The number one ingredient for a swoon-worthy wedding is a healthy serving of romance, and Amir & Shiraz’s dreamy Italian ceremony had romance aplenty, both in the aesthetic and the obvious deep, deep love between the two of them.
The pair, originally from Israel, met during their mandatory IDF army service. Amir comforted Shiraz through her homesickness and a best friendship blossomed into true love.
The couple were living in the US at the time of the wedding and decided on Villa Mangiacane in Tuscany, Italy, as a central meeting point to bring together their families from around the world.
We absolutely swooned when we saw Shiraz’s breathtakingly bohemian and fashion-forward dress, and were even more wowed to learn that the dress was made by the bride’s sister, Israeli designer Inbal Raviv. No wonder the dress was so flattering, as it was made with love for the bride by someone with bucket loads of talent and the benefit of knowing her so well.
Roses adorned the chuppah and were a consistent feature in the theme – a meaningful nod to the first flower that Amir gave Shiraz.
We’ll hand over to Shiraz now for the full story of her perfect Jewish wedding day.
How we met
Shiraz, the bride: We met while doing mandatory service in the army in Israel. I was very unsettled and homesick, Amir became my friend and gradually we fell in love. He was always there for me and he still is to this day. My best friend!
