He made her laugh with all her heart.
She showed him what true love meant.
Supporting each other through thicks and thins of life, they completed each other.
For years to come, they will become stronger together.
Mariam & Ahmed’s wedding was celebrated at Hyatt Regency, Dubai. The ballroom decorations were done by Elite Events. Mariam was beautified by the super talented Layaly, wore a customized bridal gown, Dior heels, and carried a bouquet from Exotica.
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.
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.
& they lived happily ever after….
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.
I was impressed by her attention to details.
More than that, I admired her style and swag. Every single thing she chose for her henna and wedding was a reflection of her unique flair. To top it all, her witty & fun personality made the day even more glorious.
Hind & Yousef’s henna party was celebrated at Al Mizhar Wedding Hall in Dubai. The ballroom was turned beautifully into a traditional Arabic night themed party with tons of details by Dream Wedding Services. Hind wore a stunning red dress customized from Bahrain paired with SJP‘s shoes. I absolutely loved the lantern she carried instead of a traditional bouquet.
Dear Hind & Yousef,
Thank you for your trust in me and my work. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, your families and friends at your super fun henna party. I can’t wait to share your grand wedding blog with the world. May Allah keep you both happy, surrounded by love, laughter, and makes your lives as colorful and fun as your henna party was.
She was sitting on a white sofa, in her white dress, looking stunning. Like a princess of some WhiteLand. He entered the bridal suite and smiled wide upon first sight of her. Then he came down on one knee to be on her eye level, held her hand, and shared what was in his heart. Although it was all in Arabic but all I could see & hear was love…love….love…. and more love…
I absolutely adore first-look before the entrances. They leave me lost for words. Every. Single. Time. There is always something so exciting and intimate when bride and groom see each other before everyone else does & share compliments and promises. Ghazi & Hind’s first look is definitely amongst my favorites ❤
Hind & Ghazi celebrated their wedding in Dubai’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. Their beautiful wedding was decorated by Stayle Essa AlHadad. Hind looked absolutely gorgeous in her white bridal gown from Solida Bridal Fashions and Prada shoes.
Dearest Hind & Ghazi,
You both are adorbs!!! The smiles & love you both shared made me saying ‘awwww….’ every other second. You are two beautiful people that Allah made for each other. Thank you for letting me watch and document your love story. I wish you a lifetime of happiness, health, success, abundance of cheerful moments to hold hands, to make and fulfill promises of love – together & forever, ameen.
His heart was like a glass.
Clean. Spotless. Filled to the brim with love for her.
When he thought he can’t love more than this, the sight of her as a bride must have added more love to his heart. Because it spilled in the form of tears.
It took Mohamed at least 4 minutes to get himself together again. He wasn’t to be blamed though. Lamya truly is a stunning girl with a heart of gold. It was like a moment of shinning stars and light when blessings were bestowed from the sky as they became each others, forever. They deserved love in the purest of forms hence they found each other.
If I am ever given a chance to write a novel, I would keep them both in mind as my modern day’s Romeo & Juliet….with a happily ever after!
Mohamed and Lamya celebrated their grand wedding in Al Jawaher Reception and Convention Center, Sharjah. Dream Weddings did a splendid job at decorating a geometrically artistic kosha/stage. Lamya wore a remarkable bridal gown from Monique Lhuillier topped with a crown by Dar Tijan, and Gina heels. She carried an exceptionally unique bouquet from Moz Flowers.
My dearest Lamya & Mohamed,
I have no words to describe how I absolutely, whole-heartedly, adoreeeeeeeeeeeeee both of you – and your love! You two have a very special place in my heart. Meeting, watching, and documenting your love has left me speechless. And utterly grateful! Yes, I feel very very grateful because of you & your trust in me and my work. I am indebted for you for opening your hearts and letting me watch & document your love story unfold in front of my eyes. May Allah showers you both with his highest favors & may your love grows deeper and stronger with every passing millisecond, ameen.
Tons & tons of love,
I had met her several times before at weddings.
Clearly remembering her alluring style, I was extremely excited to see what she has planned for her wedding. Only that I didn’t expect to be left in awe & fell short of words...
Suddenly, it was like all the love songs were written for them.
It was adorable how every time she looked up at him, he was already staring at her. She was becoming the smile for his face, beat for his heart.
I couldn’t decide who was more lucky? Hussain for having the ever so gorgeous Zainab by his side? Or Zainab, for having Hussain as her loving life partner. I knew one thing for sure, I myself feel immensely lucky to witness them – looking perfect together!
Zainab & Hussain celebrated their wedding in Zabeel Ladies Club. The elegant kosha/stage was decorated by Flower Boutique and cake was designed by LuCake. Zainab looked even more stunning in her customized bridal gown with drapes of white net around her shoulders instead of a traditional veil. I fell in love with her bouquet, headpiece, and shoes. Everything was as unique & elegant as Zainab.
Dearest Zainab & Hussain,
You two are oh-so-lovable!
I thoroughly enjoyed documenting every single moment of your enchanting wedding. It gave me such joy to meet 5 of my past brides (again) who I proudly call friends and dancing with them on the stage made your wedding day so much more memorable for me. I pray that you both always choose to love, honor, respect & adore each other. May you both make each other feel complete & perfect, ameen.
Oh boy, where do I begin? From the moment I entered the venue I knew this engagement would be one vibrant and lively occasion. Fatma was in the midst of being dolled up when I arrived so I turned to the banquet hall to cover the decor and kosha/stage shots first.
They say “everything that glitters is not gold” but that was not the case here. Everything glamorously glittered because everything WAS gold! From the beautiful ornate candelabras to the little delicately packaged wedding favors everything was gilded in gold and looked STUNNING. The decorators did an excellent job bringing to life the hall at Hilton Ras Al Khaimah.
…and that was only the beginning. I was just about finished shooting the decor when I was informed that Fatma was ready. Upon entering her bridal suite, my jaw dropped. I had yet to see such a bold and daring engagement dress. Fatma wore it confidently, like no other. The royal blue dress was adorned with colorful peacock feathers and Fatma paired it perfectly with matching blue Christian Dior heels. To top everything off, Fatma’s jewelry dazzled from across the room and was hard to miss.
Dearest Fatma and Saeed,
You both made my job so fun that day. Both of you had such bubbly and attractive personalities and I only pray you bring even more life, vibrancy and color to each others’ lives, ameen.
