Good morning, beauty queens! We are right in the middle of this week, and what better way to start this Wednesday than taking a look at all the beauty surrounding Mehreen & Hussain's real-life fairytale. So, let's not wait any longer and jump right into it! Right from the start, we have to say that today's wedding affair packs tons of beauty, love, and traditional flair, so you can imagine how thrilled we were when we laid our eyes into the magnificent shots captured by Texpertz Photography. From all pre-wedding events, including a colorful Mehndi celebrated at the Crystal Banquet Hall, to the closing gala, everything was perfect! One of the most anticipated moments was the magical wedding ceremony hosted inside the halls of the Marriott Grapevine. Still, what we loved the most was the enchanting reception party that bring the wedding festivities to an end. The interiors of the reception venue, completely transformed into a mesmerizing backdrop filled with elegance and traditional flair thanks to the marvelous decor put together by none other than the talented team from Events by Faiza. They took our lovebirds' vision of a dream wedding and made it a dream come true. Although the decor was something to die for, it was our gorgeous Maharani Mehreen who stole the show after being pampered by Sarah Aasif Artistry. The exquisite makeup and the classy hairstyle praised this Maharani's natural beauty and complemented to perfection with the artistic Mehndi design by Samira's Henna Designs! Hands down, a fabulous look that exceeded all expectations! Going back to the party, all we have to say is that it was an epic one! And how could it not be if it was entirely animated by DJ RubyRu, who owned the stage and played the hits of the moment that set the dancefloor on fire! All guests danced the night away, and the only time the dancing stopped was to take a bite at the sweet and mouth-melting cake baked by C. Marie's Sweets! If you can't get enough of this lovely couple and want to take a closer look at their fabulous celebration of love, don't miss the jaw-dropping gallery captured that we have prepared for you. Every single shot is an absolute visual delight that you don't want to miss, so go check them all out. We are sure you will love them!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were introduced through a mutual friend and hit it off instantly during our first brunch date at Saint Ann's in Dallas. Like they say, "When you know, you know!"
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Being a huge macaron lover, I was told to doll up as we were going to a macaron baking class along with a fancy dinner for date night. We reached an abandoned location known as Off the Grid and made our way inside. I was confused, but with each step, I noticed roses and candles and that's when I pieced it all together. Once we reached the roof, his sweet friends surprised us. I was in shock from not only seeing them, but from seeing the beautiful Dallas skyline. I, then turned to Hussain and noticed he was on one knee and well, *cue water works* - you know what happens next!
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
We managed to plan and coordinate every single thing with the help of our family and friends. Though it was stress inducing and time consuming, we wanted to relish in the experience of wedding planning. And when it all came together, we were that much happier!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Considering our culture has multiple events, I knew I wanted a different color palette for each one. For the wedding, I kept it traditional, but different. I wanted a three-tone outfit as that's what was said to be "in." My hot pink kameez, blood-red gharara, and maroon dupatta gave me just what I wanted - shoutout to Annus Abrar!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Coming to an agreement on venues, outfits, the cake, all of it!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests were blown away! From the decor to the cake to the food to the timely manner of the each event, they were left speechless.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The entirety of it was filled with several special moments, but during our first dance was when it all came together. As I was swaying with my husband, I was glancing around and thought "this is it!"
