Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

If you’ve been following along on the blog for the past couple of posts, I’ve been posting some pretty amazing photos. Well, that’s all thanks to a pretty amazing couple! The third event of Kanwal & Ali’s Atlanta Indian Wedding was the Nikkah and reception which took place on Saturday. After Ali picked up his bride in the morning we all headed to the Atlanta Ismaili Jamatkhana for the Nikkah before heading back downtown to the Atlanta Hyatt Regency for the reception. Many thanks to the amazing vendor team which pulled off this incredible wedding including Kiran & Bobby with XtraHotDJs, Beenish with Events InStyle by Beenish, and of course Imen Melli-Michaels – the Catering Manager/Wedding Specialist at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. Apologies in advance for the monstrous number of photos in this post and the last one from Kanwal & Ali’s Atlanta Ismaili wedding, their was just so much cool stuf to share that I had to post a lot! =) Here we go!
