We have the most gorgeous wedding on the blog today: A beautiful location, bride and tons of special details all wrapped up in one lovely post.
Jenna & Avi met in their birthplace, Minneapolis, the land of 10,000 lakes. At a Jewish summer camp outside of Minneapolis they began their courtship, but it ran a short and sweet course as at the end of that summer they parted ways to go back to separate high schools. The old quote “if you love something set it free….” may have some truth because four years later on a run through the woods their paths crossed again, and their love “came back”.
Both seekers of a more spiritual existence, as they dated, they grew more Jewishly,closer to their essence. It was their dream to come to Israel together and after the marriage proposal they knew there would be nothing more special than getting married in Eretz Yisrael.
Amidst the Judean Hills there is an organic farm called Tur Sinai, its terrace spotted with wild fruit trees, clinging with grape vines, boasting herb gardens and smooth stone. Right away Jenna and Avi knew they would be married there. On the eve of her wedding, Jenna and her sister found small smooth rocks and painted them with their guests names’ on it for seating arrangements. These stones mixed beautifully with the wild flowers and candles inside of mason jars that graced each table – stunning.
