Where did you have your ceremony?
The Little Nell’s Wedding Deck
How did you decide on this location?
When he was single, my husband spent time skiing in Aspen, a friend of his had a home there. I was born and raised in Colorado. Some of our best memories together are from our trips to Aspen.
Where did you have your reception?
Aspen Mountain Club followed by dinner at the Caribou Club
How did you decide on Aspen Mountain Club for your reception?
We wanted to make it seamless and have our guests feel comfortable eating and drinking while we had all of our photos taken.
What was the mood at your wedding?
Smiles everywhere. It was surreal and perfect.
What is your best memory?
Seeing my mother-in-law beaming with pride and happiness. I am so thankful for her.
Do you have any advice for a bride planning a destination wedding?
Our guests included our wedding party, their significant others and family only. Keep it small. We had a reception back in Newport Beach one week after we got married so we could celebrate with everyone who wasn’t at the wedding and it was perfect.
