The Mountainside Wedding Ceremony of Your Dreams

Imagine the Colorado mountain wedding of your dreams, standing next to the one you love as you begin a new journey in life together while surrounded by the spectacular Rocky Mountains, your family, and friends.

Taharaa Mountain Lodge’s two ceremony sites have been designed to give you exactly what you most want for your outdoor wedding ceremony in Colorado: the experience of being on and surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.

Our Pergola site nestles your guests among aspens and boulders on our mountainside looking out on the peaks surrounding the Estes Valley. The paved sidewalk leading up the hill to the ceremony area creates a stunning “aisle” down which the bridal party process against a dramatic mountain backdrop.

Our covered Deck, which is adjacent to the Great Hall, provides a more sheltered ceremony site with sweeping views of the peaks of Twin Sisters and the Mummy Range.




Spectacular landscapes and breathtaking views make Taharaa Mountain Lodge the perfect location for a Colorado outdoor weddings.

Nestled in a clearing bordered by evergreens and aspens, your guests take in the mountain vistas and the sounds of gently rustling leaves and sweetly singing birds. As you process up the hillside along the paved sidewalk, celebratory music floats on the breeze, accompanying you onto the raised Pergola. Under the expansive Colorado sky, your vows wing their way to the eager ears of your guests through speakers in front of and behind the seating area. Set amidst the majesty of the Rocky Mountains, how could you or your guests soon forget this day?
