This beautiful couple met through a mutual friend in Louisiana where Rami was in his residency and Rossa in doctoral study. They hit it off and visited a Syrian festival in Houston together. Their love was providentially brought together and they continued their engagement even while many states away as Rami moved here to Phoenix and Rossa did her residency in Nebraska. Their wedding day came, and what a day it was! From Rami getting ready at his house in Glendale, Rossa getting ready at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale, their ceremony being held at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church, more pictures and video done back at the Hyatt, and their reception at Gainey Ranch Golf Club, it was a very full day for this great couple. It was also the first day of the Monsoon season in Arizona, and the first big dust wall, also known as a Haboob, came through just before their reception at Gainey Ranch Golf Club. Rossa braved a good bit of wind in order for us to get some great photos and video of the two of them near sunset out on the golf course at Gainey. Oh, my, do their family and friends know how to party! From more traditional dances from Syria, dabke, where all the family and friends danced as a group, to American party anthems: they danced all night long! They even finished the evening with a very talented friend who brought his keyboard/synth and played Syrian-style songs to which many guests danced and sang. They are definitely worth celebrating!
