Real Wedding Inspiration: Lauren & Brian

Posted on December 20th, 2012 by annalemberger

‘Tis the season for giving – which makes this a perfect time to share an amazing story of two newlyweds and their inspiring Give Back Wedding!

Lauren and Brian were married this past July at the Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge in Breckenridge, Colorado. This couple’s special day was full of love and laughter, captured beautifully by Lisa Meeter of Lisa Anne Photography. It’s hard not to be joyful when you know your wedding is making such a difference!  Lauren and Brian knew having a big wedding was important to their loved ones; however, they wanted to make sure that they stayed true to their values as environmentally conscious teachers committed to working with at risk students. And so the “Give Back Wedding” was born. Every detail – from the biodegradable cupcake wrappers to the Colorado wildflower bouquets – gave back, in one way or another, to something this couple cares about:

“Brian and I felt so blessed to have found this love that we wanted to share our love and happiness with the rest of the world. We wanted our love to make a difference in the hearts of others in the same way that it had in our very own.”

Color Splash: Solar Power Wedding Inspiration

Posted on December 5th, 2011 by annalemberger

Keep warm this winter or plan ahead for your spring wedding with a sunny yellow color splash. The color experts and trend setters at Pantone have chosen Solar Power as one of the colors for Spring 2012. It is difficult not to smile or feel unloved when surrounded in this warm color. Make the stunning rays of this color truly stand out by pairing with a cooler tone, like silver. Pantone’s “Solar Power” provides more than a color inspiration; go green at your wedding by using solar powered accent lights or by letting natural sunlight illuminate your wedding.
