Brown Palace Wedding

Emily and Rachel’s wedding took place in one of the most historic locations in Denver, The Brown Palace Hotel. The brides wanted a venue that was historic, beautiful, and allowed their guests to stay the night without worrying about travel, since most of their guests would be arriving from out of town. The Brown Palace is known for its show-stopping architecture, designed in an Italian Renaissance style. Situated in the heart of downtown Denver, it offered a perfect blend of urban charm and luxurious elegance, allowing many of their guests to experience a weekend filled with fun activities both in the city and in the mountains outside of Denver.

From the moment guests arrived, they were captivated by the hotel’s grandeur. The opulent lobby, with its beautifully stacked balconies and intricate iron railings, set the tone for a magical evening. The iconic atrium, where the famous Brown Palace High Tea is served, was a particular favorite of Emily and Rachel. Its stunning architecture provided a perfect backdrop for their photography sessions, and the brides decided to keep all their photos indoors to showcase the venue’s beauty as much as possible.

The architectural beauty of The Brown Palace was just one highlight of Emily and Rachel’s wedding. The chuppah Rachel built for their Jewish wedding ceremony was another showstopper. Draped in vibrant, lush flowers from one of Denver’s top florists, Yarrow and Spruce, the chuppah was a breathtaking sight. Above the chuppah, three meaningful prayer shawls from Rachel’s family formed a canopy, adding a deeply personal touch to the ceremony. These thoughtful details made the day even more memorable and unique.

As the ceremony concluded, the celebration shifted into high gear. Emily and Rachel spent the rest of the night dancing to the lively tunes of the nine-piece Diamond Empire Band, whose music kept the dance floor packed. The energy was infectious, and guests of all ages joined in the fun, creating a joyous atmosphere that perfectly matched the couple’s vibrant personalities.

In addition to the fantastic music, guests enjoyed catching up over drinks from the open bar and indulging in the delicious food. The menu featured a mouthwatering selection, including braised short rib and salmon, ensuring there was something for everyone. The culinary highlight was undoubtedly the wedding cake – a decadent red velvet and almond creation that left everyone craving more.

Throughout the night, a photo booth provided endless entertainment. Guests donned silly props and posed for fun, candid shots, creating a lively scrapbook of memories for Emily and Rachel to cherish. The photo booth was a hit, with guests lining up to capture their playful moments.

Emily and Rachel’s wedding at The Brown Palace Hotel was a perfect blend of historic elegance and modern celebration. The stunning venue, coupled with the couple’s personal touches and the lively atmosphere, made for an unforgettable day. Congratulations, Emily and Rachel!
