Sustainable lake wedding with an Avatar theme twist. If you loved the movie, you will love the theme of this wedding. From blue cake to planted trees as wedding favors, the love and respect for nature shows through each photo.
The Avatar film showcases the beauty and respect we must have for nature and each other. Sustainability and equality are the main themes of this special styled shoot encompassing the best wedding vendors in the Massachusetts area. The model couple are newlyweds who met in Hawaii. The groom, Ali'i, is from the islands who locked eyes with his future bride Erin at an art show and both felt the magnetic energy to meet. They both love nature and the island spirit which paralleled into their styled shoot characters of Jake Sully and Neytiri. Erin's hair included tight braids and feathers, and Ali'i's hair mirrored hers with one tight braid down the sides of his updo. From the driftwood and ferns on the cream tablescape to the floral tree, nature's beauty using trees and plants was the main focal point just like the Tree of Souls is in the film. This gives future couples vision on how to find the beauty in the wedding venue space without adding too much decor. The wedding cake design was a simple white buttercream with a succulent on the top. The saying "I see you" is used in the film as a way to say "I love you" and "I respect you," which I wanted to incorporate by adding those powerful words to the outside of the cake written into the buttercream as a reminder to the couple as they cut the cake to always love and respect one another. Once cut, the simple white cake revealed a vibrant blue cake made with butterfly pea powder to bring the blue Navi'i people from the film into the shoot. Going with the theme of sustainability, each guest had a tree planted in their name as a wedding favor. For couples that love the film and love nature, their wedding theme is perfect for them.
