Jeff and Danielle
Wild Basin Lodge
August 14, 2010
Saturday was the perfect day for a mountain wedding, and the Wild Basin Lodge is always a gem. Danielle and Jeff got married there alongside a stream, and then celebrated with an dinner for 40 of their closest friends. I loved how the wedding preparations were a group effort — the cake, flowers, music, and decor were all created by their friends and family.The staff at Wild Basin Lodge were excellent to work with, and took great care of Jesse and me. They even offered to accommodate any of our dietary restrictions or allergies, which is a rare treat for wedding vendors. I was truly impressed by the level of their service. Highly recommended.

Danielle and the ladies spent the first part of the day getting their makeup done on their balcony.

Danielle had propped a photo of Jeff on her mirror to keep her company as she got ready.

Yogi and Rudy got dressed up for the occasion.
A photo of Danielle’s recently deceased father stood in the chair where he would have been seated. Danielle’s brother walked her down the aisle.
The ceremony took place in an amphitheater along the river.
The adorable flower girl wore a brown dress and a pale pink floral headband.
The reception was arranged with two long tables that joined at a sweetheart table in the middle.
The entire meal was vegetarian! I’m not usually able to try a little bit of everything, but this time I did, and it was delicious!
