Inbar Lavi, best known for her roles in Bravo’s Imposters and Netflix’s Lucifer, married Dan Bar Shira in a bohemian beachside ceremony at the Al Hayam in their native Israel.
Lavi first met Shira, a green energy worker, in the sandy Nevada desert in August 2019 at the Burning Man festival. On September 13, 2021, the couple reunited on the sandy beaches of their homeland Israel to exchange vows and celebrate their marriage with 400 of their family and friends.
The couple was Israeli and was connected to their roots. The actress also told the Brides, “Our family lives here, and we were raised by the Mediterranean, which made us who we are today.”

Inbar Lavi has strong ties to her homeland of Israel
Despite living in Los Angeles, Lavi has a stronger attachment to Israel. She stated that her heart belongs to Israel because her entire family and close friends are there, so it is her home, and Los Angeles mainly works.
Lavi and her husband’s love for their homeland is the primary reason for their lavish wedding in Israel. However, because they have many good friends in Los Angeles, the couple also had a small wedding in their garden.
Moreover, in an interview with ynetnews, she was asked how she maintains the Israeli mentality or tradition while living abroad.
She responded, “I’m married to an Israeli man, so at home, we only speak Hebrew, and we’re both very connected to Israel. I also have a fantastic family who has welcomed me and with whom I celebrate holidays and Kiddush every Friday night. That’s what keeps me going.”
