There’s not much we love more than blogging the Jewish wedding of one of our beloved Brides Club members, so naturally we’re thrilled to be featuring the fabulous Newport, Rhode Island nuptials of Brides Club grad Sarah, an advisor at a research and advisory firm, and Gal, a software engineer.
Sarah always dreamed of getting married on the beautiful Rhode Island coast, where she grew up spending summers, and the couple took their cues from their elegant New England surroundings, choosing a soft color scheme of ivory, blush, and lavender.
They also had a watercolor wedding crest designed, featuring their venue, dogs, and favorite flowers – and we love the way the crest became a focal point tying together all of the many wedding details! Sarah and Gal even had custom cookies decorated with their crest on the tables for their guests – check them out in the gorgeous photos by Adeline and Grace!
Animals are a big part of Sarah and Gal’s life, and they had a gorgeous custom cocktail sign painted in watercolor featuring their dog Teddy and horse Jasper – and Teddy even came to the venue for some special pre-chuppah pics with his humans!
There’s so much more to say about this exquisite wedding – like, how cool is it that Sarah and Gal had a live wedding painter on hand to capture their first dance? – but we’ll let the bride take it from here…
How We Met
Sarah, the bride: Gal and I met in 2012 in Tel Aviv at a popular bar called Drink Point on Dizengoff Street. I was in Israel doing a Masa Internship Program and Gal had just finished with the army and was working at Live Person. I had been on Birthright the year before and became friends with an Israeli soldier in our group. When I decided to do an internship program in Israel the following year my friend had wanted to introduce me to all of his friends.
Gal is one of his best friends. In 2013, I made Aliyah and we lived in Tel Aviv. In 2016, we decided to move to the United States with our dog Lilush. Gal was an exchange student at Carnegie Mellon University and I was working on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential Campaign in Pittsburgh. In 2017, we moved to Washington, DC where we have been living ever since with our Golden Retriever Teddy. Gal proposed in the Icelandic countryside on horseback in 2018.
