MUSLIM SOUTH EAST ASIAN WEDDING PHOTOS
Farhana is the sweetest bride with the simply the best taste for wedding outfits.
I cannot tell you more earnestly that Bashir is a great friend to reflect upon anything from world events to the minutia of living. Me and Bashir got along famously, as they both are obnoxiously hilarious and are somehow able to get away with jokes that most people simply cannot pull off.
Farhana + Bashir’s spunk and dedication to having good photos meant that we jumped into a car and drove through maddening traffic to make it to the beach before the reception. Sometimes it takes a little extra to get a little extra! Every moment was worth it! Crowds on the boardwalk cheered; the ocean breeze calmed us; and we were reinvigorated to continue with a night of dancing and entertainment!
Love you guys!
