Added elements included glorious and romantic ornamental hairstyles by Rhode Island Wedding Hair and utterly soft feminine makeup by JMVMakeup Studio with a dazzling finishing touch by Hannah Florman rings.

While sustainability is often coupled with a modern or minimalist design aesthetic, we loved showcasing that a conscious wedding can be romantic, opulent, or any other style a couple is drawn to.
