From the unique design to the ideal location, (just steps from Union Station) we know The Hotel Born would be the perfect venue for a city wedding. We did a styled shoot here for the Rooted in the Rockies conference last year, and we are officially in love!

The Restaurants: For the couple that appreciates delicious food and an intimate environment, a Colorado restaurant could be the right choice! We are surrounded by some absolutely amazing eateries, and we have some favorites that are perfect for a wedding reception!

Flagstaff House Restaurant Boulder Colorado Wedding

Flagstaff House (1138 Flagstaff Road, Boulder, CO)

Why We Love Flagstaff House : The views, the privacy and the food are all reasons we absolutely adore the Flagstaff House as a wedding venue. “Your special event should be more than just special — it should be perfect, yet personal, and utterly unforgettable. Let Flagstaff House create your private event in a gorgeous setting, with excellent service and outstanding cuisine. We are just five minutes from Boulder, offer a variety of rooms and terraces accommodating 12-200.”

Frasca Food & Wine (1738 Pearl St. Boulder, CO)

Why We Love Frasca : Frasca is the best of the best. Listed on the National Eater 38 List for four years in a row,  “Frasca is the creation of Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey and Chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson. Their shared passion for Friulano cuisine and fine wine is reflected in the exquisitely prepared fare and a comprehensive wine list boasting over 200 varieties.” We loved planning Jaime & Ben’s wedding reception at Frasca, the vibes were intimate and incredible romantic. To see details from their stunning wedding click here!

Tavernetta (1889 Sixteenth St, Denver, CO)

Why We Love Tavernetta : Located just steps away from Union Station and The Hotel Born, Tavernetta does not disappoint. From the same creators of Frasca Food + Wine, this restaurant is truly a special addition to the Denver food scene. “Tavernetta is the perfect setting for social gatherings, celebrations and business occasions. With thoughtful planning and detail, Tavernetta will personally work with you to design an event catered to your needs.” Tavernetta was also recently featured in the NY Times ’36 Hours in Denver’ itinerary!

The Kitchen (Locations in Boulder + Denver) 

Why We Love The Kitchen : A long time favorite of the Calluna Team, The Kitchen is the perfect spot for an intimate wedding. Delicious food and fabulous design makes this venue one of our favorites for a restaurant wedding.

Corrida (1023 Walnut Street #400, Boulder, CO) 

Why We Love Corrida : Winner of 5280 ’25 Best Restaurants in Denver for 2018′, Corrida offers esthetically pleasing spaces with a phenomenal menu. From intimate get togethers to a 200+ rooftop patio wedding overlooking a view of the flatirons, Corrida is the perfect, picturesque spot for your event.

The Outdoors :: For the couple that wants to celebrate in the natural Colorado beauty, we have some great spots for you to choose from!

Outdoor Ceremony Riverbend Rain Umbrella

River Bend (501 W. Main St, Lyons, CO)

Why We Love River Bend : You simply cannot go wrong with a natural gorgeous venue like River Bend, and we are totally big fans. “River Bend is a large property right on the banks of the St. Vrain River under towering, dramatic redstone cliffs. It has a park-like feel, with plenty of open grassy space, large shade trees, and a peaceful sandstone patio on the river.” We are still gushing over Lana (of Lana’s Shop) and Danny’s nuptials that we helped planned there a few years ago. Check out their gorgeous wedding on Martha Stewart Weddings!

Planet Bluegrass (500 W. Main St, Lyons, CO)

Why We Love Planet Bluegrass : “From spring thru fall, the 20-acre Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, CO is available for wedding rentals. Located just 25-minutes north of Boulder (midway between Boulder and Estes Park), the historic ranch property includes the entire riverfront of the North St. Vrain, east of the Lyons bridges on Highway 36.” Planet Bluegrass is an absolutely stunning venue and the natural beauty will make your big day special and beautiful!

Milston Well Farm (Boulder County, CO)

Why We Love Milston Well Farm : The owners Chris + Margaret explain why Milston Well is the perfect venue…” As soon as we moved in…We knew we had to host weddings and special events.  The farm is just begging to be celebrated and the way guests can move through the different spaces is quite unique.  Our view of the mountains is incredible and the way the light hits in the tree allée along the backside of the farmette is magical.” Since the venue only takes up to five weddings per year on the property, we were thrilled to plan a wedding with the farm last year and we look forward to planning another one with them in June 2019!

The Urban Spaces :: For the couple who wants to step a bit outside of the box, check out these amazing Denver venues.

Outdoor Ceremony Blanc Denver Wedding

Blanc (3150 Walnut Street, Denver, Colorado)

Why We Love Blanc : “Blanc is Denver’s eclectic event venue. Located in the heart of Denver, just north of the Ballpark neighborhood, the versatile space is perfect for everything from private parties to corporate events and ideal for a wedding dinner dance celebration.”

Moss (200 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO)

Why We Love Moss : Moss is a fabulous Denver venue perfect for weddings and other large events! “The building itself is an early 1900’s brick and steel industrial building with large windows and steel i-beams. We have amazing backdrops, great natural light and specialize in modern-industrial, rustic or vintage styles but are certainly not limited in our flexibility.” Moss has a special place in our hearts because of our fabulous Calluna Holiday party in 2016. Check out some of the amazing photos from Blair + Pedro’s 2018 Wedding here!

The St. Vrain (635 3rd Ave, Longmont, CO)

Why We Love The St. Vrain : We are THRILLED to have two couples saying “i do” at this venue in 2019! This venue is spacious, trendy and perfect for any couple looking to make the space their own.

The Clyfford Still Museum (1250 Bannock St, Denver, CO)

Why We Love The Clyfford Still Museum : We planned a wedding here last May in which the couple said their vows among beautiful artwork and enjoyed a delicious feast on the museum’s main level. This is the perfect venue for art lovers and creative couples.

SKYLIGHT (833 Santa Fe Dr, Denver, CO)

Why We Love SKYLIGHT : While we haven’t had a wedding here yet, we were thrilled to attend a holiday party in the space just after it opened! We absolutely love the ‘blank canvas’ and urban/industrial feel that Skylight offers and hope to plan a wedding here soon!
