Planning a green wedding? Let Elegance & Simplicity help! A Bethesda, MD based wedding planning company, Elegance & Simplicity was voted best eco-friendly wedding planner by the Audubon Naturalist Society. In addition to providing sustainably farmed floral arrangements, they drive no vans or SUV’s, their facilities are wind powered, and they make a practice of reducing, reusing, and recycling. By offering many services under one roof, they make wedding planning easier and faster which translates into less energy used overall. Recently, Elegance & Simplicity’s owner Katie Martin, also the director of the Washington, D.C. Green Wedding Consortium, planned and designed a local wedding that used all of the green wedding vendors in the DC Green Wedding Consortium. Over $50,000 of eco-friendly wedding services and products were provided and the entire wedding was offset by Carbonfund.org.
