This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot the wedding of Hala and Omar. It was a modern Muslim celebration at the Grand Marquis Ballroom in Garner, NC. I’ve been looking forward to shooting this wedding since I met them back in March. Omar has a contagious enthusiasm and Hala has an exotic beauty that I couldn’t wait to photograph.
We started by going to Lake Benson Park to do some portraits of the bride and groom. Hala was an absolute trooper to brave the gravel paths in 4 inch heels. I love the results!
After that, we headed back to the Grand Marquis for more inside portraits. All you car buffs will appreciate this shot:
Isn’t Hala beautiful?
I love the reflection of the couple in the marble floor on this shot:
Grand Marquis always does a fantastic job. This is the sweetheart table for the bride and groom:

One of the things I love about Grand Marquis is the balcony and staircase. This is the view from the staircase of the sweetheart table as the bride and groom dance in the background:

Think Omar likes this song? 🙂
This little guy is the son of clients whose wedding I shot about 3 and half years ago, Ali and Yasmine:
Congratulations again to Omar and Hala! Have a great time in Bora Bora!
