An Eco Conscious Aprés-Ski Themed Styled Elopement


Alex of Keen Events PDX, is the master planner behind this eco-conscious styled elopement. When I was introduced to the world of green weddings I just knew I had to be part of this dream shoot!
Alex brought together vendors that were eco-conscious in their practice and business. The theme of an “Aprés-Ski” elopement has every adventure-loving couple in mind; which in this case fit well with the groom, an avid skier and the bride, an outdoor enthusiast. Every detail, vendor and brand showcased in this elopement has an element of green. If going entirely or partially green is your intention for your special day think about teaming up with eco-conscious friendly vendors to ensure your needs are met while lessening your ecological footprint.
I’m always so grateful for the opportunities and learning experiences in my field of work and I want to share this with you. If you have any questions about what it means to ‘go green’ at your wedding, I’d love to share my insights. In the meantime, enjoy these photos and spread the word, that it is impossible to have an “eco-conscious wedding” and eat your cake too! (;
