Earth Day Eco-Friendly wedding in DC

Katie Martin, of Elegance and Simplicity, cares about our environment. She cares so much so that she created a group of wedding vendors that offer eco-friendly products and are using environmentally-friendly practices in their business. That group is called the Green Wedding Consortium and in February we had a bridal show at the Decatur House. As a group, we decided to give away a free wedding to one couple and that couple would be married on April 22nd, Earth Day. That is exactly what happened last week when our winners, Dana and David were married. Green Wedding

And last but not least, I worked with my good friend and extremely talented photographer Tom Van Veen of Documentary Associates to cover this wedding.

A funny moment during the ceremony when David decided it would be better for the congregation to sing one of their songs:

The couple took a pedi-cab from the church to the recpetion, a very eco-friendly commute:
