Award-winning wedding venue fine-tunes recipe for romance

Innovative engineers offer brilliant planning system, add all-inclusive Wild Basin Wedding package

ALLENSPARK, COLO. (July 15, 2015) – Award-winning wedding venue Wild Basin Lodge & Event Center owners Nils and Denice Kristoffersen have been pioneers in the weddings industry for fourteen years. Originally engineers, they created a smart, proprietary planning system they use to coordinate every detail of each wedding. They are now launching the Wild Basin Wedding™, a new all-inclusive pricing model that rolls all fees, taxes and service charges into one simple price, making wedding budgeting easy and stress-free.

“Couples are initially attracted to Wild Basin Lodge for the romance we offer, including the beauty of the building and the stunning setting,” said Denice. “We’re just outside the boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park, overlooking the St. Vrain River. We offer 14 acres surrounded by aspen groves and willows, with the majestic peaks of the Colorado Rockies in the background. We have two outdoor ceremony sites, and an interior able to accommodate weddings of almost any size. There’s an air of casual elegance throughout the lodge with handcrafted wood and stone finishes and tasteful modern amenities.”

She continued: “They also like the fact that we’re one of the very few venues that host only weddings — and only one wedding a day, so each wedding has the privacy and focus it deserves. The Lodge itself is also secluded and quiet, but still only a short drive from the world-famous town of Estes Park.”

“But what they love the most, what ends up making the biggest difference, is our proprietary in-house planning system,” she added. “It allows us to track all the important steps, and have contingencies ready to go for anything that might come up. It really removes the stress from their important day. It also allows us to offer a myriad of options so they can fully personalize their wedding.”

The Lodge team spends an average of one year working with couples, customizing every aspect of their special day.

“And now we have something else for them to love,” added Nils. “The Wild Basin Wedding complements this approach and allows us to offer lower prices, helping us achieve our goal of transforming wedding dreams into wedding realities.”
