Between the lush green grass, colorful gardens and beautiful architecture, it is no wonder that Aspen Meadows Resort was honored as one of the top wedding venues in The Knot Best of Weddings 2010.

Considered to be one of the most sophisticated Aspen resort destinations, Aspen Meadows is an ideal location for an informal gathering of 20 or a grand-scale wedding of 400.

Not only does Aspen Meadows boast a variety of locations for weddings of all sizes and scope, but the resort is also home to the Doerr-Hosier Center, a Gold certified building by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program, making it the perfect location for a white wedding turned green. Additionally, all buildings on site are equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual capabilities, perfect for a memorable rehearsal dinner slideshow or reception video.
