Three Cultures, One Unforgettable Love Story | Hend & Nohman’s Wedding

Afghan and Egyptian wedding at The Athletic Club in St. Paul MN

Hend and Nohman are a beautiful couple with a beautiful love story. I really enjoyed capturing the big and little moments of their wedding day. Both are first generation Americans who were raised in traditional families and in two different cultures. Hend is Egyptian, Nohman is Afghan, and for both, the expectation was to marry someone of their same culture. Initially, they struggled to convince their families that their love was meant to transpire into marriage, despite their cultural differences. In the end, the families happily united to celebrate the joyous occasion. As the day full of laughter, good food, and nonstop dancing was coming to a close (literally as the sun came up), Hend remembers looking around the room and feeling so lucky that so many people she loved, from all different parts of her life had come together in one place for her and Nohman’s wedding day. The day was truly a celebration of love and a seamless interweaving of three different cultures. It was beautiful.

The reception at the St. Paul Athletic Club, felt like the set of a classic 50s movie, glamorous and timeless. The Athletic Club was a perfect venue to host the celebration of Hend and Nohman’s love for one another. Guests could see that the couple was overwhelmed with admiration for each other, and genuinely found joy in one another’s presence. While I was photographing, they could barely hear my directions because they were making each other laugh so hard! They found bliss in every moment. From posing in Minneapolis alleyways to the grand ballroom of the St. Paul Athletic Club, they made each second special and never stressful. This made the day feel like a holiday, celebrating the couple’s commitment, culture, and the people they care about the most. If only it could happen once a year.
