Here are some GLE tips on how to embrace the winter climate, straight from the Rocky Mountains!
Bundle up! Whether it’s for yourself or advising your guests, be sure to layer up and keep warm. We love when couples make the best of the brisk weather by incorporating a garment that’s cohesive with their color scheme and aesthetic.
Get toasty! Offering pre-ceremony beverages is a sure way to keep guests bodies and mind off the chillier weather.
Snuggle up! Offering blankets and heaters aren’t only weather-appropriate, they also offer a unique décor factor your guests will be sure to thank you for!
Stay warm out there!!
Since sadly all good things must come to an end, we're sharing expert advise on how to throw a beautiful farewell brunch to thank your guests attending your celebration weekend!
Guests who’ve traveled to/from a wedding are typically invited to the farewell brunch, and we highly recommend including an invitation and RSVP for the brunch with the wedding invite, this way we can give catering an accurate count of attendance, as often times guest’s departures interfere with the timing of brunch and therefore can effect the turnout.
If your wedding destination is in a warm climate, we always recommend an outdoor setting for brunch, allowing guests to enjoy fresh air and nice weather prior to departure.
And always remember, Bloody Mary's and mimosas don’t go unnoticed! Especially for guests who took advantage of the bar at your wedding the night prior, and you can't go wrong if you opt to accompany them with an omelet station, pastries and/or bagels. #Yum!
Favorite Fall Traditions and Treats
As the days get shorter and begin to catch a nip in the air we turn our thoughts to colorful fall days and favorite fall activities that coincide. The spectacular temperatures and natural golden palette of colors all around us remind us to enjoy the lingering sunny days and celebrate with favorite fall treats that embody that wonderful feeling of fall! Each year we take advantage of the traditional fall activities brought with traditional fall treats that invoke memories year after year.
A favorite fall tradition spent picking apples in the orchard and dipping into caramel for homemade caramel apples to ring in the season. Don’t forget to grab some spiced warm apple cider and fresh baked apple pie!
Keep warm as the weather turns cooler with favorite fall treats made with traditional flavors and spices. On sunny fall afternoons gather with friends to watch the leaves change color while enjoying warm cinnamon coffees and chai tea at a brisk outdoor café.
Another favorite fall tradition on sunny fall afternoons to gather with friends and family at the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins to carve on Halloween. Savor sweet sugary candy corn and roast the seeds over the fire. As trick-o-treaters come to the door enjoy rich chocolate pies and mulled red wine spiced with cinnamon.
Take a leaf peeping hike on a colorful day while the blue skies and changing leaves provide a beautiful natural golden palette with apricot beers. Rake up the leaves and jump sip on hot cocoas and celebrate your inner child as your listen to the crunchy leaves.
By the time Thanksgiving comes around it is pumpkin spice everything with cinnamon coffees, squash salads and pumpkin pie!! The longer nights around the fire spent with family and friends reminds us these favorite fall traditions will always invoke wonderful memories year after year.

Brooke and Ryan were married two years ago in the breezy summer air of the Roaring Fork Club in Basalt, Colorado. Now, not only are they celebrating their 2 year anniversary, they also have a baby boy! So we want to celebrate their anniversary and wish them the best of luck! Now lets take a look back at their Aspen wedding day that started them on this amazing adventure of a life together!
The Roaring Fork Club is the ideal venue for couples that love gorgeous Aspen views but do not mind a short shuttle ride down to Basalt. We love this venue for it's stunning wedding lawn and the Roaring Fork Club's incredible food and amazing service, that will only impress your guests! Only members at this club can get married in the heart of summer, however non-members can get married when it is not at the peak of the season.
