This past summer I made a long overdue visit to my homeland, Israel. I was saddened by the fact that I would miss my (amazing, sweetheart of a) cousin Maayan’s wedding by a month but I had the gift of going to her dress fitting at the talented Anat Manos Bridal Couture Studio just outside Tel-Aviv with her and two besties Naama and Oshrat. What started out as a dress fitting quickly developed into an incredible afternoon bridal portraits session featuring Anat’s gorgeous wedding gowns and and I couldn’t have felt more lucky to be a part of it. Maayan, my sweet baby cousin I cherish you more then you could ever know. Seeing you in your wedding dress brings tears to my eyes even as I write this now and every time I look at the images of you. I love you with all my heart.
