Kulthum & Sean – 10.11.15

Kulthum and Sean.  What a wonderful couple these two are (not to meant like SUPER photogenic)!  From the moment I arrived to experience and photograph their official Islamic wedding ceremony you could feel the excitement in the air.  Sean couldn’t even sit down.  While laughing with close friends and family he eagerly paced for his bride to arrive. As Kulthum pulled up and walked through the door everyone greeted her with smiles and hugs.  Sean was seated waiting for her and was grinning from ear to ear.  As soon as they saw each other the bride started to tear up.  It was a beautiful moment.

Shortly after the Imam arrived and the ceremony began being spoken in both Arabic and English.  It was lovely.  Both parties and families were beaming.  Once the ceremony concluded, family members and friends all came up to hug and congratulate the happy couple. Various baklavas and coffee was served with the bride and groom getting fed sweets.
Following the ceremony, we left Kulthum and Sean’s photo session and seriously, could these two be any more photogenic?! They rocked the whole thing!  The weather was perfect and the golden hour only added to the glow that this couple shared between each other.  So many fun detail shots too from all of Kulthum’s henna, stunning bridal sari, and bouquet to the fun “I’m his Mrs, I’m her Mr.” signs.  These two were just such a blast to photograph.
We left our last location and headed to their reception at Yiannis Taverna where everyone had gathered for dinner, family photos and sweets.  It was a fantastic night and I couldn’t be happier for these two.  Congrats again Kulthum and Sean!
