Real Wedding Rewind: Natalie + Brett

Real Wedding Natalie Brett Eco Friendly Green Weddings Elopement Costa Rica Outdoor Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine Sara Kauss Photography

Some little girls have visions of grand weddings, surrounded by lots of family and friends, while others dream of a simpler day, with a celebration made just for two.  This week’s featured bride, Natalie, was that girl with the simple dream, so she and her groom, Brett, opted for a small, intimate ceremony atop the mountains in Costa Rica…

It’s A Sign

signs wedding reception decor eco beautiful weddings

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!

A Wedding in the Woods

We have a lovely styled shoot to share today from Huffman Weddings!

The eco-inspired shoot came together in Colorado and it’s just beautiful.  The photographer and event designer worked with all local vendors (like Bella Moon Cakery–yum!), and the pottery and wood tables are handcrafted.

Real Wedding: Kaitlyn + Tom

Kandise Brown Tom Kaitlyn Eco Beautiful Weddings Green Weddings Canada Bullfrog

When a sustainability consultant bride and a groom studying forestry engineering decide to get married, an Eco-Beautiful Wedding is bound to follow!

Kaitlyn and Tom’s wedding day was the first powered by Bullfrog, a Canadian green energy supplier.  The couple opted to incorporate lots of eco details into their day, including a hemp and eco-silk dress for the bride, wedding bands made from recycled gold (from their families’) and a registry of locally-produced gifts.  Love it!

Real Wedding Rewind: Mara + Micheal

Berman Maze once like a spark photography atlanta wedding foundry puritan mill eco beautiful weddings

Mara and Michael held their wedding and reception at The Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta.  Built in 1921, this historic space was a perfect complement to this couple’s traditional Jewish celebration.

Mara and Michael undoubtedly honored tradition, yet created a day with a modern and eco feel. Love their centerpieces made from natural and recycled materials, including wrapped bark and wine barrel lids!
