Colleen + Eric - Rowena's Inn on the River Wedding

Colleen and Eric's nature-themed "fairytale" wedding was located at the Rowena's Inn on the River. It is a beautiful English style manor that overlooks the Harrison River. Their choice of venue couldn't have been a better one, since their wedding was surrounded by the scenic outdoors with amazing views....much like their Engagement Session. There's something really nice about being away from the hustle and bustle of the city life... we got some incredible shots of the backdrop with the mountains and rivers. It made Colleen and Eric's wedding that much more intimate and romantic.  

We were able to capture some really stunning photos throughout the whole day. Scroll down to to see how their wedding day unfolds!

While we were shooting their Engagement Session, Eric mentioned he owns his own custom cabinet company, so it was really special to see that his ring was personalized to reflect his passion for woodworking.

We love the florish details of the bowties...its different than anything we've ever seen before. It really pulled the whole look together!

Great shot of the guys together...loving the pink bowties!

The expressions on the Bridesmaids faces were priceless when they were demanding money from the Groom.

Before the day started, Colleen changed into a gorgeous traditional red Chinese gown. We've shot many tea ceremonies and many brides, but we've never seen such a gown before! We loved how elaborate the dress looked with the gold jewelry that was given her.

Check out her Louboutin wedding flats!

The detailing of the embroidery was amazing! Her train of her robe is almost as long as the train of her wedding dress...

We loved how her Father wore a purple bowtie to match the Groomsmen!

This was the newly renovated english manor where they held their outdoor ceremony.

Colleen had changed into a custom made princess style bridal dress. She looked so pretty!

We have never seen a veil or train longer than hers! The lavish details and lace on the dress was really gorgeous.

And this was their First Look...

How awesome is it, to get iPads as a Bridesmaids gift?! Look how happy the Bridesmaids were!

Colleen knew exactly what she wanted in her photographs...to be surrounded by nature.  We are happy that we were able to make it all happen!

The picturesque backdrop behind the altar was just breathtaking! Our favorite was the pretty heart shaped altar that was decorated with pink and white roses!

Aside from the impressive floral centerpieces, the gold chiavari chairs were nice touches to add to the pink and gold theme of their wedding.

Colleen was not the only one who changed her lovely outfit...look who else changed his bowtie...we thought it was a nice touch!

The ruffles and lace, we loved.  Every last detail of the wedding was thought of and everything came together beautifully.  Colleen had planned everything down to perfection!

These guys sure know how to party and have a good time! The night was not over until a proper dance off!

To end the amazing night, we topped it off with just one more epic shot...
