Clint’s surprise proposal to Mariam during a poker game was just the start of the couple’s thrilling “I do” experience. Mariam, who met Clint at a midtown pub just a couple of months after she moved to Houston from Iraq, where she grew up, knew from the moment she saw him that he was the man for her. And when the couple finally tied the knot, four years later, “Everything was special to me,” she says. “The color and decor were so romantic—just how I dreamed they would be,” she says of their Bell Tower on 34th ceremony and reception. “Everything was so magical.” Big thanks to fabulously talented Houston photographer Alefiya Akbarally of Weddings by Alefiya for the gorgeous photos of this gorgeous wedding (and check out that beaming bride—her smile says it all!).
