The St. Vrain

The St. Vrain in Longmont, Colorado is a luxurious, industrial wedding venue that features beautiful, original brick walls, chandeliers, bride and groom suites, cocktail hour spaces, and an open ceremony and reception space that is ready for you to make your own.

I love that the St. Vrain is full of opportunities to take advantage of natural light, the “first look nook”, and how close it is to parks with mountain views. The staff and amenities at the St. Vrain truly can’t be beat, I love photographing weddings here!

The Pines at Genesee

The Pines is at Genesee is a short 30 minute drive from downtown Denver with a beautiful outdoor ceremony space nestled in a grove of pine trees. The indoor reception space has a working fireplace and huge windows to create a warm and bright atmosphere.

The pine trees surrounding the ceremony space and string lights above make for one of my favorite places to photograph couples while they say their “I dos”.

Lionsgate Event Center

Lionsgate Event Center feature three stunning venues on their property – The Dove House, The Gatehouse, and The Chandelier Barn. Each of them include thoughtful, beautiful details hand made or selected by the family that built and owns the venue. There is no shortage of stunning places to get ready, have your ceremony and reception, and take beautiful photos on the ground of Lionsgate Event Center.

The variety of ceremony and reception spaces and the thoughtful, creative touches throughout make Lionsgate Event Center an exciting venue to photograph weddings at.

Denver Botanic Gardens

The Denver Botanic Gardens has no shortage of beautiful spaces to fit the most intimate elopements to 300+ celebrations; every ceremony and reception spot is surrounded by gorgeous flowers and greenery. When you decide to have your wedding here, you get the care and attention of a dedicated staff and have access to the entire gardens for photographs during your big day.

There is stunning scenery around every corner at the Denver Botanic Garden, I love the many opportunities there are for couples to tuck away for a quiet moment surrounded by flowers.

Balistreri Vineyards

Located just 10 minutes from downtown Denver, Balistreri Vineyards has a lovely garden space and ballroom to create a romantic setting for your wedding day. Balistreri features greenery, natural wood throughout, and a grand staircase perfect for a grand entrance! This beautiful venue is perfect for wine lovers seeking a natural setting in Denver.

I always look forward to how Balistreri Vineyards feels like a little green oasis in downtown Denver. The string lights and vines in the ceremony space exude romance and create the perfect setting for couples to say “I do.”

Cable Center

The Cable Center is sophisticated and contemporary venue just 15 minutes from downtown Denver. With a great hall, wrap around indoor balcony, and iconic terrazzo world map floor, this venue is one of the most unique and elegant venues in Denver. Whether you want to host an intimate gathering in the gardens or a large, 400 person event, there is a space for you to make your own at the Cable Center.

I love the clean lines and wall of windows that make this contemporary space so bright.

YMCA of the Rockies – Estes Park Center

Surrounded on three sides by Rocky Mountain national park, YMCA of the Rockies – Estes Park center has no shortage of stunning views. There are three different ceremony sites to choose from, each with a back drop of mountains and surrounded by nature. Not only is there no shortage of amazing views at YMCA of the Rockies, but they have warm, cozy cabins for you and your guests to stay in after celebrating the night away.

The YMCA of the Rockies has everything an outdoor loving couple could dream of and I love the drama of the mountains in the back and then walking through the trees to capture some quiet moments.

Wild Basin Lodge

Located in Allenspark, Colorado, Wild Basin Lodge is an all-inclusive, family owned Colorado wedding venue. Say your vows in front of a beautiful meadow with mountains in the background or surrounded by trees along the river and then take the party to the lodge, enjoy dinner made my their on site chef, dance the night away before heading upstairs to your comfortable suite. Wild Basin Lodge truly has it all.

I love the variety of nature-centric views at Wild Basin Lodge and how all the guests stand on the balcony to watch first dances under the string lights by the river, such a magical scene.
