NYC bride and groom Anna + Stephan chose a nearby island along the St. Lawrence River (Anna’s grandparents have a home there) for their eco-fun wedding day. The entire wedding was DIY by the bride, friends and family, and the love shows in the details. The reception food was sourced locally, with a few additions from a few guests. Anna’s third grade students even chipped in and grew the garlic featured in the gumbo. Adorable!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Anna + Stephan!

For an Eco-Beautiful wedding, enviornmentally-UNfriendly balloons are a no-no. But that doesn’t mean your venue ceilings need to be bare, either.
From borrowed vintage umbrellas to upcycled material, the sky’s the limit when it comes to decking out the ceremony or reception space.
Keep your guests looking up at with some creative and fun options that are eco-friendly and won’t break the budget!

Courtney + Joe met each other in high school, but didn’t start dating until college. The couple gathered a super fun group of guys and gals, family and other VIPs to celebrate their love with a spring wedding at The Oaks at Windsong, a beautiful property sprawled across acres and acres of grassy fields with tall oak trees.
Their Victorian Country style reception was infused with vintage touches and natural materials—lace, burlap, wood, lanterns and yummy antique finds (the bride combed antique and thrift stores for assorted china saucers for the wedding cake). All of these elements intertwined with beautiful florals under a canopy of twinkling lights made for an amazing night.
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Courtney + Joe!
