Friday Favors: Happy 2 Years to GWS + Free Wedding Photography!!

happy birthday

What a crazy week this has been! So many exciting things going on. We got so busy with the launch of our new Vendor Guide (and SO great to hear from so many of you that have already been using it and found some of your vendors – yay!!!) that we totally missed our 2 year birthday!! Yep, Green Wedding Shoes turned 2 this week. So exciting where this site has gone in the past 2 years and I have you readers to thank for it! Thank you SO much for continuing to come check out GWS. I totally appreciate all the love everyone has shown! And we have more fun things in store :)

A few things before we head out for the weekend:

Hearts for Haiti – How sweet are those rocks in the shape of a heart? You can help support Haitian artisans by giving a beautiful hand carved heart rock. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these handmade Haitian river stone hearts will fund the Haitian relief activities of the HAND/EYE Artisan Grant Program. Beautiful and supports a great cause – a win win in my book.

Remember our contest with the amazing Clayton Austin? Well, the winning couple had their photo shoot last weekend and it turned out KILLER! Check out their photos from their Malibu love shoot here.

Fun birthday cake photo by Elizabeth Messina. If you aren’t reading her blog, Kiss the Groom, you are missing out! One of my favorite reads. :)

And for the big news! In honor of our 2 year birthday, we have partnered with photographer Jessica Feely to give away free wedding photography to one lucky couple!! How amazing is that? The prize package is worth over $5,000!!
