Eco-chic wedding: Stephanie + Bobak

categories Real Weddings

Stephanie and Bobak planned their wedding with the intention of minimizing their impact on the environment as much as possible. Sometimes you don’t think about how, shall we say, wasteful a huge party can be. We’re all for cuteness as you know, but cuteness does often come with an environmental price, so it’s lovely to see a wedding where pretty details and eco-mindedness collide.

And the dress. We love her dress.

In keeping with their earth loving theme, they chose green and white as their colors. Their caterer served local, seasonal, organic food. The bouquets were made from local peonies and ranunculus, their invites printed by a green printer, and their wedding rings were made from recycled platinum and gold.

Their centerpieces consisted of glass and fabric from thrift stores, herbs from the farmer’s market and flowers from a local farm. The rest of the reception decor was made by the couple and their family and friends.

Beautiful wedding you two and major props for taking the low impact approach so seriously!

  1. Why oh why does that dress have to be Vera Wang? I think it would be perfect for my best friend’s fiancee. The empire waist is great on petite girls and it looks like it would match her style perfectly.

    I love the color scheme too and I might have to recommend that to her for their backyard wedding.

  2. her dress IS spectacular. can’t go wrong with vera wang!

  3. Beautiful. Gotta Love Eco Friendly.

  4. Very pretty! LOVE your dress Stephanie and the herb table top gardens… oh and the signage!

  5. I cannot get over how absolutely stunning the scenery is…I want to live there! L♥vely post!

  6. It is fantastic to see how obvious care for the environment can meld so well with a wedding event. The dress is stunning.

  7. I am absolutely in love with their centerpieces. With “green” weddings on the rise while the economy is still recovering, this would be a great option.

  11. Great Wedding! I’m planning mine and you have pointed me in the eco-friendly direction. It’s easy to get wrapped up in all the wedding hoop-la and forget about all the waste that it causes.

  18. The dress is PERFECTION! So lovely to see a beautifully executed green wedding. It was thought out so well with a sincere concern about the environment. I really love how even friends and family got involved. This is what weddings should be about.

  19. I never imagined that taking wedding pics at the forest is a perfect attraction…I was inspired by the photos above…Thanks for sharing those pictures…

  23. Wow. One of my favorites ever. I love chiffon dresses and green and white. Adore the setting.

  24. Oh. And the couple isn’t half bad either. Really cute. Love her hair.

  25. She looks absolutely gorgeous! Love the dress! I was looking at wedding dresses on a recent trip to the UK and saw an almost identical version of this one for sale at Coast for less than $500. It’s not on their website at the moment but for those of you who like this dress (I love it but I don’t want to wear strapless), you might keep your eyes open to see if it comes back into stock.

  26. Where did you get the green and white little pom-poms? Did you make those? Adorable! :)
