aspen Weddings & Groups
Aspen is the perfect destination for a celebration or social gathering to bring together family and friends. While this area is known as a gorgeous setting for two people to tie the knot, the Rocky Mountains have plenty of charm and amenities to satisfy group get-togethers of all shapes, sizes and styles.
Aspen may have earned its world-renown reputation as a wintertime playground, but since this area boasts 300 days of sunshine a year, we are now appreciated as a year-round destination. There is a season to fit every group’s agenda; which would you prefer? In the summer Aspen offers a lush landscape of green with rocky mountain peaks and crystal clear streams. Autumn’s palate includes warm golden and orange leaves and crisp evenings spent in front of a fireplace. Winter’s magical backdrop features pristine and sparkling fields of snow, and plenty of bright blue skies.
What kind of festivities will you plan?
An Aspen Wedding:
Make this special occasion your own, whether you want to get married in heels, tie the knot in hiking boots or get hitched in your shiniest pair of spurs. The ideal setting for your gathering — large or small — is available at a variety of venues that range from grand ballrooms to more intimate, historic spaces, contemporary chic spots and outdoor patios and meadows with dazzling scenery. So many components go into making your wedding or civil union special and seamless, and Aspen features a talented group of vendors to help make your big day look effortless. Many of them make their livings year-round here in the Roaring Fork Valley: florists with a keen eye toward style, musicians, accomplished caterers and well-connected event planners. And of course, we have a skilled pool of photographers to choose from, who live here in part because of the abundance of scenery!
Coming to Aspen as part of a group leaves the door open for a wide variety of adventures and experiences, to suit all types. What will inspire your group, and make for the most lasting memories? Aspen has a lot of history to share — from its formation of a silver mining boom town in the late 1800s to its founding as a ski resort by World War II veterans from the 10th Mountain Division. We are also a cultural hub in the Rockies, from events held at the Aspen Institute, the contemporary Aspen Art Museum in a new building downtown, the Aspen Music Festival and School, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet and much more. Aspen’s outdoor experiences speak for themselves, and include plenty of group activities like summertime rafting and guided hikes, winter snowshoeing tours and ski lessons, and fall jeep tours rambling through a canopy of golden leaves. And of course, Aspen’s dining, shopping and vibrant nightlife will keep your group entertained at all hours!
