Green Weddings on Portovert
February 29, 2008

I have been a huge fan of Portovert for some time now...and I am so excited to see that their new, green inspired wedding site is really developing into something special!

Their real wedding section has two spectacular affairs that are organic in that insanely beautiful, elegant way. This first featured wedding for interior designer, Carla Lane, is absolutely beautiful. Lane is best known for mixing vintage items in a fresh, modern setting and her wedding incorporated beautiful, sustainable details throughout. The wedding cake, inspired by sustainable designer Jonathan Adler, features a small Adler vase with flowers on top; the ceremony and reception took place under the California sky; to shelter the young and old, umbrellas were handed out; sustainable succulents were used as table centerpieces.

This next event, held by Michael, the owner of Mount View Hotel and Spa, a historic hotel in Calistoga, and Stephanie, an artist from New York, featured their wedding at a private, organic Napa Valley Vineyard in California. Photographer, Meg Smith, captured these stunning images...


If you haven't already, spend some time looking around the Portovert site. Their Look Book has great sustainable (and yet beautiful) wedding elements, the articles are filled with tips and advice and their blog is an absolute delight. Thank you so much to Portovert for creating such a lovely, oh-so-important resource for the chic, modern bride!!
