TRAVEL DETAILS

to Estes Park, Colorado

AIR TRAVEL

DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (DEN)

Denver International Airport is the nearest airport to the venue. Once you arrive at DEN, the drive times are as follows:
- Downtown Denver (30 mins)
- Boulder (45 mins)
- Estes Park (1 hr 30 mins)

Via Rental Car:
Toll Road Route: Take I470 north to I25 north. License plate tolling is in effect. If you're driving a rental car, make sure you've made arrangements for tolls so that you aren't charged extra by the rental company.

Non-Toll Road route: Leaving the airport, take Tower Road north to 104th, then west on 104th to I25 North. Go north on I25 to Colorado 66, west on 66 to Lyons, and continue west on US36 to Estes Park.

Drivers coming from Denver may choose to take US36 through Boulder to Estes rather than the I25 route above as it is more picturesque.

ACCOMMODATIONS

BLACK CANYON INN

There is lodging directly on-site at our venue, with hotel-style suites and multiple-bedroom condominiums. This will be where the wedding party and family will be staying, although you are of course able to book alternate accommodation. Black Canyon Inn provides a variety of lodge and condo-type accommodations within walking distance of all events throughout the weekend. We would highly recommend The Black Canyon Inn for ease of access!

PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to have a room block for the weekend, so accommodations are only available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

ACCOMMODATIONS

BEST WESTERN PLUS SADDLE INN

1260 Big Thompson Ave, Estes Park, CO 80517

Only 2 miles and a 5-minute drive from the wedding venue, the Best Western Saddle Inn is a wonderful, more cost-conscious lodging option!

We have organized a shuttle to and from the wedding venue on Saturday evening to make travel easier for the celebrations.

WEDDING NIGHT TRANSPORTATION

SHUTTLE SERVICE TO THE VENUE

We are delighted to offer complimentary trolley shuttle services all evening of the wedding, ensuring convenient and safe transportation to and from the wedding venue and the Best Western for our guests.

QUESTIONS

ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED AT THE WEDDING?

We love kids and are so excited to include the children of family members in our special day! However, we kindly ask that ANY babies under the age of three not attend the ceremony (regardless of family or wedding party). If you are family or in the wedding party, children of any age are welcome at the reception, but please be sure to include them in your RSVP. If you are not family and have children, we hope you can understand that we will be limiting the invitation to children of family only.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Our dress code is 'Black Tie Optional'. For more information, please see a description from Martha Stewart below:

"Sticking to black tie is the safest option at a black-tie optional event, but if you'd rather dress a bit more casually, you can. "I think the rules of formality have changed over the past generation, and now there's flexibility and room to play, even with the more formal dress codes," says Gabrielle Hurwitz, a bridal stylist. "Whereas before, black tie or white tie typically meant women wore gowns in more muted colors, now there's freedom to play with color and print. For black-tie and black-tie optional events, men can wear printed or colored dinner jackets and be a little more creative with their fashion, too."

At a black-tie optional event, men can wear a dark suit instead of a tuxedo and a conservative tie instead of a bow tie, while "a chic cocktail dress" or dressy separates are appropriate for women, says Corry."

IS THE WEDDING INDOORS OR OUTDOORS?

Both! The ceremony will be indoors, and then we will have a cocktail hour on the patio of The Boulders before proceeding inside for dinner and lots of dancing! Please note: in the case of inclement weather the cocktail hour will move indoors.

WILL THERE BE PARKING OPTIONS AVAILABLE?

Yes, however, there is very limited parking available at the venue, so if possible, we ask you to utilize the complimentary trolley shuttle service we have organized from the Best Western Saddle Inn.

CAN I TAKE PICTURES DURING THE CEREMONY?

We ask that you please turn off your cell phones & cameras during the ceremony. Don't worry; we have hired photographers and videographers and will have plenty of content to share after the wedding!

WILL THERE BE GLUTEN FREE/DAIRY FREE/VEGETARIAN OPTIONS?

Yes! The chef will be preparing a variety of options to meet everyone's dietary needs. Please select one or more of these options when you RSVP, and our chef will prepare a delicious alternative meal that suits your requirements.
