Villa Parker is definitely in my top 5 (non-mountain) Colorado wedding venues, it’s a must-see when looking for Colorado wedding venues. You’ll quickly see why when you take a look at this Villa Parker wedding gallery. Let’s chat about why it’s such a must-see Colorado wedding venue and get a little inspiration from a real wedding gallery!
Villa Parker is a gorgeous Colorado wedding venue just south of Denver. They host any kind of special occasion, and intimate or large wedding. What makes Villa Parker unique is it’s Mediterranean-style. You’re transported to a villa in Europe the instant you step inside. From beautiful archways and dark wood accents, to Spanish tiles and a terracotta roof, with stunning views around every turn, this venue will transport you to a European villa without ever leaving Colorado.
It’s a truly idyllic location for a wedding. While it has the European vibes, you can still expect the classic stunning views of the Rocky Mountains! They truly combine Tuscan charm and Rocky Mountain views perfectly. Villa Parker can accommodate up to 200 guests. They have a range of outdoor and indoor event spaces. The couple in this gallery chose to do their ceremony and reception in their outdoor space, and had their cocktail hour and dancing in the indoor space. Both were stunning and fit their needs perfectly!
They also have lots of photo opportunities all around the property. For the gallery below, we utilized the grounds to the fullest and took all the bride and groom portraits. One downside is that they don’t offer on site lodging. So you’ll need to have guests find a place to stay, but the staff here (and I) can definitely recommend the best places!
Their package prices vary from weekday to weekend and peak season to off season. No matter when you want to have your wedding, you can expect them to take care of you! Their packages include exclusive use of the venue. For 10-12 hours on the day of your wedding, you’ll be the only celebration on their grounds. So you’ll have plenty of time for set up and celebrate your love. They also include a day-of coordinator in their packages so if you don’t have an event planner, your day will be a little more stress free!
If you don’t have a planner or a photographer who knows vendors in the area, they can recommend tons of vendors they love. Including a list of caterers, videographers, floral designers, rental companies, hair and makeup stylists, officiants, and entertainment.
They have parking on site so although you can’t stay here, you don’t have to worry about driving. Your package also comes with one hour of ceremony rehearsal. They have onsite getting ready suites, which you’ll see in the gallery, so you and your lover can comfortably get ready on site and not have to worry about getting to the venue once you’re ready!
This may come as a surprise, but Villa Parker in located in Parker, CO! It’s about 30 minutes south east of Denver. It’s also close to the Denver International Airport so out of town guests can easily travel there or you can make an easy and quick getaway to your honeymoon. So if you want to stay close to the Denver area but want a more European + Mediterranean vibe for your wedding, check out this venue!
This venue prides itself on being “where Tuscan charm meets the Rockies”. If you’re looking for a Mediterranean estate near Denver, this is your dream venue! Between gorgeous terraces and elegant rooms, you really can’t go wrong with this venue.
The venue even boasts that, “This Mediterranean estate with its grand entrance and vibrant gardens warmly welcomes friends, family, and guests to share in any special occasion. Whether you’re indoors surrounded by endless archways and iron chandeliers or outside marrying your lover, your Villa Parker wedding will leave your guests with amazing memories for years to come.” Doesn’t that just sound so dreamy?
No matter what you’re looking for in a dream Colorado wedding, Villa Parker is definitely worth a consideration!
The vision for Jess + Anthony’s day was laid-back, intimate and family oriented. Their intimate wedding was just that! They were just excited to spend some time with their loved ones and celebrate their love. Jess + Anthony fell in love with the vibes of Villa Parker and that was one of the main reasons they chose this venue. They definitely leaned into the Mediterranean/European side of Villa Parker with some boho chic touches. Jess had always envisioned a romantic, garden wedding and their decor with Villa Parker vibes really delivered just that.
Jess + Anthony’s most important thing was to capture all the beautiful, candid moments with their family. They wanted to capture the details and the moments they had spent so long bringing to life. They have a beautiful little girl and we made it a priority to include her in as many photos as possible!
In their own words, “We really want pictures we can look back on with our families forever and capture everyone there. What is most important to us is documenting all the main parts of the day/night. So overall, a lot of beautiful candid shots.” This really spoke to me because I am always trying to capture those precious moments of your wedding day exactly how they are. Capturing the moments are so important to me because I want you to be able to look back in 30 years and feel that exact emotion just by looking that the picture.
Jess + Anthony claimed to not have done much “the traditional way”. Their life hasn’t been traditional so why should their wedding be? They had an intimate wedding at Villa Parker with their closest friends and family to celebrate their love without sticking to a traditional wedding. The whole day was truly a beautiful celebration of their love.
Speaking of “traditional”, they wanted to include their daughter in their first look (isn’t that the sweetest thing?). So I got to capture the MOST adorable first look ever. Their daughter, also named Clare, was the cutest seeing her parents together on their wedding day. Anthony tossed her in the air a few times and they all loved on each other while I snapped away capturing all that love and adorableness. Clare and Jess of course had to smell all the gorgeous flowers in the garden, as well. You got a little sneak of the cuteness above, but wait till you see more!
Without further ado, here is what you’ve been waiting… this beautifully romantic Villa Parker wedding!
