Robin and Shujah met and fell in love in medical school, but their different faiths kept them from staying together. After some time apart, the two realized they couldn’t be without one another. To embrace Robin’s Jewish heritage and Shujah’s Muslim descent, the couple celebrated their nuptials with a traditional Muslim ceremony as well as a Jewish ceremony. We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of their wedding thanks to The Collection.
