Everything You Need for Your Aspen, Colorado Destination Wedding
With so many moving parts, planning a wedding can be a huge undertaking but once you pull it off, it will undoubtedly be one of the most special days of your life. If you’re newly engaged and have started to plan your wedding, we think that there is no better place to get married than in Aspen, Colorado. If you’re from out of town, Aspen is also the perfect location to have a destination wedding, thanks to the historic downtown area and the iconic Rocky Mountains which provide happy couples with a truly beautiful, one-of-a-kind setting.
No matter when you set your date, Aspen never fails to impress. In the summer, the area is covered in lush foliage and wildflowers in full bloom; the fall season always puts on an impressive color show and winter presents a magical, snowy wonderland. So much more than your average mountain town, Aspen is both rustic and refined; appealing to a variety of different visions couples may have for their big day.
We have put together a list of useful information to help you plan your dream wedding in Aspen:
Local Wedding Planners
Consider working with a local wedding planner, especially if you are from out of town. An Aspen planner can help facilitate the logistics of guests traveling to and from town and deal with other details including things like catering, photographer and accommodations to ensure your day goes off without a hitch.
With so many wedding venues available, it’s important to do your research. From mountain resorts to downtown clubs and museums, Aspen has it all. Venues can accommodate a range of budgets but for those looking for a more luxurious, higher-end option, Hotel Jerome is the wedding venue for you. They even offer a wedding package if you are working with a tight budget, which includes a photographer, officiant, flowers, cake and a Champagne toast. Another popular wedding venue is the Aspen Mountain Wedding Deck. The venue offers sweeping views of the surrounding mountains at an elevation of 11,212 feet. Follow your ceremony with a one-of-a-kind reception at either the adjacent Sundeck or Aspen Mountain Club. Other notable venues include the Aspen Historical Society, Aspen Chapel, Lynn Britt Cabin, T-Lazy-7 Ranch, Maroon Bells and more. To make sure you are aware of any COVID protocol requirements, please be sure and contact your chosen venue.
If you are having a destination wedding in Aspen, you have a few options when it comes to hiring a photographer. You can either work with a photographer from your area or work with an Aspen photographer.
