This stunning black tie wedding comes to us from Joseph Kohn of IQPhoto Studio, based in San Francisco, CA! Here’s Joseph to tell us moe:

It happened in Las Vegas and now it’s not staying in Las Vegas. Negeen was there on a girls’ weekend, up from Los Angeles, and Paul was on holiday from Australia. So they were both in Las Vegas but how did they meet? Negeen approached Paul inside a Las Vegas nightclub. He couldn’t believe his eyes when he turned to see her standing there. That was it!

See more after the cut!


Continents apart, Negeen and Paul spent three years in a long distance relationship while she stayed in California to finish law school. Paul was back at his home base in Melbourne. When Negeen finished her degree, Paul was transferred from Melbourne to Singapore. Negeen took the leap and moved to Singapore. They were able to travel around Southeast Asia for two years.

On a gorgeous afternoon in their bungalow on the water in the Maldives (the clearest crystal water in the world according to Negeen), Paul asked Negeen to marry him. Their fairy tale wedding was enjoyed by friend and family from all over the world. They are living happily ever after in Sydney.

Congratulations Negeen & Paul and thank you, Joseph, for sharing! For more information about IQPhoto Studio, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.
