Tell us about the inspiration behind your dress, was it easy or hard to find your dream dress?
The first thing I checked off the wedding to-do list was the dress. In my search for it, I never carried photos of a specific dress, nor did I have a certain silhouette in mind.
I was open to all options but knew that I wanted something that was lightweight, feminine and memorable, which is how I landed at this dress with the delicate fabric and dainty floral detailing, and the oversized bow that added an unexpected element to the otherwise classic gown. For the veil, I went for a long soft tulle one with pearl embellishments.
Where did you have your wedding and what was the theme?
For the venue, we went with the timeless InterContinental Hotel. I never liked the idea of having a wedding theme and always preferred keeping it simple with a classic ambience. One thing I wanted to do with the setup was to reflect the venue’s crystal and metallic elements, so our guests saw a lot of clean-cut décor, silver and reflective surfaces.
I must mention that, after meeting with many planners, we found ourselves the most comfortable with Kempinski Flowers, who had planned our engagement party a few months prior, and they did a phenomenal job at executing the idea we had in mind.
What was your favorite moment of the wedding?
Although it was a whirlwind of emotions that left everyone in tears, I will always cherish the zaffeh part at my house, it was an incredibly special moment. Another one of my favourites was the Circassian dance part, which we surprised our friends and families with.
It is really difficult to choose moments as I loved every minute of that night and wish I could relive it again and again. We made it a point not to worry about anything that entire week, and just enjoyed being surrounding with so much love and happiness.
Thank you so much to the lovely couple for sharing moments of their big day with us, wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness.
