Rustic cocktail area
Some 500 guests enjoy the outdoor wedding, which is staged in three areas at the Neot Kedumim reserve, filled with trees, plants and scenery inspired by the Bible. Here, the cocktail area. Irguney Bamot
oversaw the stages.
The cocktail area is set on a platform featuring different levels. Leather Chesterfield sofas add a rich look.
The cocktail area features bistro-style coffee tables, comfortable chairs and wood bar tables.
The color palette in the cocktail includes peach, cream and green. Here, a look at floral.
As part of the rustic style, this lighthearted sign directs guests to the restrooms.

Part of the drama of the wedding is that guests followed paths from one area to the next, coming upon dramatic new settings. After cocktails, iron gates opened to a 400-foot narrow patch through illuminated pine trees to the wedding ceremony.

Above the dining area, beautiful chandeliers and a dramatic lighting installation ...
The centerpiece chandelier is constructed of 1,000 bare bulbs suspended from different heights. A computer program helped determine where to drill the holes in the piece; the lighting itself was controlled by computer to enable the lighting designer to create different effects.
And the glowing result. Says KBY founder Koby Bar Yehuda, "In large-scale events, I truly believe that it is necessary to create a large design statement, regardless of the table design, etc."
Dining tables include oak tables custom-made for the wedding with white wood legs and oak Louis chairs. Mazel Tale
