In upstate New York this weekend, former first child Chelsea Clinton will marry investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, and green blogs are abuzz with leaked details about the vegan menu at the wedding and rehearsal dinner. Ecorazzi has the scoop: The weekend wedding festivities will kick off tonight in a 300-year-old Edwardian-style barn, set on a 525-acre estate. Guests will dine on vegan and gluten-free fair by Josh Kroner of Terrapin Restaurant. Following suit, the majority of the tasty offerings on the big day will be vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free (as Clinton, herself, is allergic to gluten), but there will also be grass-fed organic beef. And to top it off, the wedding cake will be vegan and gluten-free. More green celebrity news:

Leonardo DiCaprio has a bright idea -- pun intended -- on the set of his latest blockbuster film Inception. According to MNN (via the Huffington Post), the A-list actor approached Warner Brothers head Alan Horn in the planning stages of the film and suggested using solar power on set. Horn gave the project the go-ahead and all generators on set were powered by solar energy, making it the first eco-friendly Hollywood blockbuster. In an interview, DiCaprio said, "Hopefully, fingers crossed, with these small steps, we'll make that transition [to solar energy] on a much larger scale in the future."
