Love the mountains? Say your vows right in the middle of them.
There are a lot of options to choose from when you get married in the mountains: alongside a river, in a meadow at the base of mountains, or even on top of a mountain. Any one of them is breathtaking and will create a memorable experience for you and your guests; choose the one that is best for you!
Alongside a River
The sound of a rushing river is calming and beautiful. Exchanging your vows near one while listening to the water is magical. Add to the sound of the water the accompanying nature often found on river banks: lush trees, green grass, and birds, for example, will complete the experience and make your ceremony one that stands out in the minds of guests who are used to attending ceremonies at traditional sites. The North St. Vrain River rushes through the Wild Basin Lodge property, providing a special place to say your vows.
In a Meadow
With mountain meadows come awesome mountain views; the change in landscape from rolling meadow to jutting mountain is striking. And regardless of the season, the landscape will be beautiful. Green grass and wildflowers in the spring, shades of red and gold in the fall, a hint of snow as fall progresses. With views and colors such as these behind you as you say your vows you and your fiancé will stand out amongst the beauty in a stunning way. The Meadow ceremony site at Wild Basin Lodge looks into the Wild Basin portion of Rocky Mountain National Park, providing an unadulterated mountain backdrop for your wedding day.
On Top of a Mountain
Marrying on top of a mountain gives you and your guests mountain views as far as the eye can see. The blues and greens from the land below is understated yet stunning in its beauty and breadth. Mountaintop ceremony sites exist at ski resorts, as well as venues that are located higher in the mountains. Ski resorts are an exceptional place for a mountaintop ceremony; your guests ride chair lifts from the base to the top of the mountain, giving them a stunning ride on the way to a very special occasion. Wild Basin Lodge does not have a mountain top ceremony site but is happy to recommend venues nearby that do.
Regardless of the type of mountain ceremony site you choose, being in mountains is invigorating and exciting! Contact us to learn more about our meadow and river ceremony sites or see photos in our gallery.
