Drawing inspiration from the staggering, snow-covered mountain ranges and the rolling meadows of wildflowers, Aspen may be known as a winter destination and ski town, but the year-round opportunities are endless. 

For the brides planning an Aspen, Colorado, wedding the main considerations are the season and the number of guests you’d like in attendance. As an Aspen wedding photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings all over the state of Colorado, but Aspen weddings hold a special place in my heart. The history of the town and the luxury of the environment provide the perfect escape from the ordinary.  As you start planning your Aspen wedding, I’ve put together a guide for the Top 7 Aspen Colorado Wedding Venues to help break down the options and shed some light on the beauty of the area.
