I originally was to have my wedding at the Evergreen Lake House, unfortunately my venue was flooded the day before. The Pines at Genesee was our only option for my wedding to go on. I spoke with Lindsay and Abbey, I had to fire all of my vendors because they wouldn't allow our food or bartender into the building. I had to pay thousands extra for them to make my food. They tried to book me for an outdoor ceremony when the forecast all weekend was rain. They couldn't make any blended drinks with my ore purchased alcohol because their " bartenders" didn't have the supplies nor did they have a blender. They also wouldn't let the groom and groomsmen take a shot at the reception. They shoved my cake table in a dark corner and made it so no one could see us cutting the cake. My timeline was crammed and we had barely any time to dance, and tried to charge us $500 for one hour extra. They wouldn't allow us to blow bubbles for our closing ceremony. This venue could have been an unsung hero to our disaster flood wedding but instead they sucked as much money as they could from us without any regard to what we just went through. They made me much more stressed out and quite unhappy with how they treated us. I would not ever recommend this place to anyone I know
The Pines at Genesee responded with the following comments:
I am very sorry you were unhappy. It is very difficult to move your wedding so last minute. We did try our best to accommodate everything for you. We went out of our way as much as possible to help with only 2 days notice. I have tried to address all of your concerns in this response, but we are happy to discuss anything with you. We reduced our cost significantly for the venue, provided your catering, provided all your plates, forks etc. at no additional charge, helped with all the day-of coordination, helped set up your napkins, centerpieces and favors and tried our very best to make you as happy as possible. Because we are a catering company and have a food service license, we cannot have outside caterers in the kitchen. However, it was also our understanding that your caterer had no record of your order and even if you had been able to have your event at your original venue and the weather was beautiful, you would not have had any food, servers, plates or utensils. We provide our bartenders at no additional cost and also contacted the bartending service directly to ensure that you were able to get a refund for the services they would not be able to provide. We were unaware that you wanted blended drinks. We do have blenders, but need some advance notice to have them set up. We do not allow shots because they can result in significant problems, but I believe that this is common for most venues. We also try not to talk anyone into any "extras" like an outdoor ceremony, but we wanted to make sure you were aware of all of your options. We do allow bubbles for your exit at the end of the event and I am not sure who told you that you could not do it - we actually set out your bubbles with your favors ourselves. When your father asked us about adding extra time, we told him the cost and recommended that he wait to make the decision until the night of the wedding to make sure you actually wanted it. When the time came, we were told that you did not want to add the extra time because people were starting to leave and you did not need the extra dance time. Again, I am so sorry that your original venue flooded and the weather was bad. It did seem that the event went well and we wish you the very best in your married life.

We had our wedding here 1 month ago and it was a great experience. Regan was our day of coordinator and she was so efficient and helpful getting everyone where they needed to go and making sure everything went smoothly! Had a little bit of a struggle getting to some places for photos but everyone was flexible all around!

The staff was incredible! There were so efficient, kind, and organized. All of my questions and needs were addressed promptly. The venue itself is so pretty! I went through a hard time in the beginning of my wedding planning realizing how much everything costs, but for the price I would say Pines is worth it! The food also was really great, no complaints from any of our guests, everyone loved it, and the staff was so helpful getting out the gluten/nut-free dishes to the right people. I want to give a particular shout out to Yariela, our wedding coordinator the day of. She was so thoughtful, helpful, and kind. She was never rude to anyone even when some of our guests tried to be rule breakers. She was always there keeping things organized and on time. She was such a huge help! I'm grateful to all the staff. Our wedding was simply perfect and everyone helped make it so.

The Pines at Genesee was the perfect location for our wedding! We loved the rustic/mountain vibe, but it was still close enough to Denver for our guests. We were able to use the space for photos before, even though we did not have our ceremony there. I love the layout of the venue - multiple spaces for guests to hang out in during cocktail hour and to take a break from dancing. The food was delicious!! I highly recommend the build-your-own-mac'n'cheese bar - my guests all raved about it! Lindsey was our coordinator and she was so helpful on the day-of to walk us through everything - I knew I could count on her for whatever we needed. It was great we could purchase our own liquor and we saved so much money that way, but I did hear some guests comment on the weak drinks, which I would agree with. However, overall I would totally recommend the Pines!

The Pines at Genesee is AMAZING!!! From the first visit and consultation to the final day of our wedding, we couldn't be happier with our experience. We had our first visit and consultation with Regan and I have to tell you that I feel lucky to have been able to work with her during this process. We were sold on the venue after our first visit and from then on, Regan was on top of everything that we needed. Questions, suggestions, and advice were given in a timely manner and I felt like she took a real interest in our special day. She was there as our coordinator on the day of our wedding and then for the reception that followed. One of the best things we found about The Pines is that they offer a vendor package for many of the services you would need. We liked that they offered a couple of different options for each of vendors as well as a complete list of people/companies that they work with on a regular basis. This was super helpful for us to pick and choose reputable vendors. The venue itself is beautiful. We chose the Evergreen Terrace to hold our ceremony. It was perfect. Our guests have not stopped talking about how beautiful it was. The backdrop of large rocks, trees, and the sun shining into the trees provided the best scenery for our ceremony and pictures. The reception was equally as awesome. We had the Lower Level of the Pines. The layout and setup of the room was setup exactly how we had asked. It was very pretty and comfortable for the guests. THE FOOD IS OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!! Every guest at our wedding raved about the food. We did the Walk Around Feast option and upgraded to the Prime Rib as one of our entrees. Everything was delicious and there were enough options to satisfy every guest. Everyone on the staff was very nice and professional during our event. We had such a great day and I can't imagine getting married at any other venue.

I absolutely loved having my ceremony and reception at The Pines at Genesee. I live in Dallas and while I was trying to figure out all of the details of the day all of the girls there were super helpful. Vivian was my contact person and she was absolutely great. She helped me make arrangements and decisions and answered a million of my questions! She made everything run smoothly before and on our special day. The location is beautiful and the people are awesome!

We just had our wedding here and I can't say enough good things about this place. The food was great and the staff was extremely helpful with the setup and clean up afterwards that it really was an easy transition. It is a little difficult for people to get to but the location is very beautiful. Vivian was very easy to work with and made the day less stressful for me. She really did an amazing job and answered all my questions and was very responsive. Having the option of bringing our liquor was such a huge savings that we had an open bar all night. They have so many choices in food that it's really hard to go wrong with anything you choose. I would highly recommend the pines.
