We’re sharing behind the scenes details from Becca and Louie’s eco-friendly wedding at Oakleaf Cottage, an off the beaten path wedding venue nestled in the woods of Trenton, Georgia. Oakleaf features 28 acres of lush forest grounds, two outdoor ceremony sites, an upscale barn structure for indoor affairs, and endless fresh air.
For favors, Becca and Louie gave guests native wildflower seeds so they could enjoy the beautiful blooms but also support local pollinator populations. Even their rings are eco-friendly! Louie wore his late-father’s wedding band and Becca’s ring was made with moissanites rather than diamonds.
Having a green wedding might seem daunting but it really is just making small, meaningful choices along the way. Reusing instead of buying new, going plastic free, and asking your vendors to make earth-friendly choices when possible.
