Real Wedding: Jennifer & Andrew

The emphasis at this gorgeous wedding was the natural world. Jennifer and Andrew are free spirited souls with a strong sense of green living, and they reinforced this through the detailing on their big day. From the mossy centerpieces, to the national park setting, the bride's eco-friendly engagement ring, and the simple seasonal flower bouquets, the happy couple had one eye on romance and the other on sustainability. Inspired? Check out the Green Bride Guide for advice, use pots of plants rather than cut flowers, buy your bridesmaids' gowns second-hand, and save energy by lighting the ceremony with candles. Throw in a wedding breakfast made with locally grown food, and you'll be the perfect eco-couple. Gorgeous pictures as ever from the girls at Simply Bloom.

Message from the happy couple about Jennifer's eco-friendly engagement ring: "Andrew gave Jennifer a sapphire engagement ring on September 5th, 2008, at the chapel at Camp Comer. The ring contains five stones (one sapphire and four diamonds). All of the stones were ethically sourced: the diamonds from Canada and the sapphire from Sri-Lanka. The white gold used to make the ring is renewed gold, or recycled. Additionally, the company provides each ring in a wooden box and prints all certificates of authentication on recycled paper with recycled ink."
