    Wow just wow

    BLEW ME AWAY!!! We have been to Estes a # of times but never to the EP resort so we did this blind. The ceremony was at the gazebo with a mountain backdrop and the reception was at the pavilion. Everything was beautiful but what really made is special were the beautiful people who will always be a part of our special day. Cindy, the event coordinator was funny, down to earth and cool as a cucumber. Even her staff, Kyle and Tony were great guys that made everything easy. Andy (Dunraven) and Karen (GM of resort) are not to be forgotten. Thank you all for everything. Food was delicious. I had no tasting so I was going in blind and was blown away!!! You guys will always be in the memories ( and some photos) of our special day.

    Best Venue!!

    We couldn't be happier that we had our wedding here! The entire staff is absolutely wonderful!!! Their attention to detail and desire to go above and beyond for everyone is unmatched. Jessica A. is so amazing, we loved getting to meet and work with her. She will make sure everything goes exactly how you want it to, and she will do it with the biggest, friendliest smile on her face! Not to mention, the views for our wedding were stunning. Also, the food at our reception was delicious. All of our guests comments on how great everything was. We had the salmon and steak as options with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. There wasn't one complaint. In fact, some guests are trying to recreate the salmon, lol! If you are looking for a beautiful venue with staff that will do everything they can to make your day perfect, absolutely get married here! Thank you to everyone here for making our day so perfect!

    Impressed!!!

    I had my rehearsal dinner here for my winter wedding on a Friday evening. Kaleigh and her team did amazing!!! They went above and beyond. I had more guests than anticipated and they adjusted to that easily. I also was on a budget and worried about not having enough decoration. Kaleigh and her team stepped in and decorated, fixed my photos and setup the room for us which helped ease my stress. The food was delicious. My guests were happy and we were happy!!! As long as you have Kaleigh as your contact you are in great hands. Thank you for a dream wedding weekend!!!
