“The answer is simple ‘love,'” said Amine when asked why he chose his bride as his wife. “Michaela has all the qualities that I was looking for in the woman that I wanted to marry. I also went through some difficult times at work and with family and without her I would not have made it through.”
During her wedding day, Michaela wore two handmade crowns from the Ukraine. What a sweet touch!
Michaela wore two dresses on her big day and one of them was designed by someone extra special.
“My second dress was designed in Morocco by my wonderfully talented mother-in-law!,” shared the bride. “The dress consisted of two layers. The top is “Takchita” which was a white silk garment embellished with gold and the second one was a white “Kaftan.” She also customized a pearly Moroccan Kaftan Gold belt. It was just an absolute honor to wear a dress that was customized by my mother-in-law for me. I loved, loved, loved the care and detail with which it was made!”
Michaela wore not one but two crowns during her wedding day and they were both divine!
“The feeling of being a bride is one that I can never forget,” shared Michaela. “I was nervous, happy, worried, joyful and grateful all in one. It was a feeling that cannot be matched and was better than I could have ever dreamed of. I felt like royalty.”
Michaela’s bridal shoe was a beautiful choice!
“The man that I married is loving, family oriented, professional, respectful, driven and loyal,” said the bride. “He has been my absolute rock through some very tough times and continues to be a great support system.”
How great do Amine and his groomsmen look!
