Afaf & Joseph met in the Middle East while Joseph was visiting on vacation, and quickly knew they had found their soulmates. During the long distance engagement, the bride was English teaching in Syria while the wedding was planned in Portland by the groom and Bridal Bliss coordinator, ELIZABETH. Afaf made it into town just a few short weeks before the event and was in for the celebration of a lifetime! The ceremony was held at ST. GEORGE ORTHODOX CHURCH and the beautiful reception took place in THE SENTINEL HOTEL’S Heritage Ballroom. This beautiful event was featured by OREGON BRIDE MAGAZINE.
