marwa and ryan


hello my lovelies!  these wedding posts are long overdue.  i’ve had the most amazing brides this spring and i’m so glad to finally share some of their beautiful photos with you. 

marwa and ryan got married on may 5 at founders hall at charlestowne landing.  marwa was born and raised in egypt and moved to the states for school.  ryan is from here in charleston.  they met through friends and the rest is history.  both of their families were so incredible and i felt beyond blessed to spend this special day with such a truly kind and loving couple. they truly made me feel like i was part of their family for the day.

it was really important for marwa to showcase the blending of their cultures in their wedding ceremony and reception and they came up with some really fun and original ways to do it. i loved it all!

their friends and family watched as marwa’s dad walked her down the aisle to a traditional egyptian wedding song and they exchanged vows to one another in arabic.  (a little side note – the officiant was none other than my husband)  after the ceremony everyone enjoyed some amazing treats from beyond expectations catering including a to-scale replica of the egyptian pyramids made entirely of cheese.  it was incredible!

the music and videoograpy was provided by complete music and video – both allan and pran were wonderful!  charleston uplighting added some drama to the space with green uplighting around the room.  marwa created centerpieces using bright orange calla lillies submerged in glass vases with floating candles.  the room looked so beautiful – just like the couple.  the flowers were provided by keepsake florist.

the party kicked off with marwa and ryan being escorted in by a traditional egyptian zaffa and belly dancers.

finally, the photos were taken by the talented david mandel with ampersand industries.  he was wonderful and i have him to thank for all these lovely photos.  marwa and ryan danced away the evening and left for a honeymoon in northern california.  their wedding was truly lovely.

oh, and david happened to catch this photo of the “super moon” that evening.  just another special touch to the evening.

please see our website and facebook for more photos of this amazing couple’s beautiful wedding.


congrats mr. and mrs. borey!
