Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Jamie Howell Photography

Happy Friday, beauty queens! Can you believe how fast this week slipped through our fingers? It is unbelivable! Today, we want to start getting ready for the weekend by taking a look at Sanjida & Mohammad's wedding celebrated during the quarantine. So, get ready to have your hearts melted with tenderness and joy over this awe-inspiring event! Due to COVID-19, these lovebirds' entire wedding plans had to change. While this unfortunate situation could have made almost every other couple feel down and postpone their wedding, it only motivated Sanjida & Mohammad to unite their lives in marriage even with more eagerness. So, they embraced change, came up with a whole new plan, and decided to carry on with their wedding, making the necessary arrangements to comply with all safety measurements! The wedding took place at the Al-Farooq Masjid in Atlanta, GA, where these lovebirds surrounded themselves by their immediate family members. And all we have to say is that this intimate celebration was as meaningful as inspiring! Our gorgeous Sanjida burst into the scene, looking like a princess after being glamorized by Sumiyah Simji, who created a fabulous makeup and hairstyle that praised this Maharani's innate beauty. To complement this head-turning look, Sanjida donned a gorgeous attire from Mumtaz Fashion and got a spectacular Mehndi outlined by Manasi's Art / Hennafy Me. Hands down, a dreamy look for this long-awaited day! Ladies, if you want to enjoy all the beauty surrounding this wedding, don't miss all the captivating shots captured by Jamie Howell Photography in today's gallery. It is a visual delight that will surely take your breath away!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met the groom 4 years ago through some mutual friends and out of the 4 years, we did a long-distance relationship for 3 years. The bond that was formed over the 4 years and how we have been there for each other, helped me know that he was the one.
 
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.
It was my final semester at Georgia Tech, being a final semester electrical engineering student and planning a wedding at the same time are really difficult.
The experience was good with the makeup and hair. It was done by Sumiyah. Took a little longer than expected. I wanted an updo for my hair but due to time constraints we had to settle for a much simpler one.
The actual wedding dress never arrived on time so that was not a good feeling but we were set on the date we picked and we wanted to get married to we went ahead and did it.
Manasi did an amazing job doing my henna and I was more than happy with it. She took her time but listened to exactly what I wanted and followed through.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted my wedding dress to be Ivory color. Funny story that my actual wedding dress did not come through due to the whole COVID-19 situation so we had to get a dress from the local store.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning a wedding is quite stressful if you're doing it during a global pandemic. Rather than being enjoyable, it was rather hectic knowing if it was gonna fall through or now.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Due to COVID-19, the entire wedding plan had to be cancelled. So the wedding took place we Al-Farooq mosque in Atlanta, GA with only about 10 people, our immediate family memebers
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think the most special moment that I keep remembering is the first look I saw on my husband's face when he saw me the first on the wedding day and the big smile that he had when we were pronounced husband and wife.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't try to do everything yourself. Let others help you but make sure they know what exactly you are expecting and the same goes with the wedding planner, the makeup artist, and all the other things. Make sure you do good research on their work and if they would actually fulfill all the requirements
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Most of the things about this wedding fell through due to the COVID-19 situation which is why I don't have much info. I wanted a big wedding just like everyone else but what mattered the most was I was marrying the person I love and that's the most important thing. Having the nikkah ceremony with the people who care the most had to be one of the best feelings ever and I would not have it any other way.

Enjoy your weekend, ladies! See you on Monday for more.

Boutique Hotels... The Chicest Way to Have an Indian Wedding

Boutique hotels are the fresh, new place Indian brides are looking to have their dream Indian weddings, and we see the trend continuing for at least the next few years. As weddings become more intimate, brides are looking for high-end properties that will give them all the luxe details they desire but with a unique, individualized touch. From beaming ocean views to specialty spa services and culinary delights, brides -especially brides who have been planning during the pandemic- only want the very best in service, class, and excellence.

Be the Belle of the Ball

With boutique hotels, your wedding is the only wedding taking place that weekend, which means that you'll have the place all to yourself. You can choose from any of the ceremony locations or get creative and bring new ideas to untapped potential areas. Cocktails on a rooftop, dinner by the pool, a ceremony on a garden, or near the gazebo with light bites to follow, the possibilities are endless!

Personalized Attention

At boutique hotels, the staff strives to roll out the red carpet and provide sophisticated service to each one of their guests. No detail is too small to be overlooked, from food preferences to accommodations, especially for children. With family-oriented culture, the well-trained staff at boutique hotels inclines to be at your service. Aimed always to please, boutique hotels take pride in getting to know their guests up close and personal, even the four-legged variety!

Instagram Angles at Every Corner

Brimming with unparalleled style, boutique hotels are some of the most aesthetically pleasing sites to capture memorable wedding images. These hotels are cohesively designed between indoor and outdoor spaces, color palettes, and art collections, making your images pop on every post. A typical boutique hotel will show off an extraordinary architecture, unlike other hotels you have seen in the past.

All Under the Same Roof

As a guest, nothing surpasses the ease and convenience of staying at the hotel where the wedding is taking place. Transitioning between your mehndi, sangeet, ceremony, reception, and farewell brunch makes the overall wedding experience stress free. Enjoyment will be high, and your wedding will stand out from the crowd as one of the best wedding experiences.

Intimate and Exclusive

Known for being quaint, boutique hotels are made to cater to your wedding guests. Indian weddings can cause quite a stir, and coupled with curious hotel guests who usually want more than a glimpse, your wedding can feel more like a spectacle than a memorable, intimate, and special event. Boutique hotels easily shield weddings from uninvited onlookers and the occasional wedding crasher because you never know who will show up.

Best Locations in Area

Boutique Hotels are smaller and take up less place, so they can often tuck away into a cliffside or squeeze into the center of the city in locations that cannot be surpassed. You are choosing a prime location for your wedding, not to mention that the easy access to activities is essential to provide your guests with things to occupy themselves during the days leading up to the celebration. Whether it is a gorgeous beach or world-class shopping, guests will savor their time exploring the local areas making your wedding truly memorable.

Affordable Pricing

The best part about a boutique hotel is the fact that they are very similar to best in class hotel pricing, all while offering you a more customized wedding experience!

The decor team from the Doubletree Suites by Hilton - Downers Grove set the mood of this long-awaited day, with a soft-colored decor that made everyone sigh! The wall of flowers, the traditional fabrics, and the heavenly Mandap were a perfect combination to take this event to the next level.

Reshma & Narayan combined the traditional Indian flair with a modern and fashionable style, resulting in a fantastic look that we all loved!
