Dig the idea of a western theme for your nuptials but not the hoedown kitsch? Then Red Cliff Ranch is the destination for you. Its sublime combination of rugged good looks and a breathtaking setting amid meadows and mountains resemble a Ralph Lauren ad come to life. “You don’t have to create the beauty here; you can simply enhance what nature gives,” says owner Virginia Whitby. An open-air pavilion set amid four private lakes makes for a picturesque ceremony venue, while the nearby event stable sets the stage for a memorable reception – with nary a barn smell or horsefly to be had. The upscale stable space embodies a warm ambience that’s perfect for a seated dinner.
