Everyone says you should marry your best friend. For Shira and Yoni, this couldn’t be more true! Their romantic Modern Orthodox Jewish wedding was the culmination of years of best friendship. Photographer: Jeff Kolodny Photography, Inc.
The pair first met on a Hillel-sponsored trip to Israel, and remained best friends…until they began dating of course!
Modern Orthodox Jewish Wedding Ceremony
Yoni brought her back to Israel to propose, and this beautiful modern Orthodox wedding was the result!
The pair were married by Shira’s grandfather, a rabbi who also officiated her parents’ nuptials.
Eden Roc Hotel was a beautifully picturesque venue, and the historic site where Elizabeth Taylor got married!
Jewish Wedding Traditions
The couple incorporated many Jewish traditions, including a bedeken, tisch and ketubah.

They also enjoyed Israeli and American music at the reception.
Shira’s favorite wedding detail was her gown! She had it specially made to add these beautiful lace sleeves and build up on top of the bodice.
Shira hoped the bridesmaid dresses would show off each of the ladies’ personalities, just like her own gown did!
This mix of champagne and metallic gowns was cohesively eclectic, and the bride was thrilled with the look!
Much like the wardrobe, the reception space was elegantly modern while exuding a soft romance.
Gold, ivory, and soft pink created a romantic art-deco motif.
Even the wedding cake had a gracefulness, with crystal details and classic sugar flowers.
Having a coffee bar is such a thoughtful addition to the dessert service!
Shira and Yoni had a beautiful wedding, filled with romance and love; we are so happy to have been a part of it. Mazel Tov to the happy couple!
