She wore the last piece of her jewelry and her long eyelashes lifted up slowly – as hands go up while making a dua (prayer) – and she smiled. Her deep dimples added authenticity to her beauty. I smiled behind the camera.
Only if one could see behind his beard, I was sure he had a dimple if not dimples. He also had the same soft smile, polite gestures, and love for her in his eyes. Looking at both of them together, I smiled behind the camera. Again.
They were so very similar. Well mannered, educated, soft-spoken, and sharing lots of love. There was just one difference. He was cracking jokes and she was the laughing one. It was a perfect difference. They were similar yet still complimenting each other. Flawlessly. I smiled behind the camera throughout the night.
Farida & Khalid celebrated their wedding in Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai. The stage/kosha and ballroom was decorated by Essa AlHadad. Farida wore a gorgeous dress from Pronovias and Miss Selfridge shoes. Her bouquet was from Qasr Al Jori.
Dearest Farida & Khalid,
Ahhh….where do I start?!? Meeting, knowing, and documenting your beautiful wedding has been both my pleasure and honor. You two are one of my most sophisticated & fun couples whom I proudly call friends. May the Almighty always showers you with health, success, happiness, and keep your dimples deep with smiles.
