Talk about king and queen for the night. Golds, whites, orchids — every detail of this wedding dripped with opulence and, with almost 500 guests, it was truly a night to remember. The groom looked smashing in a traditional tux while the bride glowed in an Ines Di Santo gown. The wedding was overflowing with special, thoughtful touches — like the walls of white roses and the fun facts attached to the table numbers. But what was most clear is how important it was for the couple to have their Syrian heritage shine through, even bringing in a Zaffeh band for the occasion. Check out the FULL GALLERY from photographer Julia Franzosa to see how this East-meets-West wedding showed that two cultures can combine to make something even more beautiful and stronger than either on their own.
