Della Terra Mountain Chateau Wedding {Colorado Wedding Photographer}

Settled back in the thick trees of the rocky mountains sits the exquisite and most romantic place in Colorado. There’s breathtaking views, serene privacy, and the chateau itself is incredible! I worked with Pilar’s family several years ago for one of their daughter’s senior portraits and when they contacted me for their other daughter’s wedding at Della Terra I was just thrilled!! One because I truly cherish repeat clients, and two because Della Terra is one of my most favorite places to be. It’s a place that gives that romantic fairy tale wedding a girl always dreams about.:)

Chance & Miranda it’s always such a pleasure working with you and your family!!! I am so excited to see what all unfolds for you guys next and I wish you all the happiness of 100 lifetimes!

Here are some of my favorites, enjoy your story!
