The thing that drew me to Della Terra was the breathtaking setting and luxury chateau. I'm so glad I chose them for my wedding venue because it was like having a personal wedding coordinator through it all. Everyone told me not to sweat the small things on the day of because noone else would notice if it wasn't perfect and there were no "small things" to sweat. The staff prepares you for almost everything you are going to encounter on your big day!

Della Terra is beautiful. The prettiest venue we looked at and their outdoor ceremony site is why we choose to get married there. We got married two weeks after the Colorado floods and it was stressful because we worried we might not be able to get to Estes Park. The staff a Della Terra worked tirelessly and communicated to us daily post flood. They drove all the roads to figure out our best routes and sent us lists of open hotels and restaurants for guest. The day of they were amazing. We never worried about a thing. I can't say enough about the staff or the beauty of the location. If you want to get married in Estes, look no further.

My husband and I got married at the Della Terra on Thursday, September 26, 2013 and it was the most perfect day. The weather was a perfect 65 degrees and sunny!
The week leading up to our wedding, we were not sure if it would happen as planned due to the flooding that had devastated a large chunk of our beautiful state..but Pam and the rest of the team at the DT were with us every step of the way. I cannot believe how accomodating, sympathetic and sweet they all were.
Pam called me daily to check on me, knowing that I would be freaking out (I was). She was kind enough to constantly email me any update she had, being positive, upbeat and determined to make sure the day would be perfect for us! They treated our day as if it was their special day as well and it felt like seeing family when we made it up there and Pam gave us a huge hug!
They went so above and beyond what you would ever expect a wedding venue to do!
Not only is this place beautiful, the DT team are worth every penny! Any bride is lucky to have worked with them!
~~~Thanks again DT staff! You guys helped make the day so wonderful! Everything flowed so well and you can tell that weddings are your passion and you treat each one as if it was your own! We will forever be greatful for what you did for us before and during our wedding! ~~~

After visiting Della Terra Mountain Chateau in August 2012, we knew we had to get married there. We picked a date (Friday, September 20, 2013), put a deposit down and spent the next 13 months planning and prepping for the big day.
But just over a week before our big day, Mother Nature had her own big plans. After watching the news day after day and seeing all of the devestation, we couldn't help but have a giant pit in our stomach.
Pam and her team at Della Terra stayed in contact with us, day after day, multiple times a day, keeping us as up to date as possible. No matter how dreaded that phone call was, Pam always called and showed us nothing but empathy. With every tear shed and hair pulled, Pam was right there with us. It was a rollercoaster of emotions that week before the wedding, but with Della Terra's support and understanding we couldn't help but know everything was going to work out, even though we made some back up plans just incase. And on Wednesday morning when we finally got the OK we planned the long, beautiful trek up to Estes Park.
As we pulled up to Della Terra, I think Jeff and I shed the weight of the world from our shoulders. And as we walked in to what seemed like the entire staff there to greet us with smiles and open arms, any lingering worries were shed. I think we were happy to see eachother and very relieved.
Della Terra went above and beyond for us and really gave us our dream wedding. The location is that of fairy tales. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the suites are the nicest you'll ever stay in. And the staff is the icing on the cake. The staff is wonderful, eager to help and always professional. I really can't say enough nice things about Della Terra. I feel the pictures speak for themselves, and after one meeting with the staff you will fall inlove with them.
Thank you Della Terra! You exceeded all our hopes and dreams for the wedding, floods and all. Pam, you will never know how much we appreciate your help through all of this. You have a heart of gold and we were lucky to have you by our side the entire time. Thank you for hosting our big day!

My husband and I had a wonderful wedding at Della Terra Mountain Chateau on Saturday, September 21st. At the beginning of the week, we weren’t sure the dream was going to come true with the floods blocking the roads into Estes Park. The Della Terra team was great during this time, providing us updates from the town meetings and helping to brainstorm ways to get into Estes. We held out hoping the roads would open up, not wanting to change venues. Miraculously, the alternate route to Estes opened, despite being a little longer of a drive, the route was beautiful. I can’t emphasize enough how glad my husband and I were that we didn’t give up on Della Terra and stuck it out! On Saturday, we woke up to blue skies and warm weather, and the outdoor ceremony couldn’t have been any better! Pam and her team ensured it went on without a hitch, keeping me worry free throughout the day. They were seamless in coordinating all the vendors around the floods and ensuring the room looked spectacular! I went from not sure where my wedding would be held to having a fairy tale wedding that multiple guests said was the best wedding they had ever been too! The Wedding would not have happened if the team at Della Terra hadn’t stayed positive and continued to support us as we worked around the town floods; we later learned that many other locations in Estes had canceled their Saturday weddings.
I was pleasantly surprised how the town of Estes Park has come together to clean up the area and reopen shops and restaurants. All my guests had places to stay and we were able to go out to eat to several different restaurants, purchase groceries and gas, and enjoy the atmosphere of downtown with no issues.
