Planning Your Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding

There are several steps to consider as you start planning your wedding. The venue is by far the most important decision of your wedding planning journey. It will have a massive impact on every other aspect of your wedding.

For instance, the size of the venue will determine how many guests you can invite. The venue’s availability will determine your wedding date. The venue’s features will affect your wedding theme, including the color scheme and floral choices!

#1 – Your Ceremony At The Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding Venue

The Della Terra Mountain Chateau wedding venue is an exclusive boutique lodge. It is available for weddings throughout the year and offers two wedding ceremony options for you to choose from. You could opt for The Devotion Place, which is the venue’s gorgeous outdoor ceremony site. Or you could say, “I do,” indoors in The Celebration Place.

The Devotion Place is a BEAUTIFUL outdoor wedding ceremony location at the Della Terra Mountain Chateau wedding venue overlooking MacGregor Mountain. It features a gorgeous bridge walkway, a raised brick stage, a stunning wooden vineyard trellis, and a terraced seating area.

Wedding ceremonies that take place in The Devotion Place during the winter season are HIGHLY popular for bridal couples. This is because of the beautiful snowy mountaintop backdrops. Although it may be chilly outside, the ceremony area is kept warm with ample outdoor heaters.

#2 – Your Wedding Reception

The Celebration Place can be used as an indoor wedding ceremony space for those that are looking to escape the cooler weather or as a beautiful rain plan option. It’s also used for the main wedding reception.

This airy and bright space can accommodate up to 200 guests and offers several unique features. This includes a high-vaulted ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and two grand fireplaces. 

#3 – Accommodations

If you’re hoping to escape to the mountains for a destination wedding weekend and looking for somewhere unique and luxurious, you get it in abundance at this venue. There are 14 luxury suites in the chateau. Each of the beautifully decorated suites offer several awesome features. This includes see-through fireplaces, private balconies with views of the surrounding landscape and mountains, romantic water features, soaking tubs, sitting nooks, arched windows, hot tubs, and walk-through jetted showers.

Bridal couples, or should I say wedding photographers are spoiled for choice when it comes to capturing couples’ shots after a Della Terra Mountain Chateau wedding.
