The event begins with cocktails overlooking a small pond on the site. KBY used a brown and yellow color scheme to melt into the surroundings.
A view across the pond at the site--Neot Kedumim, a nature reserve located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv that reflects the Biblical landscape of fields of barley and olive trees.

The wedding team was asked the leave the field of barley intact; to do so, they brought in a truck to clear only the section needed to build the ceremony and reception platform.
The wedding's logo was the famous "LOVE" image by American artist Robert Indiana in Hebrew. The logo appeared in road signs, menus, etc.
Indiana's original "LOVE" motif, which was later used on a U.S. postage stamp.

A long view of the event platform, Constructed in several levels, the structure moved guests in a path from the ceremony through to the dinner reception. Imagine Lighting Design contributed stage design and lighting.

The dramatic archway linking the ceremony and reception platforms. Installation of the structures took four days.
The archway was lined with white lattice and 300 pots of white roses.

Guests at the bar. For dinner, each area had its own open-air kitchen, where guests ordered as if at a restaurant. For the 520 guests, there was one kitchen for every 125. Besides the dining area, the structrure included a lounge with coffee and candy bars. Food Art handled catering.
The wedding cake follows the white and green palette.
