“My dress was a beautiful Pronovias lace Edwardian reminiscent gown!  I wore the Lady Mary Wreath, inspired by Downton Abbey, and lace gloves to go along with the Edwardian theme.  I wore a vintage garter from the groom’s family.  I had beautiful purple shoes and my wedding gift was a purple diamond ring which matched my bridesmaids dresses! Both the bridesmaids and flower girls had lace and scalloping on their dresses to go along with mine.”

“Our wedding had a vintage feel to it, so we arrived in a Victorian style trolley rather than a limo.  We were married in an Armenian Church and had a very cultural and traditional ceremony including joining of the right hands, the crowning and the enthronement.  Since I am a vocal teacher, a choir of my students sang during the ceremony. My husband, a marching band director, surprised me with his marching band playing our wedding song after the ceremony!”

“We took our photos at a beautiful park and stopped at a pumpkin patch along the way! We also tried to keep our wedding as environmentally friendly as possible. Our flowers were all local, in season and pesticide free.”

“Our favors were bird seed hearts and escort cards were white pumpkins grown by my mother. Invitations were sent on recycled and seed paper!  We surprised our guests during our reception with a live band and had our friend, a Broadway star, sing a song set with them!”

“Pumpkin pie and apple cider doughnuts were served along with cake to wrap up the evening! Oh, and I can’t forget the crazy Armenian dancing! “

Your favorite part:
“My favorite part of the wedding was seeing all of our hard work pay off!  It was such a relief that everything went smoothly, and such a pleasure to see everything put into action!  People are still talking about the wedding and telling us it was one of the best they have ever been to.”

If you could change one thing about your wedding what would it be?
“We really wish that we were able to spend more time at cocktail hour.  By the time we got to it, the cocktail hour felt so rushed that it was a complete blur and we missed out on a lot of the amazing food we had previously been looking forward to.”

Advice for other brides:
“Honestly, having an eco-friendly wedding made everything easier. Besides being better for the earth, it makes all of your decisions easier. When trying to pick something out, rather than investigating 100 different options, all you have to do is figure out which is the most eco-friendly option and go with that!  Problem solved!”
