Destination Dream Come True

Grooms Dan and Danny had a supremely joyful and elegant summer wedding. Their heartfelt outdoor ceremony was followed by a lively reception, with gorgeous greenery, National Park details, and guests dancing the night away.

We remember the first time we spoke with Dan and Danny. These sophisticated grooms were from Chicago and had fallen in love with the idea of a dream wedding in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Like many other destination wedding couples, they wondered how they’d be able to pull off a perfect wedding when planning from afar. We chatted by phone first, then later gave them a virtual tour on FaceTime. They booked Della Terra before having seen it in real life, so we were thrilled when they arrived from Chicago a few months later for their first in-person tour! From there, the real planning began. We put them in the capable hands of our familiar faces vendors, who beautifully executed the vision these grooms had for their wedding day.

Dan and Danny’s celebration was exceptional and elegant, and they brought a party of nearly 200 family and friends to experience the day with them. We can’t believe how amazing it all turned out! It was a destination wedding dream come true. From first guests arriving, to the very last dance, abundant love, sophistication, and celebration surrounded this day.

As you browse their stunning photo gallery by Bertarelli Photography, be sure to take note of some things we LOVED about Dan and Danny’s special day.

  • Pure Joy: Dan and Danny exuded joy on their wedding day. We loved how much they laughed and smiled together. Their tender embraces and overwhelming happiness made for sentimental moments that were captured beautifully in the gallery below. The joy was contagious, with each and every guest as happy as the two grooms every minute of the day!
  • Attire: Dan and Danny opted for bow ties in the wedding day attire for themselves and their groomsmen. Groomsmen donned grey suits and checkered blue bow ties. Groomswomen wore elegant grey gowns. Lastly, the grooms opted to stand out in darker charcoal suits with gold bow ties.
  • National Park Theme: Della Terra borders Rocky Mountain National Park, and these grooms love to experience these special protected lands. To bring a bit of nature and personality into the reception decor, Dan and Danny named tables after their favorite national parks. Guests found their way to their seats using a custom-made map of the United States.
  • Elegant Summer Greenery: Dan and Danny opted for a subtle yet powerful decor element, which was to include accents of summer greenery throughout the wedding. The ceremony stage featured gorgeous bright greenery draping across the front beam of the Tuscan pergola. Inside the reception, tables were set with white flowers and a variety of greenery incorporated in with modern wood boxes and romantic candlelit settings.

We can’t say enough about this sophisticated, heartfelt and celebratory wedding. Congratulations Dan and Danny!
