Part 2 of Marwa & Hassan’s Wedding Reception at the Grand Del Mar

October 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Anytime you put me in a room with Middle Eastern Music, Food, and Dancing I am in heaven, but then when you add in working with some of my favorite vendors like Nahid Farhoud of Wedding Elegance and Bess Wyrick of Celadon & Celery then you know it is going to be a beautiful and ridiculously fun event! These two designed an opulent event with tables dripping with flower garlands and elegant decor in blush tones.  They really transformed the ballroom! Two days before their party, Marwa and Hassan had their Muslim ceremony and I got to dance with and really get to know their families there. So at the party it was like I was part of the family.

The Fairmont Grand Del Mar is such a stunning property.  We did the first look down the grand staircase into the garden and to see Hassan’s face when he saw his bride for the first time was priceless!  For the rest of the day you couldn’t get the huge smiles off their faces.  We shot underneath the gorgeous archways that mimic a Spanish Palace and then once that was done, it was just time to relax and party the rest of the evening!

Other than non-stop dancing with a middle Eastern band, (literally their songs were like 20 minutes long and people NEVER stopped dancing), the BEST part of the evening was when Marwa and Hassan surprised their guests by performing a rap duet. Yep, you read that correctly. Even though Marwa is  Neurologist, she used to moonlight as a DJ. So she took over the turn tables and dropped a beat for her new husband and then he just rapped out lyrics he had written for his new bride!  It was AMAZING, they should record an album together:)  The couple that raps together, definitely stays together:)
