Book Your Wedding with Gallery 1874


About Us

A converted original Grange Hall, Gallery 1874 is the oldest building in Arvada, Colorado, dating back to the 19th century year in its name. Choosing this space for your wedding gives you the perfect blend of contemporary artistic sensibility and historic Old West appeal. This charming space can accommodate up to about 200 standing guests, but has a lower seating capacity of about 150 depending on how you arrange your tables and chairs. The space can accommodate both ceremonies and receptions for smaller weddings.

With a warm entryway featuring a beautiful staircase and a renovated doorway designed to match the original entrance of the Grange Hall building, Gallery 1874 is beautiful from the moment you and your guests arrive. The interior of the building features high ceilings with exposed wood beams, elegant but refined crystal chandeliers, gallery display space and large windows to let natural light pour into the space. The building is spacious, featuring a stage area from which musicians can perform or upon which you can hold your ceremony.

Charming architectural details from the building's original design and unique modern touches such as an authentic antique London phone booth on display at the entrance make Gallery 1874 the perfect place for a sophisticated modern wedding. Take your first-look photos in the art gallery or line up your families on the stairway outdoors for friendly portraits. You can even pose with the phone booth or stage your own photo shoot area in one of the many well-lit locations throughout the building.


What You Should Know

You can reserve Gallery 1874 any day of the week at any time of year; special holiday rates may apply on certain dates. The space rents out in four-hour blocks starting with a basic eight-hour package. There are peak and off-peak pricing seasons for summer-fall and winter-spring, respectively. Within each pricing season, there is different pricing for Sunday-Thursday or Friday and Saturday, with the former days of the week providing a lower-cost alternative to the peak weekend days.

Gallery 1874 has an in-house caterer, but you may discuss the option of using a caterer of your choice instead if you so choose. If you choose to work with Gallery 1847's caterer, Samples World Bistro, you can get a discount on your venue rental fee. Cash bars are not allowed at this venue; if you wish to serve alcohol at your wedding, you'll need to purchase it and bring it to the venue yourself. From there, you can request that the catering company you hire serve the drinks for you. You can add a bar package to your event as well for additional bartending assistance. There are multiple catering kitchens on site and the vendor has an industrial ice maker. Setup, breakdown and cleanup are included in the rental, as are round and rectangular banquet tables with Chiavari chairs and linens

As a working gallery, this venue does feature original artwork on its walls. Art displays rotate out regularly and the art that's displayed during your event is not subject to your approval. Gallery 1874's curation staff is careful to select works that are appropriate for special events such as weddings. Any retail displays in the gallery move out during your event to give you the most convenient layout possible.
