Bridal designer Sabrina Dahan, who previewed her Paris-inspired debut collection at bridal fashion week this season, headed to the "City of Love" for her engagement session with fiancé Aaron Eshaghian. The duo, who met seven years ago through a mutual friend in Paris, France, while Aaron was studying abroad for the summer and Sabrina was in town for a fashion internship, are planning an August wedding. "The most memorable part of our first meeting is that it was in Paris, the 'City of Love' and to this day, 'We'll always have Paris,'" shares Sabrina, mentioning the famous line from Casablanca.
Since the couple met in the romantic city and travel there nearly every summer to visit family and friends, Paris also became the focal point of Aaron's proposal. Though they were unable to take their annual trip since Sabrina was in the beginning stages of launching her bridal collection, Aaron brought Paris to his beloved. "There was French music playing in the background and in front of me was a path of rose petals and candles leading to the backyard," remembers Sabrina of the proposal site. "Outside was a picnic for two in front of a replica of the Eiffel Tower! In that moment, we were able to relive that memorable summer when we first met."
When choosing a location for their engagement photo session, "it only seemed fitting to go back to Paris, where we fell in love," notes the bride-to-be. Most of their engagement photos were taken in front of the Eiffel Tower and captured the love of the playful couple. When asked what her favorite moment of the e-session was, Sabrina's answer was simple: "The candid moment taken of Aaron kissing my forehead because I know that no matter what, he will always be by my side supporting me... The Eiffel Tower framing our personal love story just as it has since the beginning definitely made it a wow moment."
