Samira and Alex are two of the kindest people. This is obviously mutually agreed-upon by everyone – their friends, family, and the entire vendor team. Over 200 people joined Samira and Alex on their wedding day to celebrate their love.
One of the most joyful parts of this day was being inside of the bridal and groom’s suite. Stories of Samira, her kindness, and the myriad of things that she has accomplished were the topic of discussion in the bridal suite, while laughter and jokes spilled down the stairwell from the groom’s suite.
There was nothing but love from Muna, Samira’s mom, toward the new son-in-law. She mentioned to me a few times about how great of a fit they were, and while I only spent several hours with Samira and Alex, I could tell that this was the exact truth. They knew each other perfectly, even their rings that they had picked not only complimented each other, but they were perfect replicas of their personalities.
As we moved further into the day, it was time for the ceremony. Although I wasn’t present in the room, I did hear snippets of their vows and they were some of my favorite ones. After each sentence, there were several reactions and cues from the crowd: awws, laughs, and tears. This was the moment they had waited months for: they were officially married. All of the hurrah and craziness of wedding planning had come together, and it was all for this moment. They did it!
Next up: party!
Samira and Alex entered their reception to Kanye, and they went straight into their first dance – music is one of the most important things to Samira and Alex, so each song was very carefully chosen to reflect them and their lives, and a beautifully-choreographed first dance further exemplified how beautiful this moment was for them.
As everybody enjoyed dinner, I watched everybody chatting in this beautiful design filled with pinks, rose gold, burgundy, and sparkled sequins. It screamed “Samira”. In fact, while working with Samira and Alex on design elements prior to their day, Samira explained some of her vision and it all made sense to me; this is her. Delicate beauty in the pink, snazziness in the rose gold, boldness in the burgundy, and unique charm in the sequins. This is why it is so important to really think about those details – it reflects you as a couple.
Samira and Alex took a short break for sunset photos and watching them pose in such a candid way was beautiful. Just watching them and their charm for each other was invigorating.
September 9, 2022 was one of the most beautiful days of my career, and I often wish that I could relive it with them over and over again.
