Aspen Wedding Planner FAM | Featured Event At Dunbar Ranch


In recent posts, I’ve been taking you along on my journey through an amazing 3 day event in which some of the world’s top wedding planners were celebrated for their contributions to the wedding industry. If you missed it, be sure to check out day 1 where we explored Hotel Jerome and other luxury hot spots in Aspen, as well as day 2 where we had the privilege of wining and dining at The Little Nell among other exquisite Aspen locales!

In this post we’ll explore day 3 of this event where these celebrated professionals had the opportunity to tour several top Aspen event venues and experience some of the beauty and adventure that make Aspen one of the top coveted wedding destinations in the country. The conclusion to this event was a whirlwind of adventure and elegance, as we explored The Gant Aspen as well as Aspen Square Hotel, conquered Independence Pass, savored the charm of Dunbar Ranch, and captured portrait headshots at The St. Regis Aspen!


The Gant Aspen: A Mountain Oasis

Our day began at The Gant Aspen, a harbor of luxury nestled in the heart of Aspen. All participants were treated to a tour of this enchanting property, complete with cozy lodging and event space that offer guests a perfect retreat for any festivity. Amidst quiet conversation and stunning views, guests were able to enjoy a unique and delicious breakfast courtesy of The Gant. It was truly a perfect way to kick off the final leg of this amazing event!
