Moss Denver

If you’re looking for an urban and trendy wedding venue, Moss is a popular choice! I’ve photographed a number of weddings here and love it as a contemporary backdrop. It’s situated in the trendy RiNo Art District of Denver. This industrial-chic venue features exposed brick walls and large windows. The building itself was renovated from a historic 1900s building. However, it seamlessly maintains its industrial character.

In the heart of RiNo Art District is a modern, boutique hotel otherwise known as Ramble. It houses multiple intimate event spaces ideal for smaller weddings – think classy, chic rooftop vibes. Death & Co, a craft cocktail bar, sits in the lobby of the hotel. Ramble’s location makes it ideal for out-of-town guests, as its surrounding neighborhood is filled with unique breweries and restaurants.

Blanc

In the center of Denver’s ballpark neighborhood is Blanc, an eclectic and chic venue. The outdoor space allows for a good mix of photos with greenery and trees set with a garden patio and industrial background. I’m a huge fan of the garden patio! The location is a stone’s throw away from vibrant nightlife and delicious restaurants.
