Wedding Guidelines

Thank you for considering the historic Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion for your upcoming wedding event. This 1908 building has seen a long and varied history; serving as a private home for 50 years to the Cheesman and Boettcher families, and since 1960 as the official home to Colorado's Governors. Over the past many years we have opened our doors to non-profit organizations and state agencies to host events, and are now happy to announce a new chapter in our community access, by allowing a limited number of weddings to take place on this grand property.

Please review all information found on this page, and in the Wedding Planning Guide and Wedding FAQ, prior to submitting a wedding date request. Thank you.

General Guidelines 

Please see the “Wedding FAQ” tab to the left for additional information
  • Stated Hours of Operation are the times within which the wedding event may take place. Setup and breakdown are allowed outside of those hours.
  • Residence staff will be on site for the duration of the wedding day to answer any questions that may arise.
  • Cash bars are not allowed.
  • Red and Rosé wines, as well as red drink mixers, are not permitted in the Main Residence, but are allowed in the Carriage House.
  • All decorations must be approved by the Residence Director.
  • All vendors (performers, photographers, etc…) must be approved by the Residence Director. Any vendors who may require access to the premises outside of the scheduled event hours are subject to a security background check.
  • There are two primary fees associated with use of the Residence.
    • A Usage Fee, which is payable prior to the wedding date.
    • A Security Fee, which is payable after the wedding date.
    • The Residence reserves the right to send an additional invoice following the event addressing damages, or any miscellaneous charges which may arise.
  • All payments must be made by check, as the Residence does not accept credit cards.

Event Request and Approval Procedure

To inquire about specific available dates, please send an email, using the Wedding Contact link on the left side of this page, with the subject, "Wedding Date Request." 

If the desired date is available, a formal request form will be provided for your completion and return. Following a review and approval of the event request form, you will be sent a confirmation letter and deposit invoice, in the amount of $2,250 (one half of the total Usage Fee).



Event cancellations must be provided in writing. One half ($2,250) of the total Usage Fee is refundable, if written notice of cancellation is received by our office more that 30 days prior to the wedding date. There are no refunds with less than 30 days notice.

Although highly unlikely, should the Governor's Office require urgent or emergency use of the Residence, we reserve the right to cancel any event. In that case you will receive a full refund of the Usage Fee.

Sorry, but we cannot waive, refund or cancel charges due to day-of-event inclement weather.
