Wisteria cascading from the trees, hand-strung by a group of 20 people, created an intimate feel at the ceremony.
The biggest challenge? The weather! “It was freezing, and the flowers had to be replaced on an hourly basis at times.” And, much like Forks, it rains “500 days a year,” said Polatsek.
“We had the nightmare wedding all done—custom white stage, stunning, all ready to go, and—boom—rain!” said Polatsek. “We covered everything and planned to shoot the following day, but when we came back, I thought I was going to have a heart attack. An animal went from the mud to the stage that was so nicely painted and made foot prints all over it!”

The whole wedding scene took almost four weeks to create. While Bella and Edward’s wedding décor would’ve cost about $300,000 by Polatsek’s estimate, you can get the look and feel of the Cullen wedding for less.
