I was standing at her henna venue in awe & with a wide smile for mainly two reasons.
(1) everything was so colorful, orderly, and represented a super fun night ahead & (2) her family couldn’t believe that she flew me in all the way from Dubai to document her wedding events.
I wouldn’t expect anything less from the super talented wedding planner Khadejah though. Organizing wedding events for others gave her extensive planning experience hence her own wedding events were nothing short of purrrrrrrfeccccctttttt!!!
With tons of dancing, singing, fun, and love involved, here is the first part of Khadejah & Sami’s big-fat-Pakistani wedding celebrated at her parents house in Long Island, New York. The decorations were done by Stylist Events NY, henna by Henna for All NY, cake from Cakeworks Studio, and details by Events by Khadejah.
Can’t wait to share their Baraat & Valima receptions ❤
She was on top of her game.
Everything was thoughtfully displayed and ready on time. The jewelry was carefully placed on the mannequins surrounded by flowers. Poised, composed, with an elegant style, and a heart of gold, she is everything he wished for. And much much more! ❤
Iman & Jassem’s extravagant wedding was celebrated in Ritz Carlton DIFC, Dubai. Essa AlHadad remarkably decorated the ballroom and kosha/stage. Iman was beautified by the super talented Layaly, wore a bridal gown from Hazar Couture, heels from Manolo Blahnik, and carried a bouquet from Fiore Designs.
Dear Iman & Jassem,
Thank you for choosing me to document your big day. It was joyous, beautiful, and super elegant just like the two of you are. May the Almighty showers you both with abundance of happiness, health, success, and love. Forever, ameen.
As I finished their portraits and packed the gear for her entrance,
I sneaked a look at them.
He stood close to her.
Holding her close, whispering in her ears.
I got busy again but with a smile on my face. I didn’t need to understand what he was saying. Because her continuous smile and occasional giggles explained it all.
Tahra & Basim’s wedding was celebrated at Al Jawaher RCC, Sharjah. The ballroom and stage/kosha decoration was done by Forever Events. The sweetheart & super talented makeup artist, Ayesha Bahraini, did a remarkable job with Tahra’s makeup. Tahra wore a stunning Hazar Couture‘s bridal gown and carried a Fiore Design‘s bouquet.
Dearest Tahra & Basim,
Not only you both are amazing human-beings but awesome friends too ❤ I feel so fortunate to meet you, witness your love and chemistry, document your wedding day, and more than anything, I’m so grateful to call you both my friends. May you both always stand by each other’s side, fall deeper in love everyday, and continue to smile and giggle together. Forever! Ameen ❤
The night was blooming like flowers do in spring.
The rain of happiness was pouring over every soul present.
Everybody looked pretty. Everybody looked cheerful. Dancing on the stage, joyously, celebrating the union of two beautiful people. Both inside out. Made for each other.
Arwa & Talal’s wedding was celebrated at The Saint Regis, Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. The stage/kosha decoration was done miraculously by Klassna Events. The hanging cake was one of the highlights. Arwa looked extremely elegant in her custom made bridal gown from Yen Design, Louboutin shoes, and dazzling diamond jewelry.
Dear Arwa & Talal,
Thank you for having me document you first day as husband & wife. A bigger thank you for making the day extremely enjoyable by showing up on time, being ready on time, for your hospitality, smiles, and being absolutely pleasure to work with. I wish you both a lifetime of health, happiness, success, and eternal love.
It was a laughing riot.
From the moment they were stood next to each other in front of the camera, they continued to laugh, together. It was uncontrollable. Adorably delightful. Without a dull moment in between them. From sharing inside-jokes, holding hands, small pecks of kisses on the cheeks, to gazing into each other’s eyes, they seem to be the epitome of love.
Ayesha & Mohamed = Cuteness Overloaded!
Ayesha & Mohamed’s wedding was celebrated at InterContinental Dubai Festival City. The ballroom as well as stage/kosha was decorated by the super talented team of Dream Wedding Services. Ayesha wore a beautiful Esposa bridal dress and carried a bouquet from Dantel Flowers.
My darling Ayesha & Mohamed,
Thank you again and again and again for your friendship, treating me like family, and for all the love ❤ I can’t express how grateful I am for being included in your wedding day festivities, for sharing the laughs with you both, and for watching & documenting your love. I pray to the Almighty that you both continue to fulfill each other’s lives with love, unlimited fun & laughter. Always & Forever, ameen.
Tonssssss of love,
Her deep dimples were all the proof needed for the love to be witnessed in the room.
It felt like the bonfires must have lit,
the angels must have danced,
the doves must have flown,
the hearts must have beat faster,
for every time she smiled, looking at him.
Dana & Saif celebrated their extravagant wedding at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi. The ballroom was stunningly decorated by Tibru Wedding. Dana looked stunning in her white ballroom gown, YSL shoes, and carried a pastel colored bouquet.
