Oh this is such a beautiful wedding. I’m so very excited to be blogging it, and what’s more, the story of how Olya and Yossi met is quite simply a modern day fairytale, with good ol’ Instagram at the epicentre of their tale!
Olya was looking for a vintage hebrew typewriter and posted a picture on Instagram of what she was looking for. Yossi saw the picture after one of his friends ‘liked’ it, and he then dropped her a message telling her he owned one that she might just be interested in. Originally from Israel, Yossi had just moved to Los Angeles, but that didn’t stop the two of them from carving out a beautiful love story via email, Skype and all manner of 21st century technologies.
Olya says. “We are still wondering how this all magically happened, but here we are now together, sharing the same last name and that turquoise vintage typewriting machine.”
Super creative Olya (the blogger behind the à¼ber-cool boho TLV Birdie blog) handcrafted so many beautiful elements for her wedding, and believe it or not, organised the whole thing in just 3 months! This girl knows a thing or two about originality and artistry so look no further for your D.I.Y. inspiration! Take note of her wise advice the end too. I found myself nodding along in agreement like one of those dogs you find on the back shelf of a car. But I digress… read on for a beautiful story, and some sensational imagery by Irina Yakobson.
