Today on the blog we are happy to feature Melodie and Ohad’s Jaffa wedding. Melodie, originally from Paris, came to Israel to study for her masters degree. She met Ohad during her studies but it took two years for their friendship to develop into a romance.
After a mutual trip to Paris sparked the relationship and eight months later the two were engaged. Melodie and Ohad’s wedding celebrations began with an intimate ceremony at the Paris city hall followed by a cocktail at the Paris home of Melodie’s parents.
The two then got on a flight to Tel Aviv for their main event – a Jaffa wedding at the Caliph in front of 230 family and guests from all over the world. Melodie’s dad is a fashion designer and together with Israeli designer Dani Mizrachi they created Melodie’s bridal gown.
Melodie and Ohad didn’t see each other for the entire wedding week, and met only at the moment of walking down the aisle to the sound of Led Zeppelin’s song “Thank You” which was sung live at the ceremony.
We can only imagine how sparks were flying in the air the moment when they met walking down the aisle…
Melodie and Ohad are now moving to NY to pursue their careers, we wish them the best of luck and thank them for sharing their beautiful Israeli wedding with us.
