The Top 5 Wedding Venues Northern Colorado Offers

Colorado has inspired some pretty amazing stuff such as films and songs, but it’s also inspired many couples to have their weddings there too. So, if you and your partner are planning to get hitched there, I’ve come up with a list of the top 5 wedding venues Northern Colorado offers that will take your breath away.

The Top 5 Wedding Venues Northern Colorado Offers

Northern Colorado is the PERFECT place for a wedding, but a great wedding venue isn’t just about the location, it’s about great service too. Knowing that, all the wedding venues I put on this list tick off both boxes. 

Ready to see what they are? Good because I’m ready to show you.

#1 – The Manor House in Littleton

Part of what makes Colorado so great is its rich history! The Manor House, located in Littleton, is a big part of that. This historic wedding venue was built in 1914 and has housed some amazing people like Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft.

So, it makes sense then that the Manor House has a level of luxury fit for an American president, and it does. It’s located on a beautiful 2660 acres of land, making it one of the top wedding venues Northern Colorado has to offer.

Its main house, located at the property’s highest point, is a wonderful showcase of beautiful colonial architecture with high ceilings, plenty of windows, a luxurious ballroom, and a lovely garden with a view of Dry Creek Canyon.

But don’t be fooled by how big the place is. The Manor House also offers several more intimate locations for smaller weddings or elopements like in front of one of the property’s cozy fireplaces.

Additional Manor House Amenities

If that’s not enough, then no worries. The Manor House matches its luxuriousness with a big list of amenities as well. Take a look below:

  • Elegant chairs and tables
  • Exclusive use of an FAA-approved helipad
  • 360-degree views of downtown Denver, Foothills, and the surrounding mountains
  • Private breakout rooms
  • Premium audio throughout the mansion
  • Six-acre site for you and your guests to enjoy
  • Exclusive use of Kent’s Cottage, a private home for the wedding night

So, that’s the Manor House. Now, let’s take a look at the Black Canyon Inn.

#2 – Black Canyon Inn

When it comes to wedding venues northern Colorado can claim to be the best in the US, the Black Canyon Inn is another top contender. It’s stashed away in the middle of a mighty granite ridge and vast flatlands, so you and your wedding party will have plenty of places to explore while you’re not busy getting hitched.

But what makes the Black Canyon Inn really special is the locations it offers. There are three of them and they are the Pavilion, the Homestead, and the Boulders. They’re each a little different, which is great because it’ll feel like you’re in a whole new place!

First up, the Homestead is a more rustic wedding venue with a log cabin feel that served as the Stacey family home for three decades. It comes with an exquisite fireplace where you and your guests can warm up after a long day of wedding festivities.

The Boulders, on the other hand, is named well because it was built on top of a hill surrounded by the mighty MacGregor Mountains. It has an industrial farmhouse look, hardwood flooring, and stone corner posts. Wrapped in large glass window panes, it definitely has a more modern vibe than the Homestead.

The largest of the three though is the Pavilion, which offers a scenic ceremony with the Lumpy Ridge rock formation. Its look is a mix of the rustic Homestead and industrial Boulders. 

All three of these amazing spots definitely put the Black Canyon Inn on the map when it comes to the best wedding venues Northern Colorado has to offer.

Additional Black Canyon Inn Amenities

One of the best things about the Black Canyon Inn is that they also offer a nice variety of extras! See what they are below:

  • Bride and Groom’s suite
  • On-site condos for guest lodging
  • Full catering services and wait staff

What’s next after the Black Canyon Inn? It’s the Della Terra Mountain Chateau!

#3 – Della Terra Mountain Chateau

Not many people think of luxurious villas in France or Italy when they think of the Colorado Mountains, but that’s what makes the Della Terra Mountain Chateau so great! It takes these two ideas and merges them together, which is also why it’s quickly climbing the list of best wedding venues Northern Colorado has blessed couples with. Just check out how beautiful the place is at Becca and Andrew’s wedding!

This is a beautiful place, sitting on 14 acres of isolated land, and inspired by the famous homes of European nobles.

Hey, speaking of noble people, you’ll be treated as one at the Della Terra Mountain chateau. The staff there are AWESOME including the event staff and wedding planners.

Also, this place has some soaring ceilings, huge timber windows that provide a stunning view of the MacGregor Mountains, a gorgeous outdoor terrace with a beautiful raised brick stage, and a natural cedar vineyard trellis.

Additional Della Terra Mountain Chateau Amenities

The Della Terra Mountain Chateau also offers the following amenities: 

  • Event manager during the wedding
  • One complimentary honeymoon suite
  • Champagne and sparkling cider toast for all guests
  • Barware, china, flatware, and glassware

Next up is Woodlands!

#4 – Woodlands Colorado

This is such a cool story. What started as a passion project for couple Janelle and Stephen Statham, Woodlands (you may have to search for Woodlands Colorado) is now one of the most sought-after wedding venues Northern Colorado has to offer.

The Stathams actually built Woodlands from the ground up with weddings in mind! As a result, the modern industrial barn has several wedding-specific features such as bride and groom suites. The white-washed walls and black trims are also PERFECT for couples who want to add their own personal touch to the decor.

But what makes Woodlands truly special is the people running it. The Stathams are passionate wedding professionals and have been since they opened the doors to the establishment in 2019. The hard work of the Stathams and their staff have helped Woodlands climb up the list of the best wedding venues Northern Colorado has gifted to couples looking to get married.

They’re also quite lenient with the vendors and have a long list of approved ones they’re more than happy to share with couples. Give this place a shot if you’re looking for passion and a cool story to go along with your own.

Additional Woodlands Colorado Amenities

The passion of the Stathams shows up in everything including the amenities they offer at Woodlands. See below for what they are:

  • Bridal Suite
  • Chairs and tables
  • Lighting/sound
  • Third-party vendors

Now it’s time to talk about Mount Vernon Canyon Club.

#5 – Mount Vernon Canyon Club

For couples who don’t want to go too far from city comforts, Mount Vernon Canyon Club definitely deserves its place on the list of the best wedding venues Northern Colorado offers. It’s only a 20-minute drive from downtown Denver, but it feels like a whole new world with its rustic lodge feel and stunning mountain views.

The property has several wedding venues too! These include large deck areas perfect for a ceremony with a view and an indoor banquet for receptions and rehearsal dinners.
