Our signature full-circle-floral process ensures that events leave as little waste behind as possible. In choosing how to stock our tool shelves, we opt for toxin free, reusable tools.

We consider the planet and people in every single step of our process.
In addition to our commitment to environmental sustainability, we invest in social sustainability as well. Living wages, a healthy and safe work environment, and equal power sharing are cornerstones of our business model and set us apart as a hub for creativity, connection, and social good.

I launched my company DeAnda Photography officially in 2010, and have now photographed over 100 weddings. I have always been an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and when marriage finally became legally recognized for same-sex couples in 2014 in Illinois, I knew I wanted to help these couples capture their big day. I had read too many disgusting stories of other wedding vendors refusing service to same-sex couples and I knew I wanted them to look at my website and not have any worry and be able to see that not only have I worked with other same-sex couples, but I celebrate them! Love is love in my book and has always has been that way since day one!

A real life testimonial:
“I’m so happy we selected the clubhouse of The Woman’s Club of Evanston as our venue for our wedding and reception. The space provided separate spaces for our cocktail hour, ceremony and reception, with a stage for our band, which is what attracted us in the first place. I love the history and the architectural beauty of the Clubhouse, which provides a beautiful backdrop to your wedding photos. And when my wife and I understood that our rental fees enable The Woman’s Club of Evanston to focus on charitable giving in the community, we ended up being very proud to have selected this as our venue.” -Michelle, married on 1/12/20
