One of the reasons why couples are choosing locations like Aspen for their wedding is it allows couples to introduce all of their family and friends to a location that is natural in wonder and beauty, while at the same time creating a sense of vacation rather than just a one day event.

In this wedding, the couple chose to incorporate all aspects of the surrounding landscape - complete with an outdoor ceremony looking out to the breathtaking mountains, and even worked in a few current wedding trends like wedding chalkboards, a wood cake stand and sliced wood for place card holders.

A favorite aspect of this wedding is the gondola ride the couple took just after their wedding ceremony. Not only does it make for the perfect picture but a special moment for the couple to marvel in.
