Saba & Asfend | Indian Wedding in Augusta & Hilton Atlanta Downtown

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

Come along for the blog of Saba & Asfend’s muslim Indian wedding in Augusta and Atlanta, Georgia! Day 1 and 2 took place in Augusta for the Mehndi night and Nikkah, while the third day Valima took place back in Atlanta at the Hilton Downtown Atlanta. Tons of fun and celebration were assisted by Events InStyle by Beenish for the decor and DJ Ameet for the music!

Mehndi Night at Doubletree Augusta

Mehndi night’s celebration was a combination of some ceremonies as well as dancing and celebrating with the bride and groom to-be. We saw a lot of old friends and past brides in attendance as part of the “Augusta crew” here to celebrate with Saba and Asfend for their mehndi night.

Nikkah in Augusta

Nikkah was the following day in Augusta at the mosque, a more private event with the Augusta community as well as Saba and Asfend’s families.

Shaadi in Atlanta at the Hilton Downtown

Another day, another event! Back to Atlanta we go for the Shaadi celebration at the Hilton Downtown Atlanta. It’s great to be back to Atlanta and the celebration was a beautiful regal event for an Indian Wedding at the Hilton Downtown Atlanta.

Previsualization in Wedding Photography [Atlanta Wedding Photographer]
This post is part of a series on wedding photography where we will walk through an overview of our entire wedding process. Do you Previsualize? I’ve raced two Ironman triathlons, requiring hours and hours of training in the pool, on the bike, and on the street. During those hour long swims or six hour long bike rides I would visualize the race itself in my mind: “On race day, how will I be feeling if I know I just swam 2.4 miles and I’m halfway through this bike ride with a full marathon ahead of me?” This would help put me in a frame of reference to either pace myself better or fuel better – and I have to admit I think it really helped me d ...
