“We are most alive when we are in love”- John Updike
This quote sums up the love story between Yasmeen and her husband Omar. Having met each other on Minder (Muslim Tinder), she felt an instant connection when she first spoke to Omar over the phone. He lived in another state but wasted no time in coming to meet her the following weekend. They went on a date, went to a harvest festival and then Yasmeen took Omar to meet her parents. They immediately loved him!
Their relationship blossomed over the next couple of months. On Omar’s fourth visit, he brought his family to meet Yasmeen and her family. Surprisingly, both families sat down the couple and asked them if they wanted to get engaged. Even though everything seemed to be happening so fast, it felt right and they both agreed to getting married. Omar proposed on a boat a few weeks later.
They decided on tying the knot in Jamaica because they had travelled to the island once and fell in love with it. Additionally, the two did not want a wedding that was the same as the ones back home that were held at the same venues, so a destination wedding was their preferred choice.
Yasmeen and Omar are best friends and enjoy doing everything together. Yasmeen loves that her husband is dedicated, intelligent and makes her feel safe. He understands her without her having to explain herself. Laughter is the best medicine and Yasmeen says her relationship with Omar is filled with countless inside jokes. They are extremely passionate about love and what they believe in and are trying to figure out how to continually bring out the best in each other.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
May the love and happiness you feel today shine through the years.
