I am OBSESSED with the beauty and charm of Della Terra Mountain Chateau weddings! Della Terra Mountain Chateau is a boutique mountain inn, in Estes Park. It’s so luxurious; a secluded natural oasis with stunning mountain architecture — think exposed beams, beautiful stonework, and plenty of hot tubs! Oh, and did I mention you’re just minutes away from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, so good! 

This venue is just stunning when it comes to natural beauty too — it’s ideal for couples looking for an elegant mountain venue that feels completely private, with super lux cottages and suites for you and your guests to relax in. Couples who are all about premium, luxury experiences will absolutely love it here, especially if they’re big mountain lovers. This charming inn is just 90 minutes from Denver International Airport. 

Here’s everything to know about planning the best wedding ever in Della Terra Mountain Chateau in Estes Park, Colorado!

Colorado Mountain Weddings At Della Terra Mountain Chateau

Your wedding in Della Terra is going to be so damn beautiful. They provide you with plenty of ceremony and reception options, so it’s easy to customize the venue to suit your vibes. 

The Devotion Place is a gorgeous outdoor option; an outdoor pergola in a garden oasis, complete with a romantic cedar trellis and epic Rocky Mountain Views. There are even wild turkeys that roam the grounds, so you never know what fun wildlife you’ll see here. You truly feel like you’re fully immersed in nature! 

Or, the Celebration Space is a stylish indoor option for a ceremony or your reception, in brick and stone design, with grand balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows, and two large fireplaces. 

One amazing point to mention is that Della Terra is pet-friendly! Dogs are always welcome, or heck, you could go all out and bring along some llamas for your wedding photos!

You can get married here at any time of the year, but the best time to have your wedding is in the spring, summer, or fall. It’s for sure a winter wonderland when the snow is falling though, but just know the winter landscapes can otherwise be a bit dull, as nothing is in bloom. It’s worth noting though, that Della Terra, like many areas of Colorado, is at a higher elevation. So, if your guests are coming from out of state, encourage them to stay hydrated to help prevent altitude sickness. 

Rustic Elegance & Charm: Your Wedding Photos At Della Terra Mountain Chateau

You are going to LOVE your wedding photos here! As your wedding photographer in the Della Terra venue, I know this space well and can ensure we create vibrant, candid, and fun images, taking into account the light, time of year, and weather. Or, a weekend away here would also be ideal for taking those quintessential Colorado engagement photos

There is such a super cute stone footbridge which is ace for taking romantic couples’ portraits, with gorgeous gardens and classic mountain views in the background. There are also gardens and open green spaces, framed by tall pines and epic boulders, which will add some contrast and energy to your gorgeous images. 

Plus, the main indoor reception venue has so much natural light streaming in, great for bright, airy, and natural shots. 

They do allow drones to be flown at this venue, with some mild restrictions on not going past the back of the venue forward due to the privacy of other guests. 

Wedding Packages: Della Terra Mountain Chateau Prices

Della Mountain specializes in weddings and has an amazing team to help — I often work with Rachel when shooting weddings here, one of the planners on site, and she’s one of the best in the business! However, all the staff are really exceptional and friendly, which elevates your wedding experience. 

Wedding packages here are for a duration of up to seven hours, which includes access to your ceremony and reception spaces, plus several indoor and outdoor cocktail areas. Each wedding also receives a complimentary honeymoon suite for the night, plus you can reserve blocks of rooms for your guests. Onsite catering is also available. 

Your package also includes access to two getting-ready rooms — guys tend to get ready in the fun Theater room, with comfortable lounges and a large TV, while the girls have a salon space, ideal for hair and makeup with your best gal pals. 

To inquire about pricing, contact the venue directly. You can also get in touch to plan a venue tour, the best way to check it out for yourself. 

Why You’ll Absolutely Love The Della Terra Wedding Venue In Estes Park

Staying at Della Terra is such a treat for your guests! They can book one of the property’s chateaus or private suites, which seriously impresses with a daily chef’s specialty breakfast, made to order, plus access to a private lounge and bar, a spa, and the Lodge Room, a super relaxing lounge, done up in stone, with comfortable lounges, a fireplace, and even an indoor waterfall! There are cabins on site as well, but they don’t include these amenities. 

However, if your guests don’t want to stay at Della Terra, there are plenty of hotels and B&Bs very nearby, as Estes Park is a popular tourist destination. 

Estes Park is also such a good choice for an adventure destination gateway since it’s literally the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, ideal for hiking, exploring, and wildlife watching — elk and bears are common in this area. Encourage your guests to also check out the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, the most picturesque drive in the area. 

The town of Estes Park is also cute, check out the popular Riverwalk area or plan a fun group dinner for everyone in one of the town’s pubs or restaurants, a great way to welcome everyone to your wedding!
