When I first read Anya and Daniel’s story I almost didn’t believe it but you can truly see the love (and silliness) between these two through the photographs of their beautiful Jewish Wedding.
Anya and Daniel were married in Jerusalem Israel this past May. Kim Bulow planned and designed the wedding, only corresponding with the couple via email! “I only had the pleasure of meeting them two days prior to the wedding when they arrived in Israel! Their story is so romantic … and Anya tells it best:
“It’s hard to say when it all began but I will start with the day I decided to quit my up and coming successful life as a singer in Copenhagen. For years I had been working hard within the music business and things were going in the right direction. Up. I was a red carpet girl, so to speak, and definitely one of the “cool chicks” around town. I had the perfect life, a life everybody else wanted and yet, there was a deep void inside. So one day, out of the blue, I left the stage, not daring to look back … not knowing what was to become of me. I was petrified, so say the least.”
Until one day a young, and very beautiful, man knocked on my door.
“I started studying Hebrew at Copenhagen University and simply taking it from there began to connect with the Chassidic community in Denmark. Today, eight years later, I live a Chassidic life as a modern Chabad girl. A life I would not trade for anything. It has created for me a world of beauty and with its profound wisdom, leaves me breathless and radiant every day, with all its challenges included.”

“Since the Jewish community in Denmark is tiny, by default over the years I slowly grew disillusioned with the prospect of finding love. Until one day a young, and very beautiful, man knocked on my door. ‘Anya, he said. I know who you are, I know what you are about and I know how you live. It is not how you look, but whom you are that I care for. I know there are rules and I will adapt to them. Tell me what to do and I will. I want to be part of your life, the rest is up to you’.”
