Real Wedding: Shay + Joe

Real-Weddings-Shay-Joe-Green-Weddings-Eco-Friendly-Weddings-Cultural-Weddings

Shay and Joe met at a yoga class, and their wedding reflected everything the practice embodies—the gentle calm of natural surroundings, traditions and love. The couple highlighted the blending of their families and cultures with both Persian and Asian wedding traditions throughout the day. Held at The Environmental Nature Center, a hidden gem in Newport Beach, it was all about the beauty of nature and the beauty of two families becoming one.

Real Wedding: Jesse + Kevin

Real-Weddings-Jesse-Kevin-Eco-Friendly-Weddings-Green-Weddings-Outdoor-Weddings

This wedding had soul- and lots of it. Jesse + Kevin tied the knot at Brahma Ridge Event Center in the mountains of North Carolina, and their day was filled from beginning to end with personal and eco-friendly touches made by family and friends. The day began with the bride in a family heirloom silk wedding dress that had been worn by five women in her family and for the ceremony, she donned gold family heirloom jewelry and a second previously owned ivory silk wedding dress. The couple’s dog stepped up as ring bear, the bride’s dad handcrafted a beautiful escort card tree, Mom shopped at thrift stores and flea markets to create the collection of vintage bottles and china and an aunt made the wedding cake.  Jesse + Kevin also created a sweet off-shoot of off the main tent that included hand made nook filled with photos of the bride & groom and their families.

A true family affair!
