Karen and Trevor's mid-June wedding at Wild Basin Lodge was an extremely colorful joy-filled (and llama-filled) day! These two met just before the pandemic lockdown and quickly realized they didn't want to quarantine with anyone else. Throughout their wedding planning process I have gotten to know them both, and Karen especially, through our phone calls and through Instagram. Although we hadn't met in person for an engagement session, when I found Karen in her suite getting ready it was like seeing an old friend, chatting about our cats and admiring her gorgeous flowers.
The Lodge was in full summer mode. The St. Vrain River was the highest I had ever seen due to rapid snowmelt this June, the paths around the venue were surrounded by lush greenery, and wildflowers were blooming in the fields. Some of my favorite man-made details of the day were the personalized carabiners used as napkin rings and as favors - a nod to Trevor's favorite hobby of climbing. They also had a five flutists playing Karen down the aisle, and two llamas with Idelwild canned cocktails and Budweiser beer greeting guests into cocktail hour. If you peek below, you'll see they stole the show for a handful of photos! I could not have been more thrilled to be invited to capture their day, and I hope you'll agree the photos below and the memories they represent for Karen and Trevor are truly fantastic.
