Last week’s Real Wedding couple Christi + Glenn’s Baltimore, Maryland wedding is so green and awesome, we have to share more! The fans were a great addition to their day, and particularly appreciated in their historically green venue, the Union Mills Homestead, which only provided natural breeze. The couple and their guests had a blast, and we’re sure you’ll love the rest of their wedding details.
See you tomorrow!

Here’s why Hevia skincare is an option:
· Natural ingredients. The line contains cutting-edge natural ingredients, including a proprietary blend that features Red Mangrove Extract, an ingredient with greater antioxidant potency than Vitamin C, which cannot be found in any other skincare line.
· Plant-to-product. Mangroves, the source of Red Mangrove Extract, are indigenous to the coasts of Florida and the Caribbean and play an important ecological role in maintaining the health of these coastal regions.
· Environmentally responsible. A portion of all proceeds are donated to the South Florida National Parks Trust to restore and replant mangrove trees crucial to the ecosystem and floral identity of the Florida coast.
· Organic. Over 80 percent of the ingredients utilized in HEVIA MD SKIN SCIENCE™ are organic and harvested from sustainable resources.

There was a bit of green on last night red carpet. Actress Olga Kurylenko wore the winning design from the annual Red Carpet Green Dress competition, which uses fashion to promote eco-friendly design. This year’s dress was designed by French designer Alica Elia, and was made from sustainable materials.
The elegant and sophisticated silhouette of this design has an aisle style feel to us. What do you think?
A couple that “greens” together, stays together…
Maryland newlyweds Christi + Glenn both work in industries that are very focused on sustainable practices, so they wanted a wedding that was as absolutely green as possible. So, their wedding became a personal challenge to only use either items they already owned, could rescue from the trash or objects that could be re-purposed. The lovebirds found their DIY projects and time spent hunting for wedding finds to be a relaxing way to spend time together, cherishing the objects and priceless memories made with their loved ones.
The end result was just beautiful! Here are a few of the highlights…
Here are Christi + Glenn’s Top 5 Green Things from their Wedding Day:
