Kashif Ali, a 21-year-old student from Raipur village in Sialkot, Pakistan and Maria Helena Abrams, a 41-year-old reiki master, driver and dog trainer from California, have tied the knot.
The couple met on the Instagram 10 months ego, fell in love and decided to get married. The wedding took place in a Sialkot hotel on Friday.
The ceremony was simple. It was a private affair, with only close relatives being invited.
After the wedding, Helena said she felt “very loved, and a little sleepy”. She added: “Kashif is wonderful. I love him. He makes me happy.”
“I don’t know whether we’ll live in Pakistan or America and it doesn’t matter as long as we’re together,” said Helena, who has embraced Islam.
