A Cultural Mosaic What if ... Worldly traditions mixed in a festive melting pot on your Wedding day? copy by Jennifer Tzeses Bride & Groom: Nadine and Rabih Allaf Location: Hotel Arts Barcelona PhotoGraPher: Adrian Bonet (adrianbonetphotography.com) 62 w e d d i n g s b y t h e r i t z - c a r lt o n Sometimes, love appears in unexpected ways. For Nadine and Rabih Allaf, it came as a blessing in disguise. On Halloween night, 2010, Nadine and Rabih — both dressed to the nines in elaborate costumes — bumped into each other on the balcony at a party in Dubai. Rabih said hello, and the rest is history. Barcelona was a natural choice for the couple’s wedding locale. “It’s both our favorite European city and also easily accessible from all over the world,” says Nadine. Hotel Arts Barcelona, nestled right on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea, was the idyllic setting for the outdoor wedding the couple had always imagined. They fell in love with the enchanting garden and Frank Gehry’s iconic whale statue. On June 22, 2012, on a grassy hill shrouded by olive trees and the panoramic vistas of the Mediterranean, 120 guests from around the world gathered to watch the couple become husband and wife. “Our wedding day truly captured the essence of our personalities and who we are as people,” says Nadine. The day was just that: a perfect reflection of the couple themselves. http://www.adrianbonetphotography.com
