This wedding! Today’s Jewish wedding is what summer festival wedding dreams are made of. Mor, the CEO of a rock climbing gym, and Rotem, a software engineer, had the dreamiest ever Israeli vineyard wedding, expertly captured by photographer Roman Balashov and videographer Guy Lahav.
We’re obsessed with their minimalist magical chuppah — which the brides credit to their amazing planner, Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor Bebke. With just a few artfully placed bottle vases full of flowers and greenery artfully draped from the poles, it shows you don’t have to go for something crazy ornate to make a big impact.
We also love that the couple crafted an ultra-personal ceremony incorporating Jewish tradition with their own personalities and values. The brides’ sisters officiated, and rather than saving speeches for the meal, Mor and Rotem decided to include them during the chuppah — including an incredibly emotional one by Mor’s mother. We love the idea of making speeches a part of your ceremony — such a special way to involve important people, and to inject some individuality into the proceedings!
Now over to Rotem…
How we met
Rotem: We met at Ben Gurion University when we both started biotechnology engineering studies.
