Mika and Anton’s wedding in Israel is a little off the beaten path while remaining absolutely elegant. The bride created her own wedding day look with a lace crop top and long skirt. Inspired by fresh flowers, the couple decided to fill their Tel Aviv venue Arugot Bosem with pretty petals in soft pink and yellow hues. Despite a forecast of rain, the brilliant photographers behind We Are Red captured romantic outdoor portraits of the soon-to-be husband and wife.
Mika and Anton
Arugot Bosem, Tel Aviv, Israel
The inspiration for the venue was traditional British posh decor, like the boutique hotel we stayed at when we got engaged. I love flowers so I knew I wanted to get as many flowers as possible but still keep it stylish by using mostly neutral colors. We really like vintage-urban style so we found an amazing house where we took our photos. It also made for a perfect Plan B from the rain!
As for my wedding dress I wanted to look like a bride but still keep it chic and comfortable so I designed my own top and skirt and created the whole dress from scratch with the help of my talented mum and aunt. The result was a trendy-yet-classy dress.
Our favorite moment in the wedding was when we improvised a dance routine somewhere towards the end of the night. One of my friends asked me if I wanted to ask the DJ for any songs and, being the ’80s freak that I am, I asked for “I Want To Know What Love Is” by Foreigner. The music started and we just started dancing and lip syncing. Everybody cleared the dance floor it was like a scene from “Dirty Dancing.” He even lifted me in the air! Because it was late there was no photographer anymore but a friend filmed us on her phone so we have minute of it on film.
The Couple Recommends:
Our photographers Tsuria and Liad from We Are Red were amazing! They came with such a great energy! Neither me or my husband were used to being photographed and we were not thrilled with the idea of it, but these guys made it feel so natural and fun for us. We had such a great time with them we didn’t want it to be over — they just set the tone for the rest of the event for us. The results are amazing. They take beautiful photos and are so talented (I swear they are not paying me to write this!).
Also a shout at our videographer Rony from FilmStill photography who kept me laughing through the whole day, yet kept out of everybody’s way and did her job perfectly, very talented with her DSLR camera!
