Grecian Inspired Wedding at River Bend

FILED IN: Weddings

Last September, Zach and I worked with some truly talented wedding professionals on a Grecian inspired styled shoot. We had been hoping to shoot at the incredible venue, River Bend, and when we spoke to Abbey from Purple Summer Events, she shared the same interests. It was then that she brought up her inspiration from Santorini, Greece and from there it all began to fall into place. We created a Pinterest board of ideas and what we found is that we had a similar look and feel (we were pinning the exact same things!) That’s when you know you’ve chosen the right coordinator for the shoot 😉

After a few months of planning, it came together so effortlessly. We couldn’t have been more thankful for the eye of Purple Summer Events because it was everything we dreamed up and them some! And the vendors that were involved just blew us away with all of the details. The day unfolded beautifully and by the end, we were so thankful for all the new friendships. It’s an incredible feeling to see something like this come to life. What’s really hard is to be so excited and unable to share the images, but now that the lovely ladies at Rocky Mountain Bride have featured it, we finally get to share it! Woo hoo!! Below are just some of our favorites. For more images, check out RMB’s feature!!

This Tara Keely dress from Blue Bridal is stunning!
