There’s no doubt that the magic of Moria and Vlad’s wedding lies in all the small details and the creativity that is present in each and every frame. Moria and Vlad met through a mutual friend who insisted they should get to know each other although they were not very cooperative at first. The persistence paid off as they ended up engaged not too long down the line. Vlad proposed almost a year ago, on New Year’s Eve during a trip to Copenhagen. He planned to propose at midnight at the city central plaza, however when he realized it was going to be hectic with everyone around, he asked a passerby to take their picture. It turned out to be a good idea as Moria thought they were just getting their picture taken with the fireworks in the background, however she was surprised with a very romantic proposal which was caught on camera.
After a wide search for the prefect location, Moria and Vlad chose Derech Eretz, just off foothills of Judaean Mountains as the natural setting for their intimate wedding. Although they are both from Tel Aviv, which seems to be like the obvious choice of location, they just couldn’t resist the classic- European feel of the place. Once the date was set, they were free to take care of the fun bits of planning a wedding. They chose Sim Sisters to design and create all the beautiful details of their event. We particularly loved the timber seating cards which were in the spirit of the location, the confetti cones, the bohemian centerpieces and more. Creative photographer, Roman Balashov, who is also a part of our dream team, was capturing their most magical moments as you will see below. He even captured some moments on film camera!
Moria’s wedding look was gorgeous with a dress that was purchased from one of our favorite stores – Free People, and alterations that were done by Michael Polkanov. To complete the look, Moria ordered her shoes from the Belgian designer – Dries Van Noten.
After their intimate event, they continued to celebrate at a Tel Aviv bar with their closest friends. Moria, who was extremely nervous on her wedding day, wanted to give some of her insights to future brides, and she says that most importantly try to remain calm and sleep well before the big day. In addition, speaking from her personal experience as a photographer, Moria advises not to compromise on the photography and to choose a professional, after all it is the one precious memento that you have from your big day for the rest of your lives. All of the magical details of Moria and Vlad’s wedding created a beautiful – offbeat wedding album with so much style and love.
