5 Best Locations to Get Married at in Denver

I love Denver, Colorado. So much so that my husband and I moved near there. I have some amazing friends there and I've been to visit multiple times. Since I've traveled around quite a bit here, I thought it would be awesome to give you some ideas for the best places to get married in Denver. So without further ado, here are my picks for the best wedding venues in Denver:

1. Red Rocks

The Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is one of the more popular places to get married in Denver, CO. It has the amazing beauty of the rock formations and excellent staff to help your day go splendidly. It's perfect for that intimate breathtaking view.

2. Moss Denver

Moss Denver is one of my favorite downtown Denver wedding locations for the urban bride. Think loft style with brick, open ceilings, and concrete floors. It houses at most 200 guests which I think is the perfect size. 

3. Denver Botanical Gardens - York Street

If you're more into the floral and fauna locations, look no further than the Denver Botanical Gardens. The location on York Street offers lush gardens as the background to your wedding. I have friends who love that garden atmosphere, so I recommended this for their wedding venue. 

4. Church Ranch Event Center

The Church Ranch and Event Center has everything you could ever need to setup the best wedding ever. Their staff and vendors are the best: completely organized without the Bride needing to plan too much. It has a stunning location that makes for some excellent photos too!

5. Shupe Homestead

Last but certainly not least, the Shupe Homestead is perfect for the rustic Bride in you. Mountain views, amazing barns, and a setting in the country are the perfect venue descriptions to get the country Brides out there! 

 

I hope this helps you find the right place in Denver to get married. If you have any suggestions, please comment below! I'm always on the lookout for new places to suggest to my Brides.

California Winery Wedding | Rebecca + Nicholas

High school sweethearts, Rebecca and Nicholas knew each other long before they ever got together. And while it took a little bit of time to convince Nicholas to try dating Rebecca, it was well worth the wait. One of the deeply magical things about this wedding was the intensity at which Nicholas now loves this Bride. If it takes some time for someone to get to that love, I think we'd all be willing to wait. 

I was in LOVE with all of the details at this wedding. These are some of my favorite images to date and I had a hard time narrowing down what to show you! I hope you love seeing tons of photos, because here they come!

Wedding Prep

The gentlemen got ready at the upper house, which came complete with an adorable outhouse. I know, outhouse and "adorable" don't normally go together, but this one had an outdoor sink and mirror.

There was not a dry eye in the audience when the Groom said his vows. Even I was tearing up. This is what I meant by the depth of his love for her.

So this was fun. The couple played a game where they are given questions and raised a shoe to indicate who they think the statement pertains to. For example, who is most likely to flake on the laundry:

What a great candle lit evening to celebrate the union of these two amazing individuals.

Rehearsal Dinner | Adam + Lindsey

Lindsey, one of my bridesmaids and best friends, asked me to photograph her rehearsal dinner the night before her wedding. I was absolutely down for that, and I was able to convince her to let me add on an engagement session (which you can see here). It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed listening to all of the speeches. It is abundantly clear that these two individuals are well loved. And their marriage is clearly blessed!

Lindsey's step-mom Kristen helped plan out the rehearsal dinner, and included this adorable little table setup. Tomorrow certainly IS going to be the best day ever.
