We’re Kinsey and Katie


We’re sisters-in-law, business partners, and the faces behind Vista View Events at Open Heart Ranch. 

This is our home. 

We opened Vista View Events with a dream of creating something different. It wasn’t about sweeping out an old barn and renting it. It was about creating a modern space where couples—and their guests—could connect with the outdoors without compromising on their wedding vision. 


Our venue sits on a beautiful hillside overlooking Harvey Gap Reservoir with panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains in Rifle, Colorado. 

Having your wedding at Vista View Events will allow you to enjoy privacy in the countryside and receive personalized support from vendors who are the best in the industry. 

We are located…

25 minutes west of Glenwood Springs.

1 hour east of Grand Junction. 

1.5 hours west of Aspen. 

3 hours west of Denver 

Several hotels are located within 15 minutes of our venue and close to the local Starbucks (#priorities). Our couples have also taken advantage of VRBO and Airbnb and host their family and friends under one roof. 

Planning your wedding with us means taking advantage of all our area has to offer! Check out our Activity Guides for Colorado summer weddings and Colorado fall weddings
