Eco-Friendly Wedding Celebration

Theresa and Giovanni wanted their wedding to be a family-centric and eco-friendly celebration, and we worked together to make it just that! Theresa’s family is largely from Iowa, while Giovanni’s is from Italy; so this wedding was such a fun fusion of cultures. They even hired an Italian DJ/emcee so that he could translate the ceremony into Italian for Giovanni’s family.

The venue was the garden of a private home in the San Fernando Valley owned by the founder/executive chef of Savor Solar Catering, Susan Rigali. Susan is an organic caterer with many years of experience in eco-conscious catering. She grows her own produce on the property and uses a huge solar-powered oven to prepare her delicious meals. Wedding guests dined alfresco at long feasting tables in the garden, enjoying an Italian-inspired feast prepared by Susan (who also happens to be Italian!).

Thanks to Katy Carrier Events for sharing this eco friendly wedding with us and Benjamin Lowry Photography for capturing this lovely wedding.
