The photoshoot took place on the most beautiful summer day at the Keeler Tavern in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Having worked with Amy Champagne Events and Ashley Therese Photography for their real wedding in 2012, Nicole & Oli St. Onge signed on to be models for this exciting project. The tablescape consisted of a barn wood reclaimed wood table, with a table runner of Connecticut local Caladium base with the clippings of cherry blossoms on top and gold mercury glass votives nestled between the branches. Centerpieces were potted azalea plants that were planted after the photoshoot. On top of the gold stamped linen napkins sat organic handmade soaps that served as favors. We wanted to try something completely different with the escort cards. We learned that scallions or green onions will regrow as long as they are placed in water, which we thought was a cool concept so we made them into escort cards in bud vases with instructions attached on how to care for them on the menu card. Paper goods were made of seed paper, and the cake was made of local and organic ingredients.

Don’t you love that everything used in this shoot was upcycled, reclaimed, sustainable, organic, and locally grown and made? You really can have a lovely wedding while being socially conscious, eco-friendly, and leaving a low carbon footprint. Job well done to all of the amazing vendors involved, which you can find below! So, who is going to use this to inspire a spring event of their own?
