Symone, in Love

If there is one thing i love , it’s a really gorgeous real wedding and a beautiful bride, inside and out. And while a wedding is also about the unique details, flowers and decor, this wedding to me is all about the bride, Symone.

A vision in white, her dress oozes simplicity and glamour. Her hair adorned with our Melia hair vine, the subtle lip color and the overflowing foliage bouquet representing love, vitality and a delight to the senses.

I absolutely love this couple, to me they felt in the moment and real

Congratulations to Love

xoxo Raquel

Bridal Maven {Paul Nasr}

“Imagination is the beginning of creation” something Paul Nasr strongly believes in. His weddings are truly beautiful creations of elegance and creativity. With almost 20 years of experience, the team at Paul Nasr have become masters of designing spectaculars with seamless coordination making them one of the most reputable agencies in the region.


We caught up with Paul to get to know him and his work better

Q:What is your wedding philosophy?

It is through my passion that I design weddings, customizing every event with our bride’s needs and wishes at heart. We transform spaces from visions to reality

Q:How often do you reflect your personal taste when designing a wedding?

I reflect my style and personal taste in every wedding I plan, it is what my clients are interested in and seeking. We work great together because we appreciate the same visions.

Q:Do you remember the details of the first wedding you planned?

I do remember the details of the first wedding, it was my first chance to truly reveal a unique style of work and planning , introducing a completely different concept therefore I wouldn’t change a thing about it. It was a perfect wedding then and now.

Q:Where do you go for inspiration to bring something new to every wedding?

My inspiration comes from my everyday life. My imagination is inspired by nature, architectural designs and travels.

Q:How do you approach a bride who has a completely different style than yours?

Because I do not have a specific style for weddings; I start with what the bride is imagining and hoping for then we add a Paul Nasr twist here and there

Q:Please list these factors in order of importance when planning a wedding and why; Budget/Creativity/Execution

In the field of wedding planning, the budget and execution are very much correlated, while creativity is a factor that plays out on its own. We plan every wedding with the budget given to us at hand, however i would place a lot of weight on creativity

Q: If you can plan any celebrity’s wedding whose would it be and why?

I would love to be given the chance to plan singer Adele’s wedding. I admire how she rose to fame at such a young age because of her great talent, I enjoy her charismatic presence and refreshingly elegant style

Q:If you can be a member of a popular music band,it would be . . .

Guns N’ Roses so that I get to play with the legendary Slash! His performances take you on a trip out of this world, i just love his passion and appreciation for music

xoxo Raquel
