River Bend Wedding Inspiration

This River Bend Wedding Inspiration was full of bright, warm colors, organic elements, and touches of elegance flowing within every detail. The landscape of the Lyons River Bend was so serene and peaceful allowing every colorful detail to emerge. Surrounded by a huge cliff and a gentle river, River Bend helped create a relaxing and inspiring environment throughout the day.

When it came to flowers, Robyn from Bare Root Flora wanted something lush, gorgeous and wild to complement the incredible beauty of River Bend. We wanted a fresh and lovely spring color palette with an added hint of deeper tones for a bit of moodiness and sophistication. Textural pincushion protea, artichokes and figs were a perfect contrast for softer blooms–peonies, ranunculus, roses, sweet peas, poppies, azalea and perfect parrot tulips. Gorgeous olive, eucalyptus and plum foliages gave the flowers beautiful movement. The element of terra cotta added an earthy feature and was a perfect foil to the cliff walls reaching high above the river.

The stationary and calligraphy created by La Happy Design & Calligraphy were beautiful and delicate. We loved the watercolored honeycombed shaped place cards that tied around the napkins with a silk ribbon as it added a subtle yet creative element.

The patterned table runners added a bold modern touch to the soft delicacies of the timeless accessories. We used weathered candle holders and vintage skinny taper candles to complement the color palette.

Megan from Megan Joy Cakes designed the perfect cake to accent the honeycomb shape that inspired this whole design.

A huge thank you to all involved, including Liz Wegrzyn for gorgeous hair and makeup, A and Bé Bridal Studio for sharing the lovely Rebecca Schoneveld dress with us, Allwell Rents for the table, and the model, Katrina Grosz.
