The lighting, the angles, and the beautiful way each detail has been captured by Fragola Productions! I can't get over the royal look of this Valima at the ulta lux Alhambra Palace in Chicago!  I especially love how these two chose to have a fusion Valima, because... I'll just admit it.  After seeing the bride look so gorgeous in such traditional style, I was just dying to see her rock the vintage look!  And she totally owns it! Absolutely stunning from head to toe, in an elegant, long white dress, and wearing sparkling diamonds and red lipstick, her hair in a 20's style updo... she looks like a doll!  And take a look at their centerpieces! Don't they look so delicious? That's's the first time I have seen them...edible centerpieces, what a fabulous idea!

Have a great rest of the week Maharanis!
From Maharani Samreen:
I think I was the most excited for our Valima because it was an event that really gave us the opportunity to relax and have a good time.  Since my husband is of Palestinian and Egyptian descent, I had decided early on that I'd wear a white wedding dress.  My overall wedding style is pretty traditional, but for this party I wanted a vintage feel so I went with a 20's look with my hair, make-up and dress.  One of the wedding gifts from my parents was the stunning diamond jewelry that I wore at the Valima, which ended up matching the beading on my dress perfectly.  Our venue was very ornate and didn't require much decor.  And since my husband doesn't like to wait too long for food at a wedding, we decided to go with fruit arrangements as centerpieces rather than flowers - so our guests had a chance to nosh before and in between courses.  Our escort cards and menus were hand made by yours truly :) Our DJ was great with merging Arabic, Desi and American music, keeping our dance floor active all  night.
