This lovely couple came all the way from Texas to have their dream Winter wedding in the mountains. May Ann & Roy did an elopement package on a weekday at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. Even though it was just the two of them it was still a grand affair! It was so sweet seeing Roy help his bride with her tiara and fur shawl before we headed out for some photos. We were able to spend an hour with them before the ceremony taking some great photos with the mountain backdrop. Della Terra has gorgeous views from all sides and is a beautiful place to share your vows in Estes Park, Colorado.
They hired a flutist to accompany their ceremony and intimate reception which worked perfectly for their occasion. Christen, played a multitude of popular songs on her flute and I was impressed with not only how many songs she knew, but her skill level. For the first time ever, Della Terra held a ceremony out on their floating patio off the reception hall that had just been built this past year. It’s a small patio that up until this point they’ve only used for guests to mingle on during their cocktail hour, but it was perfect for this chilly day and small wedding. Christen had to be indoors with her flute to be able to serenade the couple. The staff opened a few windows to the patio during their ceremony so they could hear her music and it worked out great! It still had an amazing view, but was also close enough to inside that the couple could duck back in to warm up quickly after their ceremony.
The venue set up a sweetheart table for Roy and May Ann to sit and share a champagne toast, cake cutting and first dance all of which we captured both with photography and on video for them while Christen played her flute. What a gorgeous day for an amazing couple!
