Kara & Hamid’s wedding previews

From the bride ~

Our first date (suppose to be just dinner) turned into 5 hours of us talking and laughing . We had instant chemistry. Over the following weeks, my heart told me I had found the man I wanted to marry. I knew within two weeks I was in love. I confided in my MOH Becca’s MOH that I felt it strongly. She too knew within weeks when she met the one, and although I never ever believed in that – deep down I knew. Hamid slipped up and told me he loved me on our 6th date. My shocked expression said it all, “too soon!?” He asked,”too soon” I responded. On that drive home I realized in fact, it didn’t feel too soon. It felt right. Over the coming months between his final year of his PhD and immense struggles within my family, we grew stronger. The adversity made us realize we were great life partners. We got engaged just after Christmas. Setting our date for almost 2 years out. Upon my moms cancer diagnosis, we moved the wedding to the time window doctors advised. We have received so much generosity, love and support. We thank you for being on this this journey with us!
