Estes Park wedding venue

Featuring the Dao House and Elkhorn Stables

The Dao House is an outdoor wedding venue in Colorado located just outside of Estes Park, Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park. Their property is vast and private. It’s surrounded by jagged mountains, like 14,000+ foot Longs Peak, and amazing aspen groves. It’s open year-round, and has a wonderful horseback riding stable right on site! Elkhorn Stables has extremely talented wranglers who can even guide you by horseback up a mountain to a remote ceremony location.

Just imagine horseback riding until you find the perfect spot in the wilderness to say “I do”. How awesome would that be?

Pro Tip: Reserve a private ride!

The Dao house is an Estes Park venue option for those looking to invite guests along too. This wedding venue can accommodate 2-125 people! They even offer a lovely designated wedding site. It has rows of wooden seats for guests and is accessible by vehicle, horse, or foot. This ceremony spot offers incredible views of Longs Peak, an aspen grove, and small meadow. A STUNNING spot for photos. There’s a great array wildflowers there in the summer too! We saw plenty of Columbines there in July, our state flower.

The aspen trees are incredibly beautiful in this area during Autumn as well! Though it can vary every year, we tend to see Fall foliage in Estes Park between mid-late September. Even if you miss the Fall foliage, there are plenty of green pine trees in the area to add color to your photos. Honestly, the scenery is something to behold all year long.

And hey! If you’re looking for a photographer who will come along for the ride, you’re just where you need to be. I’m an Estes Park local and here to help you create a unique (and photogenic) wedding day.
