I so appreciate how seriously Hadiya & Akeel take marriage, and that they still are very, very in love after enjoying marriage for almost 5 years! That is so wonderful!

Now, I must take a minute to highly recommend Samara of By Design Events. She is like a miracle worker! Her attention to detail, organization and just excellence in her job is outstanding! She and her team were flawless!

Ok, I LOVED this idea. Instead of numbering the tables, each table was "named" after special part of Hadiya and Akeel's relationship - a date, a story, a joke, a memory - it was very personal! And I loved hearing what each one meant!

    You and Armin's shots and captions really captured the spirit of Akeel and Hadiya's wedding. They actually made me cry. Can't wait to see the whole batch. God bless and thank you.

  3. Hadiya and Akeel look GORGEOUS! Kristen, your pictures make them look like celebrity, and they were for the day. I want to keep Kristen as my "pet photographer".
