Here’s a short recap on a few fun local wedding venues: Austin’s Homestead – http://www.austinshomestead.com/ – Austin’s Homestead is located in the heart of Water Valley and in the center of the prestigious Pelican Lakes Golf Course. There are great views of the Rocky Mountains, the rolling fairways, and crystal clear lakes. Planet Bluegrass – http://www.bluegrass.com/“Your magical day: welcoming family into your own haven under mature Cottonwoods and redstone cliffs; your ceremony surrounded by lush green grasses and stands of apple trees; the solitude and celebration tinted by the gentle sound of the North St. Vrain River; your friends relaxing among historic ranch buildings, an outdoor bar, and colorful wildflower gardens; your guests enjoying an elegant meal and dancing in the beautiful Wildflower Pavilion. Taken from the Planet Bluegrass website (http://www.bluegrass.com/) this description doesn’t even really do the location justice! Beautiful grounds for a wedding, that’s for sure! Preserve at Bingham Hill – http://www.thepreserveatbinghamhill.com/One of Fort Collins newest event centers, the Preserve at Bingham Hill is beautiful! Located only minutes from downtown Fort Collins Co., the venue offers a natural tranquil setting where nature and spirit come together. With twelve acres of trees, rolling grassy lawns, large gardens, several water features and a pond teeming with trout; the Preserve at Bingham Hill will help create that one of a kind event. Drake Center – http://drakecentre.com/ With a few different banquet halls, space outside and central location, The Drake Center is great!
