Speakeasy at Deer Creek Valley Ranch

Don’t you love 1920’s speakeasy parties? The staff at Deer Creek Valley Ranch do, and they used the Speakeasy theme for their annual Valentine’s “New Beginnings” wedding and event Party. Guests, vendors and brides gathered between 3-9 pm on Saturday February 17th to party speakeasy style.

Speakeasy Barn

The barn at Deer creek valley ranch had three levels of fun. On the ground floor in the man cave was the first of the fun and entertainment. Appetizers of cheese and crackers greeted guests. On the other side of the pool table you could get a glass of wine. Next to the bar Serendipity catering had a bacon dipping station and other tapas.

Music by A sharp DJ Service wafted down the stairs as you assented to the second floor. An old-Fashioned photo booth by Denver Shutter Booth was waiting to take your picture. Western saddle stools were lining the bas as you bellied up to get your beverage. Bar-B-Q sliders, with baked beans and Cole slaw wafted from the corner by Rocky Mountain Catering.

After a few more drinks, guests got up and tried another dance. With men facing ladies everyone learned to march to the beat of a Merengue. From there they mixed it up and traded partners down the line as they danced to a delightful beat.


Later in the evening Christian stood up to thank the guests for coming. Then Emma dug into the drawing can and gave prizes to the couples in attendance. The arrangements were raffled off next. Finally, happy guests made their way home.


Deer Creek Valley Ranch is a stunning wedding and event center. They really know how to put on a party. Their speakeasy was a raving success. The staff at Adventures in dance looks forward to doing more events with this delightful location.
