Aspen Meadows Resort is such a wonderful venue to host a wedding in Colorado. Set off the main road in Aspen, Aspen Meadows felt like a little sanctuary. The property combines art and comfort through their 40 acres of land to create an intimate setting where you feel at one with nature. This resort is able to accommodate guests through 98 rooms - making it the perfect size to host all of your friends and family for an event. The ceremony site boasts incredible views of the snow-covered Rocky's. The reception hall is a designer's dream as they are able to go in many different directions with decor.
Sasha and Rachel are creatives - Sasha is a Director and Rachel is a gallerist. This wedding was full of love and art and some of the best dressed guests I have seen at a wedding, following Rachel & Sasha's lead. Rachel designed her black wedding dress and wanted it to be very whimsy and to feel like she had wings. Rachel paired the most gorgeous floral embroidered jacket with leather pants and sparkly boots.
The couple's wedding ceremony took place at the Anderson Park at Aspen Meadows Resort. They had a non traditional wedding and decided to make their wedding truly about them. The couple opted to wait under the Chuppah, beautifully created by Frances of Prema, while their guests processed to them. The wedding guests started at Marble Park and Mike Facey and his trio lead the guests down the aisle to meet Sasha & Rachel at their ceremony site. Along the pathway, there were beautifully hand-died flags and guests were welcomed to grab one and wave them around as they processed. There was so much amazing energy amongst the guests and the couple was overjoyed when they saw all of them come around a corner. The wood-slat bistro ceremony chairs were set in a semi-circle and split into three sections. There were two wooden aisles that met together where Sasha and Rachel were seated under the Chuppah. The Chuppah was decorated with asymmetrical greenery and symbolized the home. Sasha and Rachel had several friends do readings as well as friends play a song and they each read their own vows. Everyone jumped up and rushed the couple when they were pronounced married!
Cocktail hour was held in the Albright Pavillion at Aspen Meadows Resort. Guests enjoyed a specialty cocktail and hors d'oevres.
The McNulty Room at Aspen Meadows Resort was the perfect space for the couple's reception. Bluebird Productions floored the entire McNulty room with a Pewter colored 'wood' floor. In addition to the wood floor, they draped the walls and corners with a charcoal velvet fabric. For the ceiling, Prema created a wild hanging installation of long vines, plumosa fern, dark plum branches and agonis on round chandeliers. For the wedding reception table decor, the rectangle tables were dressed with a custom fabric runner and the round tables were draped in a blush velvet linens. Each table was decorated with deeply toned floral designs in different vases and bowls. There was a mix of bud vases, votive candles, and tall black pillars, crystal clusters, fresh stone fruit and small potted plants. Sprinkled in were hand opened butterflies pinned to various flowers. The couple's wedding colors were green, burgundy, champagne, deep reds, midnight blue, and copper evoking feelings of mystery, luminosity, bewitching, chic, wild, sincere, and relaxed.
