MAARIA + ALI | WEDDING DAY PREVIEWS | THE WESTIN, COLUMBUS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY


Maaria is that busy Bride, she is always working and it makes sense. She is a designer for Abercrombie & Fitch. So, when we finally met her it was at her Henna/Rehearsal Dinner Party the day before her wedding. Man was she stunning. The pre-wedding was colorful and bright which is everything her parents could have dreamed of and her wedding was elegant and everything she could have dreamed of. The Westin is STUNNING! 

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT HER DRESS! 

Being that Maaria was a designer, I later found out she and a few of her bridesmaids actually customized her wedding dress. They were literally fixing it all the way until she walked out the door. HOW COOL! She wanted to go a different way then just a white wedding dress so it was silver. It even had touches of her Indian roots, which I'm sure her mother loved, and the head scarf was to DIE FOR! I was even in love with her bridesmaids outfits. They were another mix with traditions and I love personal touches, her bridesmaids looks fantastic! 

Here comes the fun part! Her wedding was a mashup of a few traditions and cultures. Being that Ali is Palestinian, Maaria is Indian, and they are both American, you could see touches of each in the entire day. It was a perfect melding and balance of them all. Plus, it was pretty epic to be apart of. There were swords, dancing, bright colors, and tons of guests joining in! It's truly something to see and be apart of! I mean how many people can say they've been to a Palestinian and Indian wedding in one??? Thank you to both sides of the family for making us feel so welcomed! 


 
The first time Ali and I met he told me he was going to marry me one day!

HENNA NIGHT

We were able to spend the evening with this lovely couple the night before their wedding celebration. It was so colorful and full of dancing. We simply had a blast! The food was also AMAZING, shout out to Tadka Indian Restaurant, they were even catering the wedding.
