Bedford Village Inn Wedding

“Mabrook!”

St. Anthony Maronite Church Wedding  I  The bride and groom exit the church as guests cover them in flowers in Lawrence, MA.

In all of our years photographing weddings up and down the east coast, you can never tell where our couples will take us. Rola & Bassam’s Bedford Village Inn wedding is a perfect example of this. While we’ve worked in Bedford, NH several times, this one was just a little different…and I learned a little about my own heritage in the process!

A little known fact…I have Lebanese ancestry, which sadly I don’t know much about. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to work with Rola & Bassam, also Lebanese, who were gracious enough to share a thing or two about the K(h)oury family (apparently my grandmother’s family changed their name slightly upon emigrating from Lebanon … who knew?).

Another first: The couple’s ceremony at St. Anthony Maronite Church in Lawrence, MA, was entirely in Arabic. Since I was raised Catholic, I recognized a number of the traditions, but I understood little else. I DID learn that “Mabrook” means “Congratulations”, which is the perfect expression for this beautiful couple. :-)
