Shahileen & Omar – Calgary Muslim Wedding |

This past summer I traveled down to Calgary for Shahileen & Omar’s wedding!  I was friends with Omar when we were in University, but when Shahileen inquired with me for their wedding none of us had put the pieces together that we knew each other!  When they booked I was so thrilled to learn that we would be able to catch up!  We had such a fun group of people (we definitely never cut class together….) and it’s been so cool to see where we all have landed years later.  I ended up catching up with everyone at Rashad & Kim’s wedding in the spring as well!

Shai & Omar had their Muslim ceremony at the Coast Hotel in Calgary and then immediately went into their reception which was awesome for all of the guests.  We did their photos in downtown Calgary prior to the ceremony.  Big thanks to my second shooter Ali, and videographer Harrison with Glass Stone Cinema for making the day extra fun!  It’s quite possible I ended up staying at dancing at this one…..and I might have made it to the after party…….  To say this was a fun wedding would be a major understatement!  Omar is one of the most outgoing people I’ve ever met, and spent most of his wedding going around to everyone and making sure that THEY were having a good time!  Shai is so sweet, and the perfect match for boisterous Omar.  I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her.  Congratulations to the newlyweds!
