The Landing at Estes Park Wedding
Wedding at The Landing at Estes ParkWedding Details:
The Landing at Estes Park is what we would call a medium sized wedding venue. Parker and Bailey had about 60 guests but it certainly could have hosted more. The women were mostly ready to go by the time we showed up. They have a small getting ready room. While it works I wonder what the cabins would offer. We were not signed up to get the guys getting ready so we did not get a good look.
We had a first look on site followed by some photos in the venue area. Lighting wise it was fairly limiting for the time of day but we made it work. The venue is not too far from Rocky Mountain National Park so it would have been ideal to take a 10 minute drive into the park. You can see a little bit of Longs Peak on site. There is also a lot of different angles you can take on the creek. The main thing is that you need to stay on the property. Some have crossed over it seems and that has caused strained neighbor relations. Having seen the way videographers do things I am not surprised.
The ceremony was one with some tears. We love capturing the real emotion of joyful tears. This is also something we love when it comes to cocktail hour and around dinner when we can get candids. On the ceremony exit they did their practiced dip kiss. We included a few other versions in different places. We figure if you practice your dip kiss why not give some scenery variety? The reception was fairly simple covering the standards. Not all weddings have extreme amounts of dancing. This was one of those where people soak in the mountain setting on the deck.
