Wedding Wines: 2012 Chateau Red from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery

francis ford coppola winery chateau red eco friendly weddings green weddings w

When the time comes to raise the glasses and toast at the reception, what will the libation of choice be?  If it’s wine, we’d like to be your eco sommelier, and recommend the latest release from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, the 2012 Chateau Red. 

A new addition to the winery’s Votrè Santé collection, this wine blends modern and traditional in the best of ways.  Inspired by Francis’s late paternal grandmother, Maria Zasa, who began a family tradition of toasting, “a votrè santé,” which means “to your health,” each time she raised a glass.  The 2012 Chateau Red offers a modern touch with a trendy blend of Rhône grapes, carefully sourced from warm and cool climate appellations.  Black cherry, currant and plum flavors mingle with more smoky notes to make this wine ideal for a decadent fall wedding meal.  We gave it a whirl with some delicious cheeses this weekend and it was perfect. The wine is so beautifully bottled and packaged too!

The 2012 Chateau Red and other wines from the Votrè Santé collection are available online at franciscoppolawinery.com.

Real Wedding: Jess + Nick

Real Wedding Jess Nick Hawaii Outdoor Eco Friendly Weddings Green Weddings Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine

Marine biologists Jess and Nick’s love for water, the environment and Hawaii created the perfect wedding celebration setting. The self-described science geeks have done several science studies near the Hawaiian coastline, so they envisioned a wedding day that encompassed as much of the island as possible.  It certainly shows!  From the themed invitations and programs (created by eco designer Bella Figura) to pineapple-accented bouquets and centerpieces to the authentic hula dancers, Jess and Nick’s Florida celebration was so Hawaiian, their guests had no choice but to hang loose. The couple even provided eco-friendly mosquito repellant to keep everyone bite free!

Fall Inspired Seating

Fall Seating Escort Cards Place Cards Eco Friendly Weddings Green Weddings

Fall is a season that offers an abundance of décor inspiration, so let’s start with escort and place cards! Using mini pumpkins, leaves or even acorns to show your guests to their seats is a fun way to add a bit of fall fun to a reception. And if you absolutely can’t decide which of these ideas you love more, use one option for the reception, and the other for the rehearsal dinner or send-off brunch.
