The first time it was during a party in Washington DC. Ronit was relocated to Washington for her Embassy work and Elliot was living there and working in Real Estate. They met at a party of a mutual friend. Elliot was on the dance floor dancing to a Michael Jackson tune and Ronit was captivated.

After a few months, the two moved in together and the marriage proposal was not late to come. Elliot, a true romantic, asked Ronit's parent's for her hand before proposing and once he got their approval he produced a proposal right out of a romantic movie with dozens of friends that helped him stage the moment.The two decided to tie the knot in Old Jaffa because of its "elegance, history and charm". They choose Caliph as a venue, which overlooks the Tel Aviv coastline and guests from all over the world arrived at the magical location.Several years after they first met, Elliot once again began dancing to a Michael Jackson tune, while down the aisle his soon to be wife was dancing towards him. Under the Jaffa sky with a view to Tel Aviv's skyline they said their I - Do's in and the party began.Ronit and Elliot integrated wonderful small touches to their big day such as having their initials sewn on Elliot's suit (a surprise he did for Ronit), sending out travel kits to all their international guests and handing out customized shawls and kippot at the event.We love how Ronit and Elliot's wedding combines elegance and classiness with tons of fun and humor. Take a look at these and see for yourself.Venue: CaliphPhotographer: Eyal GazielBridal Gown: Enzoani Boutique (Washington DC)Video: Hen MakhlufHair & Makeup: Sharon PurShoes: DSWGroom Outfit: Hugo BossGuest Giveaways: Flight Kits, Kippas, ShawlsMusic: Ofri GofferLian Matias is the founder of Hatunot Blog, an English resource blog for planning a wedding in Israel.
