The architecture, the clean lines and the jaw dropping views on the wedding deck had us ooh-ing and ahh-ing all day. This one is a high recommendation to the modern sleek bride + groom!

The Little Nell & Aspen Wedding Deck (Aspen, CO) Aspen’s only ski-in/ski-out resort, filled to the brim with top notch amenities and romantic intimacy. We were privileged to work alongside some of The Little Nell’s premium culinary talent at the 2015 Boulder Burgundy Festival.

Marry their upstanding service with the stunning hotel + event ground at the base of Aspen mountain, and any celebration at the Little Nell is destined to be dreamy.
