After he proposed, my husband kept asking me to run away to Colorado with him; Aspen is one of the most beautiful places in the country he said. One day, sight unseen, I agreed, except we had to wait for our original date. So off I went plannin...
g a destination wedding from 1,300 miles away, without a wedding planner.
Aspen in general is expensive, we only had 25 guests, but with the Hotel Jerome we were able to give our guests a first class experience and stay close to the budget.
We were a small party, but Christine and the rest of the staff never made us feel that way.
It is SO important to feel comfortable with your vendors.
Christine was a great communicator, she responded to all my emails, questions, and requests promptly--which was hugely important to me as a long-distance bride.
The Jerome is classic mountain west style. The Library and Wheeler Room are beautiful all on their own, which was important to us. The food--start to finish was amazing. Spring for a menu tasting. It's totally worth it. Day-of service was efficient and kind. We had a issue where we were one seat short (my fault) and they handled it smoothly and whatever trouble it caused them, I didn't hear about it.
I could go on and on, but it would all be another way to say that for us Hotel Jerome was the right choice.
