We don’t even know where to start with today’s gorgeous wedding! The hanging flowers? The market-style food service? The fruit kayak?! (Yes, you read that right!)
Bride Chen and groom Yair had one of those quintessentially cool Israeli seaside Jewish weddings, at Trask at the Tel Aviv Port — but with a twist. Or several.
For starters, how awesome are the hanging wildflowers over the tables?! And let’s not even get started on the gorgeous pastel florals topping the couple’s chuppah, or the scattered bouquets of fresh herbs that dotted the venue.
And how sweet is it that the two families teamed up to write Chen and Yair a song, which they performed on the day as a surprise for the couple?
And back to that fruit kayak. Everything about Chen and Yair’s market-themed food setup is just fab — they had tons of stations, plus a cocktail car, a beer car, and a candy buffet — but the fact that they stuffed a real-life, full-size kayak with watermelon, grapes, mangoes, passionfruit, and more for their guests to dip into during the night makes this wedding truly one for the books.
Chen was the picture of chill, boho chic in her Inbal Raviv wedding dress, and People Photography captured the day beautifully. And we can’t get enough of her single piece of succinct and on-point wedding planning advice: “Marry the right guy.” Take it away, Chen!
How we met
Chen, the bride: We met at college, but we didn’t get together until 2 years after we finished studying.
