This is the perfect venue for a true winter wedding. The Little Nell features several different venues, one of the most popular being The Wedding Deck. From downtown Aspen, guests enjoy a gondola ride up to the deck where they can take in the views of the Elk Mountain Range, while sitting at an elevation of 11,212 feet. The hotel’s 92 guest rooms and 12 suites are all equipped with a fireplace and complimentary mini bar to keep the party going!

The St. Regis is synonymous with sophistication, luxury, and style. If this is the wedding you desire, then look no further. Have your ceremony in The Fountain Courtyard while gazing upon majestic mountains. Then, enjoy a royal reception in The St. Regis Ballroom, dancing below the sparkling chandeliers. Since the St. Regis is located at the base of the mountain, you and your guests will be within walking distance to downtown Aspen where you can indulge in the city’s dining and shopping scene.
T Lazy 7 Ranch

If you’re interested in more of a rustic, ranch-style wedding in the mountains, the T Lazy 7 Ranch is the place for you. Resting at the foot of Pyramid Peak, the “Meadow” is a sweet, (not-so) little outdoor ceremony and reception space perfect for taking in the raw and natural beauty that surrounds you. The log lodge on site creates a warm atmosphere amid the snowy summit with stone fireplaces and lots of cozy seating for you and your guests.
