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!

Honeymoon Swimwear from Qispi Kay

Qispi Kay Eco Friendly Green Swimwear Bathing Suits Honeymoon Eco Friendly Wedding

If you’re headed to a warm-weather destination for your honeymoon, you’ll need swimwear of course!  Let’s keep it eco in Qispi Kay, an eco-friendly Peruvian swimwear designer that specializes in the sexy bikini.   

The swimsuits are cut and sewn by hand by skilled craftswomen in Peru, using Brazilian and South American materials.  Some of the designs are also hand-embroidered, using traditional Peruvian techniques.  And knowing that is a no-no to have two women hit the pool or beach in the same suit, Qispi Kay only creates a limited amount of each style, so you know you’ll be the only one in that color/print and cut combination.

Qispi Kay is a socially conscious company that not only supports the local Peruvian economy by employing local craftswomen, but also by promoting charity work on a global scale. 

Check out more Qispi Kay on their website!

Real Wedding: Crystal + Dan

Real Wedding Crystal Dan Costa Rica Beach Green Weddings Eco Friendly Eco Beautiful Weddings

Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica was the setting for Crystal and Dan’s intimate and naturally beautiful wedding day.  They celebrated with family, friends and their baby boy Beckett, creating an event that was creative, personal and special–everything a wedding day should be.  Some of the eco-details of their day included locally-made teak benches for the beach ceremony, an aisle lined with driftwood posts and salvaged beach glass bottles and Crystal’s fresh bridal bouquet that was accented with mini kumquat fruit.  Another eco touch dotted the reception guest tabled with mason jars and bottles, and guests were thanked by the couple with fun monogrammed bags that can be reused over and over!
