Chateau Rive Wedding: Gabe + Athina

Where do I even start? I don’t usually do this, but I guess I’ll start with a review Gabe wrote me.

“Cassie Trottier is absolutely my favorite photographer in Spokane! I have got the opportunity to do two photo shoots with her and I’m always taken back by her talent. Sadly I had booked another photographer for my wedding and I just felt in my heart that if I wanted my wedding to be everything I wanted I needed her. It was worth loosing our down deposit and going in another direction with Cassie. She worked with my fiancé and I on our budget and was extremely sweet and understanding. We’re looking forward to having her as our wedding photographer and I’m now confident that my day will be everything and more now that I have her capturing our day. We love you Cassie!”

Literally WUT. How freakin’ sweet. I sincerely adore this couple and was beyond blessed to photograph their big day.

Chateau Rive is naturally gorgeous, but with Athina & Gabe’s spirit, everything just seemed to shine brighter and brighter. They are such a freakin’ blast, and their wedding was no different. I have so many great things to say, but as usual, I feel like the photos speak for themselves. I do wan’t to point out a few of my favorite vendors because when I’m obsessed with something, I have to share.

DJ Bent Events is my FAV DJ vendor. They are truly the kindest people ever and, as a vendor, I have noticed all the little things that they do to help the bride & groom throughout the day. It’s like, they’re actual lifesavers. Their skills are fabulous and they’re basically angels. Cheers.

Also - please go check out Honest and Ivory RIGHT. NOW. Same with Hello Sugar because they literally create the most delicious doughnuts in the city.

Also also - Artifact Rentals has the most gorgeous objects for brides to rent. It’s like they truly take the day to the next level.

Anyway, it’s past the midnight hours (as usual) so these photos will describe the day much better than I could. I’m STILL obsessed.
