If you’re a regular here, then you know how much we’re crushing on Denver right now! It’s already becoming a popular destination for weddings, but we think it’s perfect for elopements and micro-weddings too! The best part about having a smaller wedding is that it opens you up to so many new destinations and venues–and Denver has some of the coolest! Here are our top picks…

Small weddings are proof that less is more. Not only will it save you $$$ and give you more one-on-one time with your favorite people, but a smaller guest list means that you have a lot more venues to choose from and some of them are pretty unique!

11th avenue hostel


This isn’t your typical Hostel. With rich wood floors and accents and a cool, colorful, urban aesthetic, the 11th Avenue Hostel would make such a cool micro-wedding destination. They have both indoor and outdoor options for an intimate ceremony and reception. They even have in-house planners to ensure a stress-free celebration. They also have preferred catering and bar services if you need some recommendations. And the best part? You and your guests can stay on-site and the rooms are super cute and incredibly affordable!



Located in the heart of Denver’s River North Art District (RiNo), EDENS is one of the most unique and versatile event spaces that Denver has to offer. With two distinct venues, The Loft and The Alley, EDEN is the ultimate blank canvas. The Loft is a 1,800-square-foot picturesque rooftop with skyline views and flexible indoor-outdoor space. The Alley is a street-level open-air space that will immerse you and your guests in the RiNo art scene.

flora house


Looking for somewhere with chic vintage vibes, look no further than Flora House. This “modern Victorian” has been lovingly refurbished and imbued with all of the comforts of modern technology with all of the charm of its original Victorian-era details. For a micro-wedding, you can do a full-house takeover and you and up to 17 of your guests can stay on-site!

little eden plantscaping


One of the more unique venues, Little Eden Plantscaping is a working farm and florist. They allow couples to use the farm grounds, guest house, and renovated barn for intimate celebrations. For the nature-loving couple, it doesn’t get any better than this!

michael waren contemporary


We can’t get enough of this modern gallery venue. Located in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe, Michael Warren Contemporary is the anchor gallery. The 2,800-square-foot gallery has large windows, high ceilings, bamboo floors, and professional track lighting–can’t you just picture the photos?! Not only is it a beautiful space, but you and your guests can take in the art while you sip craft cocktails and enjoy an intimate dinner.

tears McFarlane house


Don’t be deceived by the grandeur, this 20th-century mansion is surprisingly affordable and perfect for micro-weddings! Prominently located on the North edge of Cheeseman Park in Capitol Hill, The Tears McFarlane House offers an elegant setting for both indoor and outdoor celebrations. They even have an on-site Events team to make sure your big day runs smoothly.


The key to an effortlessly spectacular elopement is picking a destination with good bones, and Denver has that in spades! It’s one of the most naturally stunning destinations we’ve ever seen, so why not take advantage of these spectacular outdoor spaces? Another great reason to elope in Denver…you don’t need an officiant to get married, you don’t even need a witness–just the two of you and Mother Nature (and hopefully a great photographer because we need to see those photos!).

One of the most epic natural wonders we have in the States is in Denver–Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. These towering red rock structures make the most incredible backdrop for weddings, the photos speak for themselves.

One of the top five botanic gardens in the nation, Denver Botanic Gardens is an oasis in the heart of the city. Teeming with wildflowers and lush landscapes, this is a picture-perfect beautifully manicured “natural” spot to tie the knot.
