Tareq + Anna officially first spoke to each other at an Arabic church party in Miami after previously seeing each other at several other family functions. In conversation they noticed that they both shared the same values and hit it off. Similarly, they are weird, unique, and silly, but always feel like they can be themselves in front of each other. Tareq + Anna are best friends.

Tareq proposed twice. The first time was unexpected, he took Anna to Louis Vuitton and picked a shoe for her to try on. Little did she know, was that he had snuck the ring inside of the shoe box. When she opened the box she saw the ring and looked at Tareq who was bent down on one knee. The second proposal was expected and formal, he asked Anna’s father for her hand surrounded by both of their families.

Tareq + Anna’s Christian Arabic wedding was magical and exotic at Kapok Special Events! They were initially drawn to this location because it reminded them of the glitz and glamour of their Arabic culture and knew immediately that this was where their Arabian Nights vision was going to come to life. Their reception was full of energy brought to life by a belly dancer, tabel drummer, Arabic dancing and dabkeh!

Congratulations to the Tareq + Anna, best friends and now HUSBAND AND WIFE!
