Ryan Ray recently sent over the beautiful outdoor wedding of Matan and Victoria for me to share with you on Once Wed. Such an adorable couple!
“Matan and I are vegans and wanted to express this life practice in all the facets of our outdoor wedding, while still being considerate of our guests.We imagined rolling hills, green grass, untouched and unaffected, rustic. The gardens at Boscobel were just that. The guests were serenaded by an accordionist and acoustic guitarist. Branches of jasmine supported the chuppah, adorned by the prayer shawls of our grandfathers. The afternoon was crisp and the sun dappled. The reception tent glowed with votive candles and string lights. We danced the night away.”
