Denver has always been a vacay destination, but now, couples are flocking to the “Mile High City” to tie the knot. And with venues like these, it’s easy to see why. Home to so many unique historic industrial buildings, Denver has become a playground for interior designers and event planners alike. From a glamourous old train station to an old warehouse where they once fashioned entire ships out of steel, these repurposed and rehabbed slices of history make for some truly unique wedding venues we’ve ever seen. Here are 10 of our favorite Denver venues–and you won’t believe how affordable they all are!

1. union station

Known as “The Crown Jewel of Denver”, Union Station is one of the most unique wedding venues we’ve ever seen. Union Station first opened in 1881 and though it has been revitalized over the years, it still maintains all of the charm and intrigue of its historic architecture. This landmark is now a vibrant destination for gathering, dining, imbibing, shopping, traveling, and yes, you can even stay there too at their luxe on-site lodging–The Crawford Hotel. We always say these are the qualities that couples should look for in a wedding venue: good bones, ease of access for you and your guests, and good food and drink…and this venue in the heart of Denver has it all! Oh, and it’s open 24/7, 365 so the party never has to end.

2. the cooper lounge

This stunning space boasts sky-high ceilings, and a fusion of modern metallics and subtle nods to the interior’s inspiration, elegant locomotives like The Orient Express and California Zephyr trains.
