Haver/Musallam Wedding April 16, 2011

Bethany Haver and Shafiq (Chuck) Musallam were married April 16th, 2011 at the beautiful Oak Arbor Church in Rochester, MI. This church features beautiful floor to ceiling windows framed with oak that set the perfect atmosphere as Bethany walked down the aisle to live acoustic guitar played by her extremely talented cousin. The ceremony was beautiful and the bride looked absolutely gorgeous!

The party then moved over to Cherry Creek Golf Club in Shelby Township where Bethany’s vision of Tiffany’s came to life through the beautiful design and d├ęcor created by her Aunt Jennifer. Bethany chose Tiffany blue with accents of chocolate

brown and red to really make her centerpieces of roses, pink hydrangeas, and carnations pop.

Alternating tables featured unique vases of white feathers and curly willow branches accented with crystals and tea light candles for a beautiful glow. This reception was truly the picture of elegance.

The reception opened with a special live performance of “At Last” sung by Bethany’s cousin. I was thrilled to be working with Mid-Michigan DJ’s again and the dance floor was packed from the start of the night. The bride and groom and their guests danced to traditional Arabic music

and everyone loved it! There was even a traditional chair dance where Bethany was carried around the dance floor while seated in a chair. It was such a unique experience to witness these two families come together and embrace one another’s culture.

Bethany and Chuck were so wonderful to work with and I wish them every happiness in their life together.

  1. Glad to know about this event planning. Extremely beautiful cake! My friend organized a wedding function for her sister at one of elegant wedding venues last month. All her friends and family members praised the arrangements.
