Iconic Aspen Wedding with Kemo Sabe Welcome Party

February 21, 2024 BY: Bailey

“Peter and I have many joy-filled memories in Aspen from visiting my parents for vacation and holidays, and we wanted to make sure our family and friends had a memorable time in a place that we love. We knew early on in wedding planning that we wanted to show our appreciation to our wedding party with a pre-rehearsal dinner party at Kemo Sabe. I’m originally from western Kentucky, so the attire was “Western (Kentucky) Wear.” Peter surprised me with a custom brand featuring our wedding logo that was added to my Kemo Sabe hat, and it was so much fun to watch our family and friends get into their Aspen style. We then walked through downtown Aspen to Caribou Club for a beautiful rehearsal dinner filled with speeches from our siblings and friends, followed by a welcome party for all of our guests. We have the best memories of bringing our loved ones from all the different phases of our lives together on the Caribou Club dance floor! Our wedding day was truly one of the most beautiful Colorado September days. Our ceremony was in Anderson Park with a stunning view of Aspen Mountain in the background – the same view that was painted by my mom and featured on our Save the Dates. I loved how many personal details we were able to build into our wedding. I knew I wanted my mom’s artwork featured – her paintings were also included on our wedding invitations, dinner menus, and bar signs with our corgi, Rigatoni. For our welcome party, my friend Caroline designed a custom bandana with a pattern made up of icons that represent Peter and me. My dad’s 1984 Mercedes convertible turned into a bar that welcomed our guests to cocktail hour.”
