Whether you're big into mountain sports, looking for a gorgeous mountaintop event space for a destination wedding, or you call Colorado home, it's hard to top the beauty and elegance of an Aspen wedding venue.

Aspen's natural beauty makes it near impossible to find a venue without breathtaking views, no matter the time of year. Because it snows in the winter and is hot in the summer months, you'll want to consider whether you want a white wedding (which, while gorgeous, always comes with a threat of weather-related flight delays) with skiing and fire pits, or a sunny affair featuring Colorado's famous wildflowers in the spring or summer. Fall foliage is show-stopping in Aspen, so you really can't go wrong.

Since Aspen has long been a destination for the rich and famous, there's no shortage of luxury hotels and five-star restaurants. It tends to be on the pricier side for travelers, which you also may want to consider if you plan on hosting a lot of out-of-town guests. Because Aspen proper is small (only about four square miles), there aren't a ton of venues, but those it does have are pretty spectacular. Here, we rounded up the best mountain wedding venues Aspen has to offer.

The Little Nell in Aspen, Colorado

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains and boasting stunning views of the Elk Mountain Range, The Little Nell has unbeatable views of Aspen. The venue is flexible, with the ability to accommodate as few as 20 guests or up to 500. Depending on your guest list, you can have your wedding party or entire guest list stay onsite, as The Little Nell has 92 guest rooms and suites. No matter your vision, The Little Nell can make it happen with its myriad onsite venues, including two outdoor venues, three indoor and three that can be indoor or outdoor. Mix and match to create the wedding of your dreams just 12 minutes from the Aspen Airport. On top of the ability to get creative with your special day at The Little Nell, the venue is Aspen's only Five-Star, Five-Diamond hotel. Its menu boasts locally sourced food their caterers can tailor to your customized menu, which their award-winning team of sommeliers will pair perfectly with delicious wines.

Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado

With stunning views of Aspen Mountain and convenient access to town, Hotel Jerome is a great venue to consider if you want to be in the heart of all Aspen has to offer. Home to Aspen's only above-ground ballroom which can host up to 300 people seated or 500 standing, Hotel Jerome is perfect for grand, elegant events—or, a more intimate event of 60 people seated in the Wheller Room.

Find your kind of venue

From barns to ballrooms, discover reception venues that feel like you.

Additionally, there are two terraces to choose from if you'd prefer to exchange vows outside. If staying in the same place for all of your wedding events sounds your speed, Hotel Jerome can accommodate your party from a rehearsal dinner in the Antler Bar to a farewell brunch. And consider adding a special event like a small wedding-day luncheon in the cozy and intimate library. Hotel Jerome, an Auberge resort, has 99 luxurious rooms and suites if your guests choose to stay onsite.

Viceroy Snowmass in Snowmass Village, Colorado

Just 10 miles from Aspen, Viceroy Snowmass offers dramatic mountain views and a breathtaking setting for up to 300 guests. If you opt for an outdoor wedding ceremony, you'll get to say your "I do"s among white Aspen trees with gorgeous foliage in the fall and lush greenery in the summer. You can choose to host dinner al fresco, or move inside to the ballroom or Toro Restaurant. Inside, sleek modern interiors feature large windows so you don't forget the beautiful scenery that surrounds you—even while dancing the night away. The venue makes planning easy with all services offered in-house, as well as day-of coordination. If yours is a destination wedding (or you just want to keep the festivities going all weekend long), you may also want to consider a room block at the Viceroy. Couples who have gotten married at the Viceroy rave about the event staff and the food.
