She was smiling as usual despite her nervousness. I hugged her and told her that she need not to worry because she looks stunning. She truly did. In her light purple gown, Menbur shoes, and holding her bouquet – she looked even more beautiful.
I had been waiting for this day…
Fatma’s engagement was one of those parties I was enthusiastically anticipating since I met her. This always-smiling girl with a bubbly personality is an absolute pleasure to hang out with. Never a dull moment with her and I just couldn’t wait to meet who will be the lucky man. Her lucky man.
Yaqoub seemed swayed away by her beauty. And of course by her smile. He couldn’t stop smiling himself. Happy to know that his life was about to be lit up by Fatma’s beaming smile.
Fatma & Yaqoub got engaged in Uptown Mirdif, Dubai. I was in love with all the party decorations. From the love quote by the entrance and her jewelry display, to hanging flowers in tiny buckets, wooden tables, white roses in small vases, party-favors of tea leaves in tubes and mouth-watering brownies, every detail was thoughtfully put together.
Dearest Fatma & Yaqoub,
You guys are simply oh-so-awesome! Seriously. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing both of you, both sides of the families & friends, and your party details. I’m super duper excited to see what both of you are planning for your wedding. I’m sure it’ll be full of details, joys, lots of dancing, and sparkling-broad-smiles 😉
