Trip Report Family Vacation Part 3

Jump to last reply

We headed on down to Granby, CO for a "Destination Wedding". This was the first Destination Wedding I had ever been to. It was at Granby Ranch for my brother in law's brother (sister's husband's brother).

We took a ski lift to the top of the mountain and they had the ceremony overlooking the Rockies. Then we took a ski lift to the bottom of the mountain. The ceremony was the most memorable wedding I've ever been to, I guess venue does count!

Next up was the reception. Unfortunately, the reception was a bit flat. The food was gross, they had barbeque where the meat tasted like leather and the sauce was too tart. The baked potato was at least edible but who can mess up a baked potato.

So overall the wedding was a C+. Ceremony A+, Reception D-, overall C+.

Granby Ranch is a nice place but I would bring in my own caterers if I was to hold my wedding there (advice).
