Fall is such a gorgeous time of year in the north, and this wedding pretty much has the perfect autumn wedding venue. The trees are so golden and picturesque! Not only is the place stunning, but this couple is pretty sweet too. They took a lot of thought into making sure their day was as eco-friendly as possible. This couple proves that you can help the earth a little and look fantastic doing it!
From the dapper groom, Owen:
Right from the beginning, we knew that having an environmentally conscious wedding was not just important, but essential. That's why Harrington Farm was the perfect location. They serve local, organic food and get energy from a nearby wind turbine. Our good friend Yvette runs a website dedicated to sustainable design, and she designed all our invitations and Save the Date cards, using recycled paper and the most environmentally friendly inks.
As usually happens, we ended up with more invitations than we needed. So Rebecca took the extras, and cleverly using some glue and an ink stamp, created our place cards! We reduced waste, and as an added bonus everything matched the color scheme.
Once all the important stuff was done, and the day finally arrived, we were finally ready to relax and celebrate. From day one, finding just the right band was at the top of our list. Soul Kitchen was perfect. They were upbeat and fun and kept everyone's feet moving all night long. Developed during many years of Thanksgiving preparations, the Milburys have a tradition of singing Motown into spatulas and cooking spoons. As a welcoming gift into the crazy family, Rebecca was presented with her own engraved spatula, and everyone stood and sang "My Girl" while the band played on. We couldn't have asked for a better ending!
