As you may already know, I’m recognized as a green wedding officiant, meaning that I do everything I can as an officiant to minimize my carbon footprint and promote sustainable wedding goodies and trends. It’s fairly easy in Los Angeles to find organic bakeries and florists, recycled material party goods and second-hand bridal wear, but diamonds are a bit tricky. I love bling, but diamonds often start their commercial lives as raw stones mined by poorly paid and miserably treated miners. If you’ve seen “Blood Diamond,” you know what I’m talking about. (Great movie, by the way!)
I was so happy to see Offbeat Bride feature this beautiful set of wedding rings, which are being voted on in the Today Show’s dream wedding give away! I encourage you check out the rings on The Today Show’s facebook wedding page and vote for the Brilliant Earth rings! This is the first time in the eleven year history of this wedding competition that a “green” jeweler has been featured, so it’s incredibly important to show your support for this wedding trend!
In other news, I’m offering $50 off any couple’s final fees, so if your friends, coworkers or family members are looking for a wedding officiant in the Los Angeles area (including pretty much anywhere within 75 miles of LA!), please send them my way. I’ll reward any booked referral with a $20 gift card to iTunes!
