Butterfly Pavilion is a gorgeous and versatile event venue just a fifteen minute drive from downtown Denver, but feels like a world away. From a lush rainforest with 1,600 free flying exotic butterflies and an amphitheater next to a trickling creek, to a spacious ballroom and open patio overlooking a soft palette of colorful annuals, there are many beautiful and unique locations for your ceremony, reception, or civil union.

Our residential warming kitchen is great for catererers and serving meals. Butterfly Pavilion accommodates engagement pictures, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and day after brunches... and is a great place to entertain out of town guests!

Enjoy the beauty and comfort of a truly multipurpose venue, while knowing your event is making a positive impact in our community and beyond. Butterfly Pavilion is a nonprofit organization that rents our space as a means to financially support our mission of education and conservation. Our profits go directly back into our organization to support our educational programming for over 50,000 school children and partnerships with sustainable butterfly farms worldwide. Hosting your event at Butterfly Pavilion helps to create a sustainable future in both our local and global communities. Read less

My husband and I were married on August 20th, 2013 at The Butterfly Pavilion. We chose the date because we wanted to be married under a full moon and stars, which meant we would be married at night. This presented several challenges in our wedding planning. Most wedding venues were not willing to marry us any later than 7:30pm, and were way too expensive for our budget.

I found the Butterfly Pavilion and they were very willing to work with us. They had no problem with us having a night ceremony. They had a couple beautiful areas to hold the ceremony, though we ultimately chose to have ours on their back lawn in front of the large gazebo. The venue comes with a sound system that includes speakers on the outside of the building, so we were able to play out ceremony music without having to rent extra equipment. A microphone was also provided. In addition to this, they provided the tables and chairs for both our ceremony and reception, and the venue includes an on-site kitchen for outside caterers to prepare their food in. There are other services we did not take advantage of such as a butterfly release for the ceremony, but our guests were allowed to tour the conservatory for no extra charge.

The only area where some brides may find the Butterfly Pavilion to be a challenge is that they are not particularly involved with set-up. Our caterers were responsible for setting up tables and decorating outside, but apart from that set-up is the responsibility of the wedding party. Having said that, the horticulture team at the Butterfly Pavilion did set up LED lights in the trees and on the gazebo for us for an additional charge, which worked out great for all involved.

Our wedding went seamless and was everything I could ask for. Jennifer was professional throughout and great at keeping in touch with me, providing feedback and advice, and was a great friend to have through the process. I would highly recommend the Butterfly Pavilion to anyone.

"A HIDDEN TREASURE THAT'S NOT JUST FOR KIDS! The Butterfly Pavilion is the best of both worlds - beautiful traditional ballroom and outdoor area with gazebos, gardens, and a small creek with a waterfall. We had older adults that needed assistance, friends with physical challenges (such as wheelchairs and walkers) and 35 children under 14 at our wedding. This venue accommodated everyone. Parking is not a problem and it is walking distance from multiple hotels and the Westminster Promenade. Our out-of-town guests were so happy to have everything they desired close by. The best part of the Butterfly Pavilion is that the money spent on the venue goes towards conservation, research and children's programs. They also helped us facilitate as close to a zero waste event as we could with 135 guests. Jennifer, our event coordinator, started there in the middle of our planning, and her creative suggestions helped make our event flow the way we wanted. She also picked out gifts for the children in our wedding from their gift shop based on gender and age which enlivened the reception and became adornment for my husband's suit. :) The only reason they received 4/5 stars for service is that we had to sweep outside before our guests arrived after asking staff to sweep rocks out of the way the day before. Other than that everything was perfect. Plus where else can you have have a tarantula for the guests to pet at your wedding?"

If you are looking for a great place to have a magical wedding for you and your children this is a great place. Plus, the price is affordable for the extra magic of butterflies. We had our ceremony in the Tropical Butterfly room. Like a beach wedding the room is very warm and moist so have guest wear tropical clothing. Also, be preparered for the bottom of your dress to get a little damp and dirty, but who cares the butterflies make up for it. They fly around and land on you. The kids loved it and you can spend lots of time in the room. The plants are beautiful with small streams and flowers. It is just a great evening for all. Plus, you can have different exhibits open for the kids and family to play and learn. Magic for all ages. I felt like a princess for sure and butterflies landed and gave kissed to all. We had two people in wheelchairs and an Autistic child and it was wonderful for them all, easy for them all to move around and enjoy which is also priceless.
It is a very different wedding, but I feel it is a great deal for the money. By far a beautiful, fun, unique time can be had on a budget.

you would like a venue that provides you with a beautiful space, tables, chairs, & nearly free range to decorate/do anything you want (so long as you clean it up) then the Butterfly Pavilion is perfect for you. I admit it might have been nice to have a venue where more of the items were included it was nice to be free to choose every aspect of our wedding.

this place is horrible. first lady was nice and amazing. she helped me get a general idea about how i want the nights plan to lay out. but something happened to her. so they assigned Alex to the job he was rude and never called me back and i could tell i was not going to get any help from their end. i then needed to set up a time to take my mother and grandmother in so they could see what it looked like and help me plan the set up. i called over and over agin and could not figure out who was now in charge of the weddings. i left messages in every department saying can you please have whoever is in charge of the wedding department call me back. i final called the front desk (that sells tickets to get into the place) and they connected me to her (they are very nice and would not let me go till i was where i needed to be). Ashley got on the phone and seemed nice and said she was sorry she then set up the time for me to come in and said she was writing it down. well she forgot about it and the only reason she came in was because the ladies at the front desk could see how pissed i was (no i did not make a foul of myself but i should have). when she came in she had every excuse in the book as well as blaming me for not reminding her. she then said because of everything you went through ill give you the night before the wedding to set up. well this was nothing but a lie she instead planned her baby shower there preventing us from being able to set up. she did nothing but mess up our dates and when we talked to her boss we got nothing but i snooty email back saying she was doing her job. worst place ever. save yourself the headache and go somewhere else
