Niqah

Ali asked 3 years ago

Salam aleykum. I have recently met a girl and we are considering getting engaged. The problem is that she wants a Sunni imam to do the niqah (she is Sunni) and my parents and I want a Shia imam (I am Shia). We do not know what to do. My question: does it matter if it is a Sunni or Shia imam that does the niqah or is it not important what imam does the niqah?
