Aneesa and Ibrahim were classmates on their third year in college. Despite their differing personalities, the two easily became friends. Later on, the two's friendship evolved into romance.
On Aneesa and Ibrahim's third year as a couple, Aneesa was hired for work overseas. Because of the challenges that a long-distance relationship came with, Ibrahim determinedly applied for a job abroad so he can follow Aneesa.
After six years of being together, the two finally decided to tie the knot. And while there was no formal proposal from the groom, the couple just felt in their hearts that they were meant for each other. "There's no defining moment where he asked me to marry him. We were always talking about our future home and family, like it was a sure thing. I have always known it was him. I'm sure he felt the same," Aneesa says.
Aneesa and Ibrahim's wedding was a cheerful celebration, as their chosen indoor space was decorated with lush arrangements reminiscent of a rustic garden. Various details in pink, gray, and brown made for a warm and inviting affair.
To personalize their wedding, Aneesa did a handful of DIY projects. Among these were the boutonnieres, ceremony accessories, buntings, menu cards, and their wishing tree. The bride also learned a new craft, wood burning, just so she could make wooden signs for their wedding day.
From the groom's end, he took the reins in picking a meaningful song for their first dance. The couple swayed to Maher Zain's For the Rest of My Life, a song that perfectly represented how the groom felt about his bride.
While the couple was hands-on with their wedding, the bride wishes that they entrusted tasks to different people. Aneesa shares, "I wish I never trusted something to just one person. I should have endorsed things to many persons whom I can count on, so that when one forgets, another remembers." She adds, "Be your own researcher. There are loads of inspirations in the World Wide Web. Explore as much as you can."
