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!

With rain threatening us all day we weren't totally sure if this would be an outdoor wedding as planned or an indoor one. Luckily the weather held out on a rainy Atlanta Summer afternoon and April and Ben were able to have the wedding of their dreams. Just a few quick previews, full blog post in a little bit!

This weekend was a wedding double header weekend, which usually means 2 days of back-to-back weddings which isn't a big deal when you are used to doing 2, 3, 4 day Indian weddings... but this week we were back to back in two different cities! Thursday, Friday, and Saturday we were in Atlanta for Parihan and Nizar's Indian wedding at the Opal Event Hall and Crowne Plaza Ravinia Atlanta, and then it was off to Detroit on Sunday morning for Farah & Abul's Indian wedding in Detroit, Michigan at Imperial House that same Sunday afternoon! To add to the craziness I got back from our Summer vacation in Italy on Tuesday, and then flew down to Atl ...
