Lovely bride Trish met her groom, David, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, Long Beach for their intimate wedding day. The bride sprained her ankle at the top of their wedding weekend, but the inseparable couple made a few slight adjustments, but kept things rolling just as planned…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Trish + David!

There’s a bit of chill in the air today on the east coast, so we’re already searching for signs of spring. In doing so, we checked in with invitation extraordinaire Minted, and came across their beautiful collection of hand-drawn invitation designs. Flowers, calligraphy, stripes…oh my!
What’s fantastic about Minted is the company is global community of indie designers, each bringing their own creativity and design aesthetic to a particular theme. That approach offers brides and grooms a wide variety of options for invites, and an opportunity to really find that ideal look for wedding stationery. And they offer recycled paper too!
Designer Deborah Lindquist uses sustainable, organic, and recycled fabrics such as organic cotton, linen and hemp to create her lovely bridal gowns and other eco-fashionable pieces. Deborah’s fabric selections also include “upcycled and reincarnated” options, including sonic fabric, which is an audible textile developed by artist Alyce Santoro and created from recycled recorded audio cassette tape. How amazing is that?
The dresses are made in the US too!

Molly and Ben chose a wedding venue close to their hearts—a New Hampshire estate that has been in the groom’s family for four generations. 100 acres of pristine sloping hills leaning towards the Connecticut river, the property encompasses 11 summer homes, yet it is a well-kept secret from passersby.
After deciding on a “naturally elegant” theme for their special day, the couple enlisted the help of Ben’s aunts to design the wedding flowers, all of which were picked from nearby fields. The family’s weathervane was used for the logo on napkins and placesettings, and the celebration was kept as eco as possible with reusable materials and glassware.
Many Eco- Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Molly and Ben!
