Molly and Ben chose a wedding venue close to their hearts—a New Hampshire estate that has been in the groom’s family for four generations. 100 acres of pristine sloping hills leaning towards the Connecticut river, the property encompasses 11 summer homes, yet it is a well-kept secret from passersby.
After deciding on a “naturally elegant” theme for their special day, the couple enlisted the help of Ben’s aunts to design the wedding flowers, all of which were picked from nearby fields. The family’s weathervane was used for the logo on napkins and placesettings, and the celebration was kept as eco as possible with reusable materials and glassware.
Many Eco- Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Molly and Ben!

Some little girls have visions of grand weddings, surrounded by lots of family and friends, while others dream of a simpler day, with a celebration made just for two. This week’s featured bride, Natalie, was that girl with the simple dream, so she and her groom, Brett, opted for a small, intimate ceremony atop the mountains in Costa Rica…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Natalie + Brett!

Guaranteed you (and your hostesses) will speak to your guests a lot on your wedding day, but signage can provide you with a little help! Signs are a really fun and creative way to communicate with your guests, giving them guidance on everything from where to sit during the ceremony, where to find the photo booth, and what’s yummy on the menu for dinner. Signs are also great décor, so they serve two purposes.
To keep your signage eco-friendly, find handmade ones in online marketplaces such as Etsy or create your own using recycled wood, fabrics, or other materials. We love the idea of using the chalkboard too—you’ll use less paper and have something useful at home after the wedding!
We have a lovely styled shoot to share today from Huffman Weddings!
The eco-inspired shoot came together in Colorado and it’s just beautiful. The photographer and event designer worked with all local vendors (like Bella Moon Cakery–yum!), and the pottery and wood tables are handcrafted.
The woods created the perfect backdrop for this lush palette of greens and purples, which really pops against the natural elements. We love the succulents in the centerpieces—so gorgeous!
When a sustainability consultant bride and a groom studying forestry engineering decide to get married, an Eco-Beautiful Wedding is bound to follow!
Kaitlyn and Tom’s wedding day was the first powered by Bullfrog, a Canadian green energy supplier. The couple opted to incorporate lots of eco details into their day, including a hemp and eco-silk dress for the bride, wedding bands made from recycled gold (from their families’) and a registry of locally-produced gifts. Love it!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Kaitlyn and Tom!

Mara and Michael held their wedding and reception at The Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta. Built in 1921, this historic space was a perfect complement to this couple’s traditional Jewish celebration.
Mara and Michael undoubtedly honored tradition, yet created a day with a modern and eco feel. Love their centerpieces made from natural and recycled materials, including wrapped bark and wine barrel lids!
Many Eco Beautiful Wedding wishes to Mara and Michael!
