Gorrono Ranch is one of our favorite wedding venues in Telluride. I shot my first wedding here 12 years ago while I was a still a staff winter photographer for Telluride Ski Resort and fell in love the stunning mountain views, rustic feel, and the way the light traverse the ceremony site.
“Gorrono Ranch is a truly unique mountain venue perched on the side of the San Juan mountain range. Named after the family that built the ranch, Gorrono was a Basque sheep herder’s farm in the 1800’s. Today Gorrono is our mid-mountain ski lodge and our main dining venue for skiers and snowboarders. During the summer months Gorrono is accessed by a mountain road and is a popular choice for destination weddings and corporate dinners. Gorrono has multiple outdoor decks—one that is typically used as the ceremony and reception site, with the Wilson Mountain Range as its backdrop. In addition to the main lodge there are two smaller historic cabins that can be used as private bride & groom dressing rooms, gaming rooms, a venue for scotch/cigar/wine tastings, or your own cabin for private winter luncheons during the ski season. Within the main lodge there are two large dining rooms, cozy stone fireplaces and plenty of space for bands, DJ’s and dancing. Gorrono can accommodate groups up to 200 guests.” -Telski
