[VENUE] Warren Station in Keystone Resort's River Run Village in Keystone, Colorado

Just to the right in the image below is the Quaking Aspen Amphitheatre, located in the heart of the River Run Village at the Keystone Ski Resort.  Big parking lots (that are free) are just a short walk away from the Warren Station, an attractive option for a modern facility that's in the base village.

On the outside, there's an outside deck that guests can relax on, or you can choose to take photos next to the stream running next to the building.  There are some kid-friendly attractions in the base area that can keep the little ones occupied.  Or, you can even mix a mountain top ceremony on the Mozart deck, and then return to Warren Station for the reception.

[CEREMONY] Quaking Aspen Amphitheatre: Outside Wedding Ceremony Location in Keystone, Colorado

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."

There are many bridges with trees and mountains as backdrops in Summit County, so much that capturing dramatic mountain wedding imagery is pretty easy.  It's making sure you have the right person using the right equipment to ensure the highest quality prints possible.

Decorating the cake to match the flowers and decor is a great way to personalize your event.  But, the real question is, are you going to have a cake, cupcakes, or dessert table?
