Share Article

Top Chef (Season 4) contestant Nikki Cascone, owner of 24 Prince in New York, is planning her green wedding to co-chef Brad Grossman. Her eco-chic gown is being designed by Christian Siriano (Project Runway Winner). She will be blogging about her wedding planning progress at The Green Bride Guide - the leading resource for green weddings online.

One of the reasons it is so important to me to share this blog is to help raise the awareness of couples and families that may not even know they have options: eco-friendly, healthy options.

Top Chef meets Top Designer as restaurateur Nikki Cascone teams with Project Runway winner Christian Siriano to design a wedding dress as green as the rest of Cascone's wedding.

"As a chef, I tried to explain to him my perspective of organic living: why not only food and the products I use in it are important to me, but that I also want it to come through in as many aspects of my lifestyle as possible," writes Cascone in her blog.

Cascone, who will marry business-partner Brad Grossman in 2010, will chronicle the wedding planning in a series of personal blog entries. From booking an eco-friendly venue, to arranging group transportation, to choosing local, organic farmers to provide romantic floral arrangements and delicious foods, Cascone will share the details on The Green Bride Guide's website, the most popular green-wedding resource online (http://www.thegreenbrideguide.com).

Kate Harrison, author of The Green Bride Guide, and founder of the site says, "We're so glad Nikki is willing to share her experience with us. Going green is something every couple can do and Nikki has really embraced it."

Harrison's book suggests creative ways for brides to decrease the environmental impact of their wedding using simple substitutions for everything from the fabric of the gown to flour in the cake.

Cascone writes, "One of the reasons it is so important to me to share this blog is to help raise the awareness of couples and families that may not even know they have options: eco-friendly, healthy options."
