Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.

On the surface, Karine and Anthony Hray’s love story is a simple one. They met through friends, and Anthony proposed two years later while the pair were cutting down their Christmas tree. Just nine months later, the pair were saying “we do” at their wedding.

The reception, on the other hand, was anything but straightforward.

Karine says that the reception, and especially spending time with friends and family, was her favorite part of the day. She and Anthony hired a belly dancer to entertain guests with a performance, accompanied by Arabic music. And from the looks of their photos, the party only got crazier from there. Don’t believe us? Scroll through the photos above!
