WEDDING DATE: 22 September 2018

THE FIRST TIME WE MET: I met Dany 7 years ago through family friends. The day I saw him I was very young and never thought that on this day I would meet my prince charming who will then become my husband! 

DANYS PROPOSAL: 25 December 2016
Dany and I dated for 3 years but then I had to move to Australia. Our love travelled the long distance ,that kept us far from each other for around 4 years.
On 25th December 2016, while I was in Lebanon,he surprised me with the unexpected question : Will you marry me? And I said Yessss!!! Indeed!

THE DRESS: Isabella Gown from Maison Mangala.

After the proposal it was time to plan for our big day and start our wedding preparation. As a bride, my first worry was finding the perfect wedding dress. I personally love tight mermaid style dresses . I thought that a modern tight gown would be the perfect choice. However I never imagined that I would end up choosing a princess silhouette ball gown.The moment I laid eyes on my Isabella Bridal Gown, I absolutely fell in love.When I tried it on,I just knew that it was the one.
This luxurious wedding dress was beautifully detailed in delicate lace and single beads hand beaded. It was elegant, royal and very different from any other bridal gown. 

DESTINATION WEDDING: As my groom and all my relatives live in Lebanon, we got married in our homeland. The wedding was even better than I ever imagined it to be. The ceremony took place in an ancient Cathedral on the Batroun Port, followed by a dinner at an outdoor venue. That day was just magical.The flowers, the lights, the laughter, the love,the ambiance…. Calling it a fairytale is truly an understatement.

RITAS ADVICE: Getting married is the most stressful yet the best experience anyone could have. Just remember to keep it simple,chill and enjoy the wedding preparation and everything will fall into place.

Remember: It is the day when you will be treated like real princess,so make the most of it and don’t let the small details take your happiness away.
