There are some weddings where even a pre-wedding event looks like the big day, and the #Nazara celebration was exactly the kind. Boy does it take a ton of planning and scrutiny to put up such a stellar show, but since the bride, Zahra, was thoroughly invested in it, it turned out to be a smashing success! For the Pithi and Sangeet at the Alnoor Banquet Hall, a royal blue and teal color scheme dictated the decor. Events InStyle perfected the look with stunning drapery, including a dome-style drape on the ceiling above the swing that seated the couple. Generous touches of gold came through the antiques on the stage area, flimsy metallic drapes, as well as the Matkas which were central to the centerpieces. Zahra and Nazim contrasted beautifully in their turmeric yellow ensembles. Zahra looked like a doll in her yellow Bandhni lehenga paired with an orange tulle dupatta, from Seasons India. Loved how Hair by Aliza Babwani gave Zahra a loose side braid woven with fresh jasmine flowers. Moving forward, the carnival-style Mehndi was a visual feast, and was planned to the T with a Paan Dabba stall, Bombay Style Vada Pav, Pani Puri cart, a Chat corner, and a Gola Gadi. Events InStyle decorated the indoors in a regal color palette of purple, gold, and red. The stage area brought in a textural contrast, with silk purple drapes, Butta-print red drapes, and gold splashed all over in sequins. You could tell that Zahra and Nazim truly enjoyed every part of the day. Zahra twirled pretty in a tulle sky blue lehenga ensemble, finished with lovely thread work floral embroidery. We loved her intricate Mehndi design done by Manisha’s Mehndi Design. Nazim’s au courant metallic olive green bandhgala perfectly matched the accents on his bride’s outfit. “We spent countless hours going through wedding videos of couples that had recently married. After speaking to Zach of FengLong Photography, we felt very comfortable and knew that our wedding photography was in the right hands,” recalled Zahra. Well, what are you waiting for? Head to the gallery to revel in the festivities of Zahra and Nazim!
