Denver Wedding Venue Spotlight


If you've been following our blog or Instagram you'll notice that we're going to be highlighting venues in our home states! Next up on our venue tour is the beautiful Denver, Colorado. From the gorgeous red rocks to the beautiful parks, Denver is city that has our heart! 

Denver is the home to many unique wedding venues, so it was hard to choose our favorites! Just like last week's blog post, we have aimed to feature venues that range in style from modern to country chic to garden and historic! 

Rustic Chic // The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park

The Barn is a spectacular venue with something for everyone to enjoy during your event. Arrive at the historic Barn Chapel and sweep across rustic wood floors into this spacious and charming log building. The Barn Chapel was created through the recycling of materials from multiple historic buildings found throughout Colorado, including five old barns, a church and a resort, make a unique venue for your next event.

The focal point and heart of The Barn Chapel are the beautiful antique stained glass windows. From the Barn and Fields, your guests can take in gorgeous views of the reservoir, pond and the high mountain meadows that are home to the buffalo, elk, yak, goats and fallow deer. The adjacent Fields at Evergreen Memorial Park can accommodate large or small weddings, ceremonies or parties.

Modern Muse // Artwork Network Gallery and Event Center

The Artwork Network Gallery is classy and stylish - the perfect metropolitan setting for your wedding or reception.  The space features high, vintage white tin ceilings, hardwood floors, and lots of natural light. 

The gallery exhibits beautiful, contemporary artwork throughout, which creates a great backdrop (and a perfect conversation starter) for your event.  The artwork adds an extra element of uniqueness - with hundreds of artists rotating through the gallery, no two weddings will be alike!

The Gallery offers versatile photo opportunities ranging from fun & funky to sleek & metropolitan.  In addition to the art on the walls, the alleyways contain colorful murals for an urban backdrop.

Urban Vibes // Moss Denver 

Located at the south end of Denver’s Santa Fe Art District, Moss Denver delivers a backdrop ideal for all occasions! Since opening in 2015, Moss Denver has played host to weddings, corporate, social and philanthropic events and celebrations. The 1936 restored brick and steel building immerses its guests in the aura of this industrial urban venue! Inspired by its artistic owners, Moss Denver provides a stylistic space uniquely re-purposed with each event it hosts.

Our Brilliant Bride Grace | Real Wedding | Brilliant Bridal Denver

We love these beautiful pictures from our Brilliant Bride, Grace!  Grace and Clark were just married this past August and you can tell from the pictures how much love this couple shares.

We're obsessed (obsessed) with the back of Grace's bridal gown! 😍  Seriously, how perfect is this gown for a late summer wedding!  The combination of the soft tulle and lace applique with the beaded open back is perfection.  Grace wore a Moonlight Bridal wedding dress she said yes to at Brilliant Bridal Denver.

We are so excited to be kicking off our new series "Alterations Answers" today!  We know that the process of getting your bridal gown altered can be super overwhelming.  Our bridal stylists are very knowledgeable about many alterations details, but we know, sometimes you just want to get an answer from a professional!  So we have teamed up with our friend and expert seamstress Donna from Donna Beth Creations in Denver to answer some of your most frequently asked alterations questions.

Our Brilliant Bride Bryce | Real Wedding | Brilliant Bridal East Valley

Get ready for all the mountain wedding vibes.  Bryce + Jacob were married in August outdoors in the beautiful tall pines of Flagstaff, Arizona.  Their wedding was intimate and full of family, friends and personal touches.

And ok, we know that really weddings aren't all about the dress.  We know there are other important parts to a wedding.  (Like the marriage and commitment part.)  But OMG can we talk about Bryce's bridal look for one second.  

Bryce found her private label gown at our East Valley location and it's truly the perfect dress for a wedding in the mountains.  The boho inspired lace sleeves and flowy chiffon skirt belong in this setting.  And paired with her flower crown and lace trimmed veil?  😍 😍 😍  Everything is on point here!  

Scroll on for all the sweetest little details Bryce + Jacob wove through out their big day.  Personal favorites are the chandelier over the "au natural" dance floor and the woodsy dessert table.

Thanks to Tyler Branch Photo for these stunning images!
