Vendor Spotlight: Gwyn’s High Alpine0
Aspen is a beautiful place to get married. If you are planning an Aspen wedding there are many wonderful venues to choose from and vendors to help you put your dreams into reality. One of these amazing Aspen venues is Gwyn’s High Alpine. While this local restaurant has been known as one of the best on-mountain restaurants for 30+ years, this year is the first they are involved in wedding planning.
Gwyn’s boasts high quality cuisine and stunning mountain views. Located at 10,461 ft. on the mountain in Snowmass, it is an intimate and unique wedding venue in the Roaring Fork Valley. It would truly be a perfect spot for your wedding day! We spoke to Whitney and Gwyn about what makes their venue special.
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: We have been in business for 38 years but have just moved into the summer Wedding and party planning business since our remodel this year.
Q: What makes your venue unique?
A: Our venue is very unique because it is mid-mountain on the ski area in Snowmass and was not accessible for summer events until this last year when the road was improved for remodel construction. We are one of the only family owned on- mountain operations in the Aspen area and the United States. We have a beautiful facility that is completely off the beaten path and yet complete with everything for any wedding or event.
Q: How many people can the venue accommodate?
A:Gwyn’s dining room seats 100 people but our famous Sailplane level will accommodate 150 people which is our max via the Forest Service.
Q: What does it include? (I.e. chairs, tables, linens, etc.)
A:Our venue pricing includes ceremony site fees and Food and Beverage costs. We are happy to accommodate any additional planning to make the event all-inclusive and worry-free for the couple.
Q: How many hours are included in the rental?
A:There are no hourly limits to the wedding venue. Transportation to and from the venue is the only hourly cost that is incurred.
Q: What are catering options?
A:Our executive chef will work with Bride and Groom to provide the ultimate wedding culinary experience.
Q: What is a typical wedding day like?
A:The day for the wedding couple begins with a scenic ride up the ski area with the wedding party. We have multiple levels and areas for the couple and their parties to get prepared for the wedding. Guests will be escorted in Luxury Vans up the mountain and welcomed to our amazing venue at 10,461ft. Post ceremony, overlooking the Cirque, appetizers and cocktails will be served on our spacious upper deck as Wedding party and family take photos over an incredible vista of the Snowmass Valley Below. Dinner will be served in Gwyn’s Dining Room or on our Sail Plane Level. Conclude the reception dinner with a custom cake from one of our classically trained Pastry Chef’s. After toasts, dancing will commence in our grand entry. Gwyn’s is an incredibly unique and private venue with the most beautiful views.
Q: What are special touches you love?
A:We are very proud of our family restaurant and venue and will do everything to make the experience as perfect and personal as possible. We can provide just the venue and the catering or we can organize the entire event with wedding planning included to ensure that your wedding is perfect and stress free. We are known for our world class food and service and will make your wedding the most unique, spectacular and memorable day of your lives.
