Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding in Estes Park
november 11, 2018
Ohhh friends, are you guys in for a treat today! Josh and Londee’s Della Terra Mountain Chateau wedding in Estes Park at the end of June was beyond words – absolutely incredible, filled with so much love and joy, and the details are some of our favorites of all time. Everything from the rock candy favors to the geode agate inspiration for decor and their invitations, this wedding was just phenomenal. But, we weren’t surprised that it was so perfect, especially seeing how in love they were at their engagement session earlier this spring!
Set against the backdrops of endless evergreens and the Rocky Mountains, their outdoor wedding ceremony under Della Terra’s pergola was led by Josh’s grandpa. It’s become a bit of a family tradition for Grandpa Zink to officiate ceremonies, and it made it just that much extra special. Josh and Londee also incorporated the combining of a unity cross into their ceremony. But what made their ceremony even more incredible was the way they kept looking at each other – so full of light and joy, with tears in their eyes. Following their heartfelt ceremony, all of their guests lined the road and tossed lavender seeds at them – which, by the way, is totally better than doing a grand exit at the end of a reception. So much fun!
During their reception, they played the newlywed game with their shoes (so funny!) and Sounds of the Rockies did an unbelievable job keeping the dance floor full and everyone just had the best time!!
A special thanks to the amazing vendor team who came together to make Josh + Londee’s wedding so rad!
