Melissa and Brian, along with 55 of their closest family and friends, married in the mountains of Deer Valley, Utah last winter. Desiring a day with a vintage feel, the couple chose a classic and elegant black and white color palette and décor, and allowed the beauty of the snowy mountains to showcase the day.
A few eco facts about their wedding:
Melissa wore a family treasure—her grandmother’s bracelet which each granddaughter in her family wears on their wedding day.
In lieu of favors, the couple donated money to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Cancer Center in honor of the groom’s cousin Jeff Albright who battled cancer as a child.
The reception meal, prepared fireside at the venue, included homemade fig mustard and strawberry chutney. Yum!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Melissa and Brian!

We’ll see you tomorrow for a bit of early winter wedding loveliness!

Avid hikers Nina and Sergey chose the mountains of Santa Cruz for their forest-themed wedding this summer. The décor elements included only natural materials—envelope-free invitations printed on eco paper, bamboo stands for the sweets, birch trunks etched with the locations of the couple’s favorite US hiking spots (reception table names!) moss and dried lavender.
Their vegetarian menu incorporated lots of local ingredients too!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Nina and Sergey!
