Gorgeous Green

Here at balance, we are big fans of the Green Bride Guide. Author Kate Harrison and her staff of dedicated writers and designers do a terrific job making eco-friendly wedding/event options accessible and affordable to everyone. We had the pleasure of meeting Kate at last winter's Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase and she even autographed my copy of her book!

Well, as it turns out, one of the bloggers at the GBG is a fan of balance, too!

We were super excited recently to be included in Stephanie's blog about vintage birdcage veils. She used the images below, which were shot last year. All those incredible hairstyles were by Ashley Riddle, of Up Do's for I Do's fame, and the veils all came from our fave Ellicott City vintage shop, Retropolitan.

And then we were asked to submit a photo of the week, too, to be included on the cover of the website. Woo-hoo! This week's theme was beach weddings. Below are happy couple Derrick and Heather, who got married in Costa Rica! Heather's dress was gently used and her flowers were picked by the roadside. Supa green!

Thanks Stephanie & everyone at the Green Bride Guide for including balance on your site!