So again, a big thank you to the Della Terra team (especially Pam) who worked tirelessly to ensure that we could have our dream wedding, even with the nightmare floods that the area experienced(Della Terra never flooded).

I thought it was important to quickly post a review of Della Terra as our experience was truly unbelievable. Our wedding was scheduled for September 15, 2013. We arrived one day before the severe flooding that has tragically struck the front range of Colorado. The next few days were filled with uncertainty of what would come. As news continued to role in about all that had occurred it seemed impossible that our wedding would actually proceed as planned. The staff at Della Terra worked tirelessly over the preceding days of our wedding to make sure our special day would still happen. Its hard to put in words everything they did for us to help us and all of our guests arrive and have the most beautiful and special day. Every member of the staff was caring and went out of their way to help us through all the unexpected situations we experienced.
Our wedding turned out to be absolutely wonderful. Each member of the Della Terra team will forever have a special place in our hearts for all that they have done for us. The venue itself rain or shine is breathtaking.
Even though our wedding week was not as we expected it to be I would never trade it for anything else because the people we met and the experiences we shared will last with us forever.

Della Terra is the most beautiful, enchanting venue for weddings that you can imagine. On top of that, they are set up to have your wedding run as smoothly as possible, taking care of all of the logistics and coordination. You won't have to worry about a thing on your big day! We had an August wedding here, and it all went completely perfectly - not a single thing went wrong! You will not need a wedding planner to have your wedding here; you get to have a walk-thru a couple of months before your wedding, where you can go over everything with your coordinator at Della Terra. They know all of the details that need to be covered, and don't miss out on anything.
The facilities are impeccable. Both the outdoor ceremony site, as well as the entire chateau are wonderful. We had an outdoor ceremony, and then the reception was inside of the chateau. There is plenty of space for your other vendors, ie DJ and caterer, to set up without disturbing guests. And the suites are amazing! Not a single detail is left out. The decor is beautiful, the rooms are clean, and they haven't forgotten a single amenity here.
You can't go wrong with Della Terra! I would recommend this to anyone for a wedding venue, whether you live in Estes Park or out of state! Many thanks to everyone who made our wedding day perfect!

Della Terra is (and always will be!) such a special place to me and my husband. My husband and I first visited Della Terra on a romantic winter getaway in January of 2012. I was looking for a special winter retreat to surprise him with. When I found Della Terra, I knew this is the place we HAD to go. The whole place looked amazing, from the two person soaking tubs to the themed rooms to the private hot tubs.
I will never forget when we first arrived at this magical place. Our flight (from St. Louis, MO) got in late to Denver. We arrived in Estes Park at Della Terra right before the front desk closed. Darrell was so nice and told us everything we needed to know about the Chateau, even though it was right before close. When we walked into our room (The Passion) it was more romantic then I could have ever imagined. My husband and I had a wonderful trip in Estes and during our stay at Della Terra everyone was SO nice.
On the second to last night of our trip, after a wonderful evening of watching movies in the Chateau's private theater room, my husband (then boyfriend) got down on one knee in our room and asked for my hand in marriage. It was one of the most amazing moments of my life. The beauty and ambiance of Della Terra only made it that much more romantic.
When we returned to Della Terra in November of 2012 for our planning meeting with Jamie, we were so impressed. Jamie was an absolute joy to work with. She ran us through all the planning steps, the linens, etc. She was so patient with us. At this time I was actually pregnant (!) and had to get up multiple times for bathroom breaks, but she didn't complain. She was so organized and made me feel completely at ease that all the details of our day would be carried out without a hitch.
My husband and I got married on a Wednesday and had less then 50 guest and we feel we got a FABULOUS deal. The pricing was so reasonable for everything that was included! Ceremony space, reception space, linens, flatware, glassware, complimentary suite the night before and night of the wedding, and personalized planning assistance before the wedding and a wedding coordinator the day of the wedding.
Our wedding day was Wednesday, June 12th, 2013. I felt like an absolute princess. I could NOT have gotten through my day without Jamie, she was a lifesaver! Anything I needed and she was there. Whether it was windex for our glass centerpieces, benedryl for my bridesmaid who accidentally ate some shrimp flatbread (and is allergic to shrimp), or getting me and my bridesmaids mimosas while we got ready. It was like having a day-of wedding planner. She was PHENOMENAL and everyone talked about how wonderful she was. :)
I walked down the aisle past a deer, a chipmunk tried to crash our wedding party photos, and a bunch of wild turkeys and three black bears wandered by Della Terra during my reception. If that is not a magical, Rocky Mountain Wedding, I don't know what is! My guests could not stop raving about how perfect everything was, from the setting to the architecture to all the little details. There is NO other place I would have rather had my wedding.
I even got to have my two dogs in my wedding and our 7 week old daughter was allowed to get ready with me in my chateau suite, even though children aren't normally allowed in the suites (to preserve the romantic ambiance of the Chateau). My husband and I can not wait to celebrate our anniversaries here for years to come.
