There are many benefits to using nonperishable flowers, including wilt-proof décor for your outdoor summer wedding and a reduction in carbon footprint by not importing flowers from other parts of the country or world. Nonperishable flowers travel well for destination weddings, are kind to the environment and can hold up to the elements. And you’ll have a keepsake for a lifetime!
The possibilities are endless for eco materials for your nonperishable blooms, too. Think wood, recycled paper, fabric, silk, jewels and actual dried flowers. The bouquet featured here also incorporates other nonperishable elements including pheasant feathers, curly willow branches, a studded leather strap and burlap. Lovely!

Photographer Kim Spears and Clare Day (floral designer and owner of Red Damsel Farm) share a passion for farm-to-table cuisine and local flowers. So they bought their creative powers together to design and capture a romantic, dusk garden style shoot that showcased the beauty of local seasonal flowers and farm goodies. The shoot features farm market finds including strawberries, turnips, and rhubarb, which became a key ingredient in a yummy Rhubarb Mint Mojito created just for the shoot.
From the touch of lace to the whimsical feathers and perfectly pink palette, romance is everywhere…

This bride and her groom were featured on our blog back in 2011! It was all about eco-friendly and cultural influences on the incredibly gorgeous island of Kauai.
While we shared many lovely details from their day, we found a few additional images in our lost files that reminded us of just how Eco-Beautiful Lauren + Mason’s wedding was…

“Even if the day doesn’t turn out exactly the way you had planned, just take a deep breath and know that your wedding day is once in a lifetime and it will be so special and memorable no matter what.”
Kristy + Bang originally planned for an intimate wedding celebration for ten, but once the planning got underway, things took a slightly different turn.
Within a short span of two months, the couple was all set with a beautiful venue, three dress changes and a much larger guest list. Of course there were a few hiccups along the way, but all that was important were the laughs, love and sentimental tears. Mission accomplished–the couple created a day that was undoubtedly special and memorable to them.
Love above all else. No matter what.
