Take away favors at your wedding express your appreciation and gives your guests a special memento of your celebration. However, traditional knick-knacks like plastic statuettes often get thrown away or retired to a shelf to collect dust. Instead of these typically wasteful options, here are some eco-chic favors that will say “thanks”, help the planet and be put to good use.

Renee and Nic’s Same Day Edit: Mountain Winery

September 4th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

Since the first time I met Renee and Nic, I found them to be very charming, down-to-earth and adventurous. They’re avid mountain bikers and even leading up to the wedding day Renee was going on extreme rides. So the Mountain Winery in Saratoga served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding celebration where they shared their personal vows overlooking the city. With such a love for life, they share an even more immense love for each other and Martin Vo Studios captured the magic of the day perfectly. Wishing you both a lifetime of more adventures to come, congratulations Renee and Nic!

Hanson and EunMi share the ultimate American success story. Shortly after they got married 4 years earlier in Vegas they decided to go into the restaurant business and started the now famous Cha Cha Sushi in San Jose. After much success and 2 beautiful kids the couple decided to renew their vows with almost 300 of the family and friends at the Ranch Golf Club in San Jose this past March. We had only 4 months to plan but just like everything they touch their big day was a huge hit! Their wedding was true celebration of their incredible journey, current successes and future adventures ahead. Congratulations to Hanson and EunMi!
