The Pines at Genesee, located in Golden, Colorado, is just a short 30 minute drive from Downtown Denver with two beautiful outdoor ceremony spaces nestled in a grove of pine trees in the mountains. The indoor reception space has a working fireplace and huge windows to create a warm and bright atmosphere. I love how close this venue is to beautiful mountain views. The pine trees surrounding both ceremony spaces and string lights above make for one of my favorite places to photograph couples while they say their “I dos”.
