We’re always looking for trendy and topical weddings to feature on premierbride.com. When we saw the photos from this wedding, we knew we had to share. Not only is it a beautiful wedding, it’s a wedding done abroad in Israel that celebrates tradition, culture and beauty.

NBA Star Omri Casspi, who plays for the Sacramento Kings, wed his Israeli girlfriend Shani Ruderman in June 2016 in Caesarea, Israel where they hosted a ceremony at al hayam which means “on the ocean”. Their close friends and family joined them for the ceremony and King of Italian themed dinner. It was very romantic and had an abundance of beautiful flowers throughout the venue. A mouth watering kosher meal was prepared by Chef Shiv Zelef.

The reception was decorated with purple crystals and done in the luxurious flavor of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas designed by Orit Yaari. An additional 500 people were invited to the the party after the dinner where Shani and Omri first slow danced to famous Israel singer and then the party began and were entertained by two DJs.

The Bride walked down the isle in a beautiful gown designed by Inbal Dror. The Groom complimented his bride with a custom made suit from Astor & Black.
