*Jacquelyn and Matt* August 23, 2014
Wow! Wow! Wow! Simply wow! Those would be my words to sum up Jaquelyn and Matt’s beautiful Wild Basin Lodge wedding! Oh my, was it a gorgeously spectacular day filled with an abundance of love and laughter!
Jacquelyn was born in Tulsa, OK and Matt in Littleton, CO. They met in June 2011 when they were both out at Park Tavern in Denver with their separate friends. Jaquelyn caught Matt’s eye and he proceeded by approaching her which was followed by an evening of discussing meteorology, among other things. They went their separate ways at the end of the evening and happened to run into each other a week later… They slowly began dating and later took a special trip to Steamboat Springs, CO where they both fell completely in love with one another… Once they returned home they shared their feelings with each other. How utterly romantic!
Jacquelyn grew up visiting the Wild Basin Lodge and enjoying the food when it was a restaurant. She had always wanted to get married in the mountains and when her and Matt went to tour the lodge as a perspective wedding venue – they were smitten! The absolutely stunning property and the unconditional care and concern the staff at the lodge bestows upon each couple were more than enough reason for Matt and Jacquelyn to host their wedding at this amazing lodge!
I just love the centerpieces on the tables filled with the baby’s breath! The blue mason jars are Jaquelyn’s stepmother’s sisters from the 70’s! When I asked the inspiration behind the decor… Jacquelyn’s favorite color is blue and from there she found ideas from Pinterst for decor details! It all turned out beautifully!
When I asked Jaquelyn what made her choose her wedding dress, she responded… “I knew I wanted a key hole in the back of my dress before going in looking for dresses. I tried on about 10 dresses that day, but knew that it was my dress after I put it on. It was the one dress that I didn’t want to take off 🙂 ” In my opinion that should be the reason any bride chooses THEIR dress… The one they don’t want to take off!
I had an amazing time working with Jacquelyn and Matt! They are extremely genuine and kindhearted people with a pure joy that is constantly radiating from them, especially when they are around each other! Theirs was a beautiful love to witness and a true pleasure to photograph!
It was a blast shooting their engagement photos earlier this year at Jacquelyn’s families cabin (which happened to be located near Wild Basin Lodge). It was a beautiful cabin with stunning views! CLICK HERE to view those photos – they had some unique details!
