Duncan’s Homestar Runner backpack caught Kari’s eye in high school, but his sense of humor and sweetness caught her heart. After a pizza, Pirates of the Caribbean and some Jack Sparrow-inspired flirt fighting led to an accidental first kiss, the two found love!
And then came a wedding cake made from brie cheese (we just had to share that insanely tasty tidbit!).
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Kari + Duncan!

Kari + Duncan captured their guests’ well wishes on this alternative to a traditional guest book! We are sure this is hanging beautifully in their home already.
This couple’s wedding, held in June of this year, had a few more eco elements that we’ll share this week!

Summer is in full swing and these sizzling, sunny days are urging us to let some sunshine in! There is something about feeling extra pretty in the summer, so we wanted to share a few of our favorite new things to make it easy.
And, if you are headed on a vacay soon, you’ll want to pack these goodies to take along!
Pelcor’s Sunshine Tote (online at Pelcor.com)
We love these bright cotton canvas totes! This roomy bag was made for fun in the sun, and the inside pockets are great for those smaller essentials.
Zoya Nail Polish (Salons and spas nationwide and ZOYA.com)
Zoya is good for you and good on you! Totally upgrade your mani and pedi with a pop of color with their toxin-free polish. It’s also safe for mommies-to-be!
Let this make your constant summer shaving a little more polished with Whish’s formula just for the ladies. The coconut and jojoba seed oils hydrate the skin so you can skip the extra moisturizer afterwards and the flavors are so yummy!
Wet Brush’s Natural Brush (at professional salons nationwide and wetbrush.com)
Keep this brush in the beach bag! It was created especially for tangled hair, so you can gently brush through your hair with damage or breaking. Works on all hair textures, too.
Get your glow on with this luxurious moisturizer. It’s formulated with the highest level of plant-based phytoestrogens along with peptides, proteins and nourishing ingredients to stimulate collagen and restore your skin’s vitality after spending days in the sun.
hello Toothpastes (Target, Target.com, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Stop n’ Shop and other retailers nationwide)
Did you know many of your favorite toothpaste brands contain artificial sweeteners? Say goodbye to those and hello to these natural options! Available in Supermint, Pink Grapefruit Mint and Mojito Mint, hello toothpastes prevent cavities and strengthen enamel without all of the chemical yuck.
Mineral Fusion Lipsticks (Whole Foods and online at MineralFusion.com)
Grab one of these 100% vegan and gluten-free lipsticks from Mineral Fusion in one of the new summer shades (the Melon is gorg). These are infused with antioxidants like Pomegranate and other natural conditioners like Shea Butter and Jojoba. Smooth, supple lips are a summer must-have!
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne affects over 40 million Americans. Nearly 85 percent of all people have acne at some point in their lives, so whether those pesky pimples have been a pain for years or have popped up more recently, you’re not alone. And, the good news—there are chemical-free products out there to help!
We’ve tried a few eco-friendly acne-fighters this summer, so we’ll share a few faves in the next few weeks. Here’s our first pick to help banish the breakouts before your wedding day!
A skin-perfecting tinted skin enhancer that creates a flawless finish as it moisturizes and treats acne prone skin, while fighting future breakouts. Long wear, natural coverage conceals imperfections instantly, helping to diminish the appearance of blemishes, pores, acne scars and uneven skin tone for a smooth, matte, flawless finish.
