Hagir & Medhat’s Wedding at Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, VA

Medhat & Hagir had one of the more interesting weddings that I’ve had the privilege of photographing. It spanned two days!

Day One

Day one was much more akin to what Americans are used to, but not without a heavy infusion of cultural creativity. There was no ‘ceremony’ so to speak. Rather, Hagir and Medhat walked into the reception hall and took their seats on a stage in front of their guests and were welcomed and congratulated by them. All of this was followed by lively dancing and even a professional belly-dancer!

Day Two

The second day was far more traditional than the first. During the second day’s ceremony, Hagir changed into a number of different outfits and performed a special dance for the guests and her new husband.

Due to the personal nature of the second day, Hagir asked that I be very selective with which images I shared here. These images are some that she reviewed and approved. They give a good sense of the event.
