Set at the Tel Aviv Hilton, the wedding was inspired by the bride's fondness for the look of the Anthropologie stores. To suit her, the KBY Designs team came up with an eclectic mix of "urban and romantic vintage," notes KBY Designs founder Koby Bar Yehuda.
Because the wedding honors Orthodox Jewish traditions, the wedding includes a badeken--an intimate space where the bride sits with her mother and sisters and greets guests. Then, the bridegroom covers her face with a veil and the rabbi blesses the couple. For this, the KBY team creates a raised stage in the cocktail area with a flower backdrop.
The cocktail area is a chic mix of Chesterfield lounges with white retro leather furniture.

The event team builds a 14-foot-tall shelf that functions as a "flower shop," which guests see as they enter. Zebra created the custom shelving and walls.

Across from the "flower shop" is series of arches built with white bricks, creating another dimension to the ballroom.
X-back chairs add a dramatic touch,
Custom lampshades hang above tables to add intimacy in the room, with has very high ceilings. Beam Design oversaw the creation of the custom lamps; Eran Klein oversaw lighting design.
The mix of lamps plays a huge role in the event design, adding an industrial edge to the romantic look.
