When a member of the bridal community gets married, it’s a very big deal! For years lovely Senada, a gifted hairstylist and beautiful person both inside and out, has made many of our brides look gorgeous and feel relaxed and calm. So, when we were able to do the same for Senada on her wedding day, we were thrilled and honored.
Growing up in Montenegro, Senada and Agron’s families were close so it was only natural that the two became friends. It wasn’t until they both moved to the US that their friendship became something much more. From Senada:
“Our parents, who both owned restaurants back home and were very good friends. We were neighbors and we even went to the same school. When we moved to the US, we kept in touch.” But before long, their friendship grew into love, thanks to their mutual connection to weddings!
“For the past 15 years, my husband has worked for the city of New York (Mayor’s Office & NYC MEDIA), but his side job is working with AlbaPro, doing video production. Since I do many of the brides in the Albanian community and most of them use AlbaPro for their beautiful work, we ended up at many of the weddings together. After our work was done at the weddings, we’d stay and talk, which, since we both enjoyed it so much, evolved into seeing each other.”
Clearly, they were a couple destined for each other! And, as they discovered, you can’t run away from destiny! From Senada:
“When on my 35th birthday, Agron proposed in front of my friends and family, it was a big, wonderful surprise. It was so emotional! I felt as if life with my best friend finally started.”
Both being very creative people, in lieu of a big wedding, the two decided to travel to Las Vegas for an artistic wedding photo shoot. Enlisting the help of her two sisters and lovely daughter, Diana, Senada set about planning an unforgettable experience for two!
Since no wedding photo is complete without a glowing bride wearing a gorgeous gown and fabulous accessories, Senada went shopping:
“I knew I wanted a mermaid gown with clean, simple design, and ended up with two! The first was by Matthew Christopher, and the second, which I wore in the casino shots, was custom made. Of course when you have a simple dress, you have to add some fabulous bling to it. Of course I went to Bridal Styles for my accessories, a beautiful statement necklace that completed my look, and a brooch could be worn in my hair as a comb.”
Six months later, after saying “I do” at City Hall and in a religious ceremony, Senada and Agron jetted out west.
“We took pictures in The National Park in the desert and also on the Red Rock Canyon. Because of the heat, we had to take pictures after sunset. It was an amazing experience. After we were finished with the pictures outside, we went to the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. We changed our outfits and took pictures inside a casino.
It was so much fun working with the people I love most, and having my husband there with me made everything so special. Everyone worked so hard to make the trip incredible. My friend, Lumi worked her magic as a make-up artist, and, of course, AlbaPro did a wonderful job. Traveling around and getting to experience new places was such a fantastic experience!”
Now back in New York as husband and wife, Senada and Agron have this advice for those soon to be wed:
“My advice to all of upcoming brides is to make sure you choose the right person to spend forever with. Having someone who you can trust , love and respect is the best gift. Finding your best friend in your soul mate is also something that you wouldn’t trade for the world.
Thank you so much for sharing your story and breathtaking photos with us, Senada. We’re so happy for you both, and wish you the very best!
