From the bride, on how she met her Raja: 

"I met Zayad at a restaurant when I we were in middle school. We became best friends and when he was about to leave for college I realized he meant more to me than just a friend."

On a memory from the engagement:

"Zayad is allergic to everything! At our engagement party he had eaten some mithai and had an allergic reaction, I was frantically running around the hotel looking for Benedryl!"

On help from family and friends:

"My sister and cousins planned an amazing Moroccan themed bridal shower for me and it completely blew me away! It was so well planned out, with a belly dancer and all! Also our families put together an amazing skit which hilariously went through our history together, I watch the video all the time! Zayad and I were really lucky to have both of our families so involved in the wedding. It felt like everyone had a little part in it!"

Get ready with these lovebirds, up next!
