Why Estes Park is a top Colorado wedding destination

Estes Park is one of the top destinations in Colorado for wedding photography, and arguably so. It’s incredibly picturesque scenery contains massive mountain ranges, dense pine forests, and seemingly endless mountain lakes.

Estes Park is known for their many wedding venues too. From mountain lodge weddings to an elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park. The lodging, shopping, and outdoor activities here are seemingly endless.

When you get married in a place like this, it’s almost a guarantee your going to capture some great photos.

For this couple, their family cabin is one of their favorite destinations to escape to. It’s a charming cabin in the woods with mountain views and frequent wildlife visits.

I remember while we were exploring the mountain property, Danielle stopped to point out a little wooden bridge she helped build as a kid. I captured a photo of her walking across the bridge in her wedding dress and heels.

Rocky Mountain National Park wedding portraits

During the planning process, I shared some of the best photo spots in Rocky Mountain National Park with them. They chose their favorite locations and we planned to road trip from spot to spot, soaking in a variety of views.

We visited Sprague Lake first, then 3M Curve, before wrapping up the evening on top of Trail Ridge Road. It was the perfect combination of locations that gave them a little bit of every scenery type in their photos.

And the best part? They didn’t have to hike miles and miles, it just looks like they did. 😉

The view from 3M Curve is one you could never get tired of.

3M Curve (also a wedding site in Rocky Mountain National Park), offers sweeping views of Upper Beaver Meadows and epic mountain peaks. You even get beautiful views of Longs Peak from here!

Trail Ridge Road wedding photos

Along the drive up to Trail Ridge Road, I showed these two my favorite photo spots for aspen trees! It was the perfect place to wander before heading up to Trail Ridge Road for sunset photos.
