A Classic All-White Wedding at The Thompson Combined Minimal Elegance and Timeless Style

Amanda Asad & Mohammed Al-Hamaydeh
September 3, 2022

Sparks flew for Amanda Asad and Mohammed Al-Hamaydeh right away—a coffee date after the encouragement of a mutual friend during their senior year at Texas A&M turned into a four-hour conversation. Seven months later, they were engaged. “We knew pretty quickly that we were serious about each other and wanted a life together,” Amanda says. They planned a small ceremony and reception on March 10, 2020, for their traditional Islamic wedding—known as a Nikkah or Katb al Kitab—and spent the next two years planning their dream party. On September 3, 2022, the couple celebrated with 250 guests at the Thompson Hotel, complete with dinner, dancing, and of course, sparks—this time, in the way of a jaw-dropping pyrotechnic display.

In sticking with the elegant, monochromatic aesthetic, the bride carried a bouquet of white roses designed by Something Pretty Floral. “The all-white concept came from [Amanda] wanting a timeless, classic wedding that will stand the test of time,” explains wedding planner Crystal Frasier.

In lieu of a traditional bridal party, Amanda asked her and Mohammed’s sisters to be part of the big day. “I asked them to wear different shades of nude and get ready with me the morning of the wedding,” she says. “It was absolutely amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”
