One of our readers, Aileen was kind enough to share some beautiful photos from her eco-friendly wedding in Connecticut this past August. They were married at Castle Craig in a lovely outdoor reception, which required no decorating due to the natural beauty of the grounds. Aileen is a highly creative and talented individual and therefore was able to incorporate a lot of DIY projects that not only reduced the environmental impact of her wedding but also kept her overall wedding expenses down. I was blown away when I saw all that she did! Through her creativity and design she was able to incorporate her Japanese heritage and I must say her work paid off, as her wedding was absolutely stunning.
Not only were the flowers and decor eco-friendly but they also provided their guests with local, edible candies from Lamothe’s Sugar House and kept their guests informed through their wedding website. You can check out more photos on our facebook page but I thought I would leave you with a little advice from Aileen:
“It’s your day. Do as you want and envision. Don’t worry about breaking traditions or doing something new or unusual. The most important thing, in the end, is that you are married to the man you love and everything else is just window dressing. If you are having fun and enjoying yourself so will everyone else. And being different is fun! 🙂 “
