Avatar Inspired Wedding

Megan & Noah
September 24, 2011
Coxhall Gardens and Bridgewater Club

When I first met Megan, she explained to me how she and Noah loved nature and thought of bringing aspects of the movie Avatar into her wedding. This idea very much intrigued me even though I hadn't seen the movie. I knew I had to get right vendors on board right away to carry out this inspiration in a classy way. Indianapolis florist Circle City Designers was brought on board right away to create the fabulous floral displays and Evans Audio Visual created the uber important lighting elements . The design that we came up with was AMAZING!!!!- The centerpieces were designed to create the look and feel of the "other-wordly" forest in the movie. We had 5 feet tall curly willow trees with floral accents, a water element with lotus pods, and futuristic manzanita branches with floral clusters for some serious drama. These took wedding flowers to a whole new level. Haze for effect and pin spots were just a few highlights from the design provided by Evans. We needed a great photographer to capture these design elements. Jessica Strickland on board to capture all of the AWESOMENESS.
Megan and Noah wanted everything for their wedding to go smoothly so there were lots of emails and phone calls during the planning process.
I was so excited the week of Megan's wedding, until Tiffany told me that it was going to rain. The back up plan for the ceremony was in a tent at Coxhall Gardens, rather than the planned outdoor ceremony with a petal drop. Jessica emails me the Thursday before and says the chance of rain was now up 70%!!! OH NO!
Even though rain is supposed to bring a couple luck, I was feeling luckier that the rain held off and ceremony got to be outside! Guests were greeted by strolling violinists and were surprised by the petal drop when Megan and Noah kissed. The happy couple left in a horse drawn carriage. At the reception, everyone was in awe over the way the room looked. Megan and Noah couldn't believe how their dream became reality. During dinner, the waterfall backdrop switched to Megan and Noah's love story created by Northern Light Filmworks. Jeremy from DJ's Direct kept party going all night long. A HUGE thank you to all that were involved in making Megan and Noah a success.
