Our team loved working with Bonnie and Casey to plan their Colorado destination wedding in Estes Park. They split the day’s events between two venues, YMCA of the Rockies Overlook Chapel and Taharaa Mountain Lodge, to bring their vision to life! Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the stunning mountains Colorado is known for, while their ski lodge reception exuded rustic elegance.
All the couple’s friends and family traveled to the mountains to make their celebration feel extra special. We had so much fun working with them, and we’re excited to share the beautiful results!
Outdoor Ceremony & Ski Lodge Reception
The couple hired a party bus to transport their guests to the Overlook Chapel at YMCA of the Rockies for their wedding ceremony. A jaw-dropping view of Rocky Mountain National Park formed the backdrop for their vow exchange! Afterward, while the couple and their bridal party posed for portraits, their guests enjoyed a casual cocktail hour accompanied by a string trio.
Then, the bus transported their guests to Taharaa Mountain Lodge for the reception, complete with lounge furniture, yard games, and curated cocktails. After heartfelt toasts from the couple’s families, everyone sat down to a gourmet meal catered by the lodge. Diamond Empire Band hit the stage, and everyone danced the night away!
