This Greek Goddess 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, we aimed to bring the spirit of the Greek Isles to life in Colorado with Emma Lea Floral’s loose and airy approach to floral design and by incorporating details suggestive of one of the wild, earthly forces that both Greece and Colorado share: water. By focusing on the way water meanders and moves, we sought to capture the way in which our lives are inherently “moved” by marriage — the way in which we blossom and change when a promise is made to share a life.
