There is an air of luxury that fills this small Rocky Mountain town and you can almost see it from street corner to mountaintop. For a destination bride, you will likely not find another locale which embodies beauty, elegance and luxury in the same way as Aspen. 

A romantically small community with surprisingly large opportunities, your list will be short to find another destination that is as used to entertaining the rich and famous as Aspen. With snow well into April, miles of Aspen groves for hiking, water for rafting or fishing and endless mountains for climbing, consider Aspen your bridal playground with countless options and non-stop luxury to build your own experience.

Places to say “I Do”

St. Regis Aspen Resort – At the base of Aspen’s signature slopes, you won’t get a better mountainside location, right in the middle of town.

Pine Creek Cookhouse – Overlooking some of the most breathtaking and untouched landscape in the surrounding mountains of Aspen. 

Sundeck at Aspen Mountain – Located, by gondola ride, at the top of Aspen Mountain, only the bride will measure up to this view.

Theater Aspen – In the heart of Rio Grand Park and located right in town, this venue is surrounded by trickling streams, blooming gardens and endless Aspen trees.

Unforgettable Reception Ideas

Caribou Club – An exclusive members-only eatery and bar that allows private functions such as welcome, rehearsal or reception dinners. 

St. Regis Aspen Resort – Providing the single largest event space in all of downtown Aspen and home to Chefs Club by FOOD & WINE, your palate will more than agree.

Pine Creek Cookhouse – There are no roads in, so a horse-drawn wagon is an exciting experience for all of your guests. The food is gourmet and less “cookhouse,” but entirely delicious. 

The Aspen Historical Society – Offering three unique properties;  Wheeler/Stallard Museum is a Victorian-Era residential-style property, Holden Barn located outside of town and the rumored 1880s ghost town of Ashcroft.

Endless Activities

–        Ski any of the four world-class mountains.

–        Water sports such as Kayak, rafting, and fishing.

–        Miles of trailhead for hiking and biking.

–        Picturesque views with a breathless gondola ride to the top of Aspen Mountain.

–        Aspen has some of the best shopping in the world.

–        Host an old fashioned cookout, complete with chuck wagon, firepit and s’mores by the creek at T-Lazy-7 Ranch.
