This venue is beautiful and great value, and I couldn't imagine having it anywhere else. However, there are a lot of regulations and extra fines, so it's important to keep in mind that you'll have to stick to a tight schedule. That said, I would recommend it to anyone! There's a gorgeous outside location for a ceremony, and a fun barn with a great outdoor patio for the reception. Our guests couldn't stop commenting on its charm, and I have to agree with them.

We LOVED everything about our wedding at Chatfield Botanic Gardens. Amanda and the staff were very responsive and helpful from our initial email communication through the walkthrough. We had our ceremony outdoors on a beautiful July evening, and our ceremony was at the Green Farm Barn (love!). We were able to customize a lot and make the décor suit our personalities, and we even hung our homemade ribbon photo booth from the trees outside. The size of the barn was perfect for our 115 guests, although if we'd had many more the restroom lines might have been a bit long. Thank you Chatfield for providing a beautiful backdrop for our wedding!!!

I own an event planning company here in Denver and we do at least ten weddings a year at the Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. We always look forward to our weddings here as working with the Chatfield staff is such a pleasure. Of course the venue spaces are beautiful but above that the Chatfield staff always goes above and beyond to assist us and our brides. They truly make the day so unforgettable for our clients. If you are looking for a venue we suggest you make sure to add Botanic Gardens at Chatfield to your list!

Gorgeous venue if you're willing to jump through hoops to get what you want! There are a LOT of things that should have been included in the price of the rental like trash removal and security. Not to mention that the golf cart that was supposed to drive me to the ceremony site from the bridal suite while the ground was covered in puddles and mud RAN OUT OF GAS as soon as i got in. You would think that they would be prepared for things like that! But you can't beat the beauty of the gardens and the charm of the barn!

This venue is beautiful, and overall, was worth my money. But the planning process with them was ridiculous - never have I felt so ignored! I am certain that dealing with stressed brides is difficult, but their event manager, Chris, has this job for a reason and needs to manage her clientele better.
After I paid my 50% deposit, communication with them stopped. Anytime I would call or email with a question, I wouldn't hear from anyone for weeks. It would take 5 or 6 phone calls, and multiple emails to hear anything back. And when I did hear something back, it would often be a rushed, annoyed remark. For as much as brides pay to have their weddings at this venue, and hardly anything is provided, they should really be a lot nicer.
Then, on the day of my wedding, the event manager wouldn't let my mother in law begin setting up decorations until I arrived to sign something. She set us back 40 minutes, and things therefore got rushed and skipped over. Never was I told that set up couldn't begin until I slapped a signature and a credit card number on a single sheet of paper. When I did get there, I was quick to sign it, but the event manager seemed annoyed, like I was wasting HER time.

I would still recommend this venue because it's gorgeous, but I would warn brides to be prepared for dealing with them!

What a gorgeous site for a casual wedding!!! We visited this venue in March as a potential for an August wedding. They had just completed a controlled burn and the barn was being resided. Not a great way to select the ideal location. However, we had seen pictures on their website from previous weddings that were splendid and were assured that everything would be just as lovely. The wedding gazebo was a picture perfect site with wild flowers all around the grassed area and festooned in planters. The Green Barn and patio with all the twinkling lights were an ideal setting for the cocktails, lawn games, dinner and dancing. The staff, with whom we worked both before and during the wedding, were professional, flexible and had a sense of humor. The golf cart service for our handicapped guests was a wonderful way to move people with dignity between the sites. If you choose to have pictures taken by the bridge and waterfall, be sure to bring insect spray – the mosquitoes were voracious.
We had about 110 guests in the Green Barn, for dinner which was just about right.

Pros: beautiful venue, a fair amount of freedom with decor and vendor selection. Chris on staff was helpful, nice and knowledgeable.
Cons: There is a fee for everything. You will need more time than what is allotted in your package and you will pay dearly for it. An admin fee snuck up on us last minute that was not clearly documented in the contract but was in very small print on a later page. So we were out $300 ish more right before the wedding that we weren't expecting. When I first did a walk through at the venue, I had a less than helpful employee guiding me around the facility. She did not have a customer service mindset at all, evident in some of the comments she made while we were touring the facility. The last straw for me was when she said they could not guarantee that I would get a rehearsal time the weekend of the wedding...I almost walked out on the deal because her attitude was so unnecessarily defiant. Instead of saying something to the tune of "we will do everything possible to make you happy" it was more like "it may or may not be possible and there is nothing we can do to guarantee it". I will say that once we started to deal with Chris, she was more client focused and we had no problem getting a rehearsal date in. My professionalism rating above is for Chris specifically and how my situation turned out, but does not represent the business as a whole.
Overall, beautiful venue. Just know going in that they are not there to serve you as a paying customer in any way, they are providing a pretty place for you for a few hours and that is about it.

A gorgeous venue that was generally great to work with. It was wonderful to support a non profit with our fees and being able to provide your own alcohol really helped save cost. The staff were somewhat flexible with us allowing us slightly earlier access to the grounds, which was very helpful in our unique situation. When an unexpected thing happened in the morning the staff arrived extra early and navigated it without bothering us and they also notified the caterer. Email responsiveness and organization were not always great and sometimes the staff seemed frustrated to answer the questions, but they also seemed very busy and understaffed so that's understandable.

The Botanic Gardens was absolutely beautiful for our wedding in June. Their location is gorgeous, and set up very well for both the ceremony and reception. The bridal suite was fantastic, but the groom's quarters were lacking a little bit. Amanda, our coordinator for the day of the wedding, was absolutely wonderful. She was so helpful, responsive, and flexible. Many of the original requirements and restrictions in the contract seemed very rigid, but when we had specific requests or questions, they were very flexible and worked very closely with us.

When you get there the day of your wedding, the timeline is very tight, so be very organized with your decorations and other things you need to set up. This way it goes very smoothly, and your wedding will go off without a hitch, just like ours did!
