Recently, Devin and Joe asked me to help them create their reception in the historic Kelton House in Columbus, Ohio, using antique china platters with various eco-friendly elements. Bamboo plates and service ware and glass Mason jars were used for the guests’ individual place settings to support the couple’s personal quest to protect and be respectful of the environment. They were glad to use biodegradable place settings and as one of their guests jokingly commented, holding up his plate, “I know Devin had something to do with this!”
Majestic purple, spring green and vintage ivory with warm, soft candlelight and natural wildflowers, perfectly complemented the ambiance of the carriage house and terrace.
Guests were able to write their wedding wishes on flat, natural colored rocks. A win win – an extension of an important element in their beautiful, outdoor wedding ceremony, less use of paper and messages inspiring conversations for years to come.
When planning your wedding, be creative, explore options and be inspired not only by your dreams, but your personal interests and beliefs. Your wedding memories will be even more personal and closer at heart.
