Wouldn’t you love to celebrate the most special day of your life amidst stunning views and fragrant blooms? From the relaxed yet gorgeous and romantic atmosphere to the effortlessly picture-perfect backdrops, it’s not surprising that many couples are opting for garden venues. As a wedding photographer, I truly feel privileged to capture some of the most fantastic garden weddings at magnificent locations. One of such places, that will definitely complement your story perfectly, is the Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding venue.
If you are looking to plan a wedding in the city that promises you romance and charm beautifully engulfed in fragrant blossoms of flowers, and unparalleled beauty, then just imagine a Denver Botanic Gardens wedding! The Botanic Gardens is currently home to 2 iconic wedding venues. Their downtown location is is located at the primary gardens location of 1007 York Street in Denver, CO. They also have a beautiful location in Littleton, Colorado (just outside of Denver) called Chatfield Farms. Both locations provide an urban oasis with beautifully crafted gardens and multiple ceremony and reception spaces.
In addition, what makes a Denver Botanic Gardens wedding so ideal is its proximity to the city, while still providing the beauty and respite of a lush garden or peaceful farm. With boundless options to help make your wedding visions come to life, all while being supplementing your vision with romantic charm and beauty, this venue is bound to help make all your fairytale wedding dreams come true.
Surrounded by lush gardens, exquisite flowers, and vines, this venue could hardly get more romantic. The scenery forms the perfect backdrop while giving you that feeling of celebrating an ideal destination wedding. Furthermore, the York St. venue has many spaces and is loved for its ability to complement any style affair.
