Wild Basin Lodge, Allenspark, Colorado

This Rocky Mountain wedding focused on what was most important to Kate and Colin – each other, their families and the natural beauty of the state they now call home. 

Kate and Colin were married at Wild Basin Lodge in Rocky Mountain National Park. They said their vows in private to each other in their favorite spot in the park, before saying them in an emotional ceremony in front of their families. Afterward, the group celebrated with an intimate outdoor dinner surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature. “We wanted time to celebrate our new life as a couple, in addition to celebrating the family bonds we were creating,” Kate said.

When we were first talking about their wedding plans, Kate told us, “We have done a lot of work with each other to craft a relationship that is truly ours, taking cues and ideas from other relationships but never wanting another’s relationship.” The same could be said of their wedding. It was completely, uniquely theirs, with no pressure to be anything other than what they wanted out of that day. 

This was the second wedding Mauricio photographed for this amazing family. Kate’s sister Jenny and her husband, Noel, were married a couple of years prior. Check out their Sonoma wedding photos!
