The site's main goal is to provide inspiration and resources for lowering the environmental impact of a wedding without sacrificing style, elegance or tradition.

About My Business is a comprehensive and credible resource for eco-friendly wedding ideas, products and services.

My Proudest Accomplishment

Giving up a career in environmental law to found the Green Bride Guide was the scariest decision I ever made. The fact that the company is now the country's leading green wedding resource is the thing I am most proud of.

My Favorite Pasttime

Maybe it is the fact that the product is so tangible and so functional, but I love making pottery. My mother and I take a class together in New Haven, and going is one of the highlights of my week.

Why I Love My Profession

I love the endless challenges and opportunities every day brings as an entrepreneur. It is exciting to know that our success translates into direct growth of the green economy and the support of the earth-conscious companies and eco-artisans we partner with.
