Saira & Yasir’s Engagement Ceremony | Family Home in Acworth, GA | Atlanta Pakistani Wedding Photographer
As I mentioned on the Friday preview for this blog post, this was an intimate engagement ceremony with only a handful of close family members… a stark contrast to the large 200+ person engagement ceremony we recently photographed at Zyka! I still really enjoyed spending my evening with both sides of the family at Saira’s house in Acworth, Georgia. This was a very special and intimate Pakistani engagement ceremony, a tad different from the other Pakistani engagement ceremonies that I have photographed that were more banquet style receptions.
As you can sort of see from this photo, we were literally in the family living room =). I know just how special it was for everyone in attendance, and I could definitely see the pressure and nervousness in Yasir’s eyes as Saira made her entrance. Not like the ENTIRE ROOM wasn’t looking at the two of them all night long or anything =)
We then proceeded to do some traditional Pakistani customs such as the ring ceremony, where Saira and Yasir both exchanged rings.
The remainder of the evening’s ceremonies involved just a few photos and finally the cake cutting at the end.
I did of course ask Saira to model some of her beautiful jewelry that she was wearing this evening.
Saira looked gorgeous and of course Yasir wasn’t so bad himself… even with the blushing from the constant stares of family members smiling approvingly.
Congratulations Saira and Yasir! Thank you to you and your families for allowing me to be there and document such a special day in everyone’s lives.
