Ruby and Hassan first met in the Summer of 2014 while Ruby traveled to Morocco with a group of educators. Hassan was one of the greeters that showed the group around and really provided the group with a first hand experience of Morocco. It was over dinner and mint tea where a connection really began. Once Ruby left and came back to America, the two stayed in touch and continued their relationship long distance. One year later, Ruby went back to Morocco to teach at the Ifrane school with Hassan and to experience life with him. In May of 2016, with their parents present, they got engaged. They both moved back to America where they got married in a small backyard ceremony. But, this August is when they will have both sides of the family, and friends, come from different places of the world to meet for a celebration of their marriage! I can’t wait to be a part of the big day, experience all the festivities, and watch Ruby and Hassan feel all the love from their family and friends.
