Nestled just outside of Tel Aviv near Rehovot, Kira & Ben celebrated at Givat Brenner wedding hall where they got ready surrounded by friends and family both from near and far, some traveling all the way from the States and Canada. It was great to see how much community and friendship surrounding them both on this day, including a small army of loyal, beautiful and hilarious friends from Tel Aviv University . Kira & Ben are just at the start of this journey called life, but their gentle wisdom, kindness and empathy is palpable; to spend time with them , is to love them and the shinning connection they share with each other. Its not hard to see this wonderful love they share and the care & affection that wraps around them from their family and friends.
Kira was a calm, glowing, barefoot bride, journaling as the wedding morning came in and preparations began. Leah Neppe did a beautiful job, as always, with hair and makeup, staying true to the natural and light persona of her bride. To welcome in the morning, Ben stood davening, man-bun tied and classic suit fitted, with his closest friends, as he put all of his attention and focus towards the day where he would marry the woman he loves.
With lush surrounding greenery and gentle tones of pink within the stone, we took as many portraits and family photos outdoors as possible (it was pretty hot!), to really captured that natural feel to this earthy wedding. Later, after a beautiful ceremony, where Ben sung to Kira beneath their chuppa, the whole wedding party came together in full celebration, with family surprise flash mobs, friends dressed in onesies, and an abundance of wicked dance moves.
