Nabeela and Hakeem’s vibrant celebration filled Donald E. Stephens Convention Center with gorgeous fashion and colorful decor. All photos by Maha Studios.
The couple’s traditional Indian wedding included a Henna ceremony, a Nikah, and a lavish reception that showcased gorgeous floral and decor work by Amer Design Studios. Nabeela selected a pastel theme so that her dress would truly pop against the gentle back-splash. When asked about their favorite memories from their celebration, the couple agreed that one of the stand out moments was the veil lifting following the Nikah. “Getting our first look at each other as husband and wife was very special and sentimental,” they explained. Another cherished detail from their wedding was the fact that both Nabeela and Hakeem’s grandmothers were present for the wedding and were there to carry out all of the traditional customs during the celebration.
