Weddings at River Bend Ranch

Mountain weddings are stunning, particularly here beside our private lake with Missionary Ridge painting the perfect backdrop!  Not to be outdone, the sandstone cliffs to the west are equally breathtaking and help to create one of the most beautiful venues you’ll ever see. 
Be sure to check out our wedding gallery slideshow at the bottom of this page.

Durango’s relaxed wedding venue

We love the scenery, and we are also proud to be Durango’s relaxed wedding venue!  We don’t do stress here, in fact our goal is to create a relaxed environment for your wedding and everything we do is designed to support that objective.  You’ll take a deep breath of fresh mountain air knowing that your venue will take care of you.
