It’s always a good day when I get to post a reader wedding, it’s an even better day when I get to share a venue we’ve never featured before! This is Jennifer and Kevin’s wedding at Chateau Rive at the Flour Mill by Prior Moments Photography. Chateau Rive is a historic venue with amazing views located near downtown Spokane, I’m delighted to finally showcase it on AB!
Kevin and Jennifer put a lot of thought into every detail of their big day, here’s what Jennifer had to say:
“As soon as Kevin and I saw Chateau Rive at the Flour Mill we fell in love with the venue. It offers indoor and outdoor options which is perfect for Spokane’s unpredictable weather. Lucky for us the sun came out as soon as our ceremony began so I had my outdoor spring wedding with the Spokane River as a background. Our reception was held steps away inside of the venue which looks like a castle with stone walls, wood pillars and chandeliers.
We handmade our programs which included a crossword puzzle about us as well as a celtic tree horoscope. I fit subtle celtic details throughout the wedding and reception with a handfasting ceremony, cladaugh charms on our toasting glasses, hidden claddaughs inside or our rings and a bagpiper.
Our friends and family helped us so much to make this wedding exactly what I wanted. The groom’s mom sewed all of the table toppers, friends made cupcake signs and helped setup all of the decorations.
The staff of Chateau Rive and Glover Mansion were amazing as well.”
