    My Dream Elopement

    Let me start off by saying that 2020 was the worst year to plan an elopement/wedding., Shannon Faith was amazing at helping me through this! She was always very prompt at emailing me back and answering my questions. We were supposed to get married outside The Stanley, but we changed it the day before to the Billiard Pinon Room. Shannon walked me through me all of the available rooms/spaces and went above and beyond to make what I wanted happen. We were treated like royalty during our stay. Everything was absolutely perfect and I’m so glad we chose this venue. If you want to get married in a place of amazing history surrounded by incredible views, look no further!

    elopement at the Stanley

    We self officiated with a photographer so we didn't use their services but stayed for our honeymoon and it was great. We had a few small issues with the hotel but nothing worth noting for a 100+ year old hotel

    Father of the Bride

    The first and one of the best decisions I made during the wedding process. The staff was absolutely terrific. The sales staff was pleasant to work with. These people are very busy. Once the sales staff was finished I worked with a young lady, Amanda Rachocki, who is worthy of distinction. Amanda is the Wedding and Catering Sales Manager. Without fail Amanda always got back to me. She never overpmomised and always and I mean always delivered. You need to understand that this facility might have 5 weddings during any given weekend and as such you need to realize that if you call on a Friday, six months before your wedding, it is quite possible and even probable that it might be early the following week before you get a response. However, Amanda will get back to you. Now if it is near your date you will be well provided for. On a couple of occasions Amanda met with me on site and at least one time she met me on her day off. She was in charge and always responsible, professional, courteous and did everything to make the wedding a success. We had the McGregor Room and a band for the rehearsal/welcome party on a Friday night. Long Peak Lawn for the wedding ceremony, Wonderview Terrace for the post ceremony cocktail party and the Concert Hall with a great band (The Radio Band from Denver) and plated meal for the reception. The food was exceptional (Our guests still rave about the lamb chop appetizers). The food and bar prices were very fair, worth every penny. Amanda and her staff were Incredible to work with during the wedding weekend. They worked well with the band and day of planner. Alex in the group reservations department also was super to work with. She saved the day on several occasions. I can’t stress how nice it was to have all of the activities on the Hotel property. Our guest stayed in a full range of accommodations from 5 bedroom condos to the Lodge, Aspire and the Hotel proper.. I was very pleased with the Presidentiial Cottage with the 5 bedrooms overlooking the wedding venue and it was perfect for the bridal party to get ready. Overall it was a very good experience and I would highly recommend the Stanley Hotel.

The Stanley Hotel is one of my favorite wedding venues, not just in Estes Park, but in all of Colorado. Though just a short walk from the hotel, their Longs Peak Lawn (my favorite of their ceremony sites) feels secluded and boasts a magnificent mountain view. The staff are incredible and the setting is divine. If you choose to get married at the Stanley, your wedding will be spectacular!

The Stanley Hotel is by far, one of the best wedding and reception venues in Estes Park. The team at the Stanley are some of the nicest and most accommodating. It is always a pleasure to work with them. I have never had a bad experience when working at The Stanley Hotel and would highly recommend them for your wedding and reception.

The Perfect Portrait The Perfect Portrait Wedding Photographers

After shooting 100's of weddings at the Stanley , we had decided to only shoot weddings of 30 guests and under. We love elopements What I want to say is that no matter if the wedding is 250 people or just 6 people, everyone is treated as if they were the only wedding in the world by the Stanley. I am honored to endorse The Stanley Hotel Randy and melanie Humphrey. ( theperfectportrait.net) the Perfect Portrait
