As I think back over the past 10 years, one of the things that amazes me the most is how many incredible places my photography journey has taken me. We’re lucky to live in such a beautiful state with oodles and oodles of stunning wedding venues. I mean, have you ever googled “Colorado Wedding Venues”?? There are 1.5 million results.
Ok, ok, I know there aren’t actually 1.5 million Colorado wedding venues, but sometimes it feels like it.
So, in continued celebration of my 10 years in business, and my wedding special (if you haven’t looked at that, you should 😉 ), here are some of my favorite Colorado wedding venues!
Ok, ok, I might be a liiiiittle partial to this venue because my husband and I got married at the original Space Gallery five years ago. But I swear, even if I hadn’t have gotten married there, I’d still love it just as much.
And it’s dripping with gorgeous art from wall to wall.
Use bunches of decor, or use a minimal amount. You just can’t go wrong.
Plus, there’s a massive patio for outdoor ceremonies, or the perfect area for indoor ceremonies.

Such a modern, yet intimate space.

And plenty of room to dance!

Did I mention that Space Gallery is right next to some of my favorite alleys in Denver for some fun nighttime shots?
Riverbend is a fairly new venue, located a little bit north of Denver, but so worth the drive. A huge grassy area is perfect for an outdoor ceremony, and the dance floor is neighbored by a running river. There’s even a cute little cottage for getting ready and an amazing, open tent for dinner!
If you’re looking for a ceremony site with a true feeling of Colorado, Riverbend is it!
Reception dancing right beside the river….doesn’t get much better than that.
The perfect touch of classic style.
The open courtyard and outdoor patio.
The luscious garden and expansive grounds.
Now that’s how you make an incredible wedding venue.
Villa Parker’s grounds are perfect for romantic portraits. There’s great spots all over the venue!
One of my favorite parts about Villa Parker is the incredible open field just in front of the venue. Tall grasses, dreamy light, and if it’s the right season it’s full of sunflowers!
Mountain views for your ceremony….check.
Gorgeous lodge for your reception…check.
Outdoor dancing with gorgeous lights…check.
Such a perfect venue to enjoy the beautiful fall colors!
And the outdoor dancing area can’t be beat!
The past two times I’ve photographed at Wedgewood Boulder Creek, it was cold. And I mean cold. But even in the cold and snow, this venue is gorgeous. A unique indoor ceremony space and seasonal tent give couples tons of choices on how they want to make their day unique.
Someday I’ll get the chance to photograph an outdoor ceremony under the arch at Wedgewood, but it made for a pretty perfect backdrop with snow falling from the sky.
The drapery in this tent makes me drool.
Colorado has so many fantastic wedding venues, and these are just a few! Finding a venue that fits your personality, matches the style of your wedding, and has that certain special something is the most important part. If you haven’t found it yet, keep searching!!
