Los Angeles-based bridal accessories designer Olivia Nelson gets it right with her collection of handmade finishing touches for the Eco-Beautiful bride.
“Artfully constructed” with just the right amount of sparkle, her designs dainty, oh-so feminine, and equally pretty with a veil or without. So stylish!

Held at the Arista Winery in Healdsburg, California, Hyun Jee + Nithan’s wedding was a multicultural explosion of different traditions, food, and outfits, including three different ceremonies! Their wedding day was packed with PETA-friendly dog treats, lots of vineyard wine, and DIY invites and programs, and an indulgent menu of foods ranging from Asian finger food to Indian dips that offered guests a taste of their worlds…
Love the pups!

With stunning Utah mountain views as their backdrop, Amna + Heiko gathered an intimate circle of sixty together to celebrate their wedding day. With a rich color palette of golds and burgundy that paid homage to the bride’s Pakistani heritage, handmade jewelry from South Asia and wedding favors crafted locally by their wedding venue (yummy bon bons and oven-roasted granola), it was all about the details…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Amna + Heiko!

Our EIC, Katie Martin, is forever giving back.
As a teenage missionary, Katie met so many special people. Over the years, she’s kept in touch with many of them, but the most special of all of those relationships is with Wendy – who she met in a bible study. The two girls are now women with little girls of their own, and though they live thousands of miles apart, Katie and Wendy maintain a special place in each others hearts.
Wendy’s daughter, Gema, was born with hip dysplasia. Misdiagnosed by doctors, her condition was treated with antibiotics which caused Gema to lose her hearing. In 2008, funds were raised to bring Gema to Maryland for a corrective hip surgery that gave her the chance to live as a normal girl.
Six years later, Gema requires a follow-up surgery to alleviate her excruciating physical pain and to enable her to walk on her own. Just a short week ago, Katie launched an incredible campaign for this very resilient and sweet little girl. Now she needs your help to raise the funds necessary to cover Gema’s medical expenses for her surgery, as well as the travel costs to bring her and her mom from the Dominican Republic to Holy Cross Hospital for what we hope will be the last time.
Every donation will bring Gema one step closer to the life she deserves. With your help, her walk will be so much easier.
