This venue was much much more than a BEAUTIFUL space! The wedding staff made my wedding day the best day ever! It was truly a flawless event and with no stress at all. My wedding day had snow and they had staff outside shuttle my guests from their car to the wedding and ceremony site. They have a beautiful interior which made for a romantic evening! Tess was my wedding coordinator and truly went above and beyond to make my day special. They only have one wedding per day at this space, and they make you fee special. The staff delivered Mimosa's to the salon area, and helped decorate my honeymoon room! the breakfast was delicious and best of all they maintain a great schedule and remind you of what to do the day of! They are wonderful and I would recommend this venue to ANYONE. They keep track of all of your vendors to ensure they are on time as well. I can go on about how wonderful each staff I interacted with was! the site was truly breath taking and I have the most wonderful pictures! All of my guest had the best time and their space made even their pictures taken on their phone perfect. The inside is so beautiful minimal decorations (just centerpieces) were needed. They truly do all the hard work for you!
Della Terra was absolutely amazing! The wedding staff was awesome and always so quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls prior to the wedding. The venue is absolutely perfect for a wedding during any time of year, with locations for indoor and outdoor ceremonies and separate areas for the cocktail hour and reception. The reception area is absolutely perfect - the beams and hanging lights have a rustic, yet elegant feel, and the room is set up so that everyone is able to see the first dance, cake-cutting, etc. from their seats. We had Tess as our day-of coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing. After all the planning leading up to the wedding, it was so nice to hand off all the details to someone else and know that everything would get taken care of. One of the best parts about Della Terra is that it's truly all about the couple - Tess made sure that we got to eat some of the appetizers from our cocktail hour and get a breather between the ceremony and the reception. When we got up to our room after the reception, it was decorated beautifully and we were greeted with champagne and leftover food and cake from the reception. I would highly recommend Della Terra as a ceremony and recepton venue!
My husband and I got married here on 3/5/17. It is an AMAZING venue! The rooms are spectacular and the views breathtaking. Our guests absolutely loved the scenery and event space. The team is so incredibly helpful and they are with you every step of the way with every little details so that you don't have to worry about a thing on the wedding day. Our room was luxurious and we had a blast staying here with everyone for the whole wedding weekend. Our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about Della Terra. My husband and I loved every single thing about it. Highly recommend for any kind of gorgeous event!
Beautiful setting and the staff thinks of everything there. Such a great and romantic experience and they made my day that much more special.
We had our wedding at Della Terra in late October of 2017. Della Terra was absolutely fantastic as a wedding venue. Just Google pictures of it, it really is that beautiful. All of the staff there is very helpful and accommodating. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the venue, and they were flabbergasted at how beautiful it was. If you are looking for a medium sized venue (I think 185 guests is the max) with mountain views and a great staff, Della Terra is it. A few highlights from our wedding: 1) Our wedding coordinator Anna was beyond incredible. We met with her for a couple hours a few months before the wedding to plan out all of the little details (colors, ceremony schedule, bar selection, stuff like that). We also exchanged e-mails leading up to the wedding, and she was very knowledgeable about the process and did a fantastic job of breaking things down so it wasn't super overwhelming all at once. The day before she led our rehearsal and did a great job getting all our friends and family up to speed, and the day of the wedding she was all over the place making sure everything was running smoothly and everyone was having a great time. We did not have a separate wedding coordinator/planner, Anna from Della Terra took care of everything. 2) The groomsmen theater and the bridesmaid salon you get the day of the wedding were great. 3) The Della Terra staff was great about getting everyone shuffled around in the right place. They have golf carts to quickly move people around if the ceremony calls for it, or if elderly guests need some assistance. 4) The bride/groom get a suite the night before and the night of your wedding. The suite is unbelievably awesome, and everything is take care of which makes the whole ordeal much smoother. Overall we were very happy with Della Terra, and we will most likely be spending many of our anniversaries in the hotel portion of the lodge to celebrate the great wedding we had there.
Della Terra was the perfect venue for our wedding reception! The staff was so easy to work with and always very responsive. Tess was incredible and on our wedding, she was always right where we needed her! They are true professionals and made the whole day easy! We could not recommend them enough!
