Oscar winner Natalie Portman tied the knot with Benjamin Millipied on 11 Aug 2012. The two met on the set of the movie "Black Swan" during 2009. The wedding was eco-friendly themed and it reflected the couple's outlook on the world.
Here are a few wedding details:
Instead of having flowers flown in, the ceremony featured wildflowers indigenous to the Big Sur coast where the ceremony took place, and instead of "fish or steak", the menu was strictly vegan in keeping with the bride's diet. Portman, 31, chose a traditional white gown, complimented by a crown of white wildflowers in her hair.
When things wrapped up around 2 a.m., the approximately 100 guests took home packets of wildflower seeds as party favors. The packets were inscribed with a single word: "Merci."
Themed weddings are favoured by a lot of wedding couples. It gives the guests something to remember, and possibly become talk of the town.
Planning a themed wedding is rather easy. The difficult part is coming up with the ideal wedding theme itself. Wedding themes range from movie-oriented to personal beliefs such as Natalie's. Other themes could be colours, patterns, and symbols that are meaningful to you: a pretty patterned pillow can form an entire wedding theme.
If your wedding has a theme, be sure to convey this to the wedding photographer in advance. The photographer can plan and keep this in mind when shooting the wedding, and also design the album according to the theme, which ties up the whole event together.
