One.org recently featuring a wedding couple that used One, along side of other charities, in their wedding day details. Naturally, Black Sheep Bride needed to find out more and we were pleasantly surprised to see it didn’t just stop with supporting One… The amount of thought and love that went into to incorporating socially conscious products on their Big Day is so overwhelmingly amazing! See for yourself!

Lauren and Brian are both teachers for at-risk students and had huge passions for supporting causes near and dear to their hearts! The invitations were the catalyst, they wanted something eco-friendly, and then saw that they could also help other people in the process, when they came across Cards for Causes. From there it was ON! They began brainstorming ways to incorporate causes into almost every facet of their wedding day! It made their BIG Day even more worth celebrating!
They had a board showcasing each cause represented and provided their guests with information about ways to help. The list of causes/products represented on their big day is awe-inspiring: Bead for Life, TOMS, Sseko, Endangered Species Chocolate, Peru Paper, To Write Love on Her Arms, One, Feed, Unicef, Live Strong, White Knot, Big Hearts Fund, Charity Water, The Alzheimer Foundation, Human Rights Campaign, Wildfire Relief Fund.
As if that wasn’t enough awesome do goody’ness… they took it up a notch further and spent a week of their honeymoon volunteering at an animal sanctuary… These are the kinds of friends you need in your life, right?? Such an amazing example of using love to love others!