I cannot say enough about Della Terra!! We fell in love with this venue online and even more so when we toured it. Between the staff, the services, and the location, we couldn't be more pleased!! Our wedding turned out perfectly and the staff made sure we had the most stress-free wedding day! A special thanks to Marion who was our day of coordinator. She made everything so seamless and effortless for us. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!!!!
What more can I say about Della Terra that hasn't already been raved about. This place is designed to be the perfect place for a wedding. And on all accounts they delivered. We were originally matched with Tess as our day of coordinator but she has since left and we were switched over to Pam. Both of these ladies were absolutely fantastic to work with! We were a little concerned about the switch only weeks prior to our day, but what can you do, thats life! Pam did an exceptional job and made our day feel special. The moment we got there we knew that it was the place to be. The bridal suites are just that, SWEET! They include 2 nights (the one before and the one on your day) in these fantastic rooms as apart of the wedding package. The rooms include a 2 person hot tub on a private deck that will calm your nerves and warm even the coldest of feet. They have a jacuzzi and a walk through shower right next to the in bathroom waterfall. Even though we were a little busy with other things and didn't get a chance to use it, there was a huge flat screen subtly tucked away in the corner. The getting ready rooms were amazing. The women get a full blown salon with mirrors galore while the guys get a theater room with more movies than I thought existed. I do however have to say that it would have been nice to have a shower and connecting bathroom instead of the one down the hall for the guys. My guys just ended up showering in my room which they didn't seem to mind at all. They have an amazing outdoor area for ceremonies that is a must if the weather cooperates! There are blankets, cushions, and heaters available if it is a little chilly. If that does not work out, the indoor area is stunning. High ceilings and beautiful lighting still provide great views and a comfortable option. And they can transform the room in just a few minutes, making the flow from ceremony to dinner to dancing seamless. One of the best things about Della Terra is that many vendors know and work with them so often that they already know what they need. I can't tell you how many times we heard from all of our vendors after asking where our venue was, "Oh Della Terra?! They are the best! We know exactly what we need/ where to go/ who to call for anything." And none of them were wrong. It all was flawless. So much so it almost seemed magical... Our overall experience at Della Terra can not be shoved into the 3000 word limit that this web sight allows. We were so happy to have chosen Pam and her team to host our big day. They have all the things you want and a few extras that you never even knew you needed. They have done so many weddings that they know what look out for and what to expect. And they have you covered. We flew through our day with our biggest worry being what our best man or maid of honor would divulge to our families and to not step on each others toes during the first dance. All of the other details just happened because of the great job Pam did. We HIGHLY recommend Della Terra as the venue for your big day. The peace of mind of knowing that everything is being taken care of at all times is worth more than anything. Our day was perfect because of Della Terra and the entire staff that worked our event.
From our first visit to Della Terra to our farewell, every moment was surrounded by both a beautiful setting and a beautiful staff! Anna M. danced us through every step so painlessly! The day of the wedding dawned with blue skies and golden aspens! I cannot think of a better venue for our daughter's dream wedding! Thank you, Della Terra and Staff. As a side note, Della Terra provided vendor suggestions that were so helpful since we live in Pennsylvania and were planning a Colorado wedding! The vendors were as exceptional as the venue, and the costs were fair with great value. Thanks, thanks, vendors and venue! A "Shout Out" to Jay Kacik of Standing Room Only, Izzie at Jubilations Catering, Travis Broxton of Broxton Art Photography, Megan Swenson for makeup, Cloud 9 Strings for an incredible performance, Ben Dimarco for hair styling, and Brigitte from Floral Design of Europe. Wow!
Della Terra was just beautiful for our outdoor fall wedding. There were wild turkeys, deer and chipmunks that entertained our guests during the ceremony and cocktail hour. The staff were amazing, Marion couldn't have been more helpful and she made sure we started right at 4pm. Dan, Tyler and the bar staff were great and kept the drinks flowing all day. They are definitely pro's at weddings up there. The reception room is so wonderful there's little decorations that need to go in that space. It's definitely on the pricier side but it was worth it. We can't wait to celebrate our anniversary there!
I really can't say enough good things about our wedding day at Della Terra. Starting with the planning meeting, everything was perfect. The entire wedding team is a dream to work with - anytime I sent an email with a question (which was often, especially as the date got closer), I received a thorough response almost immediately. Every member of the team takes great care in everything they do, and this definitely shows in every aspect of their venue. The site for the ceremony, as well as the cocktail hour and reception, is gorgeous. Everything you need is on site, and they have really thought of everything. It was very clear from the beginning what was included with the rental, what was not, and what items we should be thinking about - being that we had never planned a wedding before, this was something that was extremely valuable to us. We have heard from countless guests how beautiful and well run everything was, and this is all because of the amazing Della Terra team. Thank you to the entire wedding team, and especially Tess, our day of coordinator, for helping make the best day of our lives so flawless!
