Planning a Wedding in Golden

Golden is the perfect destination for a small-town wedding. Located only 12 miles from downtown Denver, Golden is Denver's closest mountain town. Sitting in spectacular Clear Creek valley, Golden is surrounded by foothills and mesas that offer year-round recreation and gorgeous spots for wedding photos. And at their base, pretty and historic downtown Golden is filled with breweries, fine dining, coffee shops, art galleries, museums and locally owned shops where guests can make their own memories. Combine that with one of the most beautiful creekside walks in Colorado and there’s no better place to celebrate a wedding than this historic little city.

Whether it be an outdoor patio with views of the foothills, an elegant garden terrace or a boutique hotel, the Golden venue you choose will make for a truly unique and memorable day.

Golden also features many experienced professionals who provide excellent services to meet all of your wedding needs. You will work with fantastic caterers, photographers, florists and other professionals.
