Why not make it a Denver Wedding


Denver rocks for weddings. I’m saying that because I grew up there and I married my lovely bride Jane in the Romantic Gardens at the Denver Botanic Gardens. But, I’m also saying that because I know a growing list of people are making it their destination. Denver might be their home city and it’s a good way to keep it local for friends and family. Or maybe they’re attracted by the craft brewing, fine dining and chic hotel boom that Denver finds itself in the middle of. Either way, the Mile High City is full of places to stage your perfect Denver Wedding.

Ascouple kisses near Union Station train station in Denveride from planning my own wedding in Denver, I have been in, attended and shot several weddings in the Queen City of the Plains. Whether you choose a small civil wedding at the Denver City and County Building, a church wedding at The Sanctuary or an urban wedding at the Denver Art Museum, Denver offers engaged couples many opportunities to tie the knot.


Photographically speaking, Denver is a great place to shoot. It offers beautiful urban landscapes, lovely flower-filled city gardens and high-rise balconies that offer sweeping views of the Front Range. Practically anywhere we point our lens we find a great location for engagement photos or a spectacular background for formal portraits. We love shooting in Denver. It’s not far from our home base in Longmont but shooting weddings in Denver lets us experince the best the town has to offer and reminds us how lucky we are to live near such a great city.
