We knew from the moment we saw their Barn on the internet that we had found the perfect place for our wedding. We didn't even need a tour before we wanted to sign a contract! :)
Michele, our event coordinator, was very responsive and quick to answer all my questions. The day of our wedding we had some issues with rain and were close to moving the event indoors. The staff was monitoring the weather all day and hurried to the bridal suite to tell me if we went NOW we would beat the next storm that was bound to head through. Well, the timing was PERFECT. I walked down the aisle with the sun shining and the rain started as the ceremony ended...just in time for our guests to get inside the barn for shelter. I joked the staff should have gone into meterology because the timing was just so perfect.
All our of guests raved about the venue and how beautiful the location was. It feels so secluded even though you are in the middle of Littleton! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to get married.

The venue is beautiful and great place for outdoor Colorado ceremony. The staff is not always quick with their responses to emails/phone calls but they are very helpful when they do respond and provide a great flexibility and venue to help make your dream wedding happen!

At first, I was intimidated by all of Chatfield's rules and regulations. But they are actually more flexible and accommodating than I thought. And there aren't many hidden fees unlike other venues. I felt that the value of the venue for what I got was fantastic. I got married on a Sunday so there were no other weddings that day and it turned out beautiful. They are very organized and my event went smoothly without complications! Wouldn't have gotten married anywhere else!

The day of our event was absolutely spectacular. The venue itself is beautiful. Michelle our facility coordinator was amazing and she dealt with all of my 'crazy.' There were initially some communication issues with our original facility coordinator, but once we got Michelle everything fell into place. Purchase more time if you have an evening event, we wish we had because our event felt far too short.

The reason why I don't give them a five is because of the initial communication issues we had. Our first facility coordinator never responded to any of my emails, however, she is now no longer there and Michelle was fantastic. Flexibility was a bit of an issue, we were unable to book our rehearsal time until it was 30 days before our event. This wouldn't have been an issue, except that our entire wedding party was coming in from out of town and travel arrangements needed to be made, but they were inflexible and wouldn't even give us an estimated time. During the event itself, some of the staff were rude to my sister.

All and all the venue itself was beautiful and the staff worked hard to rectify certain situations.

The Green Barn Farm at Chatfield was the absolute perfect wedding venue for our colorado/country themed wedding. It was the only venue we looked at and booked it that day. You do need to be ready to make a decision as it books up pretty fast. We got married in the dead of summer and during the monsoon season. It rained during the day, was gorgeous for the ceremony and poured just as we were hitting the dance floor. Not that it made one bit of difference. The staff, along with Rocky Mountain Catering adjusted very quickly and moved everything inside. We had around 200 guests so we were packed into the venue pretty deep but it all worked out. We have friends and family who continue to say it was one of the coolest wedding venues they have been to ever. The only issue we had upfront was communication. They did have one person leave who was our main contact and they seem to have resolved that. I would definitely recommend this venue.

Chatfield was beautiful for my rustic wedding. The Green Barn (that is really red!) is fabulous. It was the perfect size for 150 guests and the staff was very professional. The only thing that stressed us was we did a Friday evening wedding and we couldn't get there until 4pm but it all worked out and was the best day of my life!

Let me begin by saying that our experience was excellent until our wedding day. Our wedding was scheduled for the morning of 9/29/2012, which unknowingly to us was the same exact time the Color Me Rad 5k was to take place right next to our wedding. Lucky for the runners, they received a courtesy email warning them of the traffic getting into the facility. We did not receive a single call and ran into miles of traffic in all directions as there is only one way out and one way in. With 10s of thousands of runners (we saw a bib number of 21,756 so there were at least that many there!) and all of our wedding party, we did not reach our part of the gardens until 1hour and 15 minutes after our start time. We got there 15 mintues before our wedding was supposed to take place! The caterer is friends with Mary and Chris, our gardens coordinators, and they were not even aware- what usually took them 15 minutes took them an hour and a half. Needless to say, we had a horrible experience. Our biggest issue was that NO ONE let us know. NO ONE approached us at all the day of our wedding. NO ONE apologized to us or offered a resolution. We had guests turned away from our wedding. We can never get that back. Over a month later, they want to give us back the 1-2 hours we missed at the beginning. Wow. Really?

The location is beautiful, and Mary was great to work with. Book early! We booked in May 2011, and there were only 2 Saturdays left for summer 2012.

Most AMAZING place ever! Chris and Mary were the nicest ladies to work with. The venue is just absolutely beautiful. My family and friends from out of town were ready to get a moving a van and move to Colorado after seeing this place. The venue came with an inside and outside option, since you never know what the weather out here is going to be like, so I had no worries the day of my wedding. I would book every party I have here!

Chatfield Botanic Gardens was the perfect place for us to have our wedding. We are fun loving, outdoorsy people who wanted a unique, outdoor, rustic wedding. The venue is set up in a way to make it a memorable experience; we had our ceremony at an outdoor gazebo and then the reception in the cute old barn that was a short walk away. They provided cute wooden signs and had some interesting rentals available (like a charming vintage truck). This venue is better for smaller groups of people, we had around 50 and it was so perfect and cozy for that amount. The reception at the barn had the dancing outside on the patio and that was really fun. They are upfront and clear with their expectations and procedures so they are reliable with what they say, they are also a working farm/garden so they are a bit more strict with their rules. But because it is a botanical garden it had a lot of interesting places to take pictures and for people to explore while we are getting our bride and groom pictures.

We loved our venue. They did a wonderful job of making sure that everything went how it was supposed to go. The staff was great. It's a beautiful place to have your wedding/reception at. The only thing that bothered me was, there was no mention that they have quite a bit of misquitos. So we did not prepare for it. Which was terrible.

Chatfield was amazing! It was so beautiful. They do an amazing job keeping the grounds up so that it looks like something right out of a storybook. The staff there is also super nice and accommodating. Everyone at our wedding mentioned several times what a beautiful location it was. We loved it!

Overall, they did a very good job. Friendly staff, etc. The only thing is, I would definitely make plans for mosquito control. They had sprayed earlier in the day, but there was a heavy rainstorm before the wedding, then the sun came out and so did the bugs. We had bottles of mosquito repellant for the guests as well, which I highly recommend.

We felt very lucky to reserve Chatfield for our August 2010 wedding. The space was absolutely beautiful-perfect if you are looking for an outdoor ceremony with indoor/outdoor options for a reception. We got a lot of compliments from guests who had never visited Colorado before and enjoyed the wide open green spaces. Plus, it was a great value for the money. I think their wedding business is really ramping up quickly as brides find about the good value, so we had some trouble with responsiveness and communication. But overall, I would highly recommend them based on location, flexibility, and price alone.

Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield responded with the following comments:

The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield is an incredible place to have a wedding and the spot has taken off fast. This was our third season and we were 90% sold out. We have taken off much faster than aniticipated and have incurred growing pains. We will be increasing our staff and hope to receive all 5's in customer service in 2011!!

The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield was the perfect setting for our wedding! It was casual, but beautiful. The staff was flexible and easy to work with. And the gorgeous flowers surrounding the barn provided the perfect backdrop for photos.

The site was beautiful, it looked breath taking in the pictures. In my many hours of research it was one of the most beautiful sites with the best price. The facility coordinator was very friendly and flexible, but she was a bit difficult to get a hold of and didn't always reply.

This venue was absolutly BEAUTIFUL! It was my favorite part of the wedding (besides the actual getting married part of course!). Chris was a breeze to work with from the begining through the entire planning process. She was honest and up-front and flexable and laid back. All of the things that a stressed out bride needs! I would recommend this venue to anyone!
