Real Wedding: Elizabeth + Eric’s Organic Wedding in Sausalito

Today, Photographer Kate Harrison was sweet enough to send me this nearly 100% sustainable and organic wedding! From Kate, Elizabeth + Eric’s beautiful wedding was passionately crafted to be as sustainable and organic as possible (nearly 100%!). They sought out local, seasonal, organic flowers; an organic and fair-trade baker for their cake; and re-purposed many items found on the web. The results were gorgeous, timeless, personal and beautifully rustic. After a sweeping hike to the beach–nearly one mile–for their ceremony, we returned to the Headlands Center for the Arts –the perfect venue for the reception. Seeing Elizabeth hike through the hillside in her beautiful wedding dress was epic. There were so many visuals and tender moments that took my breath away; this wedding had soul. Thanks so much Kate!
