Sara and Beni's wedding .

This week, in honor of Tu Be'Av, we've decided to feature another beautiful real
wedding that makes us feel as if we are going off to faraway places.
and Beni are both Olim Hadashim who moved to Israel when they were
children. Sara is originally from New Zealand and Beni from Germany.
They met seven years ago in Israel and became good friends. It took five
years for their friendship to develop into a relationship, and Sara
tells us she made the move when learning that Beni was about to leave
the country to live elsewhere.
Two months before his flight, she
confessed her love to him abruptly. It took Beni a week to decide what
to do with this information, but after asking Sara out on their first
official date it was smooth sailing.
They both left Israel a few
years ago to study in New Zealand, but after getting engaged knew that
they wouldn't have their wedding anywhere else. A few months ago they
jumped on a long flight to tie the knot in an intimate wedding at Villa
Socca, surrounded by close family and friends that came from all over
the world to rejoice with them.
With these beautiful and happy
pictures by Jen Sladkov we enter the weekend, and wish Sara and Beni
joy, happiness and a great life together.
