Venue Spotlight: Denver Botanic Gardens

Chelsea Pellegrino


When you think Denver, you probably picture the majestic Rocky Mountains and ski resorts. Take a trip to York Street, however, and you'll forever remember Colorado as home to the most beautiful flower gardens you've ever seen! That's all thanks to the beautiful Denver Botanic Gardens. The Gardens aim to conserve natural flora from around the globe, while also providing entertainment opportunities for visitors to enjoy. Not only do the Gardens host their own fun events, like yoga classes and summer concerts - they even allow you to use their facilities for your own celebrations! The Denver Botanical Gardens have a variety of amazing rental options, including both indoor and outdoor locations. Here are just a few of the great choices at the York Street and Chatfield locations:

Host a dinner-dance at the Green Farm Barn, pictured left above, which comfortably seats 140 guests. If you have a larger group, or just want to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery, take things outside! The private outdoor patio and grass area adjacent to the barn can accommodate over 500 guests. Now that's a party.

If you're looking to have something on a slightly smaller scale, look no further than the charming Deer Creek Schoolhouse. The one-room schoolhouse dates back to 1875, making it a quaint location for a ceremony or bridal shower.
