Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms
Rustic mountain charm minutes from the city

Incredible views of the foothills and surrounding gardens can be seen from all locations.

Chatfield Farms is a beautiful venue and met all of our expectations! Brittany was great to work with and provided quick responses. When we were forced to change our wedding plans, Brittany offered us a variety of options that helped to relieve a lot of the stress! We decided to use the Open Air Chapel for a small family ceremony. It worked out perfectly and we are so happy that we were able to incorporate Chatfield Farms into our special day. I would definitely recommend this venue for either a full ceremony and reception, or just a beautiful and intimate ceremony site for an elopement.
We searched all over the front range, the foothills and when we visited Chatfield, we knew it was the venue for our wedding. We've been working with Brittany and her experience in the industry has been extremely valuable. They have an approved vendor list, and if you choose someone outside of that list you will need to pay a fee. Honestly, this really helped the decision making process and we were confident we would receive top notch service. The two different sites are great and require minimal decoration. They have been a pleasure to communicate and work with.
This was an absolutely beautiful place to get married! Elanor was fantastic to work with and really understood our easy going, nontraditional style. I would happily recommend Chatfield Farms to anyone looking for an affordable and beautiful place to get married!
