“My entire immediate family lives in Chicago,” Nevene explained when asked why the couple decided to tie the knot in the Windy City. “BJ has aunts and uncles in Chicago, but his family flew in from Palestine for our wedding celebration.”
The couple got married just one month after finding out that BJ’s medical residency would move them to Louisville, Kentucky. “Our wedding symbolized the end of our long distance relationship and the beginning of BJ’s career, which he’s been working towards so diligently,” Nevene said. “Both of these things made our wedding day as special as it was.”
Nevene and BJ got married a week before their Pazzo’s celebration in a private ceremony at a mosque, in the presence of their closest relatives. The couple then celebrated their nuptials with extended family and friends at a Pazzo’s reception that lasted long into the night. The affair incorporated gold details, large floral arrangements, and a stunning black and white dance floor.
