Impress your guests with a setting of unparalleled beauty and wonder.

From the iconic dome of the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory to the painterly water lilies of Monet Pool, the Gardens is a true Denver landmark. Considered one of the top five botanic gardens in the nation, its extraordinary rental sites include tropical plants, exotic blooms, rare and native species, and water displays across a 24-acre campus.

Featuring 12 unique indoor and outdoor sites, the Gardens can accommodate everything from an intimate affair to a lavish event. Choose a garden that reflects your personal style, such as the timelessly beautiful Romantic Gardens or the more exotic South African Plaza, brimming with calla lilies, Delosperma and torch lilies.

After the ceremony, celebrate in Marnie’s Pavilion, a two-story space with floor to ceiling windows, fragrant orchid displays and tumbling waterfalls; or host a large affair of up to 250 people in Mitchell Hall, an elegant hall that includes a balcony, stage and colored illumination if you choose.

Choose from a list of award-winning caterers, including Catering by Design, Footers Catering, Occasions Catering, Rocky Mountain Catering and Serendipity Catering, to tailor a menu just for you. Innovative chefs and professional staff will ensure that your day is flawless and memorable.
