Oh, and you’ll be so happy with the 360-degree views from the property, taking in everything from downtown Denver to the Rockies.

Southern Elegance In The Heart Of Colorado: Why You’ll Love Weddings At The Manor House

No one does weddings like the Manor House! This grand estate has been featured in all of the major wedding publications, including Martha Stewart Weddings, Rocky Mountain Bride, Junebug, Ruffled, Magnolia Rouge, The Knot, and more. This venue is iconic and is definitely a coveted space by brides from both Denver and across the country, so be sure to lock in your preferred date as soon as you can. 

This elegant home, with iconic white columns, a beautiful wraparound porch, and over six acres of land, has been lovingly restored and has lots of gorgeous period furnishings. As a full-service venue that specializes in weddings, the wonderful team here can look after everything you’ll need, event planning services, event rentals, and in-house catering and bar services. 

The main ballroom can seat up to 200 for a reception, and you can say your vows in this stylish ballroom as well. Or, host your ceremony outside, overlooking the serene foothills of the Ken Caryl Valley. 

For smaller weddings, consider one of the Manor House’s fireplace rooms, cozy spaces adorned with timber bookshelves, sliding ladders, and comfortable furniture – so fun! Plus, your wedding images here will have that beautiful feeling of nostalgia for a bygone era. 

You can also add on the use of Kent’s Cottage as your getting-ready space, a charming, historic guesthouse with lots of natural light, which is good for those fun hair and makeup shots with the girls!

Timeless Beauty: Your Wedding Photos At The Manor House

The Manor House is the ideal backdrop for such elegant photography! If your vibe is all about natural beauty, timeless style, and a bit of history thrown in for good measure, then you’ll have such an amazing time shooting here. As your wedding photographer at The Manor House, I’ll make sure we maximize that damn good sunset lighting that the venue enjoys, and, most importantly, that you have FUN, feeling happy and relaxed so I can capture all of those magical moments. 

Outdoor ceremonies photograph so well here – think stylish white lawn chairs in a lush garden, overlooking the mountains – delivering a bright, airy feel. There are also open meadows, forested areas, and scenic spots where we can take tons of outdoor images that capture the beauty of the Colorado landscape. Of course, the gorgeous front entryway of the home is also an awesome choice for some fun couples shots!

The grand ballroom with its vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light streaming in and classic white walls also delivers a stylish setting for your reception shots. Check out the venue’s Instagram for more ideas that you might love for your photography! 

The Best Time Of Year For A Manor House Wedding

The Manor House really works as a year-round space, so you can’t go wrong, no matter what time of year you go for. Late spring and early summer are gorgeous with everything in bloom, but fall is also great with the vibrant leaves and the soft lighting we get as winter approaches. 

Also, think about the type of wedding you’re planning, as large, outdoor ceremonies are great here in the warmer months, but the cozy, intimate fireplace rooms are so gorgeous when it’s snowing outside! 

If you are considering an off-season date, know that the Manor House offers a seasonal discount of 25% site fee discount for November-April weddings, excluding holidays, so this can be a great way to stretch your wedding budget a bit further! 

But no matter what time of year you select, I’ll come prepared with the sunset times so we can make the most of Colorado’s epic golden sunsets!

The Manor House Wedding Packages 

It’s easy to plan your wedding here, with the help of your on-site event manager, who’ll ensure everything goes smoothly on your wedding day. Plus, all of the staff are extremely professional and detail-oriented. 

There are a wide range of wedding package options here, ranging from a morning brunch wedding to an all-day buyout of the venue. Weekday brunch weddings (7 am-2 pm) start from $4,000, while a Saturday full day buyout (10 am-11 pm) starts from $15,000. No matter what time you select, yours will be the only event during that time, ideal for exclusivity and privacy! 

Wedding packages include access to the venue’s private helipad, chairs, china, linens, glassware, and furniture, plus access to dressing rooms for both the bride and groom (some packages will also include the use of Kent’s Cottage). 

Then, you can select from a range of cuisine and bar packages, which you’ll select during an off-season tasting event in advance of your celebrations (so fun!). The menu here is always incredible, including amazing options like crab cakes, Skuna Bay salmon, white cheddar mac & cheese, and grilled flat iron steak. You can also add on Colorado craft beers for your guests, which is such a great way to support local businesses during your wedding!
