Faye and Oussama were connected before they ever met—their families were long-time friends and the pair knew of each other but never spoke until the summer of 2013 when they both happened to be in Lebanon visiting family. “We ran into each other at the beach and instantly felt a connection. We spent the entire week together, and hit it off! Oussama and I ended up dating each other long distance for almost two years,” says Faye.
Faye gave us all the deets on how Oussama popped the question: “It was our two-year anniversary. After dinner, we went home, and once I walked in I noticed one of the rooms had lights strung all over the walls and candles everywhere. Oussama then handed me a Starbucks cup with my favorite coffee cup that said, ‘Will you marry me?’”
She wore a gorgeous strapless Maggie Sottero wedding dress from Weddings by Debbie, and her bridal party wore rose gold sequined dresses.
For their wedding reception, a jewel-tone color palette with gold accents brought depth and glamour to their chosen Art Deco wedding theme.
Favorite moments? “Our traditional Arab grand entrance to the reception. It was so special,” recounts Faye.
Congrats to the newlyweds, and thanks Civic Photos for the beautiful pics!
