It is Easy Being Green – New Eco Wedding Trends | Seattle Wedding Photographer

guilt free weddings

Mitzi and I hosted a Firstlight Photography booth at the Simply Organized Bride event in Ferndale  and were really inspired.  We are seeing the green wedding trend continuing stronger than ever and there are some very innovative new products – as well as some back to basics.

vanishing cups

Our friend Nick from Avenue Catering modeled the latest biodegradable cups from Eco Products .  While these won’t work for every wedding, they are an excellent alternative for outdoor weddings as well as cocktail cups.  Made from corn these will vanish in your compost in 45-60 days.

sustainably grown plates

Memorable Events and Catering brought an interesting alternative to the table.  Bambu brand compostable plates are stylish bamboo plates that are 100 % organic.  These  stylish settings compost in four to six months. They also have the best bamboo appetizer sporks and delicious edible spoons that can be used for sweet or savory recipes (their chocolate spoon filled with mousse was fabulous).

socially responsible chic

One of the most charming displays was Sweet Peas and Carrot Cake.  Nancy owns a sustainable flower farm and caters to weddings and special events.  If you choose, you can even hand pick flowers for your bouquet.  Nancy’s flower selections are not only a green alternative, but they are wonderfully unique and chic.

About Firstlight Photography

Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago. We both moved to Seattle in June of 1995- but it took until 2006 for us to actually meet. We saw the same concerts and we both had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to finally cross. When they did we had no idea that our careers would collide into a fabulous partnership. We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business. When we aren’t out on a photo shoot you can find us roller skating with our kids, hosting Martha Stewart eat your heart out dinners (Kier is the chef & Mitzi is the baker), watching movies -we share a love of “Strange Brew” (which should be slightly embarrassing, but we own it), or doing DIY projects with our insanely crafty kiddos. We are located between Seattle and Tacoma any frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California. You can book us for your destination wedding or event and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready). Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work. There is nothing more rewarding that receiving a note from a client’s mother thanking us for doing a great job on her daughter’s wedding photos. Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can devise a variety of package options.
