The Tapestry House is one of my favorite wedding venues in all of Colorado. It’s a stunning Queen Anne Victorian house wedding venue in Northern Colorado located in the cute little farm town just west of Fort Collins called Laporte. This lovely wedding venue used to be a ranch in the late 1800’s known as the Hawkeye Ranch. The barn was built in 1880 and the home was built in 1890, both of which are fairly old for Colorado. The Tapestry House is not your typical old mansion, it’s in impeccable shape and done up in a painted lady style with lots of pretty colors on the home. I’m a huge fan of old homes like the Tapestry House. If I sound like I’m gushing, it’s probably because I bought a rough old Victorian home myself that was built in 1895 so I know all about how much work these old houses are just to keep up with let alone restore. And you can tell how much love and care went into restoring this beautiful home. I think it’s pretty great that couples can now spend their wedding day here and enjoy the beauty of this place too!
What I love so much about this wedding venue is that it’s a huge property and everywhere you turn, there is a new and beautiful area to use to create stunning photos. Not only is the blue green color of the home pleasing, but it has a ton of well kept gardens that provide so much beauty to work with. They have charming old barns on the property and a great indoor/outdoor type of space with arched windows for the wedding reception. There are a few different areas of the property that they use for weddings and I’ll do my best to describe them below and show some photos from the different areas to help you figure out if you want to add this gorgeous Colorado wedding venue to your site visit list.
Before we go in depth on the different spaces at Tapestry House, I wanted to briefly go over what to expect to pay for a wedding at this beautiful wedding venue. The Tapestry House is part of the Wedgewood Weddings family of wedding venues now and their pricing is actually extremely reasonable for the quality of this wedding venue. Tapestry House Weddings will cost you about $54-124 per person depending on the package you choose for your wedding day. And they do charge less for weddings that take place during the off season (this is such a cute place when there is snow on the ground!) They do not charge an extra venue fee for weddings that take place from December through March. Weddings that take place in April, May, or November are charged a venue fee of $295-$1,495 depending on which day of the week you choose. During the prime wedding season which is from June-October at the Tapestry House, weddings will cost you an extra $395-$2,995 depending on which day of the week you want to book your wedding celebration. They charge a 22% service fee and tax on top of these prices. Please be sure to check in with them directly to get completely up to date wedding prices.
The Tapestry House by Wedgewood Weddings has so many different areas at their venue that I think it’s best to showcase them with photos and describe them in their own section below.
I’m going to start with showcasing all of the beauty found at the Tapestry House in their outdoor spaces. As an amateur gardener, I am in love with all of the well-kept grounds at this historic home. There little bits of gardens sprinkled all over with fountains and quaint little features like mini rocking chairs with flowers spilling out. You’ll also find a huge lawn right outside the front of the home with a gazebo on one end making it the perfect outdoor ceremony space with beauty to be found both at the front of your wedding and at the back where you’ll walk down the aisle from this beautiful home. One nice touch I’ve noticed for the outdoor ceremony area is that they’ve paved part of the lawn so your guests will not sink into the grass as they walk in and take their seats. There are a ton of trees throughout the edges providing privacy and shade as well. And all of the historic, cute outbuildings found throughout the property make for some really unique photo backdrops too.
At the Tapestry House, you can host smaller, more intimate weddings inside this historic Victorian home. All of the weddings I’ve photographed there so far have been during the warmer months so very little time was spent on the inside of the home but I plan to add more photos of the interior of this home later on. Another indoor space is the reception pavilion at Tapestry House which has two different sections. One section is completely indoors and features beautiful arched windows framed with stone and twinkle lights and white fabric hanging from the ceiling rafters. The other section of the reception pavilion is more like a covered patio space with frosted glass ceiling with some sort of metal rafters overhead. I love this space so much because there is a ton of beautiful natural light in that section of the pavilion.
I hope that I’ve convinced you to at least go take a look at the Tapestry House. It’s been a favorite wedding venue in the Fort Collins area since 2004 now and it’s easy to see why. When you walk around the property, you’ll notice all of the bricks with previous couples’ names and their wedding dates who have all had the chance to be a part of the Tapestry House history too.
