Nadia & Sohail’s Pithi | Occasions Event Center | Atlanta Indian Ismaili Wedding Photography

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

Some quick preview photos from Nadia & Sohail’s Pithi Ceremony at Occasions Event Center in Atlanta are finally up on the blog! I’m almsot done with the Nikkah photos as well so that will be posted soon but I couldn’t wait to share these photos! The Pithi ceremony is one of my absolute favorite parts of an Ismaili wedding, it is just so exciting from a photography and videography viewpoint =). Anyone who has ever attended an Indian wedding like this will know what I mean, and let’s just say that Sohail’s friends really know how to do the egg ceremony portion =).

Also, I looooved Nadia’s dress for the later part of the evening (after changing from the Pithi ceremony). The red color was amazing, really nice! Well of course Sohail was in a matching red one that perfectly complimented hers, what can I say they look good together =). Ok, back to finishing up these Nikkah photos! Look for many many more photos from the Pithi ceremony to come to the blog later!
