Celebrate your special event at River Bend Ranch. Located only two miles North of the Durango city limits, this magical venue is filled with beautiful scenery sure to make your special day one you will never forget!

River Bend Ranch sits on 22 acres of the most beautiful mountain and river property you can imagine overlooking the red cliffs of Missionary Ridge and a private five acre lake. Hold your celebration under the old cottonwood trees or in our 3.000 square foot heated indoor/outdoor venue.

Your perfect Durango mountain wedding awaits!


This venue worked out great for us because it allowed us to do all of the things that we wanted to at our wedding. We wanted to be close to Durango because all of our guests had already traveled so far. We wanted to do something at our wedding that had “Wow” factor—which turned out to be renting the DSNGR diesel train to take everyone out to our wedding. The ranch could accommodate our 175 guests and has an absolutely gorgeous backdrop with a lake and fountain and the red cliffs in the background. I also loved the beautiful exposed wood barn and event tent that would shelter guests in case it rained (it didn’t).  -Cammie

Cruising to Durango to Get Married

Cruising to Durango to Get Married

We asked our guests to bring their motorcycles out to Durango because we knew they had no idea of the beautiful scenery they would experience. The day prior to the wedding, we all rode the Million Dollar Highway to Telluride and, needless to say, they all loved the area and want to come back to Durango.

A Texas Celebration in Durango

Every summer we would visit Colorado, I fell in love the scenery and thought it would be the most beautiful place to have a wedding. Everything in Durango is modern with a rustic twist and I thought this would be a wonderful theme for our wedding.
