Mountain Goat Lodge {Salida Wedding Venue}

Comments Off on Mountain Goat Lodge {Salida Wedding Venue}

If you are looking for a cool and unique farm experience then Mountain Goat Lodge is the place for you! Located just west of Salida on U.S. 285, this venue is a bed and breakfast with a working goat herd that provides the milk, cheese and yogurt served at breakfast and used in cheese making classes.

Gina and her family are great to work with and the lodge is big enough for lots of guests. Several retro campers are also available for overnight stays. The goat pasture is a perfect to set up our 20×40 high peak tents and there’s nice views of the Sawatch Range to the west.

2016 Events in Review

Comments Off on 2016 Events in Review

Celebrating 5 years in Central Colorado! Thousand of miles, eight counties, and over 170 events in 2016 –  it was a great season! From Breckenridge to Rye and Crested Butte to Denver we met amazing people and saw amazing things. We remembered the camera more this year, here are some of the events SER was a part of. Keep in mind, the majority of our events are not fully set up before we leave.

There are so many options in Chaffee County to host an event. Some we discover through our clients like the Denver couple which hosted several events for all their guests. House Rock Kitchen on East Main in Buena Vista held their welcome event. SER set up tenting to cover an L shape portion of the patio for guest seating.

First tent out of two being installed at Big Horn Lodge, which is west of Nathrop, Colorado on CR 162. We often have brides panic when the blue tarp comes out before the white top. The blue tarp is a ground cloth to help us protect our white canopies and walls during installation. Our tents are only 2 years old and we do all we can to help keep them looking new!

With all the amazing views in the Colorado Rockies we are never surprised what our next venue will be. This wedding was held at the Bride’s family home west of Buena Vista. Our 35×40 Hex tent is great alone for events with 40-90 people. Or, if you have a larger crowd, use it with one of our other tents to create a space that fits your needs.

It’s not often we are guests at a wedding but we made it to one of our dear friend’s wedding in August! Ceremony was at the summit of Poncha Pass. A rain storm rolled in right at ceremony time and thankfully the Retro Camper Lounge was there for the bride and bridesmaids. Everyone else waited out the storm in vehicles. The ceremony ended up taking place under the 20×20 tent that was initially installed for shade, but ended up being used to keep the crowd dry! A lovely reception featured a backyard party with BBQ, mac and cheese cook off, marshmallow roasting & dancing.

Just 10 minutes west of Salida, Bright Start Ranch is a beautiful log home sitting on 40 acres facing the Sawatch Range.

If you’re an outdoor couple like most Coloradans, take another look at public lands for your next event. The San Isabel National Forest or Royal Gorge BLM offer special group permits to host your event off the grid around Chaffee County. With plenty of space and wild views this option is becoming a popular way to create a special event for you and your guests.

Hutchinson Ranch is tucked behind cottonwood trees along the Little Arkansas River between Salida and Poncha Springs. Hutchinson Ranch was established in 1868 to raise cattle by some of the first pioneers in the valley. Today cattle still run the land and you will often see some in the pasture or corrals when driving into the venue. When the barn isn’t quite big enough for all your family and friends SER can set up a tent. We can aslo provide tables, chairs, sound, trash cans, lighting, heating and additional equipment for this location.

When our Hex tent came out this year, it was the star of the show. Centered between two 20×40 tents it creates a center area for mingling guests and food service. The panorama window walls are perfect to keep the rain out, warm the tent and allow your guests to see the Rocky Mountain views.

This local bride had a beautiful event at her parent’s home located on the Arkansas River just outside of Salida, Colorado. The tenting was set up in the horse arena close to the barn. The barn was converted into a bar with a lounge area. Guests camped with their dogs along the river and took solar showers with water heated by the sun.

Rancho Caballo west of Buena Vista is part of the YoungLife Trails West camp. The location is a working ranch and offers amazing views and farm animals to watch.  With two large families and a lot of friends, this couple had over 200 guests.

Fall 2016 was one of the most beautiful SER has had. Warm, cloudless days and crisp nights made perfect conditions for outdoor events. For two years in a row we have had our last big wedding of the year at Big Horn Lodge. When the bride chooses all of our best pieces it’s one to watch. And, it’s all local with members of Heart of the Rockies Wedding Association providing key elements.

Tucked back in the trees near Mt. Princeton this family’s property was on 1,500 acres overlooking the Chalk Cliffs, Collegiate Peaks and Upper Arkansas Valley. Ceremony was held near large ponderosa pine trees and guests then gathered at the family home under SER tents. The clients called early and Settings Event Rental was able to assist with a site review to determine exactly how the tents and equipment would be installed.

Heart of the Rockies Un-Bridal Show

Comments Off on Heart of the Rockies Un-Bridal Show

bridal Show-poster-2016-Salida Colorado

Heart of the Rockies Wedding Association will be hosting the 2016 Un-Bridal show at the SalidaSteam Plant on January 30, 2016. 

The Un-Bridal show is not your traditional booth show. Set up as a more modern reception-style showcase proved both fun and hassle-free for vendors and brides-to-be! 

The event will look and feel like a mock-wedding reception. Vendors and brides-to-be will mingle on the ballroom floor, with the opportunity to try food from caterers, see live table displays and floral arrangements. 

Some vendors will have a small booth space to showcase additional work, but the focus of the Un-Bridal Show is to meet and mingle — not be stuck behind a table.

Save the date, January 30 from 1-4pm. Salida SteamPlant Event Center
