The Estes Park Center, bordered by Rocky Mountain National Park, provides both indoor and outdoor wedding sites that accommodate 4 to 480 people and are perfect for your mountain wedding.
We offer simple and romantic to scenic and rustic atmospheres. Our reception venues offer a wide range of options for your wedding day. Our dining facilities are designed to accommodate “sit down” seating for 35-500 guests.
Our chefs offer a wide range of catering options from an hors d’oeuvres reception to formal dinners to a traditional home-style BBQ fitting the Rocky Mountain local. See our selection of available menu options.
A great feature of the Estes Park Center is our guest lodging. We have a variety of hotel-style lodge rooms and large reunion cabins. Some of the things that bring guests back year after year are Rocky Mountain National Park as our back drop, the beautiful scenery, fun activities and friendly staff.

You have to get married at the Mountainside Lodge
Multiple people told us this was the best wedding they have ever attended. I can't recommend the *Mountainside Lodge* at the YMCA enough. This is the property at the very top of the hill with a huge lodge (sleeps ~35) and includes your outdoor ceremony and reception space all in one location. Lodging for our entire wedding party, ceremony space, and reception space for 4 days (Thurs afternoon to Sunday morning) cost $9,000. That is just THE ROOM in other venues in Estes Park on a Saturday. We all had so much fun hanging out at the Lodge together and really getting to spend time together. NO travel made the wedding day so much easier than having to load up cars or rent additional transportation. I walked right outside my dressing area and down to the aisle! A lot of folks are hung up on the only beer and wine deal. Your guests will not care and can enjoy anything else they'd like in their cabins. Do it. It is worth it. We also had a kickball game and ate in the dining hall the day before our wedding. I loved my time at the YMCA!Sent on 10/12/2019

My husband and I got married at the Sarah Smith Chapel. It was such an incredible and unique venue to have our ceremony at, it was so secluded with breathtaking scenery as the backdrop of our wedding. It was honestly everything I could have wanted and more. There is a parking lot right across from the chapel, so your guests can drive to the ceremony. The only issue we had is that it is a bit troublesome to get to if you don't know how to get to the chapel. There aren't any signs and the map is a bit confusing. We put up balloons the day of the wedding, and that helped some folks find the chapel, so I would recommend putting up signs and balloons directing your guests if they aren't familiar. Thank you for making my wedding dreams come true!! Our entire family wants to come back and stay at the park!Sent on 09/27/2018

We loved our wedding at the YMCA! We got SO many compliments from guests about the beauty of the ceremony at the Overlook Chapel, and everyone loved the reception and catering as well. The YMCA was responsive and easy to work with and made wedding planning a breeze! The food was delicious and there were plenty of options for dairy free and gluten free dietary restrictions. The staff was helpful and made sure the night went smoothly, and we even loved their officiant, Greg Bunton, who made our ceremony interesting, fun and beautiful. So many people stayed overnight in cabins or rooms and also utilized the other acirivites the YMCA had to offer. The YMCA was also so decently priced, for such a beautiful space, catering, officiant, rehearsal space, and cabins. It was perfect for our wedding and we couldn’t be happier!Sent on 05/26/2018
