With unbelievable panoramic views of the Continental Divide and Longs Peak, SkyView at Fall River Village doesn’t disappoint for wedding photos. In the Fall you may see herds of elk walking by as you enjoy your cocktail on the rooftop patio.
SkyView has the best of both worlds, with a rustic look but modern amenities. The wrap-around viewing deck with covered rooftop will give you the wet/snow weather backup needed when planning a wedding in the mountains. The openness makes sure you can still see the view you paid to enjoy and get amazing wedding photos. The reception venue beneath the deck has lots of glass windows to ensure constant sight lines no matter where you sit. The venue provides the tables and chairs needed, so just choose your caterer and they will take care of the rest. There is an elevator for easy access to the ceremony floor, which is where you can have cocktail hour if weather is good. There are heaters all around to stay out even if it’s windy or cold. I have photographed an outdoor ceremony there in February.
The venue is exclusive for your wedding day, and the bride and groom will get a complimentary stay in their honeymoon suite the night of their event. The suite works well for photos and has a small private deck that can be used for some bridal portraits before the ceremony. Fall River Village can accommodate all your guests, with luxury mountain town homes and 60 riverside condos, all walking distance from downtown Estes Park. The area is yours for the taking when it comes to getting your wedding photography done, so no need to worry about going off site.
In this wedding photo taken in Estes Park, I captured the couple kissing just as the sun set behind the mountain, creating a romantic feel. I understand the light in the mountains, so know when and where to capture your photos to ensure you get the photos you were looking for.
