American designer Vera Wang unveiled her 2014 bridal collection this fall, and it was stunningly pink! With lots of tulle, organza, silk and feminine details, Vera gives the classic wedding gown a new twist with shades of pink.
Daring brides have been thinking pink for some time now, hitting the aisle in blush gowns by designers such as Claire Pettibone. But perhaps the Vera Wang collection will bring new inspiration, and more brides will choose to go blush…or bashful.
Would you choose pink as the signature color for your wedding gown? If you have, we love to see pics!

This week’s featured couple, Amanda and Zach, chose Castle Farms Charlevoix, Michigan for their intimate fall wedding. The beautiful fall leaves inspired the wedding’s colors, and the couple also snuck a little coastal scenery in with a post-wedding photo shoot in nearby Petoskey. Two beautiful settings!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Amanda + Zach!

Burlap often gets a bad “wrap” (pun intended) as a rough, frumpy fabric that has no place at an elegant wedding affair. But, it can actually be lovely when used the right way. Burlap is neutral enough to complement almost any color palette, and it so versatile, that it can be used any and everywhere. Combine burlap with some vintage lace, and accent centerpieces, favors and boutonnières too.
Inspired by the fall air and a vintage flair, photographer Erin Leigh sought to help eco brides and grooms visualize a wedding day crafted from recycled and re-purposed materials, many of which can be found in their own homes.
A vegetable garden theme is played out in the floral design and escort cards. All of the details used in the shoot—including the décor, signage, and the bride’s fascinator were all handmade. Even the location was all about the eco!
