For couples planning a destination wedding in Snowmass, Colorado, finding a wedding officiant is an important detail to beginning the rest of your life together. Julie Adriansen has been marrying couples in the mountains for years and has this to say about the destination and her place in the ceremony.
This place gives me goosebumps. Snowmass mountain, Maroon Bells, Aspen Mountain . . . what better place can a couple start their lives together than surrounded and embraced by nature? I have married all sorts of people here - from a young couple that knew each other 2 months (and knew it was right) to a couple in their 70's who had been together for 22 years, to large wedding parties to intimate affairs of just the bride, groom and myself. I work with every couple to ensure the ceremony reflects their values and reasons for marrying. And all the ceremonies have a feeling only this place can offer. It is spiritual, like these mountains are wrapping you in their millions of years of “being”. With the mountains of Colorado as inspiration, it isn't difficult to craft a ceremony that not only celebrates love, but honors the place where a marriage starts. It is about beginning something new in a place that is so old.

In winter, cozy up in the lounge, relax at the bar, or sit down to a locally sourced, handcrafted menu. In summer, enjoy the Colorado sunshine and dine al fresco on the secluded outdoor patio.Reserve a Table
