The Space Gallery is located in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District and is the perfect urban venue for art lovers, couples who want lots of color in their wedding photos, or just the couple wanting something memorably different for their guests coming to visit the city. With 4,000 square feet of adaptable indoor space, the set-up options are limitless. The Space Gallery has seating capacity for up to 250 guests, so this is a great downtown option for a larger wedding. There’s even an outdoor sculpture garden, so your guests can sight-see while sipping during cocktail hour!
SKYLIGHT is also located in the Santa Fe Arts District with plenty of event space filled with exposed brick, vaulted ceilings, open beams, and concrete floors. SKYLIGHT hits the nail on the head when it comes to “urban” – with a garage-door styled backdoor that opens to the cocktail hour allowing an indoor/outdoor event flow, and room for food trucks to park. One of the coolest parts of this venue space is it’s 24 hour rental time, so your guests can enjoy the downtown feel all night long!
The Ramble Hotel is located in the RiNo district of Denver, so your out of town guests would have no shortage of charming spots to visit before heading in to your wedding. This boutique hotel houses multiple intimate event spaces ideal for smaller wedding events – like a classy, chic welcome party with rooftop drinks. Speaking of drinks, make sure your guests check out the incredible craft cocktail bar inside, Death & Co., and definitely take a couple portrait in front of that beautiful bar!
Clearly the Arts District of Denver is a great area to find a venue to host your downtown wedding, because Moss can be found on Santa Fe Drive, too. According to the Moss website, the founders are experienced in decorative woodworking, welding, and metalworking and created the venue with the intention of building something unique and magical. These photos prove that to be true, and our favorite part is the moss covered wall – breaking up the typical urban exposed brick and giving a gorgeous backdrop for your downtown Denver wedding.
Deemed an “urban oasis” in Denver, The Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street contain 24 acres of lush greenery & unique venue spaces for all sizes. If you love the urban feel, but also want to be surrounded by nature, you can get married inside in the iconic dome of the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory. This venue is close to all that downtown Denver has to offer, meaning your guests can experience the city in the same weekend they get to have a special experience surrounded by greenhouses & picturesque gardens.
We had to give our classic couples a true hotel wedding option for downtown Denver! The Source Hotel has a large ballroom, room blocks for your guests to stay onsite, and all of the convenience and charm of a beautiful hotel wedding. However, the hotel has a “distinctly urban industrial vibe” with operational garage door windows, a rooftop for cocktail hour with a view of the Denver skyline, and of course – a breathtaking Rocky Mountain Front Range backdrop to remind your guests that while Denver has the city feel, it’s still in our beloved Rocky Mountains!
Located in historic Capitol Hill, The Denver Art Museum is right next door to parks, other museums, and of course – the state capitol building. If you want your out of town guests to get a tour of Denver, hosting your wedding at this venue would make it easy for anyone to visit the nearby tourist destinations. And – according to their website – in addition to wonderful architectural spaces, your guests can enjoy art from a broad collection of over 70,000 objects and have access to the museum’s special exhibitions.
