Thank you so much to Matthew David Celebrations for inspiring this blog post on the use of eco-friendly and reusable creative ideas to adorn your wedding. In honor of Earth Day 2013, here's a look at a gorgeous Charleston, South Carolina wedding at the legendary River House at Lowndes Grove Plantation which featured many reusable eco-friendly details. From the 100% cotton aisle runner, to the southern wicker fans to the sustainable Chuppah design and floral arrangements, the entire event oozed southern charm made of all-natural matrials. Here's more:
- Vintage wood clothing pins were used to hold family photographs in front of simple eco-friendly white fabric
- Table seating arrangements were "written" on an old brass doorframe's window panes vs. a traditional throw-away paper placecard
- The decades-old chairs were made from the same family of wood as the 200 year-old oaks under which they sit
- Recycled glass water pitchers and glassware adorned the rustic wooden tables.
Lowndes Grove sits proudly along the banks of the Ashley River in historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina.
