A Farm Sanctuary is little haven on Earth… can you think of a better place to celebrate vegan love? We feel so honored to be featuring this elopement styled shoot featuring some of our favorite East Coast vegan wedding suppliers (some already listed in our New England Vegan Wedding Directory) coming together to showcase their outstanding work in the peacefulness of Unity Farm Sanctuary in Massachussets. Captured by Mallory of Photography by Mallory, these images are filled with vibrant colors and lots of tender bonding moments between the vegan models and the Sanctuary residents.

And how about a round of applause for the Residents at the Unity Farm Sanctuary? We love how they interacted with the couple creating such fun moments. They now are safe and enjoying life as all animals should. Farm Sanctuaries are such important structures that need our continuous support. If you’re getting married, consider having your guests making a small donation to a Sanctuary near you in lieu of gifts; it’s a great way for them to learn more about what these loving homes stand for.
An incurable enthusiast and independent spirit since she could remember (her childhood heroines were Pippi Longstockings and Katharine Hepburn) Daniela Degrassi found her creative outlet as a lifestyle photographer, working mainly in Northern California. Currently splitting her time between SF Bay Area and her native Italy to continue to be her autistic sister’s primary caregiver. Vegan since 2014, she found a perfect way to carry her message of compassion while celebrating her love for the wedding industry launching The Kind Bride in February 2018.
