Two summers ago I had the privilege of photographing my first Lebanese wedding in Halifax Nova Scotia, thanks to a referral from my good friend Jeff Cooke at Cooked Photography.

Christine and Saiid were guests then, and when they got in touch to ask me to document their wedding this past summer, I was thrilled to get another chance to photograph Lebanese wedding traditions, particularly the laylieh – a pre-wedding engagement party where the wine flows and the dancing goes into the wee hours of the morning. And, in this case, where everyone jumps in the pool. Me + camera included.

It was a wet, late-night drive home, but it was well worth it.
