Vintage Eco-Chic Wedding at Twenty Mile House | Part 1

Amanda + Tim
July 19, 2012
Twenty Mile House, Cromberg, CA 

The re-use, reclaim, and upcycle aesthetic of vintage goes hand in glove with eco-chic. This couple used vintage bird houses, local wildflowers, and wooden rounds for a downed tree to minimize the impact their wedding had on the environment  Keeping their guests list small and using a certified green wedding venue made their wedding the hight of eco chic. Captured by Kris Holland this wedding is sweet, intimate, and soooo much better for the environment than the average wedding. Kudos Amanda and Tim!

From Kris: Amanda and Tim’s eco/green wedding at the Twenty Mile House near Lake Tahoe was a sweet and intimate affair. Sixty of Amanda and Tim's closest family and friends attended and everyone had a hand in helping their wedding come together. The venue itself is a certified Green America approved business and is also carbon free. This was an important aspect for Amanda and Tim who placed a strong emphasis on have an environmentally low impact wedding. The Twenty Mile House was built as a stage coach stop in 1854 and has since been transformed into a destination wedding venue in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Amanda is an artist and middle school teacher and Tim is a musician. Together, they handmade nearly every aspect of their wedding including: – The log rounds used in the centerpieces were cut from a fallen tree near their home – The other centerpiece items were thrift store scouring finds – The cake – Tim's family prepared the meal – The birdhouses were made my Amanda's aunt – The swing seat (for guests to sign)
