Oh my goodness let me tell ya about Arin and Nina! They were my kind of people. Think of the kindest person you know and double it to create these two haha. They are a couple full of life and was a joy to work with during their Cosima wedding!
How their story began was on the classic modern century dating app of…Bumble! Nina swiped to Arin where she recognized one of his photos from similar life experience she had. It was Arin petting an elephant in Thailand. Nina had been to Thailand also and went to the same exact elephant conservatory! So immediately they had something to bond over and the rest was history.
Fast forward to their wedding where we start with Nina getting ready in the most unique hotel in Baltimore city. Entering the room, ready to go, were flower rings for the bridesmaids that were handmade by Nina with blooms from Baltimore’s farmers market. Then a little package arrives for Nina from Arin along with a card. In the package is Nina’s favorite perfume that has stopped being made. Then in the card Arin asks Nina to pull out her phone and wait for a text from him. *Ping* it arrives and there is an audio file that Arin asks Nina to play. It’s a song that Arin wrote and sang for Nina. Sharing his experience of their love and new journey together <3
For the ceremony they wanted to ensure their families were represented. Arin and his dad handmade the chuppah together incorporating their jewish traditions. Then during the ceremony Arin & Nina asked their mom’s to contribute dirt from their own gardens creating a unity plant signifying joining of families. After the ceremony they signed the Ketubah with their parents and their grandparents, solidifying their union. All under the magical looks this Cosima wedding made.
The night continued on with a live band that was so jumpin’ with chinese lanterns lining the ceilings. Ending the night with some Jasmine Tea for dessert.
