Denver landmarks hold a special place in the hearts of residents of the Mile High City. Denver Broncos fans can get married at Sports Authority Field, while history buffs can tie the knot at the History Colorado Center. Other Denver museums offering unique venues include the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, as well as the Molly Brown Summer House Museum & Event Center. The Grant-Humphreys Mansion, located a stone's throw from the Governor's Mansion, also makes an elegant choice for weddings.

History Colorado Center opened its doors in 2012, and the sleek space seems to have been designed with special events in mind. The four-story atrium is available for evening wedding receptions after the museum closes, and can seat up to 400 guests. For smaller weddings, the Mountain View Event Room can seat up to 250 guests and is available for day and evening weddings.

Sports Authority Field at Mile High is home to the Denver Broncos, and fans can get married at the venue where all the football magic happens. The sports stadium can provide seating for more than 3,000 guests -- but not on game days, of course. Planning a wedding in January can also be difficult because the venue will not schedule events until it has been decided whether or not the Broncos will be in the playoffs.

The "Unsinkable Molly Brown" had not one, but two houses in Denver. The Molly Brown House is open for tours, while the Molly Brown Summer House is available for weddings and special events. The country estate of the famous Titanic survivor offers space for both outdoor and indoor weddings. However, there is no guarantee that marriages performed at the Molly Brown Summer House will be as unsinkable as its namesake!

The historic mansion built by a former Colorado governor offers indoor and outdoor spaces for weddings in Denver. The Beaux-Arts mansion was completed in 1902 for James Benton Grant, who served as the third governor of the state from 1883 to 1885. Albert E. Humphreys purchased the mansion in 1917. The mansion is not available for rental on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Year's Day.
