Sometimes you just know when two people are made for each other and this is most definitely the case with Yael and Or. Together since high school, this fabulous couple decided to celebrate the start of their married life – the first step in building their own Jewish home – not far from the small town in Israel where they both grew up and where their families still live. Theirs is a totally sweet, and totally stylish tale.
You can’t get much better than a wedding by night in Israel. It’s hot, fun, life-affirming and just good for the soul and oh my how beautifully this is captured by Chrisman Studios.
Yael and Or had been crazy about these photographers for a long time and made damn sure that they had them snap up some of the most impactful wedding photographs I’ve ever seen.
I mean really, some of these images are just ridiculously beautiful — and characterful. The shots of the swimming pool in particular look like they belong in a Taschen coffee table book. They’re almost theatrical in their vivacity and vibrancy — which perfectly sums up an Israeli wedding. And that final shot… the bride sure knows how to party like a rock star. Amen to that!
My other stand out love of Yael and Or’s wedding is their unique ceremony. After cocktail hour, all 300 guests stood, yes stood, in front of the chuppah — which just so happened to be on stage — singing along to the Jewish prayers and songs, creating a completely engaged and loved-up atmosphere. Perfect.
And before I hand over to the bride, it would be churlish of me not to mention that apart from Or, there is in fact another “the one” in Yael’s life — and that is her wedding dress. Theirs was also a match made in heaven and one that was also approved by the whole family… even the groom!
