The Manor House in Littleton Colorado was one of the best wedding venues that I toured when I was searching for the perfect place to get married. The house itself (which really should be described as a mansion) is so grand and is exactly what many brides are looking for on their wedding day. There are only a small handful of places in Colorado that spring to mind when looking for a wedding venue that looks like it's straight out of the Antebellum south. If photos of mansions that look like the Tara Plantation from Gone With the Wind are pinned to your pinterest wedding board you must do yourself a favor and check it out. The Manor House Littleton Colorado sits atop a hill with 360 degree views of Deer Creek Canyon and the foothills. Off in the distance you can even spot the skyline of downtown Denver which is about forty minutes away. Be sure to scroll through the Manor House pictures above to get a good idea of how real weddings at The Manor House wedding photos look.
For engaged couples who like history, the Manor House is sure to please. It was once owned (and commissioned) by John Shaffer, a man who made his fortune in the cattle, grain, and railroad industries. He asked the architect Frank Edbrooke (the architect who built the incredible Brown Palace Hotel one of Denver's most famous hotels) to build this American Georgian house which was completed in 1914. He named his cattle company after his sons Ken and Caryl and that's what this area is known as today so you’ll often see this wedding venue listed as The Manor House Ken Caryl. You know the Manor House Littleton CO mansion is fit to host a first-rate wedding because it once housed both President Theodore Roosevelt and President William Howard Taft. How many other venues in Colorado can say the same?
One thing I particularly liked about the Manor House wedding venue is that it blended it's historical charm with modern conveniences quite well. I can't stand it when a historical building has been so updated and renovated that you walk in and can't see the difference from a house built in this century. The Manor House isn't like that. You walk in and you still have a sense of it's history. This isn't to say that they haven't invested in the property to turn it into the perfect place to host a wedding. There are a number of features that they have added to turn it into a charming place to host your wedding.
They have turned the basement area into quite the cozy man-cave with exposed brick walls. There is a flat screen T.V., a pool table, and tons of comfy leather chairs. I joked that if I were to book the place that my husband and I might have to trade getting ready spaces. The gals area is quite lovely itself though and for natural light it's the clear winner between the two his n' hers spaces in order to create the best wedding photography. The bridal room is located on the second floor with plenty of space to spill out of the getting ready room if needed. It has a lot of nice vintage touches and combined with that lovely light coming through all of those windows it's a wedding photographer's dream! All of the stunning natural light throughout the entire Manor House Denver is one of my favorite features of this Denver metro area wedding venue.
The outdoor spaces at the Manor House are gorgeous and not just because of the views of both the Ken Caryl neighborhood and downtown Denver. There is a large nicely manicured lawn right in front and the backyard ceremony space houses a lovely garden. And if you prefer wild tall prairie grass which Colorado is known for it's right there waiting for you too. There used to be a large white tent right next to the house. But, they have built an enormous beautiful enclosed ballroom building with a stunning fireplace in recent years and it is absolutely gorgeous. It has these incredible wood beams on the ceiling with their signature chandeliers hanging from the center of the roof line. And I LOVE how much natural light pours in from all of the large windows. Props to the Manor House for adding skylights!
I saved my absolute favorite thing about the Manor House for last. This is the one feature that made it very hard for me to go anywhere else to get married and that is the huge wraparound porch. I don't know what it is about a big patio, but the Manor House has the widest, most beautiful porch. It's grand enough to hold your first dance or the cocktail hour and in fact it even has room for tables and umbrellas. There is a large staircase leading up to it and a beautiful chandelier hanging from it's tall ceiling. Just thinking about it makes me want to go sit on a porch swing and sip some sweet tea on a hot summer day! You definitely want to go scheduled an in person visit. You will not regret hosting your nuptials at The Manor House wedding venue!
