We're in full-on wedding mode now, my dears, because Lightyear Studio is about to deliver the most unforgettable highlights from Sabrina and Mos' beachfront ceremony at the Generations Riviera Maya! Today's Pakistani wedding has been nothing short of breathtaking, and this destination dream is about to prove even more inspiring. Grupo Gama decked the outdoor venue out in white and aqua, and created a bright and breezy mandap complete with a chandelier that made the event Princess perfect. The bridal party donned a variety of Caribbean blue dresses and Raja Mos was handsome as can be in a cobalt-colored tux, rounding out the brilliant blue hues. The blushing bride wore a fabulous, fit and flare gown with all-over lace details, and sported the most romantic updo to boot. Now that Sabrina is officially a Mrs., she and her new hubby will be hitting the dance floor at a reception to remember. We'll be knee-deep in their post-ceremony details when I get back, in the meantime, revel in more of these sensational moments from their I dos in the complete gallery!
Maharani Sabrina, on her Raja's proposal:
"At the time I met Mos, I was going through an incredibly difficult time in my life. My brother had been diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of Sarcoma cancer. About 8 months after moving back to the US, my brother lost his battle to this horrible cancer. I can’t quite express the level of grief and helplessness I felt during that time but I know I wouldn’t have made through it without Mos there as my rock. I'm so grateful that not only did Mos get the chance to meet my big brother before he passed, but that they absolutely adored each other. It was one of my brother's last wishes for me to get married to Mos, and to not wait too long. So, after he passed, it was Mos's idea to run the NYC marathon because he wanted to find his own way of honoring my brother's memory by raising money for cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital. At the finish line, I ran to greet him with a big hug and kiss. He then whispered in my ear that it was the most amazing day and that he wanted to put the icing on the cake. In front of our friends—who were all there to cheer him on—he kneeled down and asked me to marry him."
On her destination wedding style:
"The theme was chic elegance. For the ceremony, we wanted to highlight the ocean as our backdrop so we used ocean blue as the palette. I found my dream dress when my parents were visiting NYC and we went with my sister to yet another wedding dress store. It was the first dress I tried on there but I just knew from the moment I tried it on that it was “the one”.
We asked Malikah, my sister-in-law, to officiate our ceremony, which she graciously agreed to do. It was really special for us to have someone that was close to my brother do this and felt like he was there through her and his adorable kids that were our ring bearers."
On her hair and makeup:
"I had some vague ideas in mind but it did not all come together until I met with my stylist, Marilyn, who was amazing! I met with her earlier in the week to show her some photos as inspiration and talk through the general themes of the wedding. She listened, made suggestions, and was just wonderful to work with throughout the whole weekend."
On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:
"Both Mos and I have stressful jobs and because of this, my parents helped tremendously with the planning process. Although planning a three day destination wedding in Mexico can definitely be hard, it was really nice to have their help and in the process, bring us all closer together as a family. My parents even flew out to Mexico a few months before the wedding to meet with our vendors and make sure everything was on track. It really showed us how much they love and support as we began this journey together."
