Her face lit up as soon as he entered the bridal suite.
“Hiiiiiiiii…..I missed you!” She said meaningfully with a gorgeous smile. “I haven’t seen him in a month.” She explained as all the girls present in the room smiled at her excitement. “MashAllah! MashaAllah! You look like a flower…” he uttered when looking at her. Of course, his wide smile was speaking much more than he did, describing his feelings for her.
“He’s cute right?!?” she turned around to ask everyone.
I laughed out loud and said “that’s the last question you want to ask so many girls…” to which she replied “No, I get flattered!”she literally was on cloud nine. Uber cute, I thought to myself. The bride and groom, their reaction upon seeing each other on the wedding day, and their love story, was so intensely unique hence resulted in two things: (1) a grand wedding day that was a reflection of them (2) my heart beamed and did the happy dance.
Mohamed & Afra celebrated their majestic wedding in Madinat Jumeirah Hotel, Dubai. The ballroom was luxuriously decorated with all real flowers and the stage was done in a special 3D projections by LeMariage. Afra wore a stunning bridal gown by Sanja Millican and Christian Louboutin heels. I had utmost fun photographing her absolutely unique breathtaking jewelry.
Dearest Afra & Mohamed,
If dictionaries would have photos next to the words to explain them, I would put your wedding photo next to Cuteness. And Love.
