Exiting the Silver Queen Gondola, it immediately becomes clear why anyone would ever want to get married at 11,212 feet. The scenery at the top of Aspen Mountain makes the 15 minute ride worth every second.

Our Take on the Aspen Wedding Deck Wedding Venue in Aspen, Colorado

We completely understand the grandeur of getting married on a wedding deck. They feel like you are on top of the world. With that said, there are only a few actual wedding decks in Colorado. Outside of San Sophia Overlook, you’d be hard pressed to find a more scenic ceremony location. If Aspen is your jam, the Aspen Wedding Deck is by far the best location to have a wedding ceremony.

The Little Nell, who owns and operates the deck, has been doing weddings since 1989. Over the years they’ve updated the venue and just recently completed a rather extensive remodel.

As for the deck itself, it’s well maintained and the wood plank walkway helps avoid your white dress from picking up dirt. The terraced seating provides guests with a good view of you and your spouse as well as the Elk Mountain Range at the same time. We do have a few tips in regard to amplified music and seating arrangements, so please contact us if you have questions.

The only way to access the Aspen Wedding Deck is by riding the Silver Queen Gondola, which happens to be the longest single stage gondola in the world. The 2.5 mile ride up Aspen Mountain takes around 15 minutes, but puts you exactly 11,212 feet above sea level. This is quite the change from 8,000 feet in the town of Aspen below. Be sure to help out-of-state guests by making them aware of altitude sickness. A Acetazolamide (Diamox) tablet can go a long way for anyone who struggles with it.

We say this not to shy you away from an Aspen Wedding Deck ceremony, but just to bring to light some of the logistics involved. A water, snack, or blanket station can go a long way for making guests feel a bit more comfy for the ride.

Once your ceremony is done, you can either use the ASPENX Mountain Club next door or head down the mountain to one of many Aspen Wedding Venues.

If you are set on getting married in Aspen, but the Aspen Wedding Deck doesn’t fit the bill, the Maroon Bells is great wedding ceremony alternative with a smaller price tag.
