“Aysha, are you SHEIKHA Sheikha or is your name Sheikha?!?” I asked.
She smiled politely and said “…I’m a Sheikha!” My eyes widened as this was my second meeting with her. I thought of alllllll the craziness and silliness I probably have had blunted out loud in both meetings. “So…umm…do I call you Your Highness?” I asked again just to make sure if we are both on the same page. “No. I’m just the same Aysha for you.” As the smiles spread across her face as well as mine, I knew we well gel along well and her wedding will be great.
The fun doubled when I met Rashid on the wedding day. “So are you a Sheikh too?” Regretting talking before thinking. He too smiled and said yes. “You look so normal though!” I said bluntly without thinking again. “I mean like a normal guy.” He laughed out loud. I was sure, yet again, that it’ll be a great night.
And to say the least, this royal wedding was beyondddddddd great! Rashid & Aysha got married in the new Zabeel Hall 6 of Dubai World Trade Center. The glorious stage / kosha was decorated by Forever Events. Aysha opted to wear a customized bridal gown with intricate details, Jimmy Choo shoes, and looked breathtaking. The super talented Myriam Fares rocked the party with live singing. The rich combination of red and gold gave a beautiful backdrop for Aysha & Rashid’s photos and video. It won’t be wrong if we say that everything was truly fit for the Prince and his Princess!
Dearest Aysha & Rashid,
Thank you for trusting & hiring me to document your love, your love story (I need a separate blog for it 😉 ) & your magnificent day. My heart beamed every time I looked at both of you looking at each other. Thank you for inviting me as a friend and letting me witness how beautiful your love is. Also, thank you for SnapChatting live with me from your honeymoon in Paris 😀 I still laugh at the jokes we shared on your wedding day & pray that may Allah keeps you both smiling as genuinely and your hearts as humble as they are. Always!
