I’m really excited about today’s wedding, not just because it’s epitomises my idea of simple beauty, but also because Liron Erel was the photographer, and I’ve been dying to get his work up again on the blog.
It also contains a few firsts: It’s the first Jewish wedding that I’ve blogged on Smashing The Glass to take place in a real bone fide forest, it’s the first to feature a Jewish bride proudly (and resplendently!) showing off her tattoos, and it’s the first to feature my favourite boutique hotel in Tel Aviv, The Montefiore, which is where today’s lovely couple got ready.
Here is what the beautiful bride, Michaela, had to say about her Israeli wedding in the woods.
