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!

Sue & Sunny’s Wedding Day 1 | Atlanta Guyanese Hindu Indian Wedding
Another wedding from the hot Summer in Atlanta which takes me back to warmer days as I sit here writing this blog post in the cold New York Winter =). Sue and Sunny had a Hindu wedding but this one was a little unique for myself personally because instead of a familiar Indian or Pakistani wedding this was a Guyanese wedding. Most of the Hindu wedding ceremonies were very similar but as is the case with most Indian weddings I photograph their are always a few unique ceremonies and traditions that keep every single wedding fresh and exciting! This blog post is just the first day's Hindu wedding ceremonies, and the following day was a giant rece ...
