So, you’ve decided to get married in Estes Park! Let us be the first to say congratulations on the fantastic choice. From summer weddings set in blooming meadows to winter nuptials framed by snowy peaks, Estes Park is a terrific place to get married during any season, as the beauty of the Rockies is everchanging but always present. It’s where romance meets adventure, and where every turn holds the possibility of something incredible. It’s hard to ask for a wedding venue more perfect than the gateway to the Rockies, and once you’ve decided, all that’s left is the planning! While it might seem challenging at first to orchestrate a wedding in a smaller mountain town, we actually have a number of local resources that make it easy, from catering to full on wedding services. To take some of the difficulty out of planning your Estes Park wedding in the Rockies, we’ve compiled a list of local wedding resources below, so you can focus on enjoying the time leading up to your big day!
Of course, this is one of the biggest things to decide when it comes to your wedding day, and in Estes Park you’ll have lots to choose from. Maybe you want a traditional church for your nuptials, or perhaps you’re envisioning an outdoor venue with sweeping views of the mountains in a rustic setting—whatever it is you’d like, from intimate and secluded, to spacious and open. Popular local venues include everything from resorts to spots within the park. Many of the venues boast an alpine setting, and some of them have indoor spaces as well for those dreamy winter weddings. Some of the top-rated venues for Estes Park include Della Terra Mountain Chateau, Wild Basin Lodge, Taharra Mountain Lodge, Fall River Village, and The Landing at Estes Park.
This is one of the second things people think about the most, particularly with a destination wedding. You want to find a local caterer, yet you want to ensure that everything will go off flawlessly on the day of as you plan things from afar. Many times, the venue itself will have a catering option, but if you’re picking a spot where there isn’t a catering option, or if you want to choose the place yourself, you’ll find there are quite a few local companies that cater for wedding days. Local catering companies include Jubilations Catering, while Bird & Jim and Ed’s Cantina do wedding catering and host events such as rehearsal dinners.
Another vital part of the day is the chronicling of the memories you’ll make, meaning you’ll want an excellent photographer for the task. We have several local photographers in Estes Park, as the area draws those with a keen eye for natural beauty and talent with the camera. And as Estes Park is a popular spot for weddings, you won’t have trouble finding a local photographer if that’s what you’re looking for! Some notable options include Shutter and Stone Photography, Joe Pyle Photography, and Estes Park Photographer.
When your guests are traveling to a destination as gorgeous as Estes Park, you’ll likely want to plan out a few activities to enjoy with family and friends. A fun option is Wildside 4×4 Tours, or Estes Park Guided Tours, which offer a variety of activities.
