Real Wedding: Katrina + Sean

Real Weddings Eco Friendly Green Weddings Hawaii Island Outdoor Weddings Katrina Sean Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine

Lovebirds Katrina and Sean met in college, became friends, and have been having a blast together ever since.  For their outdoor wedding last year, they wanted to keep it simple—a location that was naturally beautiful and didn’t need much.  The result?  An intimate and elegant celebration in their very own home state of Hawaii! Isn’t it wonderful when you can find this kind of beauty in your own backyard? Way to keep the carbon footprint low too!

The bride’s sister designed the beautiful bouquets and arrangements which complemented the neutral and white palette oh so well.

Unintentionally, their day took on a country chic theme with centerpieces in silver pails and mason jars, globe lights  and a drink table propped on wooden crates.

 And Katrina and Sean creatively added  a pop of color with yellow and pink locally-made popsicles and bottled sodas and a cupcake display. Very cool!

Take a Seat

Escort Cards Reception Eco Friendly Green Weddings DIY

We love it when brides and grooms get creative with escort card displays!  One of our recently featured couples incorporated trees into their winter-themed display, while this pretty style shoot incorporated veggies into its vintage, eco theme.

Escort cards can serve dual purposes (say seating and favors) and they make great DIY projects too.  To display them, you may choose a bit of vintage lace for your display, a repurposed window or fun drinks to welcome your guests to their seats for the next phase of your wedding celebration. 

Have fun with it!

Pelcor Happiness!

Pelcor Bags

No matter what time of the year it is – you always need totes!  Pelcor has come up with the most versatile bag that I absolutely adore!  Their Sunshine tote is perfect for so many things – but especially a bride on the go or on her honeymoon.  It comes in these colors above and super cute vibrant pink too.

I have been using the tote as my purse, diaper bag and grocery store tote all in one.  It is heavy duty and made with cork and sustainable materials.  Cork has been tested over time to have a durability and lifetime span of 250-350 years.  I adore this bag and Robin has even commented on it as I rarely ever use purses.  This one has made the switch for me!

I love Pelcor as it is a company with a vision that includes design, innovation and sustainability.  They even contribute to the renewal of the Portuguese cork oak forests.  The Pelcor brand and its accessories are iconic in Portugal and their style and sustainability spans across the globe.  They even make corks for some of the most amazing wines and champagne brands in France! 

Check out all of their products here!
