I walked joyfully toward the wedding in Al Badia Golf Club, super excited to photograph a venue with a pond on one side and Dubai’s skyline on the other. As I got closer, my heart and jaw both dropped. I couldn’t find the bride & groom’s table, few tables had no centerpieces, no lighting, high level of pressure, and people were running around everywhere. In the midst of all, I found Dana, the managing director of Sia Weddings, who was busy trying to finish everything.
As I approached her with my camera and gear bag, she hugged me tightly and told me that she was only given two hours to turn the outdoor venue into a wedding reception and only has one hour left. I smiled because I had no doubt in her abilities & got busy with photographing the details of the wedding to catch the last bit of sunlight.
Within an hour, the place was complete turned around. Seriously! I passed by Dana and she asked me “What do you think?!?” and all I said “This is amazing!!!!” If you see the number of details she managed to put together so creatively and with enthusiasm & patience, within two hours, you can only imagine what she can do in 5-6 hours time span. Everything was perfectly in right position. It won’t be an exaggeration if I say that Dana is the girl who can do wonders. FoReal!
Don’t believe me??? See the following photos for yourself. It is hard to believe that all this was done in such short time.
To put cheery on top of the icing, here is a video trailer.
Oh Dana, I adore you for your capabilities & talent.
