Kendra & Dillon | Married on 3/27/2021 | 5 Stars"The Vista at Applewood was absolutely amazing! Savanna and the rest of the staff was out of this world helpful! My husband and I wanted a simple yet fun wedding and they made it happen! We didn’t have to worry about the small details or anything really. We basically showed up and enjoyed our day! Savanna is a dream come true when it comes to an event coordinator! She’s brilliant and very easy to work with! I cannot say enough great things about this venue and the staff! I would do my wedding day over and over again just so I could use this venue! I highly recommend The Vista!"
Chrissy & Sean | Married on 10/31/2020 | 5 Stars"I could not have found a better venue! They did an AMAZING job, especially with the pandemic! Made sure all of our needs were met! The days leading up and the day of were completely stress free due to the team at The Vista at Applewood!"
Kelly & Dan | Married on 9/19/2020 | 5 Stars"Due to wildfires, my daughter's mountain wedding had to be changed to Applewood the weekend before the wedding. Savannah and Ashley worked very hard and did a great job with the transition. Everything went smoothly and was beautiful on such short notice. The food is the best I have had at a wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better experience in light of the quick changes. Savannah was at the venue and available from morning to late at night!"
Allison & Adam | Married on 9/11/2020 | 5 Stars"This venue is the perfect place to get married. Now I lead with that sentence meaning every word. I mean PERFECT. The staff was beyond kind and accommodating. They were able to provide a safe and pleasant experience while still observing all guidance from the CDC. It made for a perfect day at THE perfect venue. Look at the pictures, envision the sunset. It’s amazing. Thank you Savanna and staff!!!"
Jessica & Steven | Married on 9/5/2020 | 5 Stars"The most beautiful wedding I could have ever dreamed of! The Vista at Applewood Golf Course was my favorite location to have my wedding. Being from out of state, we were only able to book and communicate online and on the phone, but everyone at the The Vista was so helpful and friendly. When we had to switch our wedding date due to COVID, they were so reassuring and made everything possible. The venue is gorgeous and we had a wonderful wedding day. All of the staff were so nice and friendly. They ensured the safety and well-being of all of our guests throughout the entire day. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day at the Applewood Golf Course! Thank you again to Savanna, Jenelle, Jeff and Eric and the rest of the staff!"

"I cannot say enough wonderful and lovely things about Savanna, the Director of Events, and the Vista! Initially my husband and I planned for a destination wedding and due to COVID those plans had to change, quickly. We contacted The Vista and did a walk through on June 19th, by the following week we were booked for July 4th.
Savanna helped us set up our decorations for the ceremony and reception. She also was a tremendous help for our rehearsal. All in all, Savanna was a DOLL.
On the day of our wedding things went seamlessly. Jeff, Eric and the wait staff were impeccable and kept up with our rowdy crew. We appreciated each and every thing that they did to make our day super special and easy going. We even got to have our dogs join and be with us during the ceremony!
Having a wedding during this time was stressful, but The Vista made it work for us and made it incredibly special. We can’t thank them enough."
Jordynn Akins | Married on 6/20/2020 | 5 Stars"They were awesome, we had to plan an event short notice and they put it together in no time. Beat our expectations and provided a beautiful venue excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere. Our coordinator Savanna was attentive and helpful. Couldn’t recommend more!"
Lindsay & Frankie | Married on 5/30/2020 | 5 Stars"The team at the Vista made my wedding day absolutely perfect despite COVID-19. They were incredibly responsive and stayed on top of the local guidelines. They were ready to bring the catering to another location for a smaller wedding if we couldn't have it at the golf course. My photographer backed out last minute and they found me another photographer whose photos turned out to be absolutely amazing! I was so impressed by everyone working there and how much work they put into my special day. The venue is beautiful and while very accessible, it still feels very private. I would recommend this wedding venue to anyone who wanted to get married on a golf course."

I literally cannnot day enough good things about Keely and the staff at The Vista at Applewood.
From our first visit with Keely to our wedding day was about 7 weeks. Keely was absolutely amazing to work with. I had no idea what I needed to do or when it needed to be done. Keely has tons of experience and was always happy to provide suggestions for vendors and make sure everything was on track. She kept in touch and even helped locate specialty items like an amazing rose gold tablecloth for our cake table. I honestly don’t think I could have pulled off such an amazing wedding without her!
The venue is absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately we got the one snowy day in like 6 weeks and could not use the outside ceremony space but we took some photos near it (in the snow) which I think will be gorgeous. The inside is well maintained and many of our guests commented on how nice it was. The food was amazing and nobody went hungry with the buffet options provided.
But better than the venue was the staff who helped us set up, keep things going and finish up the night. Tatum and Heather went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Every staff member was friendly and wonderful to the guests.
I would absolutely recommend this venue! My wedding day would not have been as amazing without the staff at The Vista at Applewood."
Danielle | Married on 09/09/2018 | 5 Stars"The Vista at Applewood Golf Course far exceeded our expectations of any wedding venue we toured, and we feel as though we got more than our money’s worth. Keely went above and beyond to ensure that not only was everything organized but she helped to bring our wedding vision to life. She was quick to respond to all inquiries and was very helpful in talking through all options with us. Jeff, the food and beverage manager, spent the entire evening sprinting around the reception hall ensuring that everything went off without a hitch, while also constantly checking on my husband and I to see what we needed. The food was outstanding and Chef gave us one of the most delicious meals of our life (the appetizers are to die for and the steak was perfect). The entire staff was professional, friendly, and provided outstanding service not only to us and our wedding party but our guests as well. Furthermore, the venue and the view itself is absolutely amazing - it has the real "Colorado feel" we were looking for and provides spectacular views from afternoon into the evening hours. I cannot tell you how many comments our guests made about the beauty and service The Vista at Applewood provided us. I would wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend this venue for your wedding or any large event!"
Sue, mother of bride | Married on 06/29/2018 | 5 Stars"We were so happy with our experience at the Vista. Keely and Tatum and the whole staff were amazing to work with. Our guests commented on their friendliness and attentiveness. The food was great. Everything was perfect!"

"The team at Applewood was beyond amazing! They were there for us every step of the way! When we found out the catering manager was leaving two months before our wedding, I’ll admit I was a bit nervous. Jeff, the head bartender, sat in on our tasting to make sure the transition was seem less! Keely then stepped in and we knew we were in excellent hands! Every single person at Applewood made our guests feel at home and, because of them, our day was absolutely perfect!!!!
Applewood is a great two-in-one! They provide the catering and the chef is out of this world! He accommodated our nut free and gluten free friends. The food at the cocktail hour was phenomenal and our friends and family cannot stop talking about how absolutely delicious their dinner was!"
Becky | Married on 06/09/2018 | 5 Stars"The staff at the Vista Applewood was amazing! Everything went really well and all were so helpful in this process. The only hiccup was the one hour of cash bar was supposed to be through the dinner hour but was not. "Fish" was very accommodating and made everything work. The food was phenomenal! we got lots of comments on how good the food was so thank you to the chef!! Thanks so much to Keely, Tatum, Fish and all other staff that assisted on 6/9/18!! Will for sure recommend to others getting married!!"
