Painter Boy Ceremony Site and Tented Reception

Aspen/Vail/High Rockies



Have the outdoor Rocky Mountain wedding of your dreams at the Painter Boy Ceremony Site. Located at the top of the Painter Boy lift, the peak of Mount Crested Butte serves as the spectacular backdrop for your wedding ceremony and reception. Have your nuptial celebrations at the top of the mountain standing in fields of purple and yellow wildflowers. With a maximum capacity of 300 people, you can have a smaller, intimate wedding or larger, extravagant wedding at this breathtaking location. You will look like you are standing in the meadows from The Sound of Music with the mountains seen off in the distance against a background of impossibly blue sky. Set up circular white tents in these fields and have a place for a fancy reception after a ceremony in the center of untarnished nature. This unique reception venue will make for an unforgettable location for your wedding that your guests will never forget. Fulfill your dreams in the heart of the mountains under the soft glow of the sun peaking between the branches surrounding the clearing.
