Hanan got ready at her parent's place surrounded by beautiful pink roses from her mother's garden. She had such thoughtful cufflinks made for her fiance - now husband - Said, engraved with the words 'happiness' and 'kindness', which is what 'Hanan' and 'Said' mean in Arabic. You two are indeed the kindness people I've ever met, and it showed in the amount of love and happiness overflowing from your family and friends as they watched you two tie the knot at your wedding last weekend. Thank you so much for allowing me to join in on your special day!
Being an interior designer and a creative person in general, Hanan designed and made all the lovely details that she always dreamt of for their wedding. From the golden vintage sea shells to the perfect hashtag #cruisinwithSaidandHanan, this wedding will surely get any nautical fan excited.
They had a custom-made logo just for them!
Versace, a perfect choice for a chic bride.
Said = Happiness and Hanan + Kindness. Isn't that just so perfect!
Hanan's mother and best friend helped her get ready for the big day.
Hanan and Said opted to have a first look before the festivities. Said's reaction is why I encourage all our couples to do this!
Because of the first look, we had plenty of time to fully enjoy their portrait session. We walked through the lush Ornamental Farm and enjoyed an hour of fun and relaxation before the main event.
A live dance group welcomed the bride and groom to the party!
These girls could have totally been Hanan's bridesmaids with their mismatched blue tones!
Let the party begin!
