Waste Less Wedding

From JBM Photography: For this faux wedding we wanted to do things a little differently. We've seen too many things go to waste after a wedding is over, so we really wanted everything to be reusable, edible, upcycled or recycled.

Everything from the vintage rentals to the edible florals/herbs down to the seeded paper that can now be planted. The favors also fit in with the wedding day but also can be used at home in a realistic setting (bath bombs and herb seeds).

Make it Unique

We made sure to add as many unique touches as possible (mobile bar, poetry station, custom jewelry, gluten free desserts, sage baths, crystals, custom art, etc.) to show couples that they can easily make their wedding day more memorable and think outside the box to match their personalities.

Start With A Solid Foundation

We think when planning any wedding details you must start with its foundation. Which to us is the venue. With a heavy emphasis on florals and herbs, it made the venue itself stand out without adding any elements that felt foreign.
