Estes Park Wedding Photographers | YMCA of the Rockies Overlook Chapel Wedding

If you’re planning a wedding at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, you’ll enjoy this post!

Roxanne and Steve got married at YMCA of the Rockies, which is a venue in Estes Park with stunning grounds and breathtaking views. It was a gorgeous day and even the rain didn’t dampen the day!

The ceremony was a beautiful service held at the Overlook Chapel. During the ceremony their officiant shared how Steve & Roxanne met and various stories about them. It was so meaningful.

They decorated the area with minimal rustic decor, which I loved. The reception was held at an outdoor tent at Ridgeline Hotel – I love shooting weddings at YMCA of the Rockies Overlook Chapel because you can totally personalize it. Weddings at YMCA of the Rockies are amazing, because the surroundings are so gorgeous.

Why YMCA of the Rockies is a great place to get married

YMCA of the Rockies is perfect for weddings on a budget, and is one of the loveliest places to get married in Estes Park. The venue offers onsite bedrooms so guests don’t have to leave early – and there are so many beautiful spots that are perfect for photos.

Even though Steve and Roxanne’s wedding day called for rain, Roxanne was calm and collected while getting ready for her big day at the Ridgeline Hotel in Estes Park. The chances were so high that the ceremony was changed to half an hour earlier than scheduled. Coincidentally just a few clouds filled the sky during their vows. The ceremony was held at the Overlook Chapel; a remote location at the YMCA of the Rockies that offers amazing looks but not a lot of privacy for a couple getting ready for their first look. Separated by just a few trees, the guests cheered on as Steve and Roxanne saw each other for the first time. It was a joyous and unique moment. Their ceremony started out beautifully, complete with a bagpiper to honor Steve's ancestral roots. After the couple exchanged vows, we went to Rocky Mountain National Park for a few photos and the reception followed back at the Ridgeline Hotel. Despite the initial weather worries, everything about this day was beautiful; the location, the weather, the couple. Definitely a wedding no one will forget! Congratulations, Steve and Roxanne!
