About the Shoot

This styled shoot was inspired by the intimate island of Santorini and the quiet reverence for nature that is so prominent in that area of Greece. With its sweetly flowing river and dramatic cliff-side backdrop, the peaceful setting of River Bend in Lyons, Colorado is perfectly reminiscent of being seaside on a volcanic yet pristine Greek island. Guided by the whimsical photography style of Jessi Dalton Photography, Purple Summer Events aimed to bring the spirit of the Greek Isles to life in Colorado using details inspired by water: one of the wild earthly forces that both Greece and Colorado share. By focusing on the way water meanders and moves, the planner sought to capture the way in which our lives are inherently “moved” by marriage. So many incredible vendors contributed to the vision for this shoot.
