I was so excited when I found out I had the chance to shoot a Della Terra Wedding. This venue is the perfect setting for a mountain wedding and anything that allows me to get closer to nature is a win for me!
I was introduced to Amy and Erin by Chris Gentile Photography, a local photographer based here in Fort Collins, so I need to thank Chris for passing on this wedding to me and allowing me to shoot it for him.
Normally Estes Park is a quick drive for me up the canyon from Fort Collins, however with all of the recent flooding, Highway 34 was closed. With the Boulder route closed as well, I had no choice but to take the long drive around through Blackhawk. Finally after a few hours of driving, I reached Estes to photograph a beautiful Della Terra wedding .
The day started out photographing the women in the Ballo Della Luna room, also known as the moon room . It’s a beautiful luxury suite at the top of resort with gorgeous views of the mountains and fine furniture and amenities. The nice soft light that came through the windows made for some beautiful images.
Meanwhile, the guys had the chance to “kick it” in groom’s room, which consisted of a large projection monitor showing the football game, big, comfortable leather chairs and of course, beer! Even though they were having a blast, I managed to pull them out of heaven for a few minutes and get some fun shots with all the groomsmen.
For those who have been at Della Terra you’ll know that the ceremony site is absolutely spectacular. With views of tall trees and mountains in the background, even the most “indoorsy” person will appreciate the nature and serenity of this. As always, I took a journalist approach, being unobtrusive while making sure to capture all of the important and special moments and reactions.
Soon after, we had some fun taking photos of the lovely bride and groom, and then proceeded into the reception area of the resort. All of the details were carefully crafted and put together well and made a perfect addition to the mountain wedding setting. Dinner, dancing, cake cutting, and all of the fun moments from a wedding reception that you would expect took place during the night and everyone had a blast. I had such a fun time being a part of this wedding.
If you’re looking for a Della Terra wedding photographer, consider using me your guy! I’d love to be a part of your special day and photograph your important moments and details.
