Blissful Beachside Wedding at St. Regis Punta Mita
Amirah Kassem, long-time family friend, and owner of New York's Flour Shop held a four-day wedding 'fiesta' at the St. Regis Punta Mita. Filled with perennial color and memories to last a lifetime, perhaps no moment during the celebratory weekend felt as monumental as watching Amirah glide down the aisle.
Amirah told Harper's Bazaar, "Since the day I met her about 10 years ago, I fell in love with not just [Armine's] personality, style and talent– but also her process. As a bride you have to make lots of decisions, but RMINE was a no-brainer for me."
Also a 'no-brainer' for us, it was an immense honor to design multiple garments utilized throughout the celebration. Among them, Amirah's wedding gown and veil, as well as the bridesmaids' gowns. Texture and movement were focuses within the design, which allowed each sparkling personality to shine without overwhelming the event.
"I haven’t seen many bridesmaids dresses I liked, but then I decided they don’t need matching 'bridesmaids' dresses—they can wear evening gowns!" Amirah continued to Harper's Bazaar, "RMINE made the dream come true and I chose a floral lace in different colors and had Armine meet the girls and design a bodice to suit to each girl's liking. Their gowns ended up being one of my favorite details of the wedding."
Amirah met Ross at the end of the aisle at beach's edge, overlooking the ocean. Her hair swept in the breeze effortlessly, and she looked calm and natural at the altar. After exchanging "I Do's," Amirah returned the crowd's praise with a signature mouth-wide smile, and the festivities began! The gown moved beautifully with her, as did each ensemble we had the pleasure of designing.
