Meet our wonderful and adorable bride Elit from Boca Raton Florida who got married at the Eden Roc, Miami earlier this month! She went barefoot, down the sandy isle on the beach and looked simply extraordinary in our Tulia gown! She is one of the most ardent admirer of Galia Lahav and she just melt our heart with a special ending message that you can read at the end of the interview… She also joined amazing pictures so you can have a taste of her special day!
And first, a little bit of history… How did you met your husband?
My husband, Yarden, and I first met 7 years ago through a mutual friend. He moved here when he was 12 from Tel Aviv, I moved when I was much younger from Kibbutz Lehavot Habashan. We were friends for about a year ( I was secretly in love the entire time), and eventually we began dating in May 2010. Yarden was my first boyfriend, my first love, and even though I was naive, I knew someday we would get married. He proposed in August of 2014 but we waited until December of 2015 because of my medical school. He is always patient and he understood that I would need some time planning the wedding while spending most of my days in the hospital.
Why did you choose Galia Lahav?
The first thing I seriously did for the wedding was make my appointment for the Galia Lahav Trunk show in January of 2015. I did not have a venue, a caterer, nothing. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to walk down the isle barefoot in the sand wearing Galia Lahav. If you knew me, you would know that I am the most detailed person in the world. I pay attention to every line and every angle of everything I do. Galia’s designs have always taken my breath away, the women wearing her dresses seemed as unreal as the gowns they were wearing. I fell in love with the intricate patterns and amazingly specific architecture that was evident in every design. I tried on multiple dresses from Galia’s collection at the trunk show. I remember I had grabbed a dress off of the rack that ended up not being from Galia’s line and I could tell immediately when I grabbed it to try it on, that it was not even close in comparison to Galia’s dresses. I never even put it on. Needless to say, I finally put on Tullia and I could not believe my eyes. I felt like a lock and key, a perfect fit. I am such a self conscious person yet I never felt more beautiful. for once, I felt beautiful.
Give us 3 words that could describe your dress:
To describe my dress in 3 words is such a difficult task… but I guess I would say: Captivating, Majestic, and Stunning.
And here’s her special and so touching message:
“I have always been an awkward girl, not confident at all, looking down most of the time. I have never felt beautiful and honestly feared that on my wedding day, I would feel self conscious like I always do. I never once looked in the mirror and loved the girl staring back at me… until I put on my dress. I am not a perfect girl, I do not have a perfect figure, I am not tall I am not very thin, I am a woman, and for the first time in my entire life I felt like a beautiful woman.
I know I couldn’t have felt that way without Galia Lahav, so I wanted to just say thank you. you are an artist in every sense of the word, and you made a difference in my life. I will forever look back at my wedding pictures and love the girl in the pictures. thank you.”