Della Terra and the entire staff were absolutely amazing! They made planning from out of state an absolute dream and so easy! Our big day was absolutely perfect and they went above and beyond! They seriously think of everything. I would recommend them over and over. Can't wait to come back for our anniversary!
This was the most beautiful venue ever. Marion was the best as well. She kept our wedding on trac, and responded to every question I had! We planned our day from our of state, but Della Terra went above and beyond to make sure everything went as smooth as it possibly could! Also the rooms are gorgeous, and we can't wait to come back and spend a weekend there for a getaway!
I cannot put into words how incredible this venue was for our wedding! We got married here 8/18/17, and everything went off without a hitch. Everything from our very first tour to the big wedding day was simply perfect. The entire staff throughout our planning process and wedding day was so professional and courteous. Anna was our spectacular coordinator, and everyone kept commenting how well she kept the event running smoothly. My wedding day could not have been more perfect and lovely. A million thanks to the Della Terra and all their staff!!!!
All I can say is WOW! Everything about Della Terra is amazing and our Wedding day couldn't have gone any better thanks to them! Our guests said they all had a wonderful time. From the beginning we fell in Love with Della Terra when finding them by online searching venues in CO. They do so much for you on your wedding day that you feel so relaxed through out the entire process. If anything didn't go to plan with them, I didn't know about it because they're so prepared and always have a back up. We had Anna as our coordinator and she is truly so sweet to work with. She made it so easy and enjoyable we appreciated everything her and the staff did that day to make us feel so special. Our girls that were there during the day, Jordan and I can't remember the other, were so nice and did so much in our bridal suite for us. :) Thank you!! Plus you get to relax the night before and day of in a beautiful honeymoon suite which tops off the evening so perfectly to relax in. Della Terra, you're amazing and I wish I could relive that day over and over again! Thank you for all your hard work it was Perfect!
My husband and I had looked at several venues before seeing Della Terra, but as soon as you walk in here, you absolutely fall in love! It's the most beautiful venue and just perfect for weddings. The entire team at Della Terra work so well together and make you feel so special the entire time you're there. They have weddings pretty much every day so you know you're in good hands. When you book your wedding with them, you're assigned a wedding coordinator which had to be one of the best perks of having our wedding at Della Terra (other than the incredible mountain views!) We were assigned Anna, who was absolutely fantastic - more than we ever could have asked for! She was SO helpful and enthusiastic throughout the entire process. Planning a wedding can be hectic, but she had everything organized for us and made it a lot easier and less stressful. I'm 100% confident that no details will be forgotten if you have your wedding at Della Terra. I absolutely recommend Della Terra for the most perfect, fairy tale wedding!
We are so glad we had our wedding at Della Terra! The staff is phenomenal - kind, thoughtful, and they took care of everything! My wedding was the best day thanks to them. Plus, the venue is stunning. And wow, those suites? Like living in a dream! I would recommend Della Terra for your wedding as I had a flawless experience!
I really don't even know where to begin with this place. They are perfection. The entire staff is outstanding. Not only did my husband and I notice how great Marion is, but I had multiple family members and guests tell me that she was awesome. Marion, you executed everything perfectly and always stayed calm and collected no matter what. I cannot thank you enough. This venue is beautiful. One reason why we chose this place is because we felt like we didn't need to decorate a lot. The place is gorgeous on its own. The suite we stayed in was beautiful and made us feel special. I'd also like to thank Dan and another girl who just started working here( I'm sorry I can't remember her name) they took care of the entire bridal party as we were getting ready. They were friendly and professional. I love the Della Terra!!!
Wonderful experience and great staff! Thank you Anna for helping make my dream wedding come true!
When I toured the Della for the first time I immediately knew it was exactly what I envisioned for our wedding day! It is the most beautiful venue and the staff there are ALL absolutely AMAZING! They were such a huge help and made my wedding day run so smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing because they were on top of everything from day one! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone envisioning a mountain theme wedding with amazing staff to help and stand by your side through the stressful process of planning a wedding!!
