Congratulations to Areej and Noor on their recent nuptials in Mexico! This gorgeous couple celebrated to the beat of a Mexican drum, while honouring their Arabic roots. Please check out some of their gorgeous photos courtesy of Melinda Le’ Photography.
And here’s a unique account of the wedding as told by the fabulous, Melinda Le’…
“After an AMAZING night at the Rehearsal Dinner, we woke up rearing to go for what I knew would be a beautiful day on the Mexican Riviera. Instead, what we woke up to was RAIN, RAIN and MORE RAIN!!! There’s one thing that I’ve learned in my tenor of being a wedding photographer and that is YOU CAN NEVER CONTROL OR TRULY PREDICT THE WEATHER!!!
Areej and Noor were calm and collected as they noted the torrential storms upon us. I have to admit, I was probably a little more heartbroken then they were, as I had previewed the GORGEOUS beaches, the day before and had mapped out just where I would photograph their formal portraits but as I said before Mother Nature has a mind of her own and she said RAIN! So the old analogy came back to me … what do you do when you’re given lemons …. MAKE LEMONADE and that’s just what we did!
Areej and Noor had a beautiful ceremony full of color and lively Arabic culture. The procession was moved into the hotels lobby terrace. The reception followed in one of the hotels lovely ballrooms. The couple partied the night away with family and friends and enjoyed the “true essence” of their wedding day. Love, joy and commitment. No amount of rain, storm or sleet can take away the real meaning of a wedding day.”
