The breathtaking mountains of Colorado will forever be the best damn place to get married! For outdoor-loving couples planning a relaxed, fun wedding, Aspen Snowmass is such a good choice. You’ll find some of the world’s best skiing, picture-perfect Rocky Mountain views, and amazing food and resort options.
One of the best for weddings is Limelight Snowmass, a contemporary luxury resort that’s so awesome to enjoy at any time of the year. It’s about a 4 ½ hour drive from Denver, but with plenty of epic viewpoints to stop at along the way, soaking in all that refreshing mountain air. Or, fly into Aspen, where you can easily get a shuttle to the resort, so you don’t need to even rent a car.
Here’s why you’ll love a wedding at Limelight Hotel in Snowmass!
Why Host A Wedding In Aspen?
Aspen Snowmass is incredible in winter for skiing and snowboarding, but it’s also popular year-round, thanks to its natural beauty, luxury cuisine, and relaxing vibe.
You can do as little or as much as you want here, so all of your guests will find something to love! While there are lots of amazing hiking and snowsports here, you can also find cute coffee shops, bars, boutique shopping, and lots of other low-key ways to enjoy the town.
It’s worth knowing that Aspen is known for being a bit expensive, especially in winter — my tip is to book your Aspen wedding venue in spring or autumn, when prices are a little lower.
And with Limelight as your Snowmass wedding venue, you’ll be within walking distance from a lot of popular restaurants, shops, and things to do. Or, as an alternative, a weekend away to Aspen would also be the perfect choice for your Colorado engagement photos!

Best Times For Aspen Snowmass Weddings
Of course, a white winter wedding is always stunning in Aspen, but I also really recommend fall. When getting married at Limelight Hotel, they have a beautiful wedding ceremony option that takes you to an overlook in the valley via a shuttle. It is STUNNING and really unlike anywhere else.
Autumn is truly great for the gorgeous colors. I recommend it because spring and summer can cause the foliage to look a bit dry and brown. In terms of timing, a ceremony just before sunset is great for both temperature lighting in the spring, summer, or early fall.
If you’re not from Colorado, keep in mind that the elevation is higher here, so take care to stay hydrated and look after yourself!
Resort Activities & Dining At Limelight
Staying at Limelight is the perfect base for enjoying the Aspen Snowmass region. Your friends and fam can try out hiking, bike trails, or even the nearby climbing wall. The ski village is great to hang out in too, and there’s an ice skating rink in winter.
For dining, the Limelight wedding venue offers the Aspen Restaurant & Bar, a top choice for breakfast, a casual dinner, or evening live music. However, a few popular local restaurants to check out include:
- The White House Tavern: This highly rated Aspen venue, set in a 19th-century miner’s cottage, has a delicious menu of all-American favorites, including deviled eggs and burgers — yum!
- Steakhouse No. 316: OK, this one is a bit of a splurge, but No. 316 is an old-school-style steakhouse that just needs to be tried! Easily the best rib eye or NY strip in Aspen.
- The Stew Pot: This casual Snowmass favorite is a great choice for comfort food, homemade soups, and filling sandwiches.
