Sara and Mayan met through work and fell in love! Sara made the flower arrangements and the decorations for the wedding. Mayan’s mother and brother and sister in law flew over from Israel! I love how simple and soft this summer garden wedding is. Sara’s simple wedding makeup and soft (DIYed) romantic curls in her hair were the perfect touch to this beautiful Maryland wedding.

One of the reasons why we chose the venue because Mayan’s name in Hebrew means “fountain” and he is a Leo, so when we saw that the fountains had lions on them, we loved that! So fun! The venue is just amazing and the garden is so beautiful. We fell in love with the flow of the property and the luxury of being able to have everything in one place for the day’s events. I wanted bright and happy colors but also an elegant touch, so we kept a bright color scheme for the flowers and details kept a “bright and fun yet sophisticated” theme throughout.
We kept things pretty traditional yet simple as far as the ceremony, but our timeline was nontraditional. We wanted to have cocktail hour before the ceremony and wanted to be there for it to mingle with our guests. So it was nice to spend time with them before the celebration started! I wore a different dress too so that no one would see my wedding dress until I walked down the aisle. :)
