A Fabulous (Eco-friendly) Fall Wedding

I love it when I work with some couples and they become more than clients. We become friends along the way as I learn what really makes them, well… them. And we navigate potentially stressful waters together in the wedding planning process while selecting beautiful details and wonderful vendors to help visions become realities.

Tara + Dylan were that type of couple. In fact, I’m feeling a bit of withdrawal from our many email, text and phone conversations we had over the course of about 10 months planning their beautiful Botanical Garden wedding in Athens, Georgia. It’s interesting that I consider them friends, especially since we only actually met in person a total of about 5 times, including their wedding day. Because they were planning their wedding from Seattle and had a very, very busy and tight schedule. But they’re just so warm and friendly … you can’t not love them!

What I especially enjoyed with this wedding is created a truly personalized experience for them, making sure we did everything possible to make the wedding eco friendly. Doing things like creating as little waste as we could manage, using custom pottery vases pieces from local floral designer and artist Tammy Nance for vases (which also doubled as bridesmaid gifts and keepsakes for the bride + groom), using compostable and eco materials in every way possible, and using local resources for everything from food to flowers and everything in between, it was not only a gorgeous evening, but it was also a conscientiousness wedding!

So without any more delay, enjoy these extraordinary moments and details from the day…
