Green Wedding Venue Boston- Artists for Humanity EpiCenter
Sometimes I watch these wedding shows on cable (you know the ones, where they spare no expense- fly in all their flowers from Amersterdam and Sylvia Weinstock shows up at the venue to personally adorn the 6 foot cake with sugar roses) and I wish there was some way I could plan a High End New York Style Loft Wedding without sacrificing my green wedding values.
The venue in my version would not be some Manhattan Penthouse but the Artist for Humanity EpiCenter in South Boston. Not only is AFH a blank slate for the perfect loft wedding, but it is an energy-sustainable Platinum LEED Certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Facility. It's the only one in Boston and only one of 14 in the US. Your not going to get a Greener Wedding Venue than this, nor a more stylish one. This is not your typical crunchy green wedding.
Among the venue's Eco-Friendly features are open, unobstructed spaces to maximize natural lighting (a huge bonus for your photographer); a solar array roof that provides 65 percent of the building's electricity; energy-efficient lighting fixtures and a water reclamation system for on-site use. The interior features a 5,000 square foot atrium gallery with a wrap around mezzanine (perfect for a cocktail hour).
Not only is AFH a beautiful venue, that with some local/seasonal catering and organic flowers (and a few Gobo Lights here and there) the AFH is a non-profit art apprenticeship program that allows urban teens to create wonderful works of art after school, bond with other teenagers, build relationships with wonderful mentors and learn about environmental issues such as sustainable energy and green living (heck, these talented kids along with an architect designed this amazing building).
You can rest assured that by choosing Artists for Humanity EpiCenter for your Green Boston Wedding Venue..you are truly supporting the community as well as making a choice to help the environment.
