Yassine and Yasmina’s Rabat wedding took place in the beautiful garden of a villa. With lights and lanterns strung across, it was absolutely magical.
Yassine and Yasmina first met as children at Yasmina’s cousin’s house. Ten years ago, they reconnected at a wedding and the sparks flew between them. When they both moved abroad they kept in touch, and years later decided to get married.
Their wedding happened to fall on the same day as the World Cup final. In the hours leading up to the wedding, close friends and family could be found gathered around a TV and there was much celebrating over France’s victory.
The villa belonged to Yassines grandparents, who he was very close to, and the setting gave the wedding a more intimate feel and as guests arrived they were warmly greeted by Yassine and Yasmina’s family. Friends and family arrived from all over, including Canada and France. The wedding included many of the traditional Moroccan elements, with the traditional Amaria entrance, the Negafa and Yasmina wore three different takchitas. Yasmina’s Negafa was Mounia Benjelloun of Dar Benjelloun , and the dresses were a beautiful mix of modern and traditional. We would highly recommend Mounia Benjelloun as a Negafa and really enjoyed working with her. Guests needed no encouragement to dance and Othmane Mouline and his band made it impossible for them not to!
In lieu of a traditional sit-down meal, there was a variety of hors d’oeuvre like mini sliders and sushi. Later on there was a superb pasta bar and cheese table, all catered by Maison Dalis. This helped to create an atmosphere where guests mingled together and was perfect for an outdoor garden wedding.
One of our favorite things to capture during a wedding is the way that the bride and groom look at each other during the wedding, this wedding was no exception! Yassine was full of grins every time he saw Yasmina, and she absolutely glowed.
As the evening drew to a close, Yassine and Yasmina made their final entrance and did the cake cutting, followed by a bouquet toss.
Here are some of our favorite moments from their day…
