Tiffany and Tom knew they wanted a magnificent backdrop for their wedding day, so choosing The Little Nell, which is nestled in the mountains of Aspen, Colorado, was a no-brainer! The couple loved the relaxed yet sophisticated feel of the town, and their wedding reflected those same vibes. Their outdoor ceremony took place on top of a cliff that had a perfect view of the mountains, and their reception was in the cozy Aspen Mountain Club lodge, which they decorated in an airy palette of white, green, and light pink. The bride wore a breathtaking Inbal Dror gown and mesh Christian Louboutin sandals. Adonye Jaja Photography and Magnified Joy beautifully captured the couple’s unique style and the location’s incredible views!

The wedding weekend style was completely edited and styled for each event. I wanted the look to be classic, glamorous, and with lots of pale neutrals like ivory, blush, and shades of nude. For the wedding day, I chose a statement dress with tons of beading, lace, and layers upon layers of tulle with a long train. As to let the dress speak for itself, I went with simple diamond studs, my wedding ring, and a beaded hair clip that was custom designed to match the dress. The look was exactly what I envisioned, and I hope proves to be timeless! The bridesmaids wore any dress they wanted in shades of neutrals.

We chose Aspen because we love the mix of outdoor activities, small friendly town feel, and the sophistication similar to NYC where we live. It best represents our personalities!

The most important part of planning our wedding was the backdrop! We wanted a naturally beautiful setting and a place where our friends and family could enjoy the weekend together. The small town of Aspen, Colorado was perfect for this!

The most memorable part of the day was Tom‘s vows. They stole the show and there was not a dry eye in the place!

We planned a special tribute to our dog because he couldn’t join in person. We named our wedding website “Walter the Grey” (for our beloved greyhound Walter) and had that name printed on the straws for our specialty cocktail drink, which was a Greyhound.
