You might remember Zayna and Rani from the super sweet Chicago engagement session…well their wedding was nothing short of super sweet either! Zayna and Rani tied the knot on the 27th of September at the St. George Church of Troy and let me tell you, it was one heck of a celebration! I started the day off at Zayna’s parents house and was greeted with open arms when I arrived. I got to have some awesome Turkish coffee…twice and a bunch of other yumtastic food before photographing the bride getting ready. I love the getting ready process and it was great to have all of the ladies surrounding Zayna while she was getting ready. The bridesmaids had matching tops with nicknames on the back which was of course super cute. Everything about the day was so much fun…it really was the epitome of a celebration as every part of the day, there was dancing and singing by all that were around. The band was truly stellar and did nothing but add to the energy and atmosphere of the celebration! I honestly find it hard to explain…like love, it’s one of those things you have to experience to fully understand. I felt so blessed to have been the one to document their day and party my socks of with the rest of the 500 people that were there. This was truly a day to remember and while remain close to my heart for some time to come. ENJOY!!!

It’s the traditional ladies in the jacuzzi shot…? Gina, Ameera, Christina, Olivia, Natalie, Zayna, and Cara.
Say it with me now…”BLING!!!”
What to wear?
Zayna even looks smokin’ chatting on the phone.
These images speak for themselves!

The bridal party taking a nice stroll downtown Birmingham.
My favorite!!! I have a 12×18 of this on metallic paper and it rocks, but needs to be bigger. Can we say 20×30?!? Seriously you should see the impact of this print as a 20×30 printed on metallic paper mounted on 1 1/2″ gator foam…TRULY AW INSPIRING!!!
Nothing can come between Zayna and Rani…well almost nothing…
Boy will be boys. How may bugs can you catch in your mouth?
Some people were taking their bear for a walk and it stopped to say hello to Rani, or maybe just to see if he smelled delicious.
The bouquets were yummy!
When you put these two together…
You get this!
The entrance…kind of like a red carpet event…does that mean I am now paparazzi?
Hmmmm…I wonder if anyone is having a good time?
Zayna can dance and she is smokin’ when she does!
You can always count on a few good laughs during speech’s.
I think this cake belongs in a magazine.
I heard it was delicious!
Father and daughter making good use of the dance floor.
The newlyweds dance was so much fun. The closest thing it reminded me of was the dancing from Cindarella and Sleeping Beauty…which I am happy now is out of the vault.
Tijlai with Zayna’s moms…
Rani holding while Zayna stomps out the flames.
The place was filled with beautiful people having the time of their lives…I know I was!
Hotties Natalie and Cara gettin’ down!
Yes, I posted 4 pics of this couple, but they were tearing it up and were so incredibly HOTT doing so. Dear Crazy HOTT couple, You rock! Love, Dustin
When Zayna dances, you just have to stop and watch…SEE!
Who doesn’t love some classic Michael Jackson?
Not sure about the robot?.
Christina, you didn’t jump quite high enough.
The groom and his best man havin’ a laugh…
I guess there was too much energy for some…
The band was pumping out energy all night long….ALL NIGHT!
Sometimes, pizza just tastes really good.
Zayna’s parents front and center keepin’ the party going.
They passed on the duties to the guests of honor.
Even Rani can’t believe the way his wife can move.
Now tell me they don’t look happy.
Here we are at the end…all smiles!
