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!

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!
