As an expert in Denver wedding photography, one of my top tips is to find a stylist with a portfolio that matches what you’re looking for, since you’ll feel so much more confident in your photos if you’re loving your look!

Denver Wedding Officiants 

Before you can say I do, you need to find the right wedding officiant in Denver! This is actually key, as your officiant really sets the tone and vibe for your day, so you 100% need to find someone you can groove with.

Jane Bronk Gorman: As a Denver wedding photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jane many times. She’s all about your love story — while her ceremony is more on the traditional side, she’s kind, sweet, and so lovely to be around. 

Bakeries And Wedding Cakes In Denver

It’s all about the cake, baby! I’ve sampled so many wedding cakes (it’s a tough gig being a photographer, I know!). Here are some delicious local bakers to check out.

Colorado Cherry Company: Is your love as sweet as cherry pie? If so, this bakery seriously has the best-tasting pies around, a fun alternative to the traditional tiered wedding cake. They have locations in Denver, Lyons, and Loveland. 

Carol Mele-Norton: Carol, from Lucky Mary’s Baking and Sweets Company makes cakes and cupcakes that are just to die for they are so moist and delicious. They’ll do custom orders in just about any flavor — and I love them all! 

Le Sensual Bakery: The team at Le Sensual always smash it, especially when it comes to fun themed cakes. I’ve ordered from them a few times, including a pirate ship cake for my bestie’s wedding! You can’t go wrong with their spice cake with cream cheese filling. 

Amanda Neaton: Amanda from Gingerly Baked is all about unique but timeless wedding cakes, made from premium ingredients — they’re almost too beautiful to eat! Her creations are always so tasty too! 

Denver Wedding Caterers

Ok, so you could just eat cake on your big day (no judgment here), but you’ll probably want to work with a wedding caterer too! Your wedding catering can be whatever you want it to be, whether you’re all about a casual food truck feed or fine dining. Here are a few fantastic options in Denver. 

Rocky Mountain Catering: Rocky Mountain not only delivers impressive cuisine, but they’re all about the guest experience and ensuring the meal and its presentation match your wedding vision. You’ll work with their wedding planner who doesn’t miss a beat!

Greens Point Catering: With decades of experience, Greens Point offers both full-service and drop-off wedding catering, making it easy to plan delicious meals your guests will love! From bartending to serving up late night snacks when your guests can use a nibble, they can do it all for you. 

Pit Stop: Chef James is a top choice for couples looking for delicious BBQs and pasta that are delicious — and definitely not pretentious. They cater but also have a food truck…and hell yea, my mouth is watering just thinking of their beef brisket! 

Best Wedding DJs In Denver 

There’s nothing like watching grandma really cut loose on the dance floor! The best wedding bands in Denver (and DJs!) are the ones who can read the crowd and put on tunes that’ll get everyone up for a boogie — yep, even dad! Here are a few in Denver that always deliver.

DJ Guy: Casey Smith is DJ Guy, and he’s hands-down my fav! With infectious energy and a high-quality sound, he’s so fun and energetic — wedding guests just love him and he has people dancing all night long. 

DJ Archie Jenks: John Archie is another awesome local DJ who really loves what he does. With premium sound equipment, he’s ideal for even the largest wedding and a lot of fun to work with too. 

Howe Eventful: Howe Eventful (love the name btw), is run by Beau, the heart and soul of the business. They don’t just do amazing DJ work but they also offer balloon arrangements and a huge LED wall that’s fun for indoor or outdoor weddings. 

Top Denver Wedding Planners

When booking wedding vendors in Denver, I recommend hiring a wedding planner first. They really help you orchestrate your day and take loads of stress away from busy couples. They’ll also help coordinate with your other vendors to ensure everything unfolds smoothly on your day. 

Kristen Cirillo: Kristen, who runs Forget Me Knot Weddings, is my number one go-to for planners. She’s always so attentive and will do anything for her couples on their wedding day! She also looks after set up and tear down, which is so helpful. 

Lili Black: Lili is a top local planner, especially for destination weddings. She’s punctual, professional, and always great to work with. Oh, and she also opened a new restaurant, Dig In, with killer charcuterie boards, paninis, and canapes — her food boards are perfect for wedding canapes as guests arrive. 

Kaitlin Shea: Kaitlin is such a pleasure to work with with a laid-back vibe–she does it all and will make your wedding planning a breeze. I always recommend her and she really listens to your needs and brings them to life. She’s seriously your gal!

I hope this gives you plenty to think about! However, if you need more suggestions on Denver wedding vendors, I’m all about weddings and can suggest some venues, engagement shoot locations, or bridal shops in Denver. 

I seriously want your wedding to be the best, which is why I suggest booking your Denver wedding vendors as far in advance as possible. Popular vendors, like the ones mentioned above, can sometimes book out up to a year in advance, and I know how disappointing it can be to miss out on your first choice. 

Oh, and if it helps, I’ve also put together this ultimate Denver wedding guide to help you get started!

If you’re ready to bring your wedding dreams to life, I’d love to hear from you! Reach out anytime and I’ll get back to you in 48 hours — I seriously can’t wait to hear about your big day!
