Aspen Wedding Venue Spotlight: Aspen Historical Society
The Aspen Historical Society has three different spaces available to for weddings: the Wheeler/Stallard Museum, the Holden/Marolt Ranch, and the Ashcroft Ghost Town. Today we’re specifically going to look at the Wheeler/Stallard Museum. Situated right in the heart of Aspen’s West End, the hip and historic residential neighborhood, the museum’s property is an “eclectic blend of Victorian charm and Aspen hospitality”. The home, built in 1888 by Jerome B. Wheeler, and grounds span an entire city block.
Large or small, formal and glam or Aspen rustic, this venue can be transformed to fit anyone’s tastes. The property is lined with long-existing pine trees providing a privacy barrier for your event. The house sits right in the middle of the property and is flanked on each side by large lawns, just waiting to be tented. The grounds are well-kept with beautifully landscaped seasonal greenery and flowers.
The house is allocated for use by the bridal party and caterers for your event, giving a bride and all of her maids a beautiful Victorian space to gather before the ceremony and keep their belongings.
The typical ceremony space has a stunning backdrop of pine trees and sneak peaks of Aspen Mountain in the background. Having your wedding at the Aspen Historical Society Wheeler/Stallard Museum, allows you to be surrounded by nature and your dearest family and friends to celebrate your love, while not being too far away from Aspen’s downtown.
Even if you decide not to have your wedding here, a visit to this stunning property while you’re in Aspen will not be time wasted. In fact, it’s a great activity to recommend to out of town guests. Rent bikes and tour the West End…just make sure you stop at the Historical Society’s museum for a visit! They’ll even take you on a walking tour of the neighborhood, if you’re so inclined!
