Adriana + Ro initially met during their first year at UCLA. The two exchanged smiles and laughs at social events, but kept their distance. Mutual friends and kismet would cross their paths again a few years later which sparked what they describe as “an ill-timed, casual, and wholly unintentional courtship that grew stronger than either of them could anticipate.” Emails kept them connected over 7000 miles as they both traveled internationally, and upon their return to the states, their first kiss sealed the deal…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Adriana + Ro!

Not even 7000 miles could keep this week’s featured couple apart.
We’re so happy they made their way back to each other, most importantly for love, but also for a beautiful wedding that we get to share with you to wrap up the week!

Eugenia Vasiliadis and Barbara Joy Kavchok, the mother and daughter team behind eco-glam bridal brand Eugenia Couture not only create gorgeous gowns, but in their Philadelphia design house honors the environment, too.
The designers take a “zero waste” approach to their wedding and special occasion gowns. Every scrap of fabric is used in some capacity—any remaining fabric from a gown is used as embellishment or detail on another. Eugenia Couture refuses to use the harsh chemicals, bleaches and dyes often used to make bridal gowns, and instead uses domestically-sourced natural materials like recycled burlap or natural, sustainable bamboo.
We love it when eco looks this lovely!

Amanda + Luke’s beautiful ranch wedding, originally published in our Spring 2011, is a perfect blend of rustic, vintage and elegance.
The wedding and reception took place in California, and the couple used quite a few nooks and crannies of their location to showcase its natural beauty and romantic wedding vision…

A historic mansion, shades of pink, flowing sweet tea lemonade (with a little kick) and lots of love set the stage for Andrea + Brian’s wedding day. Their wedding and reception were infused with eco-friendly sentiments–the bride collected vintage brooches from her grandmother, mother and mother-in-law for her bouquet and the groom made the wooden décor signs himself. All of the makings of a sophisticated, Southern celebration…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Andrea + Brian!
