Pictures Are In! Wed Altered Recap

A few weeks ago, I showcased my wedding dresses at Wed Altered: a pop-up bridal boutique featuring eco-friendly, ethical designers. The show was a huge success and I loved hanging out with other industry professionals who I admire (to see a full list of designers who participated in the event, visit the Wed Altered site).  Thank you to Alexis June Weddings for all the beautiful pictures of the event!

Me with the booth I staged it with Patina Vintage Rentals where I showcased different aspects of Winifred Bean. I loved how it turned out..

Weekly Wedding Look - Eco-Friendly Inspiration

I'm taking part in an event next weekend that I am really excited about -  Wed Altered - a pop up shop featuring socially conscious, earth friendly wedding dress and accessory designers. So, this week's Weekly Wedding Look is very close to my tree-hugging, hippie heart, and it features fellow earth-loving enthusiasts who are joining me at Wed Altered.  Everything from invitations you can plant to bags made out of recycled stuff, take a peak!
