History
Fisher and Fisher, at the request of Charles Boettcher, built this summer home in 1917. In the 1970s, this home was graciously donated to the county, and five years later began hosting couples on their wedding day. Following that, in the years 2005-2007, the mansion was renovated with modern amenities. However, its historic authenticity was preserved and it now proudly stands as a premier historic venue offering couples a unique setting in which to exchange their vows.

    Magical venue even with rain

    I'm the rare Colorado bride who got rain on her summer wedding day and it lasted long enough (hours) to change the venue from outdoor to indoor. The planner put a bunch of floating cylinder candles on the fireplace and the arch flowers were placed on the wooden benches. This actually increased the intimacy and the ceremony (along with our incredible officiant) exceeded even better than the outdoor option as the warmth and love was intense from the indoor setting. Everyone said it was the best ceremony they had ever seen. We also had an instrumental band in the piano room.

    Boettcher is the perfect setting and I would recommend the venue with the following advice:
    -We paid $9500 with taxes for a full day rental so it adds up quick from the $5800 venue fee. The venue is worth it, IMO, but you should be aware of where the price ends up after all the add ons. This is partly because you must rent the lights for $1000 and also the adjacent spaces (gazebo, etc) to prevent people from coming on the grounds
    -We had a disagreement with the venue on start time and rehearsal as they tightly book other events and even tours the day of your full day rental. This isn't common for that amount of money. We had a 1:00 setup time and it was tough getting them to do a 12:00 setup time but we were happy they finally agreed to this. Notably other full day rentals give you the full day starting at 8 am if needed
    -I would recommend (2) hair and (2) makeup persons to pull off a full day as they limit yourself setup time to 3 hours. It would be tough to have this done in a salon and then go to the venue as it's located at least 45 mins from Denver or Boulder, although going to a salon is possible. If you do the hair and makeup on site, you'll need two of each if your bridal party is bigger than 3 people bc the bride takes an hour
    -For some reason, the cake was served in the entry area rather than the reception hall. That meant we ended up with nobody in our reception area despite paying for a live band and technically ended up without a reception as people mingled in a small space instead. This was an oversight by the caterer as they did not break down the dinner tables but having venue staff that can help maximize the use of the venue would have been a nice backup for this oversight as they know the space best. I imagine every wedding at Boettcher has a reception in the reception hall so this should have appeared out of place for venue staff as a backup as we used a recommended caterer. This happened so fast we didn't realize everyone was eating cake in the entry area until it was already done. They also didn't get to see us cut our cake. We were confused as to why nobody was in the reception area and the band was playing to an empty room.

    Overall, we do recommend Boettcher and if I could do it all again, it's the one and only place for me. We had 70 people fly in and the proximity, views, romantic setting, indoor/outdoor spaces are unparalleled. Megan was also very helpful to us and very professional.

    Mansion for the win!

    The Boettcher Mansion was a complete and total wedding saver! We had everything planned and ready to go on our wedding, despite all of the challenges of Covid, until two months prior to our date the venue cancelled on us! We reached out to Boettcher as we had really liked them when we were first checking out venues, but our plans were very different and the only thing they didn’t have that we wanted was lodging for our guests. With the restrictions and changes that were being put in place, our plans changed and we were scrambling to figure it all out. When we reached out to Boettcher, we got a quick response from Shea and found out that our date was shockingly still available! The process was smooth and the staff was very helpful and accommodating as we made all of the pivots and changes to things that we had planned. By the time our date rolled around, it felt like this was the plan all along. Kimberly was our day of contact and she did an AMAZING job with helping the day go off without issue. Our pictures were beautiful, our guests were happy, and we can’t even imagine our special day taking place anywhere else. It all felt so meant to be that we couldn’t have been happier with it all. Thank you to the incredible work of the staff at Boettcher Mansion for all that you did to help our dreams come true.

    Boettcher Mansion's reply:

    Jamie,

    Thank you for your kind words, we are so happy we were able to host your celebration here! We enjoyed working with you both and wish you a lifetime of happiness!

    Sincerely,
    The Boettcher Mansion Team
