Jeff and Dijana’s intimate wedding in Estes Park was a beautiful celebration of love. The couple met through mutual friends and quickly connected. Dijana is Croatian and was born in Bosnia, and moved to the US in the early 2000s. Coincidently, Jeff’s family is also from Croatia and they had a number of friends that had immigrated as well. They got engaged while on a trip to Zion National Park in Utah. The couple loves to hike and be outdoors, so they love visiting National Parks. It was New Year’s Eve, and Jeff proposed outside under the stars with the valley and mountains surrounding them!

Intimate Wedding in Estes Park

For their wedding day, they knew they wanted to get married in the mountains, to showcase their love of nature. Rocky Mountain and Estes Park was the perfect location to combine their love of the mountains, outdoors and the National Parks! Choosing Taharaa Mountain lodge was easy, because of the beautiful views the space offered. It gave their guests an incredible weekend, and the gorgeous timber design and construction were just a bonus!

Before the reception, they wanted to get some of their portraits done at Bear Lake, which is a 30-minute drive from the Lodge. There are so many incredible parks close by, from Rocky Mountain National Park (which you can see from our Lodge!) to Lily Lake. All are just a quick drive away!  The couple didn’t mind the misty rain, and even embraced as they cuddled up for portraits at Bear Lake! After portraits, they enjoyed their reception with their family and friends, and danced the night away.
