it took me a while, but i've finally got around to publishing this post
about 5 months ago, my beloved jesse and i got married
location - david's table, mt. zion, jerusalem
dress - ebay (custom made)
heels - zara (yup!)
flats - massimo dutti
hair decoration - made myself
belt - made myself
jacket - gifted h&m (garden collection)
engagement ring and earrings (borrowed) - idit
make up - limor wiezman
jesse's shirt, vest and tie - a small shop in south tel aviv
jesse's trousers - castro
jesse's shoes - marko
first of all - i still can't believe it actually happened
and 5 months ago, no less!
we had a small and intimate event
just family and close friends
about 130 people
no puffy dress, no fuss
just a simple vintage-y atmosphere
of course i couldn't start my day without the swarls
(whom we adopted just a couple of weeks prior to the wedding day)
how pretty is the shoe box of my massimo dutti flats?
it is a good enough reason to buy their shoes
first picture fully dressed up
(this is when i finally started realizing this was really happening...)
and speaking of the dress
it was a perfect fit - and i felt so natural in it
which is exactly what i wanted - as i said - no puffy dress
it's really not my style...
you'd never be able to guess how much it cost...
$109! custom made!
i swore that i wouldn't buy an expensive dress
and indeed - i didn't!
i felt like a 50's starlette here...
the gorgeous earrings the lovely idit let me borrow
the engagement ring jesse got me
(he picked it all on his own! ;) )
and a few words i wrote to him
(we decided to exchange vows, to make the wedding "ours")
i wanted to go for a 50's pin up girl look
(in a wholesome way, that is)
with the red nail polish, red roses, and of course - the perfect red shoes
(which i saw at the store months before the wedding
but couldn't afford to buy just like that, for no special reason...
well - i ended up getting them for the most special reason of all!)
my two best friends, who planned the best bachelorette party ever
(i still drool over those heart shaped pizzas and focaccias...)
eden (who's making her zigzaggirl debut)
and sharon, whom you met already
i love how all our outfits had such cool colors
that worked really well together
my stylish parents
jesse with his parents and his lovely sister, nora
who introduced us at her birthday party a year and a half ago
little did she know she affected the universe greatly that day... :)
brotherly-sisterly love <3
and it's showtime..!
jesse covering my face with a veil
walking down the aisle
to the sound of our song
my favorite picture from that night
notice the engraving
man and wife!
and already i found reasons to choke him to death!!!
(but only with kisses)
my stylish dad - isn't he handsome?!
and he's going to turn 60 this year, could you believe it???
this guy came in just to dance for us
(since he couldn't participate in the event itself)
because it's a "mitzva" to make
the bride and groom happy on their wedding night
what a sweetheart!
nora and her good friend knitay (who just got engaged too, to the lovely ruth!)
are rocking it on the dance floor
btw - since you may know by now that
jesse and i love "the princess bride"
we had this scene (sooo funny! i love it!) edited
and we played it just before the dancing part of the wedding began
just another thing that made the wedding personal
jesse is doing his david-dance
by the end of the night i was done with all the pretending:
wearing heels while dancing for hours on end is impossible!
so there you have it - black feet
charming, isn't it :)
i hope you enjoyed at least as much as we did
