CONGRATULATIONS JOHN & HELENE HABIB

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF MARRIAGE!
On the occasion of their 50th Wedding Anniversary and while surrounded by more than 200 of their closest friends and family, John and Helen Habib officially renewed their wedding vows on Sunday, November 27 at St. Sharbel Maronite Catholic Church in Warren, Michigan USA. Four priests officiated the ceremony with many of the original bridal party standing nearby, including the couple's six children and their families. Guests and well-wishers arrived from throughout the US & Canada and dined on a veritable feast of Lebanese cuisine prepared by internationally renown chef Tony Abunassar, only to be complimented by a champagne fountain and homemade traditional Tripolitan pastries and sweets. A video slide presentation was shown depicting the past half century of life's treasures bestowed upon The Habib's, followed by toasts, speeches and poems from the Habib children. Following the newly-re-wed's official bridal dance, the party goers kicked up their heels on the dance floor at what was truly a joyous occasion. We would like to extend our best wishes to John, Helen & their family for another 50 golden years together!
