m.

Important Note:

The Ranch can place a Soft Hold on a date that you are interested in booking for your event. This does not secure the date but means they’ll contact you if another person inquires about the same date in which you are interested. At that time, you will have 24 hours to either confirm your booking or release the date.

The Report:

T-Lazy-7 Ranch, located in Aspen, Colorado, has been family owned and operated since 1938. In addition to offering a wide variety of activities such as winter snowmobile tours, summer horseback riding, and fly-fishing, the Ranch often hosts events and weddings. A combination of the three available venues — the Meadow, T-Lazy-7 Event Lodge, and Chuckwagon Grounds — can be used for ceremonies and receptions.

Woman Getting Married Says:

First off Aspen is one of my FAVORITE places for a wedding, especially a destination wedding. It’s beautiful anytime of year, and the scenery is stunning. I’ve seen T-Lazy-7 Ranch in both the summer and winter, and it is equally gorgeous in both. In fact, just last month we took a snowmobile tour at the Ranch, and it was one of our favorite days ever. I would opt for using the Lodge for a reception, just because it means having to bring in less catering equipment, but a wedding in a tent here would also be spectacular.
