It excites me so much to see a love built with passion and adventure. Sahara and Saad are beautiful newlyweds who encompass the qualities every new marriage should have. I was able to capture their stunning Herrington on the Bay wedding in North Beach, Maryland.
The couple unintentionally met in Ocean City, Maryland on Memorial Day Weekend 2011 where they instantly connected. Their relationship grew throughout that summer. Soon after, the two realized how impactful each was on the other’s life. Sahara and Saad taught each other over the last six years how to be stronger, more caring, and forgiving.
The couple’s Moroccan-Afghan wedding was a presentation of adoration and gratitude for family and friends. This was an emotional time for their family due to Sahara losing her father to cancer after their engagement. Nevertheless, the atmosphere of the day was nothing short of joyful and romantic. From the delicately-placed succulents to the Moroccan chicken and décor, the wedding embraced all details of their profound marriage.
Guests were surrounded by the peaceful elegance of neutrals and soft pinks in a rustic, yet graceful setting. During this Herrington on the Bay wedding, all were given the opportunity to experience a traditional American ceremony and an infused cultural ceremony. The night was topped off with an unforgettable reception with divine cuisine, dancing, and entertaining festivities.
I know Sahara and Saad will continue to flourish as they create long-lasting memories through their new family and business ventures. It was a pleasure to work with such a vibrant and adoring couple; I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
