Dear Mariam & Ahmed,

Thank you for being the funniest couple ever. Your jokes, laughs, and hidden love in all of that you do will always put a smile on my face. Take care of each other as you do. I pray to the Almighty that you both love and cherish each moment of your lives to the extreme, ameen.

Al Jawaher, Sharjah Wedding – Mariam & Tariq

I’ve heard the phrase “…love is in the air!”
I understood the meaning while watching both of them.

Only if you could see the way he was looking at her, you’d believe that he wasn’t making promises of bringing her roses everyday. Or stars. Or even moon. He was making promises of brining colors into her life. And light. So she can watch her beauty and reflection into his eyes. All day. Everyday!

Mariam & Tariq’s wedding was celebrated at Al Jawaher RCC in Sharjah. The grand ballroom decorations were done in origami theme by Dream Wedding Services. Mariam looked jaw-dropping in her Esposa bridal dress, stunning Casadie Shoes, and carried a bouquet from Moz Flowers with a unique flower arrangement.Jawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_invitation_cardJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_Dream_stageJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_perfume_tableJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_tableJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_perfumes_decoration_stageJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_origami-detailsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_dreamJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_kosha_decoration_stage_cakeJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_round_table_decorationJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_Dream_kosha_decoration_stageJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_esposa_bridal_gownJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_bouquet_mozJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_band-ringJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_dress_esposa_gownJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_braceletJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_henna_detailsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_ringJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_crownJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_diamondsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_jewelry_earringsJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_ring_shoesJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_moz_flowers_bouquetJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_bridal_shoes_casadieJawaher_Sharjah_Wedding_Dubai_Female_Photographer_Rima_Hassan_esposa_dress_ring

Al Jawaher, Sharjah Wedding – Amna & Nasser

She has a heart of gold.
And a buzzing personality.
He is calm and charming.
Lighting up the room with her smiles and delightfulness, I watched how he smiled when around her. He was swooning over her beauty and lovely presence. And seemed satisfied with his own life which was about to be completed by her in it.

Amna & Nasser’s wedding was celebrated at Al Jawaher RCC in Sharjah. The ballroom decorations were beautifully done by Dream Wedding Services. Amna looked breathtaking in her Ezra Couture bridal dress, YSL Shoes, a stunning crown from Dar Tijan, and carried an absolutely unique bouquet from Moz Flowers with his and her names around it.

Grand Hyatt, Dubai Wedding – Mira & Ali

If I could describe her in one word, I’ll use Grace.
Her aura is calming. And presence so beautiful (mashAllah) that she, in her white bridal gown, was taking breaths away of everyone who came across her.

It might have been the reason that when he entered the bridal suite, he stood in front of her for an entire minute or two to compose himself. The smart and charming prince was speechless. Their eyes met, smiles spread across the faces, and invisible fireworks lit the room. And their lives as well….

Mira & Ali’s grand wedding was celebrated in Baniyas Ballroom of Grand Hyatt, Dubai. The garden themed decorations, high ceiling chandeliers, ballroom setup, and a very unique bouquet was provided by Flower Boutique.  Mira wore a stunning bridal gown from Aiste Couture and shoes from Manolo Blahnik.

Thank you for the smiles and tons of laugh-out-loud jokes. And most importantly, thank you for your friendship!

Thank you for everything! ❤

She has big exotic eyes.
And beautiful smile.
The best part was,  every time she looked at him, her smile reached her eyes.
The sight of him was giving more meaning to her smiles and more depth to her eyes.

She was becoming even more beautiful because of love.
Her love for him.
And His love for her! ❤

Mina A’Salam, Dubai Wedding – Zainab & Saeed

It was like a tsunami of people.
Jumping up the stage as well as each other to grab the money which was being thrown in the air. It’s always fun to watch (well, almost always). At traditional local Emirati weddings, when the men enter the ballroom towards the end of the wedding night, both sides of the families throw money in the air to show their happiness. The kids, their maids, nannies, and waitresses jump to grab that money.

I’ve seen it happening at almost all the weddings. Except, I saw something remarkable happen at their wedding. As the bride was covering her head and most of her face from the men, she couldn’t see the tsunami of people jumping towards her to grab the money. He stood in front of her to save her from being pushed or falling in the chaos.

