The Mountains are Calling

Kristen and Chase celebrated a richly detailed wedding day at Della Terra. Their wedding features luxe design, exquisite florals, and endless mountain views.

Lovebirds Kristen and Chase hail from Chicago, but vacation frequently in the mountains of Colorado. The pair happened to visit Della Terra on a trip together early in their relationship. They walked the grounds, soaked up the beauty, and fell in love with the venue – years before being married there. It was incredibly special to hear their story about finding Della Terra right after finding each other!

Chase and Kristen’s guests traveled from all over the county to witness their marriage. (Seriously – Washington, Idaho, Florida, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, North Carolina, and California were all represented.) It was no surprise that so many friends and family came to celebrate the bride and groom. This wedding day was truly special and filled with love, support and adoration for one another.

Before the ceremony began, the ladies got ready in Della Terra’s bridal salon. Kristen’s Grandma Mimi was unable to attend the wedding. To keep her grandma with her on her wedding day, Kristen had Mimi’s wedding hankie sown into her wedding gown. She revealed the detail to her grandma on Face Time, a beautiful honor and moment to remember always.

Later, Kristen and Chase met one another for a first look in Rocky Mountain National Park. By the time the ceremony rolled around, many happy tears had already been shared.

This perfect July afternoon gave way to a heartfelt ceremony. In lieu of a traditional bridal party, Kristen and Chase graced the stage alone together with their officiant. After saying “I Do!” they signed their marriage license and exited the ceremony beneath a celebratory toss of rose petals and aspen leaves by their guests.

Later on, they wined, dined and danced the night away at a gorgeous reception fit for a Colorado Rocky Mountain King and Queen! Seriously, every detail of this wedding is elegant, richly embellished, and endlessly natural. Don’t take our word for it – their amazing photographer Valeria Heine captured every moment and detail beautifully below.

Kristen and Chase – your wedding was as dreamy as we’ve ever seen. You two are a perfect match on this journey of life. Congratulations!
