La Joya Dulce is a spectacular ranch venue nestled in the privacy of rolling hills beside the Sleeping Giant. There are 3 major highlights, in my mind, which make this property a unique choice for your wedding venue:
1) The location.
Nestled in the rolling hills with mountainous views 360 degrees…all within a 15 minute drive to downtown Steamboat Springs.
2) The privacy.
Your entire day and night can take place here so you can relax and enjoy the entire day! Your special day is yours and your guests only! I can’t tell you how many weddings I’ve witnessed where brides are rushed in and out. I personally like the idea of not having to look at a clock!
3) The welcoming hospitality of the owners.
I had a tour of the entire property by the friendly owners Kathie and Wayne. They are such kind, genuine people, and their welcoming personalities will make anyone comfortable.
Other features which make La Jaya Dulce a unique wedding venue:
You have choices where your ceremony and reception take place! There is a huge indoor riding arena which fits parties over 150 people. For smaller wedding parties, the furnished barn is a wonderful choice for the reception. There is also private quarters for bride and groom to get ready in the barn.
All of the sites for the ceremony have spectacular views, and are west facing so the sunset would be captured in photos.
Residing on the property are beautiful horses and cows, which enjoy treats and photo bombing!
Last but not least, my daughter’s favorite feature of the property is the on-site cotton candy machine, which is such a fun treat for children and adults at a reception!
I look forward to seeing a wedding in action at this amazing venue and capturing it in a painting! it will be a great task to cram all of the beauty here into one canvas!
