A blush pink wedding gown, centerpieces and a bouquet with whole artichokes, a crazy adorable flower girl, and images by Christa Elyce — are you sold yet? Christa and stylist Lauren behind Ellanesque Weddings created this incredible wedding shoot around the idea of having everything be eco-friendly, naming their theme “gardening shed chic.” Keep an eye out for the cake-shaped cookies, which even have their own little succulent detailing!

blush pink wedding gowns

From the photographer, Christa: Gardener’s Shed Chic became our approach for this eco-friendly styled wedding. Incorporating reusable, recycled, and compostable elements were key. Inspired by nature, the concept “grew”! Urban farming and home gardens has become a fascinating trend to many and it allowed us to create a styled wedding that brought together wedding fashions and gardening.

    Gorgeous details! Love the mint green vintage doors, artichokes in her bouquet and the wreaths on the bride and groom's chairs.

    This is a lovely photo shoot! I love the details and the bursts of color. Its always great to see more green weddings, but I am curious which elements are eco-friendly (vintage, locally sourced, recycled, etc). Could you give more details?
