A GREEN WEDDING
If you have already vowed to live green, then a wedding at Irvine is the perfect choice for your nuptials. Irvine is the premiere site for eco-friendly weddings in Maryland. Our state-of-the-art, green facility in Owings Mills acommodates green wedding ceremonies and receptions, and includes breathtaking views of Caves Valley on 116 bucolic acres.
We have made our own vow – to provide beautiful weddings that reflect our conservation efforts.
Our 17,200-square-foot building is environmentally sound and our site conserves and preserves natural resources.
Our caterers are green.
Our Nature Store offers personalized ways to green your invitations, favors, gifts and bridal registry.
Our Preferred Vendors List features businesses that offer eco-friendly alternatives to your bridal needs from organic pedicures to sustainably grown flowers.
OUR VENUE IS UNIQUELY GREEN.
We protect nature by restoring the habitats of animals living in forests, wetlands and meadows on our site and we teach others to do the same. We conserve energy in many forms: lighting, heating and cooling. We have a green roof above the Nature Store, full of plants that absorb water to slow run-off (and erosion). The green roof also deflects the heat of the sun, which cools the building. We conserve water with low-flow fixtures throughout, and rain barrels collect and re-use water that runs off the roof top. The pervious parking lot allows rain water to filter slowly, minimizing run-off and erosion.
