Yesterday my cousin Fadhl and Mona celebrated their wedding. It has been a while since we've had a family wedding, so needless to say we were all pretty excited. My favourite part about a Lebanese wedding is the morning part, where the groom picks the bride up from her house with his family and friends behind him. My favourite part about the morning is watching the grooms reaction when he sees his bride for the very first time. We were able to see the bride before Fadhl had a chance and she left us all breathless. There is nothing that makes me happy than seeing a non hijabi bride wearing a long sleeve wedding dress, with her hair up. It is classic, elegant, and absolutely beautiful and that is what Mona embodied. Fadhl looked handsome too lol, (grooms, you should always wear a bow tie). You can literally feel the love in that room and the energy that transpired on the dance floor. Usually weddings are not my forte but I haven't had that much fun at one in a while. 

Furthermore, the dress that I am wearing is a cape dress and if anyone knows me they know my obsession with capes lol. The sequins ankle dress was a statement on it's own but I also had it paired with a cape, which was actually a kimono and I had just pulled the sleeves in. It was a mission to get this dress in time for the wedding but with the help of Sarah Khalil from Hijabefy I was able to get it done. Initially I got worried to wear it because I didn't want to get called Batman lol but don't worry my brother took care of that. But once I put it on as I was getting ready for the wedding I realized how beautiful it felt and how beautiful it made me feel. 

I will add some pics from the wedding, as well from my outfit. I didn't take too many because it was just a busy day but I hope you enjoy. A special thanks to Majida El-Assal for doing my makeup I honestly have never been so happy with someones work. Her work is flawless.
