I was 16 years old when I first met Masheed. He was only a kid, 11 years old, a classmate of my sister’s who grew to be one of my brother’s very best friends. As the years passed, he became a fixture at our family dinner table, until eventually, I began calling him my second brother. We watched him bounce through life, with a purpose, as only Masheed can do; happy, energized, motivated and sweet. A total force to be reckoned with. Unmatched. Until one fateful day in an undergrad class at Pitt, he locked eyes with Katie, an equally incredible, enthusiastic, effusive soul. And the rest, as they say, was history. It’s an amazing thing when you see two people come together and it’s just so right. As the years passed, Katie and Masheed navigated from college to adult life with the same attitude of excitement, surviving several moves and jobs, and even life in Manhattan, all by each other’s side. This October, we gathered for their beautiful destination wedding in the Pocono Mountains at the perfectly rustic and cozy Tall Timber Barn. High in the mountains and shrouded with autumn fog, we came together in a whirlwind of joy to witness and celebrate this power couple as they pledged their love, all while dodging a few raindrops. It was intimate. It was comfortable. It was perfect. Just like these two. To Katie + Masheed – what a weekend! I’m so happy to have been a part of it all – your sweet love story surely left it’s mark on the Poconos 😉 Love you both and can’t wait for your new adventures in the BAY!
I love this sweet family!
Best. Entrance. Ever.
