It’s a fall Friday, so an Eco-Beautiful wedding in the woods is a great way to start the day!
As this couple approaches their one year anniversary this month, we thought it would be a great fall wedding to share. Adrienne and Rodger really embraced a natural and rustic theme for their wedding. Truly a conscious couple, their day was so reflective of what was meaningful to them. Just a few of the details…
In preparation for the ceremony, the groom crafted the wood dining tables for the reception by hand. As if that’s not awesome enough, Rodger also built a bread oven, which he used to bake fresh bread for the reception…on the morning of the wedding. Incredible!
The bride opted to start her day with a relaxing yoga session with her bridal party….
The intimate ceremony took place in a woody enclave, and the reception was topped off with paella, prepared by a local chef and served family style.
This was such an authentic and personal day for Adrienne and Rodger, and we thank them for sharing with us! Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding (and anniversary) wishes to the two of you!

Guaranteed you (and your hostesses) will speak to your guests a lot on your wedding day, but signage can provide you with a little help! Signs are a really fun and creative way to communicate with your guests, giving them guidance on everything from where to sit during the ceremony, where to find the photo booth, and what’s yummy on the menu for dinner. Signs are also great décor, so they serve two purposes.
To keep your signage eco-friendly, find handmade ones in online marketplaces such as Etsy or create your own using recycled wood, fabrics, or other materials. We love the idea of using the chalkboard too—you’ll use less paper and have something useful at home after the wedding!
More Bridal Fashion Week goodness caught by the Eco-Beautiful stylecam! These stunning gowns hit the runway of the Ines DiSanto Spring 2013 show this past weekend. Ines DiSanto’s gowns are quintessential bridal—feminine, romantic, and glamorous. Crafted nearby in Canada, Ines DiSanto’s designs are made from some of the most beautiful silks and fabrics, and the construction is always impeccable. With as much focus on the back of the gown as the front, these gowns are detailed with luxe additions such as lace and beading. We’re still swooning over that sparkly bodice!
We’re continuing our Bridal Fashion Week recap with some shots from the Anne Barge runway show! Thanks to our Editor-in-Chief’s style cam, we can share a few of the gorgeous gowns from the Spring 2013 collection. Anne Barge is a veteran designer, so trust that when it comes to creating a glam bridal vision, her gowns hit the mark. While Anne Barge gowns are worn by brides all over the globe, her company is based in Atlanta, Georgia and the gowns are made in Canada.
A blend of romantic and classic, this collection gave us texture, classic silhouettes, and even some art deco detail. And that veil! Loved it!
Stay tuned–we’ll be back with more from Bridal Fashion Week!

Today’s featured couple, Brooke and Donny, truly live a very green lifestyle! This couple’s passion for the environment is evident—they’ve established a rockin’ nonprofit (The Grow Initiative) through which they travel to impoverished countries all over the world and led improvement initiatives focused on community health, sustainable agriculture and education.
Brooke and Donny’s “green love” inspired them to create a very green wedding day, including using wood and river rocks from their own yard to create centerpieces and a super cute ring pillow!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Brooke and Donny!
