LePlatt’s Pond is located on L-J Ranch, which is home to 100 acres nestled in the heart of the Pine River Valley in Bayfield, Colorado. The Pine River runs through the ranch, and the venue sits along side our ten acre lake, where you will also find countless streams winding throughout the property. The lush hay meadows and giant cottonwoods set the perfect scene, and our guests especially love strolling through the Pine River Hops garden. We have provided the finest rentals available on site for your convenience.  We pride ourselves in going above and beyond to make your vision come to life with our coordination package.


LePlatt’s Pond  is the perfect place for a fairytale wedding! First, the property is absolutely stunning. Upon driving in, you are surrounded by the hops field. Continue farther down to the field where the beautifully decorated tent and amazing pond are found. Krii Black and her staff go above and beyond to make your day go smoothly and stress free, from set up to tear down, they do it all. We had the option to get ready on site at a loft by the venue. Krii and her crew know what they are doing and focus on making sure they help you have the best day. We opted for the day-of coordination package that gives you access to the venue for the whole weekend along with Krii’s planning expertise. Krii and her staff included two meetings with us prior to the wedding day to come up with a timeline of our day. They also took the reigns and coordinated with all the other vendors by giving them their own timelines. This was hands-down the best thing a bride could ask for. You tell them exactly what you want and they make it happen. All you have to do is show up and get hitched!  -Katelyn
