Jamie and George met unconventionally; through their siblings, who were also in love. After just one weekend, George knew Jamie was special, and the rest was history.
George planned to propose while taking a stroll in Jamie’s favorite park, but coincidentally and unbeknownst to George, Jamie was planning a surprise birthday celebration for him the same night. The groom says, “She stops to look back, and I’m on one knee, ring in hand, asking her to marry me. She’s totally caught off guard, and I tell her how much I love her. It was the perfect moment; within all the chaos, time stopped, and it was just us.” After the proposal, the couple went home to celebrate with their families and, of course, still had George’s surprise birthday party.
The couple’s wedding day, January 29, 2022, began with a pre-celebration of light bites and dancing with friends and family, per Lebanese tradition. The groom recalls one of his favorite moments from the day being another Lebanese custom the couple included: his family walking to the bride’s house with music and dancing to pick up Jamie and welcome her to his family.
For the ceremony, Jamie wore an effortlessly modern Ines Di Santo ballgown with an intricate veil as she walked down the aisle of the grand church adorned in baby’s breath blooms.
The festivities continued at the Omni Houston Hotel with a lavish ballroom reception. White roses, baby’s breath and candles filled the room, creating a romantic backdrop for the evening. A memorable moment for the pair was surprising their newly married siblings with a first dance, which they could not have at their own wedding due to Covid restrictions. The celebration continued with delicious cuisine, music and dancing before the couple headed to their honeymoon to Cancun and Italy.
