About Green Wedding Shoes

At Green Wedding Shoes, we are truly. madly. deeply. head over heels in love with love. We love sharing weddings with our readers and believe that there is no “right” way to throw a wedding. Whether you’re dreaming of an intimate wedding on a farm, a weekend camping adventure or a handmade wedding in a loft, we love them all! I love showing couples how their wedding can be all about them and that it’s ok to break traditions to make the day their own.Since beginning GWS, our mission has been to help couples personalize their wedding day and make it truly about the two of them as a couple, because that is what the day is about. We love great photography – because it’s the one thing you have to remember after the event! And we have lots of great artists to recommend in our GWS Wedding Artist Guide to help create a GWS wedding. In addition to sharing unique and creative real weddings, we also love sharing DIYs projects you can use for your wedding (or any party!) and identifying new trends that we’re loving and would like to see brides and wedding artists incorporate into future weddings. As we write GWS, we make it a point to travel and share fun ideas for your honeymoon or anniversary trips, since we have lots of readers who are already married! :)

A bit about the couple (in love!) behind the site.

Jen and Jason met at work. Jen was working as an Art Director and Jason was the VP of the company (a fun design company that developed websites and  created online campaigns for movies). They quickly realized not only were they a great team at the company, there were becoming best friends and maybe more. Jen left the company for a new role as Creative Director (where she was a lead designer for ESPN and Yahoo! Sports) and their friendship quickly turned to more. After a few years of dating, and the perfect woodland wedding in Jason’s hometown of Milwaukee, WI, Jen started Green Wedding Shoes to fill a gap she saw in the wedding blog world. Three years later (and with lots of hard work), we are proud to both call Green Wedding Shoes our full time gig. Jen is the Editor + Creative Director. She carefully selects each wedding to share on the site and designs all the layouts. Jason is the man behind the site. He runs the ad campaigns, software development and partner relationships. We absolutely love that we get to work with each other everyday on a site that helps inspire so many couples in love. We consider ourselves pretty lucky!

We live in Los Angeles, California and when we aren’t working on the site, love being outdoors, traveling, checking out new foodie spots and discovering/listening to bands. We find the Southern California lifestyle often inspires our design + interests.
