Rivers are beautiful inspiration for a nature inspired wedding and the magnificent setting of this one in Bend, Oregon is no exception. The surrounding rocks are just as much of a presence as the water, and together with the light create an earthy yet dreamlike atmosphere. Connie Whitlock captured these gorgeous images during the Erich McVey Workshop and we’re thrilled to be sharing them! A long-sleeve lace gown from Rue de Seine was the perfect complement to windswept hair, silk ribbons tied to a gathered-in-the-wild bouquet, and natural makeup with a peachy glow. A bohemian river goddess!
