We’re fighting some illness here in the Ryback household. Evie seems to be on the upswing (after some serious non-sleeping and coughing earlier this week) but Andy is totally done. I woke up feeling like I was starting to head down the cold hill too – so fingers crossed I can fight it with copious amounts of Vitamin C, Zinc, and spin class later today (sweat it out, right?!).

From the styled shoot vendors:

Working with a company called Joyful Send-off, a nonprofit organization aimed and showcasing the harmful effects that balloons can have on our environment, and providing fun and gorgeous eco-friendly alternatives, Dragon Studio & I worked together to design and implement something that showcased just how beautiful your wedding can be, while still being environmentally conscious. We hope you love the details – from the use of recycled paper, to even using a gown that was hand-beaded and created locally.

If you can believe it, the stunning Tropical House at Norfolk Botanical Garden was our backup plan. It was pouring rain outside – and we couldn’t be happier that it was. What a perfect backdrop to this eco-friendly shoot! Even the plates were biodegradable and made out of recycled materials. The glassware was made from old wine bottles. The jewelry was made from gems found in the United States, all done conflict free. Each and every detail was carefully thought out – and we love how everything turned out.
