Topic 1: About BLANC Denver

Why Have Your Wedding at BLANC Denver?

BLANC Denver is the perfect place to get married because it looks like a small villa, able to provide those timeless, pristine photos you may desire, but nestled in the heart of the Denver RiNo Arts District, leaving plenty of space for some edgier portraits outside of the venue, should you want them! There are also art galleries and shops and restaurants within walking distance of many hotels nearby, which is great for guests flying in, or even for you and your partner to enjoy a night on the town after your wedding!

Topic 2: Planning Your BLANC Denver Wedding

Top Venue Features

  • No true getting ready space, so I recommend the nearby Source Hotel (super fun hotel with a market and florist and some restaurants on the first floor) or the Ramble Hotel, which is minutes away. The Ramble Hotel has a beautiful speakeasy style bar downstairs, and has a more sultry feel than the Source Hotel, which is a brighter and more modern style. You can’t go wrong with either! 

   Although not having a dedicated getting ready space may seem like a downer, given its close proximity to either hotel, we can pop over to the venue to have you “change” into your formal attire at the venue if you’d like, or you’ll just be fully dressed when you arrive. The one reason we love this approach, specifically at BLANC, is because they use every room during the wedding, so that bright room that would typically be for getting ready photos, ends up being used during catering. So your guests get to see the entire venue! *do take note of the fact that there is not much storage space on-site, so pack smartly!* 

  • Transportation to and from the venue is super easy if staying in any nearby hotels, and you can park anywhere along the street, which is not metered on weeknights! 
  • Huge space that can seat a ton of guests, or feel as intimate as you want.
  • Did we mention it’s DOG FRIENDLY for your ceremony?!

Ceremony Site Options

Site Option #1: 

  • Outdoors facing the white wall
  • See above for Rental Cost (included with venue fee)
  • Bright, airy, trees surrounding and the most popular choice for our couples. 

Site Option #2

  • Outdoors facing the Barn Wall
  • See above for pricing (included with venue fee) 
  • Same lighting as Option 1, but appears more rustic and slightly darker due to shooting against the closed barn doors.

Site Option #3

  • Indoors, against white walls
  • Very bright and airy
  • Great Option in case of excessive rain, wind, hail, or snow.

Reception Site Options

Site Option #1

  • All dancing must take place in the Main Gallery Room, but cocktail hour is best outside near the barn walls (or adjacent white wall depending on where you choose for your ceremony). For large guest counts, this truly is the best alternative!

Site Option #2

  • If you have a smaller guest count, consider using the smaller, bright white room for your reception! It feels more intimate and is great for one long table all throughout.

The Best Time of Year to Get Married at BLANC Denver

Because BLANC is inside the city and has indoor/outdoor options available to you, we truly don’t think that there’s a bad time of year to get married, but we will break it down here for you based on weather and what you’re looking for! 

Peak Season

May through October: This is BLANC’s peak season, meaning it’s the most popular booking time of the year, and therefore, also the most expensive (but do consider a weeknight versus weekend date, as they discount those). The weather during early May is usually consistently warm, but bear in mind that it truly can snow here until around the end of May. (The same is true for mid-to-late October). However, June weather is likely mid 70’s – 80’s, with weather getting warmer through the summer months, and cooling off again in September through October (the most popular times to get married!). Travelling to and from the venue during these months should be pretty easy, as the weather is usually warm and sunny (bring SPF – we are much closer to the sun here so you’ll be surprised how fast you’ll tan (or burn!) If considering the months of May, September or October, I’d also recommend you plan ahead for a bit of wind or rain and bring a light jacket or shawls! Also bring lots of water (again, closer to the sun and you’ll dehydrate faster up here!)

Off Season

November through April: BLANC considers this their off-season, meaning you’ll get a discounted rate. We think this is a gorgeous time to get married here, and that our couples should consider it for a few different reasons! 

  1. Contrary to popular belief, although it MAY snow during these months, Colorado is known for its exorbitant days of sunshine in one year. November, although can be chilly, is usually pretty dry and temperate (though we always recommend you bring a jacket and understand snow is likely.) 
  2. Some of our couples absolutely DO want snow for their weddings, which we think is gorgeous for your portraits and providing a cozy ambiance to your day. This venue is perfectly equipped for winter because it isn’t relying on outdoor elements for its charm and therefore, is just as pretty (ie, you’re not shooting in dead grass). That being said, if you’re looking for a higher chance of snow, consider January, February or April for your wedding. These are our snowiest months in Colorado! 
  3. This time of year is less popular with tourists, so you’ll find cheaper hotels near Denver and also less crowds. 
  4. You can head up to the mountains like Breckenridge, Aspen, or Vail for some skiing (bear in mind that i70 Traffic can get wild in the mornings on weekends, but if you leave midday or midweek, you’ll be fine!)
