A big congrats are in order for environmentalist and actress, Natalie Portman, who married dancer/actor Benjamin Millepied in an eco-friendly ceremony over the weekend.
The couple tied the knot under a rustic Jewish chuppah made of twigs while on a beautiful buff overlooking the ocean in Big Sur, California. The pair were eager to include eco-friendly elements throughout the day. Per People.com:
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.
The entire menu was plant-based and animal free. In lieu of a cake, the guests were treated to French macarons, an ode to Millipied’s French heritage.
The small wedding (around 100 guests were said to be in attendance) concluded in the early hours of the morning with guests being sent home with green parting gifts – packets of wildflower seeds with the word, ‘merci’ inscribed on them.
