It’s a favorite for Western celebrity weddings: Allison Williams married Ricky Van Veen there in 2015. So what makes this property so spectacular?
First of all, the dramatic setting: set on 30,000 acres, Brush Creek is nestled between the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountains. And if that isn’t enough vast wilderness for you: it abuts the million-acre Medicine Bow National Forest.
Guests are lodged in Luxury log cabins, decorated in a rustic chic fashion. Think antler light fixtures, rocking chairs, warm leather couches, western-print rugs, stonework, and accent pieces like wagon wheels, lassos, and framed paintings of trout. Architectural features include wood beams and wrap-around porches. Firepits for s’more-making abound.
Want to be closer to that starry-night sky? Go glamping and stay in the property’s 700 square-foot yurt.
There’s a good old-fashioned Western saloon, too, with bar games like darts, billiards, and poker. Just don’t get into a duel over a contested game of pool.
As for food, Brush Creek Ranch specialises in farm to table. And that’s not just a marketing term: there’s an actual farm on the property.
Thanks to Kloss’s Instagram, we know exactly what she, Kushner, and glamorous guests like Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and Princess Beatrice of York got up to during their time at Brush Creek Ranch. They went ATVing through the wilderness, horseback riding, and paintballing in camouflage. At night, it was time for karaoke, and line dancing in cowboy hats and denim-on-denim outfits. (Fun fact: Brush Creek Ranch has a venue called Cowboy Chapel and Dance Hall.) One evening, there was a fantastic fireworks display.
The festivities lasted three days. “Party on the prairie,” Kloss captioned one of her Instagrams. From the looks of it, that about sums it up.
