Naturally Lovely

We're big fans of the Green Bride Guide. They offer easy-to-use resources to brides, their moms and event planners and showcase gorgeous green events for all to see.

We're even bigger fans, though, when one of our brides is showcased! Shauna and Brent were married last fall on 9-10-11 and had a very eco-chic wedding at Historic London Towne Gardens in Annapolis.

The venue was located on the water and one of the reasons they selected it was the natural beauty already in place.  Because the gardens and docks and buildings were so lovely already, fewer decorations were needed.

Shauna was also very creative in the decorations she did use - many were homemade or from artists on Etsy. And almost everything was multi-purpose: like using clementines as place card holders.

The couple also selected the greenest vendors possible. We adore the good folks over at Local Color Flowers. They use only flowers and foliage grown nearby in Maryland or Virginia. And as you can see, the arrangements were incredible...

 And the food - yea - that was eco-friendly too! Paul and his team of localvores at Dionysus' Kitchen created a feast for Shauna and Brent and their guests. Everything was served family-style, and as always, the meal was outstanding.

This event was magical in every way, and it's so exciting that such a warm, wonderful and green event is getting recognition from the Green Bride Guide.  Be sure to check out the post on the GBG site!

Congrats again, Shauna and Brent - we loved being part of your eco-wedding and wish you decades of happiness!
