Good morning, loves! Today we are heading to Washington D.C. for the charming Pakistani wedding of Amina and Fayez inside the walls of the iconic Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium! Bowen Films beautifully filmed how the pair got married in a traditional Islamic ceremony and recorded the lavish party after the union! Photographer, Akbar Sayed Photography, captured every stellar moment like the breathtaking entry of the bride who showed up in a mesmerizing Anarkali suit that harmonized perfectly with her glowing makeup look done by Jacqueline Gellner, Makeup Artist and her henna embellishments by Bhavna’s Henna and Arts. The second of the two traditional parts of the wedding consisted in a fabulous feast catered by the celebrated IndAroma, heartfelt speeches and ended with all the guests ushering the lovely newlyweds to their classic gateway car! See the most romantic Pakistani wedding highlight film down below!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Fayez took Amina to the Lincoln Center in New York City. He proposed in front of the fountain and immediately after, took her to see Star Wars presented by the New York Philharmonic! Fayez knew exactly how to pull off a picture-perfect proposal for his "nerdy" wife.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Knowing that all our friends and family would gather together to celebrate our love - and getting to marry my best friend!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the venue - the Andrew Mellon Auditorium - a historical building in the heart of Washington, D.C. I also got a lot of compliments on the food from IndAroma and our wedding cake from Buttercream Bakeshop (with Batman popping out of the bottom)! The floral stage and centerpieces by L'Ambiance were a delight for guests as well.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first look - seeing Fayez after getting all dressed up was pretty amazing. Going to the Jefferson Memorial with him to take pictures and just have a few moments to ourselves before the wedding started. And of course, the heartfelt speeches made by our families.
 
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
I wanted something elegant and timeless in terms of venue and the feel of the whole night. We kept it classy with pale pinks, white/ivory, gold, and silver for the flowers and decor.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't get too caught up in the little details of the day being perfect - enjoy it - it goes by quickly!
