Meant To Be You

Curious how these two met? Jessica and Dorian were brought together through mutual friends, but their connection ran even deeper. With Jessica having a best friend who shares Dorian’s Lebanese background, they understood the tight-knit nature of the Lebanese community. This connection added an extra layer of meaning to their relationship, making it all the more special. Needless to say, they felt a pull to get to know one another only to discover something more…

It was in 2021 that Dorian chose the breathtaking island of Maui to ask Jessica to be his forever. Surrounded by the beauty of Maui, they experienced an incredible time together, creating memories that would shape their future. It was during this trip that the idea of a Maui destination wedding began to take shape!

Living in Houston, Texas, where mountains and scenic water beaches are scarce, Jessica and Dorian were drawn to the allure of Hawaii. Their love for hiking, exploring new cuisines, cooking, and spending quality time with their families made Maui an ideal choice for their dream wedding. They wanted to share this paradise with their loved ones, inviting them to join in on the joyous celebration!
