Imagine youself standing near a mountain stream, Aspen trees rustling in the wind, and a world-class destination resort as the setting. Now, where is this, you ask? Well, it's located in the River Run Village at the base of the Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colorado. The gondola is used to reach higher mountaintop venues, but why leave all the action in the village when you can be a part of it?
According to the website, the "Quaking Aspen Amphitheater is located a few steps from The Keystone Neighbourhood's Warren Station, and may be reserved for use with The Pavilion or on its own. The Amphitheater is an outdoor venue constructed of rocks and surrounded by aspen and pine trees, making it a perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Accommodates 175 people."
This venue was used at a recent wedding that our flower shop, Petal and Bean, provided flowers for. We delivered and set up the wedding prior to the ceremony and guests arriving, so check back for this wedding to be featured on our real mountain weddings section of our blog.
Be sure to check the event calendar to see what's happening the village at the time you're considering, because one weekend there was a bluegrass and brews event happening and there were folks everywhere. You can join the fun and use the festivities and action as a great photo opportunity.
This family was wandering around the River Run Village. There are many restaurants, shops and stores to explore in this area. We usually end up in the Kickapoo Tavern during ski season, as it's right at the base of the gondola, and is a great apres hangout.
