Colorado Wedding Photographer | Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark

August 29, 2014

Jasmine and Nathan recently wed at Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark, Colorado. Even though I grew up pretty close to that area I think that this was my first time getting out to Allenspark. Wild Basin Lodge is a really great venue and perfect for a rustic wedding. You have the option of walking down to the meadow and hosting your wedding with a view of the mountains behind you. Or if you think it’s too much of a hike for your guests the folks at Wild Basin Lodge have done a beautiful job setting up an amphitheatre style seating area right next to the main building in front of the St. Vrain Creek. This is where Jasmine and Nathan opted to host their ceremony to make it easier for their guests. It was a beautiful day with excellent food, lots of sunshine, and relaxing banter with their friends and family. They had the whole place to themselves and with two full levels and decks and balconies everywhere you turned, you could really stop and enjoy the nature there. It was a day wedding so I stayed until the very end so that I could get some romantic portraits of Jasmine & Nathan before the sun set on their wedding day. I love what we got! The really neat part of this venue is that Jasmine & Nathan got to stay in a room upstairs after it was all over.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I just love how all of the colors look in this one:)
