Zainab & Mike have one of the most unique & adorable love stories we have ever heard, and there wasn't a face without a smile as it was recalled on their wedding day! They both share a passion for traveling & exploring, and their paths crossed when they decided to attend medical school in St. Maarten. Can you imagine a more beautiful place to earn your degree than the Caribbean?!? Zainab, already on the island, received an email from a friend saying that Mike would be arriving to attend med school, just like her! She also mentioned that she had arranged for Zainab to pick Mike up from the airport to show him around, suggesting that they might hit it off ;) Mike sent a photo so that Zainab would recognize him and, after sharing it with friends, it was agreed that he was very cute! Zainab & Mike immediately had a connection, and it continued to grow as they explored the island and endured med school together.

Having met in paradise, we are certain that their wedding day in Milwaukee was equally as beautiful!! Zainab & Mike's ceremony included the perfect blend of Persian and Jewish traditions – our favorites being the honey they tasted off of each other's fingers for sweetness & happiness, and of course the breaking of the glass followed by a loud and heartfelt "Mazel Tov"!

Zainab & Mike, photographing your beautiful wedding was both a pleasure and a privilege!! We cannot thank you enough, and are so happy for the two of you! :)
