Stress Free Wedding in the Forest: Michaela & Aviad

Liron Erel Photographer

Michaela and Aviad were wed in the Ben Shemen forest, Israel. They wanted a relaxed wedding, just like they are in their every day lives! “We met while working together at the same bar”, began the bride. Nothing happened between us for a long time until we were both invited to a friend’s wedding. Maybe it was the magic air of a Jewish wedding, but I started to see something between us. Before we knew it we were on a date in a Greek restaurant in Jaffa!”

“The wedding atmosphere was of course MAGICAL”, she continued, “I bet everyone says that, but everything really worked for us that day. The sunset between the trees, the dust on our shoes, the wind in our hair. It was perfect.”

“We wanted our wedding to feel really natural, like a school trip to the forest. We just wanted to hang around and having fun, with no stress.”

    As a fellow tattooed lady with arms similar to Michaela’s, it makes me so happy to see how beautiful she looks. Although I love my tattoos and my look, there’s been a little voice in my head telling me to cover them up for my big day. Although my Fiancé has been adamant that I show them in all their glory (as he’s quite heavily tattooed too) I was worried about how his friends and family who haven’t met me yet might react to such an untraditional looking bride. Seeing this has made my mind up that I should embrace how I look and be proud. Thank you for this amazing blog, such an inspiration to us “alternative” brides xx
