Planning an Eco-Friendly Honeymoon

Oak & Honey Events is proud to be an environmentally friendly event planner. What does that mean? Well, it means that you’re conscientious about the resources consumed in the production of your event, and that you search out ways to make environmentally friendly choices throughout your planning process.

If planning an environmentally friendly event is close to your heart, then you will love what we’re about to share. Oak & Honey Events teamed up with Lesley Cohen Travel Planning to bring you tips for extending your eco-friendly planning all the way through your honeymoon!

Many hotels are Do-Gooder establishments that give back to the community or use green supplies throughout their properties.

If you’re looking for a fabulous eco-friendly bachelorette destination or a stateside honeymoon, Lesley highly recommends the 1Hotel in Miami Beach. They use reclaimed materials in the hotel and everything is inspired by nature – hemp mattresses, organic sheets, the list goes on. 1Hotel also offers health-conscious amenities like fabulous exercise options, healthy food options with local ingredients, and a holistic spa. They truly provide an environment that is healthy for both their guests and the earth. Read more about their story, here.

If you prefer a more exotic honeymoon destination, Lesley recommends Laucala in Fiji. They put it best on their website: “Style and sustainability go hand in hand throughout,” and that could not be truer. Laucala uses farms and fisherman on the island for a real farm/sea to table experience. And you might have seen the photo of their famous glass-sided pool. It’s the epitome of luxury meets eco-friendly. Read more about their story, here.

If you’re ready to jump feet first into honeymoon planning, get in touch with Lesley!

September Wedding at Cherry Basket Farm

Last week Maddy and Chris’s wedding was featured on Artfully Wed! We were thrilled to pack our bags and head off to Northport, Michigan for Maddy and Chris’ wedding at Cherry Basket Farm! Cherry Basket Farm is a restored 120-year-old farm located just north of the historic village of Omena in Leelanau County, Michigan. This rustic venue is surrounded by hardwoods, cherry orchards, and farmland.

Maddy and Chris’ wedding ceremony, which was designed and coordinated by Oak & Honey Events, took place on the upper level of the venue’s two-story, timber-framed barn, while cocktail hour took place downstairs, and dinner under the tent. Their guests then headed up upstairs to join the couple for dancing and desserts!

The venue’s rustic vibe paired well with the couple’s bohemian style. Elbowgrease Design provided gorgeous macrame chandeliers for the event, in addition to an ombre macrame escort sign by Baci Designer. The color palette consisted of blush, marsala, sand, and espresso, in addition to the greenery that was incorporated throughout the design. These photos from Maiko Media perfectly captured the beauty of this event!

Romantic Autumn-Inspired Styled Shoot at The Ariel Pearl Center

After much anticipation, today is the day that this stunning styled shoot hits the Every Last Detail blog and we’re excited to share it with you!

The Ariel Pearl Center provided the perfect backdrop for this autumn-inspired shoot. The historic bank building with its marble columns and floors, stone walls, and large arched windows complemented our soft peach and orange color palette perfectly.

Oak & Honey Events along with our dream team of vendors created a romantic and whimsical setting, rooted in tradition and elegance. Every detail was flawless. Twig Floral provided a buffet of loose, lush greenery accented by warm peach florals. A gold-adorned tablescape provided by All Occasions Party Rental complemented the vintage feel of the room. And Renee Lemaire Photography captured every detail perfectly.

Thursday Therapy at The Spinnaker Room

This past May we enjoyed the evening at The Spinnaker Room for Thursday Therapy! The Spinnaker Room is a new venue in downtown Cleveland that has an industrial feel. The Amour Company provided the most amazing small bites like mini chicken + waffles, meatballs, and AMAZING desserts! We kicked of spring with some fun colorful linens and industrial rentals from Lasting Impressions Rentals.
Thank you to Matt Erickson Photography for capturing the evening!
