Meet Nadine & Khalid! <3
Last Saturday it was my privilege to photograph their Egyptian Wedding! Nadine could NOT stop smiling, and Khalid had a calmness and love about him which was undeniable.
The ceremony as held at the Hyatt, Huntington Beach (also happens to be one of my favorite places to shoot). The grounds are beautiful, and they have a amazing bridge that takes guests over Pacific Coast Highway 1 straight to the sand. Who wouldn't like that?! The ceremony was spoken in both Arabic and English, which was really neat as well.
Shortly after the ceremony and formal portraits, we started with the reception. I have to say that it was unlike anything I had ever experienced before...think about women with swords & candle lit chandeliers on their heads (balancing it yes!), and men with drums and all sorts of instruments all to announce the bride and groom's entrance. It was incredible. I will be posting more images soon...to include the details mentioned above. Check back!
In the mean time....enjoy the images below and feel free to leave some blog-love!
