Baby, it was always you

Basel and Zeena knew each other “since forever “. But on one summer night in Lebanon and one single rose later, the two became inseparable.

When i asked Zeena about her wedding theme, she just smiled and said “Fun” and it was exactly that ! Their first dance was like something from the movies,  the dance floor was full all night long and everyone had a great time especially the newly weds!

6 months before her wedding day, the bride contacted me about making a custom headpiece, she was hesitant at first to work with me because my designs were more floral and boho while she was looking for a statement piece to match her pretty ball gown. I thank Zeena everyday for pushing me out of my comfort zone. Together, we created one of the most beautiful pieces ever and on that special day, i had a very happy bride

“I really think the headpiece made such a big statement on the overall look, i’m so glad i made it with you” …. Zeena, i feel the same way

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
