A Laid-Back, Sustainable Wedding at the Beaver Train Station in Pennsylvania
Dani Fitzgerald (24 and a reporter) and Mike Brown (24 and works at Big Brothers Big Sisters) live with intention, so the pair planned their wedding in the same way. Case in point: Mike proposed with a ring customized to avoid the purchase of a conflict diamond. "We wanted our wedding to be elegant, but with a casual feel," Dani says. "I also like second-hand items because they're unique an environmentally friendly." To keep things sustainable, Dani and Make chose potted centerpieces and the same policy went for the stationery—all printed on recycled paper. "Everything had to be as local and sustainable as possible," Dani says.
