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.”

Like newlyweds Gwen and Kevin, many couples are providing individual serving size sweets for their guests as wedding favors and special treats—like whoopie pies!  Butcher’s Farm Market made vanilla, chocolate and pumpkin flavored pies for this wedding.  Read more »

Real Wedding Inspiration: Gwen & Kevin

Posted on November 5th, 2011 by annalemberger

As soon as I heard Pennsylvania, farm and goats I knew this would be an unforgettable wedding. I was so right. This October I had the privilege of attending a beautiful fall wedding on the coveted farmlands near Newport, Pennsylvania. I had never met Gwen and Kevin (I went with one of their guests), the bride and groom, but I feel I really got to know them through the personal details of their intimate wedding. The ceremony took place inside the home of close friends–a farm house and converted church. Being so far from town, and therefore most people’s hotels, the couple arranged buses to get the guests to and from the wedding–a nice touch especially for those who took advantage of the open bar.  There were so many beautiful details that brought this wedding to life, but nothing was more lovely than the natural, stunning fall backdrop, except of course the couple.

I asked Gwen to share her wedding inspiration. Here is what she said.