Having your wedding at Della Terra will be the best planning decision you will ever make! The staff are all so detailed oriented and attentive- I was emailing back and forth with our fabulous planner, Marion, for over a year and she was so extremely kind, patient, and helpful every time we talked. You will not have to worry about a thing on your wedding day- the staff works together to make your day a true dream. Also, their vendor list was excellent- our experience was beyond our expectations; Della Terra is a must if you are looking to get married in the mountains. Our guests could not get over how gorgeous the scenery and Chateau were, as well as how smoothly the whole day went. Thanks Della Terra!
I took a risk and had my wedding in April. I was blessed with unbelievably great weather, but that wasn't even the highlight of my wedding. With only four months to plan, I was in need of some extra help. Della Terra and the wedding coordinators were accessible and dedicated every step of the way. They took care of the details that I could never have possibly thought of, let alone planned. Without them, I'm not sure how the wedding would have turned out. With them, it was such an extraordinary day! Months later, I still receive compliments about how it was the best wedding and incredibly fun. Aside from the elk, big horn sheep, turkey, deer, birds and countless other animals roaming the property (my family called it the "Snow White package"), the property itself is stand alone beautiful. It's impossible to complain about. My professional pictures were obviously great but even the pictures taken by my friend's and family were amazing! If you want to take the worry out of wedding photos, have your wedding at Della Terra. The coordinators are so strategic with every aspect of the wedding, that the ceremony and reception were seamless and perfectly executed. Trust them, they know what they're doing! They are professionals in every sense of the word. I will be coming back to Della Terra every year for our anniversary as the accommodations are impeccable. Overall, I can honestly say I had my dream wedding thanks to Della Terra.
To provide some background, I had a beautiful winter wedding over New Years in Estes Park in January 2016. While Della Terra is a beautiful location in the heart of the mountains right outside of the Rocky Mountain National Park, the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, especially the owners, in helping to make my wedding day the most wonderful day of my life was less than to be desired. The venue hasn't decided whether it wants to cater to a romantic setting for couples or a wedding venue which inherently conflicts with one another. Guests are scolded for parking in the wrong area or walking through areas of the chateau they reserve for guests, making it a very uncomfortable predicament for those you have invited to share in your special day. During the day of my wedding, the wedding scheduled for the next day rehearsed in my ceremony area while my family and friends were trying to decorate. To make matters worse, the other weddings' wedding party went through my decorations still in boxes, dirtied the aisle I would walk down, and wouldn't move out of the way on my special day. The venue did nothing to prevent this. After the reception ended that evening, the owners hurriedly dismissed my guests and made my parents feel like a burden to hurry and get all of our decorations, china, etc. out of the way. It is very much a business for profit only in their eyes, and not a day to focus on making it very special for the bride and groom and families that paid 5 figures to hold the ceremony and reception at the location. The venue is gorgeous and the guest rooms are nice. Our wedding consultant Anna was also very professional and managed the day well. However, we were very frustrated by certain actions, decisions, and treatment made by the venue's owners and wouldn't necessarily recommend Della Terra for your special day unless you know these details when making the decision and are fine with them.
My husband and I recently got married at Della Terra. From the start of our tour we were in love with this venue, and on our wedding day all of our guests fell in love as well. We heard from so many of our guests comments like "no really, this is hands-down the most beautiful wedding we've been to". Della Terra is pricey, especially if you get married on a Saturday in summer, but it gave us and our guests an unforgettable experience. Our only real complaint is that it seems silly they don't have some LED candles available for the outside wall, given that they're long lasting and they recommend them to each of their clients. It just seems like a waste to have every couple buy 50-100 LED lights, just to get rid of them right after the ceremony. When you're paying so much money to a vendor that cares about the environment, you'd think that they'd help couples out and reuse these items. Still, this is a pretty minor complaint as all in all we loved Della Terra (and our coordinator Marion)! :)
We were so lucky to have found Della Terra for our wedding! Both the indoor and outdoor areas are stunning, and the staff and owners are truly amazing to work with. They make the whole planning process so easy and memorable, and we will always cherish having our special day there. Our coordinator Anna was so amazing and helpful and we could not have done it without her! I cannot recommend Della Terra enough for anyone looking for a beautiful mountain wedding venue and a stellar team of people!
