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

As you start this wonderful journey together, I pray that Allah showers his mercy on both of you and blesses you both with a lifetime of happiness, colors, light, & endless love. All day. Everyday! ameen.

Ajman Kempinski Wedding – Mariam & Muath

It was bound to happen…
Her pure heart and beauty are more breathtaking than all the riches of the world combined. The gold and diamonds looked pale when compared to her sparkling eyes and bright smile. The deep dimple on her cheek just added extra flare to her alluring charm.

He seemed completely in awe.
Finding his heart revolving in its own orbit around her. Smiling non-stop, his gleaming eyes were representing his devoted love for her.

Mariam & Muath’s wedding was celebrated at Ajman Kempinski Hotel. The ballroom was decorated by Forever Events. Mariam wore a stunning white bridal dress designed by her super talented mother/designer Aisha AlMuhairi and shoes from Manolo Blahnik.

Dearest Mariam & Muath,

I can’t express how just thinking of you two makes my heart melt. Mariam, your dimples and Muath’s wide smile every time he laid eyes on you make me smile myself. You two are adorable – both individually and double adorable when together. I pray that you both shine more as your love grows inshaAllah. May Allah keeps on blessing you both with infinite reasons to smile together, ameen.

Much Love,

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.

Aloft Hotel, AD Wedding – Asma & Mohamed

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…

Al Mizhar, Dubai Henna – Hind & Yousef

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.

Love,
~ Rima

InterContinental Hotel, Dubai Wedding – Kaltham & Tariq

They stood in front of each other and couldn’t stop smiling.
Somewhat in disbelieve as to how they lived without each other so far. Mostly super excited for finally being officially each other’s and spending the rest of their lives together – as One.

I took a step back and watched.
Her shyness.
His admiration for her.
Their exchanges of glances & smiles.
Promising each other. A Lifetime of Happiness. Friendship. Love. 

Tariq & Kaltham celebrated their first day as Mr. & Mrs. at one of my favorite venues, InterContinenal Dubai Festival City Hotel. Their kosha/stage was decorated by Hydrangea Weddings.  Kaltham looked absolutely jaw-dropping in her Hazar Couture‘s bridal gown, Sarah Jessica Parker shoes, carrying a flower bouquet from Fiore Design.

Al Mizhar, Dubai Henna Party – KoKo & CO.

I love henna parties.
Especially when the bridesmaid are like those of Kaltham’s.
Known as KoKo by her friends, Kaltham is an absolute sweetheart. She looked like an Indian princess in her breathtaking purple skirt embroidered with traditional Indian thread-work and a pink dupatta. I fell in love with her bangles/bracelets.  She celebrated her  super colorful and fun Indian themed henna party surrounded by her giggling & dancing friends.

A huge shoutout to KoKo & Co. for rocking the henna party and showing what selfless and genuine love means. I whole heartedly adoreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee you girls from the bottom of my heart ❤ (yeah, 20 e’s for ya’ll).

I can’t wait to blog photos and videos from Kaltham & Tariq’s stunning wedding. Stay tuned!
