Any day that sees us basking in some eco-friendly inspiration, we consider to be a very good day. Especially when that eco-friendly inspiration was oh-so-perfectly crafted by a dream team of Florida vendors.  That's a good day and then some.  Add to the mix the fab stylings of Wed Perfect, serious beauty expertise of Hope Henderson Artistry + Salon Tease and some downright amazing images from Luminaire Foto and, well.  It's a go green masterpiece.  See it all right here.

From Wed Perfect... Wed Perfect teamed up with the these Southwest Florida vendors to put on an eco-friendly photo shoot, featuring some amazing vendors who have eco policies in place, or who will work with eco-friendly packages. The goal of Wed Perfect is to provide full-service wedding and event planning to the eco-conscious bride, and to show that you can have an amazing "green" wedding without compromising style or vision. We chose the Naples Botanical Garden as our location, as they provide many organic and eco-friendly services to the community. The immense beauty of the location was ideal to create the perfect, natural backdrop for this shoot. In this photo shoot, we illustrated two looks for the modern bride. In one look, we showed a classic, eco-friendly look. This look featured natural colors such as white, ivory, sage green, pale pink and the like. This look is for that one might gravitate towards for a traditional green wedding. The second look was a modern, glamorous look. This look utilized the same white and ivory as before but was then complemented by a deep eggplant purple and various shades of green (from artichoke to acid). This look utilized most of the same materials and vendors as the first look, and was used to demonstrate that one can utilize all eco-friendly materials but still have a modern, high-style look to their wedding.
