Greener Bakers & Wedding Cakes
Isn't it wonderful that the greener and sustainability movements have gained enough momentum that even a baker can cost-effectively source ingredients and practices to offer vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free and humanely-produced products? We congratulate Marneycakes on making delicious, gorgeous and sustainably sourced wedding and celebration cakes that are a perfect finale for any celebration. There will be no sacrifice in flavor, quality or service. When you serve a slice of Marneycakes, you can be sure that your guests will leave with the sweet taste of the party still dancing in their heads…and also impressed that a sustainably sourced product can achieve this level of quality. If you are a Green Bride, Marneycakes is the baker for you! Contact her now to arrange a tasting.
Vivid Visions Photo-Graphics
Vivid Visions Photo-Graphics is the first photography studio on Long Island to earn the Greener Photography Premier designation. Photography is fraught with environmental issues most particularly related to the chemicals used in developing and printing the images. But, from the less wasteful practices of the studio and office, to the Green Strategy posted on the website, Vivid Visions Photo-Graphics puts into practice the well-worn but still very relevant "reduce, reuse, recycle."
With everyone jumping on the eco-friendly bandwagon lately, it's getting difficult to find someone who gives the green/sustainable/earth friendly movement more than just lip service. As far as caterers go, the eco-friendly bride or host can stop looking. The Fifth Season Caterers are the real deal. This former Greenport favorite, and now based in Port Jefferson, brings back to the East End their famously fresh, local, seasonal and organic fare in the form of off-premises catering. The variety of their menu assures a favorite for any palate that is produced from sustainably harvested ingredients-sashimi from sustainable seafood, farm fresh local produce, artisanal cheeses-food that connects us to the Earth and each other. All of that aside, a Fifth Season meal is simply delicious, presented to you and your guests in a manner that keeps waste to minimum, and satisfaction at a premium. Find out more about The Fifth Season's sustainable practices and of course their fabulous menu at their beautiful website.
Country Estate Weddings
Salt Air Farm embodies the term sustainability. A wedding venue, flower farm and B&B, this property has covered all the bases for any special occasion celebration, or weekend getaway. Prudence Heston, part of a 12 generation farm family in Cutchogue, emphasizes individuality while offering guests a glimpse into the world of a working family farm. The flowers, fruits and honey are produced and harvested on site. The farm to fork philosophy is practiced regularly here, with guests encouraged participate. In fact, the weddings hosted at the Salt Air Farm directly support the expansion of acreage used for flower production, allowing the farm to grow at a pace that is manageable and well, sustainable. If you envisioned a grand celebration with a tiny footprint, the Salt Air Farm is the place to be.
