There was something about them…
Something very special!
Their body language around each other was absolutely adorable that
I couldn’t held back but smile at their every gesture.
As he sat next to her on the stage,
she moved her big ballgown on the side to make room for him.
He smiled at her with gratefulness. She smiled at him with shyness.
And of course, feeling my heart full, I smiled at them! ❤
Haitham & Ghaneema’s grand wedding was celebrated at Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. The super talented Haifa AlMarri from Afkar Events impressed all the guests with the creatively executed kosha/stage design and extra attention to details of ballroom entrance and centerpieces. Ghaneema looked breathtaking in her Jacy Kay bridal gown, Miu Miu heels, and carried an immensely unique bouquet ❤

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.
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.
Dearest Dana & Saif,
Thank you for having me document your beautiful wedding. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing and capturing your beauty and love. You two make a super cute couple and I pray that you continue to cherish each other. May Allah bestows his bounties, blessings, love, and care upon both of you, always & forever. Ameen!
I’m blessed with the most beautiful clients, Alhamdullilah.
But these twoooooo…..they both are something extraordinary.
She looked like a mixture of Anjelina Jolie and Ashwariya Rai. Deep eyes, model-like features, courteous nature, a smile to die for. He looked like a prince charming; strong jawline, polite attitude, and a smirk that turned into a sincere smile every time their eyes met.
It won’t be wrong to say that the sparks turned into flames when they both are together in the same frame. They complete each other. As in Picture Perfect! Or Perfect Picture. Whatever you call it, the beauty definitely doubles because they are together. In love, forever!
Asma & Mohamed celebrated their lovely wedding at Aloft Hotel, Abu Dhabi. The kosha/stage/ballroom was decorated by The Wedding Venue. Asma wore a breathtaking bridal gown customized by Jacy Kay and Louboutin shoes. My team, I, and allllll the guests had to take deep breaths to take in so much of beauty mashaAllah. I can only imagine what happened to Mohamed’s heart…
Dear Asma & Mohamed,
You both are not only beautiful on the outside, but inside as well. On behalf of my team & I, a hugeeeeeee Thank You for introducing us with so much beauty and love. I wish and pray for your joy, peace, love, happiness, health, prosperity, and alllllllllllll the good things. Because two beautiful human beings like you deserve nothing but everything beautiful ❤ ameen.
As I looked from my camera’s viewfinder to photograph her getting ready shots, she looked up in the mirror and I gasped for breath. She looked so breathtakingly beautiful (mashaAllah) with the hair and makeup done although she was still in a t-shirt and yoga pants.
She smiled then asked “Chee wa choo?” leaving me utterly confused. I asked her what she meant by ‘chee wa choo’ and she looked in the mirror with wide smile saying this is ‘chee’ and then smiled a little less and said ‘this is choo.’ I bursted into laughter and told her she looks stunning with either ‘chee wa choo.’ It became our inside joke, made us laugh for the rest of the night, and oh yes, the photos came out amazing (courtesy of both chee & choo).
Ayesha & Tariq celebrated their wedding in Saint Regis, Abu Dhabi. Their ballroom was decorated by Hamasat weddings. Ayesha wore a gorgeous bridal gown by Ezra Fashion, Dubai & shoes from Saint Laurent. I really liked her idea of party favors with roses in a glass jar and logo of her and Tariq’s initials in Arabic letters were found in different details.
Dear Ayesha & Tariq,
Thank you for inviting me and trusting me for documenting you wedding. You two are so sweet and totally amongst the most politest people I’ve ever met. I pray that the Almighty showers his endless blessings & bounties on both of you. May you both live a life full of happiness, love, and laughter with Chees wa Choos 😉
The bridal suite’s bell rung followed by a man screaming something in Arabic outside the room as I photographed the beautiful bride’s formals. I looked at my assistant with shock as to who it might be. Within split of a second, the bride said something back in Arabic out loud and our heads turned back to the bride in shock. Both of them started laughing.
In that moment, I knew that the chemistry & understanding they shared can’t be stopped by closed door. Being on the opposite sides of anything didn’t matter. They were one. Meant to be together….
Mariam is the girl who believe in details. Her wedding was full of details which Mariam spent months of planning and collecting from several countries. With gorgeous display for her jewelry to hand-writing a personal message in Arabic on those displays, she made sure her love for Matar is expressed with its full intensity.
Mariam & Matar’s wedding was celebrated at Beach Rotana Hotel, Abu Dhabi and was decorated by Dream Wedding Services. Mariam was beautified by the very talented Asya Shah. Mariam looked stunning in her custom made gown from KSA, Chanel shoes, and her beautiful bouquet/maska from Fiore Design provided a gorgeous pop of colors in the photos.
Dear Mariam & Matar,
Shukran (thank you!). I know these are two very simple and overly used words but I said it in Arabic because you said words are more powerful when said in Arabic. You two are perfect – both individually & together. I had super much fun meeting both of you behind my camera, sharing the joys with your family, and it was my honor to document your wedding. May you keep sharing hand-written notes, out-loud-yet-secret-jokes, and eternal love.
Her every move was delicate. Her walk subtle. With sparkling white teeth, bright amiable smile, and deep deep deeeeepppp dimples to die for, she was full of beauty. If I were to write about the peak of gorgeousness, I’d simply write Reem’s name.
“I hope your brother is as good looking as Reem is…..” I warned her sister-in-law. She smiled and replied “He is….you’ll see soon.” I have to admit she was right. Amer turned out to be a handsome guy with a friendly smile, high education, outgoing personality, and a heart beaming with love for Reem.
He pretended to play the piano for her while she smiled. Then he made jokes and finally succeeded in making her laugh – showing off her dimples. They held each other’s hands and danced, mocking to be posing for the cameras, yet so lost in their own world. In the orbit of love…
Reem and Amer’s gorgeous wedding was celebrated at Saint Regis, Abu Dhabi. The stage/kosha was decorated by Mona Sabat Weddings and the delicious cake was from the hotel. Reem rocked her beautiful Michael Cinco wedding gown, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and the diamonds shined more after she wore them.
Here is a video trailer of the details from Reem & Amer’s wedding.
Dearest Reem & Amer,
You two beautiful – both inside out. Thank you for the honor of letting me document your first day as husband and wife. I hope you both keep spreading sparkles, smiles, and love that make people adore & love you. Always hold hands, be the strength of the other, appreciate small things, live your lives to the fullest and love each other, forever…
I loved how sure they seemed of everything.
Her: she listened keenly, spoke softly, smiled brightly, and was open for ideas.
Him: he just watched her. Smiling as wide as he could. Sure of his decision of marrying her.
Me: I watched both of them. And smiled! They are beautiful both inside & out, with great sense of style, and choice of venue, dress, jewelry, and always smiling. In Love! Yes, that’s what mattered the most. Clients like Alyazia & Abdel Rahman make my heart tingle.
Their beautiful wedding was hosted and celebrated at Saint Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi. The wedding decoration and bouquet were done exclusively by Lazord Events, gorgeous shoes by Badgley Mishka, and photography & videography were done by my super talented team.
Here is a video trailer with loads of more details from Alyazia & Abdel Rahman’s wedding.
Alyazia & Abdel Rahman,
Thank you from the core of my soul for your trust and please know that I appreciate our friendship. I loved everything about the two of you, especially the energy and love you both posses when around each other. I pray that your love for each other grows like flowers in the field. May anyone who comes near you feels the warmth, beauty, and fragrance of that love, ameen.
