6 things that make a great Open Image wedding: (Go Green Post)
It was very important to Erin & Chris to have a eco friendly “Green” wedding, so I thought I would share with you some of the things they did!
1) Wedding favours were handmade, supporting Sweetacre Apiaries in the Shuswap region of BC. Bill and Maria Stagg are awesome because they are family run business, teach beekeeping classes, and are one of the few producers of hard chemical and pesticide free honey in the West, essentially the purest honey around, since that region is almost entirely GMO-free. They sent Erin & Chris a huge 37lb bucket of honey via greyhound!
2) Save the Date announcement was created with a low tech stop action video, for more information http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjkUSvH_yU8
3) Invitations were made using Paper Culture, a stationary business committed to sustainability. All of their personalized stationery products, invitations and announcements are printed using 100% post-consumer recycled paper, meaning no new trees were cut down to produce the cards. As part of every order placed, they plant a tree. Paper Culture has pledged to plant over 1,000,000 trees, and are thrilled to announce that they have planted over 300,000 to date.
4) Dress was purchased from The Brides’ Project in Toronto, a donated/consignment dress store giving all proceeds to cancer research.
5) Flowers were ‘local’ seasonals.
6) Cake topper was made by a local artist.
Congratulations Erin and Chris!
