SkyView at Fall River Village

SkyView offers a modern rooftop ceremony with a stunning backdrop of nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. We think the best part about this outdoor venue is that rain is not a factor, thanks to their open-air roof canopy. Enjoy cocktail hour on the beautiful wrap-around deck, never sacrificing the views. Keep in mind the views here really steal the spotlight. More info here.

YMCA of the Rockies

This is not your average YMCA. This property screams weekend-long fun for you and your wedding guests. This rustic site offers a variety of outdoor and indoor ceremony and reception sites as well as a range of lodging options from cabins to lodge rooms to even campsites! There is an option for all budgets. The YMCA is so much more than a wedding venue. For guests staying at the YMCA, you will be able to access dog-friendly hiking trails, fishing, miniature golf, rock climbing and more iconic Estes Park activities all weekend long.

Rocky Mountain National Park

Imagine giving Longs Peak a front-row seat to your vows! Convinced? There are 12 intimate ceremony sites within the national park and each has a different capacity, the most being 30 guests. Sprague Lake and Lily Lake have beautiful wooden docks creating a natural altar for you and your partner. 3M curve (photographed below) is easy to get to and also gives the most privacy out of all the ceremony locations. And since all 12 of these are rugged locations, the biggest rules to follow are those of leave no trace, especially the one about packing out what you pack in (confetti is impossible to pack out).
