Hands Down, the Most Beautiful Wedding Venue in Estes Park!

Reviewed on 8/27/2013 Jenni J

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... Read More 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!

Breathtakingly Beautiful; Fairytale Wedding Venue

I found Della Terra when my (now husband) and I catered another wedding here. We were married here on 11.29.14. My coordinator was Anna. She was absolutely fabulous all along the way during the planning process. Della Terra does weddings every day of the week....they know what... Read More to do. We had our walk through a few months prior to our wedding, and laid out every detail of how the day would go. Anna helped deliver our vision to a T, and was so professional & helpful. All of the crew at Della Terra was very helpful. We had some bar requests, and Marty (the bar manager), went above and beyond to help deliver our requests. Our guests were totally WOW'd by the venue. (we even saw a herd of Big Horn Sheep on the grounds during photographs). My nephew has coined the trip the "best vacation ever," and he has been to some really fantastic places. The value of what you get by having your wedding here is incredible! Not only do you get to have your wedding in this beautiful, majestic mountain chateau, but you get an awesome coordinator for the day (and throughout the entire planning process). I feel so lucky to have chosen Della Terra for my wedding day. I cannot wait to return for anniversaries, or really any excuse that I can think of... for years to come! The suites are also a great value & very comparable in price to local hotels, but they are absolutely breathtaking, and anything BUT your average hotel. Thank you so much to Anna and ALL the crew at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. You all made our wedding everything we ever dreamed of!

Truly a dream venue

As you can see, Della Terra is THE most beautiful venue in Colorado, trust me I looked at them all, and nothing came close. Nestled in the Rocky Mountain National Park, the views are amazing, from the mountains to the wildlife. And the best part is, no matter what location you... Read More decide to get married on the property (inside or out) you can see the majestic scenery. All of that you can tell from the pictures. What you can't see is how incredible the staff is. They take care of everything and my Aunt is actually an event planner and said she has never seen anybody so organized and thorough, which is exactly what you want to hear for your wedding day. From wedding rehearsal, to setting up for the ceremony and reception, to breakfast in bed the next day in the beautiful honeymoon suite, everything was perfectly planned and executed. The other great thing about this venue did how beautiful the inside is, everyone kept saying they felt like they were in Italy. It is gorgeous and doesn't take much as far as decorating which is great for the budget. I have been to several weddings since mine and nothing compares. The wedding night ran extremely smoothly and the pictures turned out amazing, all thanks to the Della Terra staff and the amazing venue they created. I would highly recommend this venue, its worth every penny.

Della Terra is magical. Anna was our wedding coordinator and she made our wedding so easy, and so perfect. It is a single wedding a day venue, meaning that they were flexible down to the last minute with our needs. The venue is glorious, and clearly designed with weddings in... Read More mind. They have flexible outdoor and indoor areas that you could use for your reception and ceremony, they have a salon and a theater for getting ready, and they have the perfect location for it all. Anna gave us all the tools we needs to accomplish everything; we found all of our vendors through them, they provided linens, and they have their own liquor license so they were our bar vendor as well. They were open to any questions I had or adjustments I wanted, and they were kind and attentive the entire way. They made planning a wedding easy, and they made the day of effortless. Anna made sure that everything was thought of and taken care of, and she took care of everything from our cake being sent to the right spot to making sure we were well hydrated throughout getting ready. I couldn't have asked for a better venue or a better team to work with. Every bride should have such a good experience, and they will with Della Terra.

We would happily and enthusiastically recommend Della Terra to anyone willing to listen. We had an absolutely perfect experience from start to finish and I don’t think we could have dreamed a better wedding. To begin, the locale is absolutely stunning. Both the views and the... Read More chateau itself are beautiful. Each place for the various wedding events you will have (from getting ready to the reception) is well thought-out and perfectly designed. I would list every little detail that we loved about each of these places but it is better experienced in person and there is still so much more to compliment in the review. Just rest assured that they have thought of EVERYTHING and there is a way to accommodate almost anything you can imagine. Which brings me to the element that made this more than just a beautiful place and made it the site of our dream wedding – the people. Every staff member we encountered made us feel welcome and completely cared for. Everyone is smiling and happy and it is just a warm, wonderful place to be. Even though they do weddings very frequently they seemed genuinely excited for and invested in ours – it made us feel so special. All of this positive energy and caring was put into our big day and it showed. There wasn’t a single problem, issue, hiccup, or annoyance on the day of our wedding. They even worked around the weather! If you have any concerns over it raining on your outdoor wedding they will make it work if at all possible. Their weather/rain predictions were spot-on down to the minute so we hit the perfect sunny window in our afternoon ceremony. We would also like to send a special thank you to our coordinator Tess. She embodied the caring, professionalism, and happiness we just mentioned and really made our wedding special. Every detail was taken care of even before we even knew it could potentially, maybe be a problem. You will not need to hire a coordinator and even if you had to hire one I’m pretty sure Della Terra’s are the best around so there is nothing to worry about! Overall, it was a seamless and wonderful experience and it is backed up by the glowing reviews we have received from all of our guests. Please put Della Terra on your short list of venue choices - you will not be disappointed if you decide to have the best day of your life there.

