Elie Saab Jr, the eldest son of the famous Lebanese designer Elie Saab, married Christina Mourad. How did the couple meet? through Junior’s brother, Celio Saab, in a gathering at their house. 

At his home on June 19, 2018, Saab Jr proposed to Mourad. The wedding with more than a thousand guests took place yesterday in Bkerke. The bride who of course was dressed by her father in law looked dazzling. The wedding reception took place at the exclusive Faqra Club. During the party, Nancy Ajram, Elissa, Assi Hellani, Michel Fadel, DJ Jamie Jomes, Djette, and DJ Caline entertained the guests. Adding to the festivities, a round of fireworks was set off at midnight.

The guest list included friends and VIP guests of the Saab family including Chantal Thomass, Elissa, Dita Von Teese, Toni Garrn, Sara Sampaio, Alina Baikova, Karolina Kurkova, Lily Donaldson, and Bianca Brandolini. On Thursday, July 18, everyone came together for the pre-wedding cocktail in the town of Faqra, in the mountains of Lebanon, at Plateau Bakich. The Oriental-themed party saw guests celebrating through traditional dances. For the wedding, the bride-to-be Kika Mourad was dressed in a stunning ensemble plucked from Elie Saab’s Fall-Winter 2019 couture collection which was inspired by the East, while her makeup was done by Lebanese celebrity makeup-artist Bassam Fattouh. The Blue Sunset Party — said to go on from sunset to sunrise — will take place at the Saab Residence in Faqra on July 20.

The couple plans to travel to the Mediterranean, and go Ibiza, Capri, the Alpes and Bodrum for their honeymoon.