I watched his confidence as well as prompt reaction and smiled. He stood there firmly like a wall protecting his breathtaking wife with a heart of gold. I had a strong gut-feeling that she must be smiling from under her veil. Knowing that he was there to protect her and be present with her through thicks & thins of life.

Lovely wedding of Zainab & Saeed was celebrated at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam. The ballroom was decorated by Sayedati Weddings. Zainab wore a stunning gown by The Gloss House from Abu Dhabi, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and carried a Fiore Design bouquet.

Dearest Zainab & Saeed,

Your wedding day was as beautiful as you both are.  Thank you for your trust and friendship. I have no doubt that you two will protect each other in all walks of life and be each others’ support. May you both make each other feel strong and always give each the sense of protection that I witnessed on your wedding day. I pray that the Almighty keeps you both blessed with happiness, success, health, and endless love, ameen.

Wedding in Hyatt Regency, Dubai – Noora & Mohamed

I love LOVE.
As much as I like the loud & proud love, I thoroughly enjoy watching two people’s quite love. Its more intense. Pleasurable to read between the lines. It’s the love when two people don’t need words. They speak with eyes, communicate with smiles, and express with small gestures.

That’s exactly the love I witness between them.
The smiles seemed more meaningful when they are around each other.  The gazes are sincere and earnest. Their eyes spoke louder when looking at each other without uttering a single word. Two hearts showing intense conviction of their love for each other….

Noora & Mohamed’s beautiful wedding was celebrated at Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights hotel. Their stage/kosha/ballroom was decorated by ID Designs by Mounia. Noora looked even more beautiful in her stunning bridal gown from Esposa and wore a beige pair of YSL shoes.

I pray that the Almighty showers you both with endless, extreme, and eternal love, ameen.

Lots & lots of Love,

Zabeel Ladies Club, Henna – Noora & Mohamed

When the makeup artist called to tell her that she’s stuck in RAK and won’t be able to make it to her henna party, we all had a panic attack. Alhamdullilah the bride got ready by another makeup artist but we were quite behind schedule hence she was nervous.

He stepped forward smiling and helped her put all the gold jewelry on her. I don’t know if it was his warm smile and presence in that exact moment that put her into so much ease or the slight strokes of his hands as he closed the hooks of the gold necklaces. Whatever it was, it was working great for both; her comfort and my photos.

Noora & Mohamed’s super fun henna party was celebrated at Zabeel Ladies Club. The ballroom was decorated with tons of details by Iqbal Wedding Events.  Noora wore a bridal dress customized and brought all the way from Bahrain and paired it with golden YSL heels.

Dearest Noora & Mohamed,

Once I read a quote by Donna Aradini that ‘find someone who can calm your storm.’ Watching & documenting both of you, and your chemistry, on your henna day – I understood the meaning of that quote in real life. Noora, you are an absolute daaaaarling and Mohamed is such a keeper. You two are the most lovable human beings and perfecttttttt for each other  in every way (mashallah mashallah – yeah once wasn’t enough). I pray that your love grows exponentially and you both Evolve & Grow because of each other’s Love!

Lots of admiration,

A Step Forward…

She had tons of questions…
Being the first one amongst her siblings to get married, she was lost in all the wedding planning process. As I was answering her questions, a past bride of mine came in to meet me. I asked her to join in and the conversation went to a whole new level.

I sat back and watched both of these amazing girls. It was like watching an amateur meeting an experienced one. The crazy idea popped into my head and I asked the bride-to-be if she’d be interested in meeting my other past & future brides to help her plan the wedding. She agreed in a heartbeat. Before leaving, she turned back and said thank you several times to my past bride and myself for being the reason that so much of her stress was reduced.

mina_salam_wedding_dubai_female_photographer_rima_hassan_bride_ring

In that moment, I felt like I was the missing link! I decided that I haddddddd to take a step forward & plan a friendly get-together for my future brides-to-be. To help them connect the dots, help each other with the tiring wedding planning, bring and share ideas to plan and have the best day of their lives.

With that being said, I feel sooooo very nervous & super excited at the same time because I actually did take the step…..the venue has been booked, invitations have been sent, and I can’t wait to see what this small step will result into…

Cheers to a step forward!

The Missing Link,
