Summer, pools, ocean, pastels, pineapples, parties- weddings! Weddings are a cute concept, but the concept of a wedding combined with a tropical pool and lot of treats, that’s something amazing! Add thinking outside the box and a bunch of cool ideas and we have the gorgeous wedding of Michal and Or.
Michal and Or met seven years ago in the army. Michal served in the Nahal Brigade and Or served as an officer. Michal says that she and Or spend so much time together and the wedding day was no different- it felt so natural and happy. The wedding day arrived in perfect timing for them.
Michal wanted a colorful pool party to celebrate the happy wedding day. She chose pastel colors and incorporated a tropical atmosphere into the wedding. Michal’s sister Lior helped prepare the decorations for the wedding day. We love the watermelon and pineapples you can find throughout the reception- they definitely add a tropical feel to this summer wedding!
The morning of the wedding went perfectly. Michal got ready at her parents house with her mother, two sisters and her closest friends. At 6:30 in the morning the makeup artist and hairstylist came. When Or came later on in the day he said it felt like they were going on their first date even though they have been together for seven years. He was so excited it was crazy.
The wedding ceremony was extremely important to Michal and Or. The couple decided not to get married through the rabbinate and they did not have a Jewish ceremony. They did however have a chupah and created their ceremony around meaning and love. The ceremony was conducted by one of Michal and Or’s good friends, who was also included in the process of figuring out the meaning of their relationship and also planning the ceremony. The ceremony was the highlight of the wedding and was extremely moving and emotional.
We hope you enjoy Michal and Or’s pictures just as much as we did!
