Daniella was a wedding photographer when she came up with the idea to create The Kind Bride. She decided to transition from photography to making it easy for couples to plan their weddings instead. She has even created a directory of services and products for vegan weddings that also offer amazing eco-friendly options. This is the first vegan bridal show ever! While others think they are being innovative by making wedding dresses out of toilet paper, Daniella’s vendors are keeping it eco-friendly and making dresses out of bamboo silk! The Kind Bride is definitely your one-stop-shop if you want to spread the love all around and get married with compassion for animals and our planet!
You can have an extremely gourmet spread with none of the cruelty thanks to Pink Salt!
Vanessa checks out The Bel Air Treehouse with the owner, Hedda, as her guide. Starting off with the super cool couch cushions she is sitting on, Hedda explains are actually made from the intricate and colorful Rajasthani gypsy brides’ gowns. The piece is a tribute to her husband, Cedric, who is a drummer for The Gypsy Kings band. Hedda was ahead of her time studying yoga and promoting compassion for all beings long before it was popular. She has even been vegetarian since she was 19 years old! Her Bel Air Treehouse invites people to enjoy an environment free of superficiality and still full of the luxuries life has to offer. It could not be a more appropriate venue for The Kind Bridal show. You can even get married there! It is full of good vibes and they have trees with peaceful grandmother and grandfather energies that you can come visit. The space is non-alcoholic, plant-based, and nonsmoking. But they offer amazing smoothies and elixirs that are sure to raise your vibrations. This is a must-visit oasis right outside of Los Angeles! All are welcome!
This setting is so surreal you might think you’re in heaven!
