Sweet disposition
Never too soon
Oh, reckless abandon
Like no one’s watching you

A moment of love, A dream, A laugh, A kiss, A cry,

Our rights, Our wrongs

A moment of love, A dream, A laugh

So stay there
‘Cause I’ll be coming over
While our blood’s still young
It’s so young, it runs
Won’t stop ’til it’s over
Won’t stop to surrender

The moment I decided to have a disposition in my life, is the moment I decided to become Mrs. Shacked. It was definitely the sweetest moment of my life!

Open your eyes, take a big breath, this is your day!

Continuing from my last blog, my sister and I stayed at a beautiful boutique hotel in Tel Aviv, and woke up after an amazing deep sleep and then the show started:

My hairdresser was the first to come then one by one the room got packed with all of my love ones that came to share this amazing day with me.. I was super relaxed, super happy and just felt like I’m floating on air..

I was ready: Hair style-checked, makeup – checked, dress- checked, earrings- checked, flower buckets checked. Then Yaya came, my love! I was walking out of the hotel while he was waiting for me outside the garden; it was really exciting moment for both of us… Then the photographers start “shooting“ us; we both felt a bit awkward from all the cameras but they got it and quickly we went into the car on our way to the venue… In the car we had this “angry with the world” driver, so we just talked in Chinese to each other, it was funny! 🙂

We arrived to the venue and the place just looked absolutely amazing! The designers did a great job! The drinks and the food started to flow.. And then after 2 seconds (that’s how it felt like) the ceremony was about to start.. Bye bye Yaya see you at the chuppah (the roof-shape stand for the ceremony).

Close your eyes, take a big breath, you are getting married!

All you have to do now is ENJOY it for the rest of your life!

At the ceremony I felt like I’m not really connected to my body, like I’m somewhere in the sky watching my own wedding, and then the rabbi asked me what is my mother’s name and I turn around and gave her my flowers because I didn’t even understand what he was asking me. J On the third time Yaya broke the glass and we were officially husband and wife! Whoop Mazal tov!!!

After the ceremony millions of hugs and kisses came our way; so much love surrounding you that you still can’t believe it.. After the food and the speeches we start dancing and then, all of a sudden came a family& friends video! It was just so funny and moving at the same time, all of them just gathering together for us and made this crazy production!! (it’s in Hebrew but still cool to watch!).

From that moment I just continued floating on air and had the most amazing day of my life… Thank you to all of my family and friend! I love you so much and I’m sooo lucky to have you!  And for my one true love, I can’t wait to spend every moment of my life with you next to me!
