Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase

Last Sunday (not yesterday), we were one of the exhibitors at the first ever Mid-Atlantic Green Showcase. What a fun time! Run expertly by Lori Hill and a huge team of volunteers, the event was so smooth and seamless.

All the vendors involved showcased their green initiatives or products. Caterers had yummy locally-sourced food for brides to sample, stationers showcased recycled papers and we talked to couples about the "100 mile" events we've done and the ways we reduce waste at weddings.

We were lucky enough to be across from Design Cuisine and their Baked Alaska Brownie Sticks (one of my all-time favorite desserts) so we stayed on a sugar high most of the day. We've done a few locally-sourced weddings with Design Cuisine where everything comes from farms or bodies of water within one hundred miles and we love how they have been pushing their events to be more green.

A big thanks to everyone who put on such a fun show and to all the brides who came out to support eco-friendly wedding vendors.
