Meet Spruce Mountain’s Catering Partners: The Best 7 Caterers in Colorado!

One of the biggest items on any wedding budget is the catering cost. At Spruce Mountain we give our couples the ability to choose from a variety of different caterers. This allows each couple an option to pick a caterer that meets their needs, as well as their budget. We asked each of our caterers to give us information about their catering company, and their cost for buffet and plated options at Spruce Mountain, which we have listed below (in no particular order).  We hope this information gives you the details you need to select the best caterer for your wedding.
