Planning an Eco-Indie Wedding

Real Weddings: Lena Corwin and Joshua Dreier

Posted on: February 2, 2009

Already widely shown on the web, there is no denying how great this wedding is. Below are a few of my favorite elements from the wedding of Lena Corwin and Joshua Dreier, as featured on Martha Stewart Weddings. I’ve been a big fan of Lena’s artistic works for nearly 2 years, so it comes as so surprise that he wedding is such an inspiration as well. 🙂

Lena and Joshua are posing against a backdrop of Marimekko fabric reproduced from an early-1960s pattern. Lena is wearing a dress she found years ago at a thrift store — a girlish 1960s prom dress dotted with bright flowers. Josh is wearing a suit from Barney’s New York and a vintage patterned tie.”

“The letterpress invitation, map, reply card, and envelopes were done in retro hues and reflect the rustic feel of the wedding site. They were mailed with vintage stamps depicting woodland themes.”

“The bride’s own collection of old fabrics helped inspire the day’s details. Lena made Josh’s lighthearted tie; his boutonniere of oak leaves and acorns is tied with a jaunty bow.”

“A feather headpiece adorns Lena’s hair.”

“Family friend Jane Yen officiates at the ceremony under a canopy of oak branches topped with an oversize bird’s nest, which was crafted by another friend.”

“Lena illustrated cards listing the ingredients of each drink, and hung them next to the bar.”

“Guests dined off of cheerfully patterned plates.”
