How the Couple Met
While still in college at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), Natalie and Avi became close friends. Their friendship remained platonic for their first three years in school, with the two acting as wingman and wingwoman for each other. By the time senior year rolled around, they lived in apartments across from each other and began spending more time together.
As the months went by, the couple realized they had fallen for each other. “With only a few months until graduation, we decided to commit to long distance for a couple years and try to make it work,” writes the bride. After graduating, Natalie headed to New York for work and Avi stayed in Los Angeles. Seven years later, the two were engaged. It’s safe to say that long distance worked for these lovebirds who tied the knot on September 10, 2023.
Natalie & Avi’s Wedding Day
Before their big day, Natalie and Avi shared rehearsal dinner with friends and family at The Patriot Golf Club, enjoying the view of green, rolling hills. The next day, as the couple shared vows and said “I do,” at the iconic Philbrook Museum located in the heart of Tulsa they were surrounded by classic white and green florals provided by Ever Something.
“Taylor helped execute our vision with multiple events throughout the weekend,” said the bride. “She was so patient as I went back and forth so many times on colors and vibe and vision — and the team’s execution the day of was perfect.”
Along with stunning floral arrangements at their ceremony, Natalie and Avi enjoyed a beautiful reception made possible by the decor and rentals provided by Party Pro Rents. Everything came together under the direction of Sarah Davis from Bee Balanced Events.
“Sarah was the anchor that kept us grounded and calm in the lead up to and the day of the event,” writes Natalie. “I am so grateful for her guidance throughout — none of this could have happened without her!”
Kristen Edwards Photography captured Natalies and Avi’s special day, giving them photos to look back on for years to come. Jordan Miears Photography + Films, LLC also created a video for the couple, letting them experience the beauty and joy of their wedding over and over.
Natalie & Avi’s Favorite Detail
“One favorite memory of mine was walking down the aisle. … When it was our turn to walk down, and we turned the corner, I saw a sea of people — all of whom I felt such a deep sense of love and care for. I immediately started crying — heaving, loud cries, in fact — overwhelmed by the wonderful emotions. To see your life’s friendships and dear family in front of you as you walk to the love of your life, was truly the most special thing.”
