As a part of the Colorado wedding community for more than two decades, The Bridal Collection has helped brides find their dream wedding dresses for just about every venue across the Rocky Mountain region. We thought it was time to share our knowledge to help brides-to-be find their perfect venue.  So, over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing our favorite Colorado venues.

 First up are our picks for historic wedding venues in Colorado.

Boettcher Mansion

900 Colorow Road
Golden, CO  80401

Arts and Crafts architecture fans will love this stone-and-timber mansion nestled in the Lookout Mountain Nature Preserve. The mansion, built in 1917, originally served as Charles Boettcher’s hunting lodge but was later donated to Jefferson County for public use.  

The space has many unique architectural elements including an Inglenook fireplace and cathedral-beam ceilings in the original living room.  The main reception space can accommodate up to 200 guests and includes a raised terrace adorned with bistro lights. The venue is surrounded by towering pine trees and gorgeous mountain views making it ideal for wedding photos.

The Bridal Collection’s in-house wedding dress collection, Kathryn Elizabeth, is ideal for this wedding venue thanks to its timeless and romantic designs.boettcher mansion wedding in ColoradoPhoto: Elevate Photography

Mile High Station

2027 West Lower Colfax Avenue
Denver, CO  80204

Before becoming a hip events venue, Mile High Station was the home to Midwest Steel & Ironworks. The original building was constructed in 1897 when Denver became a hub for the industry. Hundreds of ironworkers and craftsmen built and shipped large-scale ship sections for use by the U.S. Navy in World War II.  

We love the juxtaposition of the new and old in this large, customizable space.The building retains much of the original architectural features including the old-brick exterior walls, I-Beam steel structure and original equipment, yet has been updated with a beautiful brick bar, raised mezzanine, patio and amazing custom chandeliers.  

Some of our favorite photos of Bridal Collection brides were taken beneath these funky lighting fixtures. Our brides have worn a variety of styles and designers in this fun space; everything from sleek and sexy to ball gowns with bling.

Grant-Humphreys Mansion

770 Pennsylvania Street
Denver, CO  80203

This stately, Neoclassical-style mansion was built in 1902 for James Benton Grant, the third governor of Colorado. It was sold in 1917 to A.E. Humphreys, who worked in the oil industry. The family remained in the home until 1976 when it was bequeathed to the Colorado Historical Society.

Located in the quaint Quality Hill neighborhood of Denver, the Grant-Humphreys Mansion includes a classic ballroom, grand staircase, floral garden and large patio. The wedding venue is decorated with antique furnishings and rich fabrics perfect for couples wanting a timeless, romantic and elegant feel.

The Bridal Collection has proudly helped a variety brides find THE perfect wedding gowns for their Grant-Humphreys weddings. We even outfitted our owner’s cousin, Erin, for her nuptials at Grant-Humphreys Mansion!
