This venue is incredible! I am SO excited to have my wedding reception here. There are 24 acres of gorgeous space and guests get access to the Botanic Gardens the entire day of your event. You get to bring in outside alcohol so it is much cheaper than other venues. The staff is wonderful and so, so friendly.Sent on 09/24/2019

Beautiful and impressive venue
Our experience with this venue was nothing but positive. We worked mainly with Danae, she and everyone else we met on the staff were always easy to get in touch with and helpful. Danae actually recommended our (wonderful) wedding planner as well, and they worked closely through the whole process. Between the two of them they easily handled every detail of the ceremony, reception, catering, and every little thing in between that I didn’t even realize we would have to consider.Sent on 04/26/2020
We came from out of state, and only had a couple of opportunities to actually see/visit the Gardens before the wedding, but Danae was always flexible and we were able to do a lot over email and video calls which was great.
Our actual wedding day went very smoothly, and I was impressed with how private it felt given we were at a public garden. The areas where we had the ceremony and reception were completely ours, which made the event even more enjoyable.
There are some requirements to be mindful of with regards to sound in the outdoor areas, given that it is a public location in the middle of a city, but Danae was very helpful with explaining the requirements and our options, so we didn’t run into any issues there.
Overall a stunning venue with a very skilled and friendly staff who gave us a great experience, can’t recommend them highly enough!

An Amazing Venue - Denver Botanic Gardens
I got married at the Denver Botanic Gardens and had an amazing experience. Thomas was great to work with. He was professional, responsive, flexible and a good listener. The staff at the day of the wedding was professional and efficient and it all felt like a well oiled machine. I would highly recommend having a wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Thank you to Thomas and the staff for making my day so memorable!Sent on 07/15/2019