An Amazing Monday Wedding

Reviewed on 10/15/2015 Joelle W

My now husband and I fell in love with Della Terra Mountain Chateau the moment we stepped inside! It's an extremely luxurious and peaceful venue in Estes Park, nestled away on the mountainside by the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Rare for their couples, we chose... Read More to get married at the local Catholic Church, but they have a beautiful outdoor wedding spot that we took advantage of for photos and a private letter reading. We also chose to have our wedding on a Monday; this way we could still have our dream venue and stay within our budget, as weekdays are much lower in cost there. We worked with Anna, who was amazing from the start. She really took the time to talk through our event with us at the walk-through, going above and beyond as we selected all of our details. Even when Anna could not answer our questions via email immediately, one of the other team members there was always quick to get back to us. The event ran so smoothly, and our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was! We cannot wait to go back to Della Terra in the future!

BEAUTIFUL VENUE & PERFECT DAY!! THANK YOU Della Terra for everything you did leading up to our big day to make it so memorable! We knew we'd be in great hands when we decided to get married at Della Terra, but Tess (our wedding coordinator) and everyone at Della Terra went... Read More well beyond our greatest expectations! Tess even stitched up the back of my dress when the zipper malfunctioned- she's a lifesaver and so composed!! As the bride, I didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day and could just have a blast with our guests!! Our pictures are stunning and guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue is and how much they enjoyed vacationing in Estes Park and hiking at Rocky Mtn. National Park. We hope to visit again in the future for another wedding or a getaway!! Highly recommend to every bride (and groom)-to-be to get married here!

Wow. I could sum it up with just that one word….but I guess I’ll go on. First, Tess did a fantastic job as the day-of coordinator. Neither my husband, nor I were stressed out about minor details. They handled the day-of issues with the cake, caterer, florist, shuttle, and... Read More any other minor things that came up. Taylor was also amazingly helpful the day off making sure everyone in the wedding party was comfortable and ready to go. She even found a lint roller hidden away for one of my groomsmen who had a little dog fur on his suit. Most importantly, this place is STUNNING! The backdrop for the ceremony is beautiful and doesn’t need much additional decoration to make it perfect for a lifetime of pictures. Della Terra is prepared for everything as well – for outdoor ceremonies they have blankets if it’s chilly, umbrellas if its sprinkling, and seat cushions for the guests. They also have golf carts if some of the attendees have trouble moving around. I couldn’t be happier with what we got at Della Terra. (I would recommend a cocktail hour after the ceremony, this gives you a little slush time to allow a short rain shower to blow over) Reception hall comfortably fit 159 guests and a very large band. They cleared out the head table for the dance floor, which made sure people were up and moving. In addition to the inside, there is a patio that allows guests to get outside for some fresh air and cooldown time. The rooms that Della Terra provides are fantastic and romantic…plus they leave you a little surprise on the wedding night for after the party. In addition, the rest of the staff was great. Driving guests to shuttles and making sure things ran smoothly.

Della Terra Mountain Chateau was the perfect venue for our wedding in the mountains. We wanted our guests coming from over 15 different states to truly experience the mountain and nature here in Colorado that we love, and they LOVED IT. Not only is the venue perfectly located... Read More right next to the Rocky Mountain National Park, the staff that works here is just amazing. We came to Della Terra a few times during our planning process, and can't wait to go back for another visit.

Tess helped us through the planning process and being the first of my group of friends and family to get married, I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me through all the details and planning.

Our wedding was in March and we knew it was going to be hit or miss with the weather (it is Colorado, after all!)...but Tess, our coordinator, helped put all of our fears aside.

On the day of, Tess helped everything, and I mean everything, run smoothly. We were so pleased with Della Terra, Tess, and all the staff there. They were always courteous, caring, and professional. They also have a salon room onsite, which was really nice for all of us girls to get ready in. (You have to hire your own hair and makeup, which is fine) Then the boys got to get ready downstairs in the theatre room with nice comfy chairs and even got to relax and watch a movie. I don't know what else to say, but just check them out and see for yourself. I was so impressed!
