To host a SkyView wedding at Fall River Village in Estes Park would be a dream! This stunning wedding venue just minutes from the Fall River Entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park boasts views from not one, but two different view decks! This wedding venue is great not only for it’s epic views, but for the lodging options it can provide for all of your guests. Estes Park is a heavily sought after wedding destination town, as it provides everything out-of-towners would love to experience from a true Colorado visit.
SkyView is the event building at the Fall River Village. The resort has many different cabins and condo options for guests to choose from. With hot tubs and fire pits, everyone can stay close together, and within walking distance of the venue itself. The quaint town of Estes Park also provides a plethora of fun activities for guests to partake in, including breweries, hiking, souvenir shops, and much more! Rocky Mountain National Park is a 15 minute drive away and is one of the most beautiful parks in the entire country. It is almost guaranteed that you will spot some elk, or other wildlife such as moose, fox, big horn sheep, and much more!

The capacity for weddings at SkyView is up to 150 guests. With the multiple levels at the SkyView wedding venue, most couples choose to have their ceremony on the upper deck which is half covered and half exposed, but all open air. The views overlooking this deck are outstanding! You can see snow covered mountains in the distance as you say I do. On the same upper level is an open air bar set up that most couples use for cocktail hour.
For reception, couples usually come downstairs one level for an indoor dinner service and dancing. There is also a deck on this level as well with equally stunning views.
For portraits, a lot of couples try to set aside about 2 hours before their ceremony to drive into Rocky Mountain National Park for portraits! As a photographer, I think this is a GREAT idea! A fair warning though, I only recommend going into the park with the couple, and leaving the bridal party and family members behind. Since the park can get crowded, it’s best if less people go off-site for portraits (and less hassle!). Luckily, the deck and venue grounds at Skyview are gorgeous, and you can take your wedding party photos on site there.
After photographing a wedding at this venue, I can vouch for them and say that their staff was so delightful and made everything seem easy and fun! I’d love to photograph another event here!
