We held our wedding at Chautauqua Dining Hall in Boulder at the beginning of June. We started our day in the morning with brunch, held the ceremony on the green, and then moved back inside to dance to a small live band. It was a completely wonderful day.Sent on 07/04/2018
Any event requires planning. Nia Williams, the Event Coordinator, worked with us throughout the process. She is competent, fun, and reassuring. She helped us develop our menu, suggesting items that fit our theme and stayed in our budget. She helped us decide on seating for dining, took care of renting and organizing the seating for the outdoor ceremony, and made sure our band had space and time to set up. At the last minute (the day of), she even arranged to drive one elderly guest the short distance to the ceremony and back. Nia also always responded supportively at moments of panic (when we thought we had missed a detail or needed to add something very quickly).
The dining hall crew was efficient and unobtrusive, they prepared a wonderful buffet, and the bartender served delicious drinks so quickly that we had no line. Along with waffles and a southwest egg scramble, we were able to provide really good vegan and gluten-free options for those that wanted them. The crew reset the dining room for dancing while we held the ceremony outside, shifting centerpieces and setting up the dessert and cake table.
The Dining Hall is beautiful inside and out. This combined with the excellence of Nia, the staff, and the food gave us a wedding we will always remember with joy. We were so happy and our guests had a blast.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Chautauqua Dining Hall. Even before we had committed to the venue, their wedding coordinator was extremely helpful, informative, and prompt in her responses. After officially deciding to go forward with Chautauqua, the level of service didn't drop in the slightest; their event coordinator and staff seemed genuinely interested in making sure that our wedding day was everything we had ever dreamed of. As our wedding drew closer, we had some minor panics with event planning mistakes that we had made, but with a quick call over to the Chautauqua event staff, we were able to painlessly sort everything out. We really appreciated their responsiveness and flexibility! On the big day, everything went so smoothly and we were extremely impressed by the efforts of not only the event coordinator, but the rest of the dining hall staff. We would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone interested in a small-to-medium sized wedding in the Boulder, CO area.Sent on 11/16/2016

Can't say enough good things about our wedding reception at the Dining Hall. We were looking for a space that was beautiful on it's own without adding decorating work for us and this was absolutely it. From the day we started working with Lauren to the day of our wedding, everything was great. She was responsive, fun and amazing to work with. Not to mention - the food was SO good! We had multiple guest comment on how great the food was and no doubt our local friends will make it back there for dinner in the future. Last but not least, the staff - so friendly and amazing. They would check in with me to make sure I got my food they put away for me in the back and that I had enough to eat. Highly recommend.Sent on 10/16/2016
