This is the wedding of Deena and Omar,

 which took place at Le Manoir Rouville-Campbell in Quebec.

Deena say:  

Often times, when a women wears hijab, she chooses to have a segregated wedding (men and women in different halls) in order to have the freedom to wear what ever dress she wishes. 

Yet when a wedding is not segregated, Arab hijabi brides generally wear a white wedding dress with a matching head veil.  But truthfully, I never really liked the look

I always felt that being fully covered in white makes the bride look ghostly or like an egg.  I was determined to find another solution. I therefore decided on a champagne colored dress instead of white.

    Sippingchai, Sakina : SHE SAY: One day, i stumbled into a jewelry artist’s kiosque where she displayed a variety of hand made necklaces made of malleable wire and crystals. It then hit me; perhaps I could design a headpiece made of the same materials as her jewelry. Since my dress was champagne, I decided on a light golden wire, with orange, orange-red, champagne and colorless Swarovski crystals. Since this was the jeweler’s first headpiece design, it truly was a joint effort. My vision was to have vines surrounding my head holding flowers of different colors and sizes. I did not want the piece to be glued to my head, therefore, I asked that she incorporate some volume by lifting the wines and cascade them towards the right. The wines were positioned and tied together on a bed of golden loops, and the entire piece was lined with champagne colored organza.
