Reception site ideas?

Hi everyone!  I'm just in the very beginning planning stages.  I'm thinking about reception sites and was wondering if anyone here has any ideas?  I was thinking about something outdoors.  We're both into the outdoors and I'm really into local food, so I was thinking a farm would be super awesome.  Something like that.  Anyone know of any place like that which could accommodate about 200 guests?
In a totally different direction, I also thought a wedding at the Denver Public Library would be super cool.  Don't know if that would even be possible.
I feel like I can't plan much else if I don't have a site picked out, you know?

    Oh, wow--the library idea is fantastic, but I'm guessing it would be difficult as it would have to be during closed hours (at least I assume so).  You may have more luck with a private school, which can give you a similar sort of feel.  I photographed one at the Fountain Valley School which was fantastic--they provided so much for the couple: http://fromthehipphoto.com/karen-pjs-wedding/

    On the farm tip, I'll be shooting at the 63rd Street Farm in Boulder later this month.  I went to meet with the folks who run it and to get a lay of the land a couple weeks ago and the spot was fantastic and the staff was extremely helpful.  I think they would be able to accommodate 200 people, too, since they have indoor and outdoor spaces.  You can check them out here: http://www.63rdstreetfarm.com

    This is not in central Denver, but I recently met with a couple who is using the Spruce Mountain Ranch and it looks *amazing*.  They're only just starting to do weddings, too, so you may be able to get a good deal: http://www.sprucemountainguestranch.com/wedding/

    Good luck figuring this out.  The venue is probably the toughest decision to make, but once you've got it off the list it's a huge, huge relief!

    the knot has  lots of reviews under their local section

    my best advice is to call and ask!


    and happy planning!
