Ciao, Rocky Mountain readers! It’s summertime which means it’s officially time to picture yourself with an Aperol Spritz in hand listening to a string quartet in the sunshine. That may sound like a vacation in Italy, but really it’s your future dream wedding at a Tuscan-style wedding venue right here in the Rockies! With recent European-style wedding inspo from brides like Indy Blue & Sofia Richie, plan a Lake Como ceremony *dupe* at one of these 9 venues with villa & vineyard vibes.
A local favorite of ours at Rocky Mountain Bride is Villa Parker – a Mediterranean estate just south of Denver with vibrant gardens, endless archways, and courtyards with mountain views. Transport your guests to Sicily in the Colorado countryside!

What could be more Italian than getting married in a vineyard?! La Caille Vineyard & Winery is a picturesque 22 acre oasis of a property in the middle of Utah surrounded by the Wasatch Mountains. Host an entire wedding weekend getaway here for up to 500 guests!

Located conveniently close to Boulder, Burning Sky Farm houses a large stone building with romantic light-bringing windows and 16 foot high ceilings. The property has a balcony, a private dock, and two ponds where you can enjoy the sunset as if you were in Italy by the sea.
Weddings at the Villa is a gorgeous Tuscan villa set in the foothills of Utah’s Rocky Mountains. To enhance the Italian vibe, the property also has acres of lush lawn, a hundred twinkle-lit pear trees to dine under, 2 gazebos, and an outdoor dance floor for your dreamy evening.
Host your wedding at The Pinery – a 22,000 square foot Tuscan-inspired mansion (yes, you read that right) surrounded by sweeping views of southern Colorado. The venue is elegant, timeless, and *molto bello*!
The Zion Red Rock Villa estate has a twist of a modern Mediterranean style with a splash of the western feel of Zion. The luxury mansion has everything you need for a destination wedding – including lodging for up to 58 guests for the ultimate European-style wedding weekend.
As featured on our blog, Sutcliffe Vineyards is another great vineyard option with the Italian feel. The vineyard was planted 30 years ago in the Southwest Colorado desert and is now flourishing for your luscious & green destination wedding here in the states.

La Casa Mirador sits on a Canadian hillside with sweeping views of Lake Okanagan. The photos speak for themselves – just head north for a charming dinner party on the water right here in the Rockies instead of flying to Lake Como!
For an idyllic micro-wedding option, God’s Mountain Estate can host intimate weddings for up to 45 guests. Enjoy this beautiful, European-style Bed and Breakfast and its breathtaking views of Skaha Lake and Okanagan Vineyards with your VIPs for your wedding weekend.
Salute, Rocky Mountain Brides! Grab a glass and cheers with your crew – you won’t need your passport to do so! Looking for more venue inspiration? Check out our Vendor Collective for a complete list of our very favorite venues in the Rocky Mountains. Grazi!
