We are so blessed to live and work in the State of Colorado. With so many epic mountain wedding venues with amazing views, it is no wonder that Colorado has become one of the premier wedding destinations. Alison & Bryan’s wedding venue was no exception as they tied the knot at The World-Famous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado.
For those not familiar with The Stanley, it is the hotel that inspired Stephen King to write the novel, turned Hollywood blockbuster, “The Shining”. A one night stay was enough to inspire the author to write one of his most famous masterpieces, that is still highly regarded to this day. With it only being a little over an hour from Denver, it’s a picture perfect venue for those seeking a classic Colorado mountain wedding.
True to traditional Colorado, the weather was great with barely any clouds in the sky. We loved the delicate touches of the pink flowers that seem to fit in perfectly with the rest of the landscape and complimented the black bridesmaids dresses very nicely. Alison & Bryan had their ceremony outside in the garden area which showcased the splendor of the Rocky Mountains in the background. After their ceremony they enjoyed a couple of cold beers with the rest of their bridal party. During their reception they enjoyed some amazing cupcakes from You Need Pie, a local bakery in Estes Park and then danced the night away while A Music Plus Entertainment played their favorite songs. Alison & Bryan definitely know how to throw a party and have a good time.
