Eco Friendly California Wedding with Marsala | Published in Ruffled!
Somebody pinch me! I feel like I am dreaming 🙂 I am so very honored and excited that the hard work and creative ideas of our team – Chico Wedding Collective – have been PUBLISHED in RUFFLED!! This all started with the very sweet and talented Jennifer Rodriguez of Eco Peach Events, contacting me back in winter. We met for tea, and chatted about her vision of a styled shoot. A styled shoot that promotes eco friendly and sustainable wedding design . And featured Pantone’s color of the year – Marsala.
Her words say it best…
‘Our styled shoot is called “Marsala Goddess,” inspired by Pantone’s 2015 color of the year “Marsala”. Our motto is breaking wedding rules! That’s right, we want to break all the rules (troublemakers). We love untraditional design. Our creative direction was eclectic, boho, and sustainable. Not only does this shoot combine rad wedding artists but, we are trying to promote love + awareness about sustainable weddings. We want all couples + wedding industry professionals to know that you don’t have to sacrifice style by going green. Sustainable weddings are just as beautiful + great for the environment + your local economy! Everyone who contributed in this collaborative styled shoot is a Chico, Ca wedding industry professional from the handmade upcycled dress to the handmade raw copper jewelry + momma moon wind chime! Our shoot was ZERO-WASTE. We composted, recycled, reused, + donated.’ – Jennifer Rodriguez
It was such an amazing process being involved with everyone and I love being a part of this team. I am so very grateful for each of you!
