Non Traditional Muslim Wedding at Hotel Granduca – Khalisa & Charles

These two lovebirds had a non-traditional Muslim ceremony at Hotel Granduca in Houston. Khalisa is from Malaysia and Charles is from the United States. This is one of two weddings that they’ve planned for this year; the next one will be in Malaysia later this year.

Khalisa and Charles met while Khalisa was in her second year of college in Austin, Texas. She was going to St Edwards University at the time and he was at Austin Community College. They had a bunch of mutual friends, which is how they connected. Within a week of hanging out, they immediately hit it off. Charles has been her support and best friend from that day on. Eventually, after a year Khalisa’s mother (who lives in Malaysia) got him a ticket to visit the family in Malaysia and everyone got along very well.
