Wild Basin Lodge weddings are among some of my favorite in Colorado. The wedding venue, located about an hour north-west of Boulder in Allenspark, is in a beautiful location. It is near one of the less popular entrances to the eastern side of Rocky Mountain National Park. Aspen trees surround Wild Basin Lodge, as well as mountain rivers, and meadows. There are cabins available for couples to get ready in, and I love the wooden fences around the property, as well as the bridge over the river, and the decks that are built off the actual lodge. And even though the venue has rustic charm, it is also chic and classy.
Jake and Andrea got married at Wild Basin on a beautiful Colorado fall day. The weather held until after the outdoor ceremony, and then turned cooler with a bit of rain. A cocktail hour was held at the cozy bar, and then dinner and toasts were held in the downstairs dining room. During this time, a few moose decided to crash the event, adding even more excitement to the day. Andrea’s great style was evident in the table decor–aspen branches, feathers, and delicate craved wooden balls. Cake cutting, more toasts, and dancing took place in the upstairs “ballroom.” The tables around the dance floor allowed non-dancing guests to chat and mingle and catch up with each other without being isolated from the wedding revelers.
The staff at Wild Basin Lodge is wonderful. They take great care of the wedding couple and wedding guests. Andrea and Jake had a plated dinner that was delicious, and I was impressed with how timely it was served. This is one of the main reasons I love Wild Basin Lodge weddings–the events are bound to run beautifully!
