Weddings that Give Back- Jen & Rishi

A few months ago we featured an amazing engagement session for a couple of love birds looking to show love to others and with utmost excitement… TODAY… We get to share their awesome 2-day long wedding festivities! Check out what the bride had to share about her wedding planning process and how she conscious incorporated vendors and products that gave back!

‘The Sangeet (night before the wedding) was held at a local venue, sponsored by an organizations called Source MN, whose goal is to bring hope and opportunity in the city. They work with homeless people and do anti-trafficking awareness and education. We love being able to use a space that is doing good in our community.’

I bought my wedding dress from a local consignment shop (in an effort to be more eco-conscious) called Bridal Aisle.

‘I worked with Gracie over at Miriam Designs {who we sell at Paisley + Sparrow} to get rings and necklaces for my ladies. Miriam Designs works with women who have overcome addiction. My sister (MOH) wore the Kana necklace directly from my shop. It is made by Purpose Jewelry who works with women who were formerly trafficked. Bridesmaids also received lip balm from Honest Company who makes sure they make sure every vendor operates according to GMP standards which mandate fair labor wages and working conditions. Their products are good for your body, the environment and the people making them!’

‘We had leftover envelopes from our invitations so I folded them over and wrote numbers on them for table numbers! The envelopes otherwise would have gone to waste. We also used succulents paired with candles (from the consignment shop) for half of our table centerpieces instead of flowers. We hated to throw away beautiful flowers after only using them for a day! I found pots at local thrift shops and painted them gold so they all matched. We gave away some and the rest are in various places around our home! :)’View More: http://on3weddingphotography.pass.us/jenrishi

‘For our wedding favors we decided to gift each guest with a bar of Hand in Hand Soap – For each bar of soap we give, one bar will be given to a child in need. {also found in my shop!}’

‘However we did registered for some gifts, we also gave the option to donate to International Justince Mission – a human rights agency that is bringing rescue and freedom to victims of slavery, sex trafficking and other forms of violence. We raised over $300!’

‘The rest of our vendors we went with small locally owned businesses rather than larger corporations. My Hair/Makeup was done by Jen Santoro Rotty, Invitations and Programs were done by Libby Design , Photography : On3Design for Photography and our videography:  Acowsay
