Tasneem & Ali | Nikkah & Reception at Opal Event Hall | Atlanta Ismaili Indian Wedding Photography

Indian Wedding Muslim Wedding Wedding

Day 2 of Tasneem & Ali’s wedding took place at a variety of locations, from the Nikkah at Ismaili HQ in Decatur to the Westin Perimeter Atlanta for getting ready and finally the evening reception at Opal Event Hall. The day began at home with Tasneem’s hair and makeup by Samantha Gunn – Gunn Glamour.

More photos in the backyard because why not? :)

Ali came to pick her up and we did a quick first look before heading to Ismaili HQ Jamatkhana in Decatur.

Somehow we were early for Nikkah, which I don’t think has EVER happened to me before! So we took the opportunity to do some pre-Nikkah portraits at the Jamatkhana in the middle of the afternoon :)

Then it was time for Nikkah to get officially married!!!

We did the traditional Khoba Kobi ceremony following Nikkah back at Ali’s home before taking another portrait break before the evening reception. Always a fun event to see the bride and groom play some wedding games!

Finally, a short break before we reconvened at the Westin Perimeter Atlanta for reception preparations with Tasneem and Ali.

The reception took place at Opal Event Hall with decor by Events InStyle by Beenish who made the place look amazing before the evening’s dance party began! These families know how to party for sure!!


Such an amazing weekend for an amazing couple! Thanks for having us, Tasneem and Ali!
