Birmingham, AL Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

Good morning Maharanis! I hope you are ready for our filmy day of the week. Today, we will return to a lovely summer day in which Shaista & Umair commemorated their marriage. Ladies, I have to say this is one of the most captivating celebrations I have seen! It's the heart and energy you can sense just right away. L3 Event Services outdid themselves with the design for these lovebirds' wedding day. I adored so many details, but the first has to be the Mehndi art Henna by Rozisalim did for our Maharani. The grace of every piece made Shaista shine like the star she is! And not only was her attire breathtaking, but so was her prince charming, with a gorgeous sherwani and a luxurious tuxedo from Kamran Bespoke. They were reigning! I don't have enough words to describe the beauty of this gala. The Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa was the best choice our couple could make to have their revelry. The alluring sophistication this place provides is remarkable, and the decor The Event Designer brought was the perfect addition to it, filling the atmosphere with class and grace. The elegant bouquets looked glorious and thoroughly matched the couples' style. Indeed, all the guests were enamored with them. The fascinating adornment was not the only thing they enjoyed. The gastronomic delight, courtesy of Asmas Cuisine, was phenomenal! The lovebirds ensure everyone had the time of their lives with the Outspoken Visions Entertainment team in charge of keeping a cherry climate and a never-ending dance throughout the celebration. Their wedding will be engraved in Shaista & Umair's souls' for a lifetime, and they will be able to relive it all thanks to the work Hakim's Studio did to capture the essence of the grand day. Feeling pours through every second! You can catch a glimpse of their romance. Just click the play button below.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Umair and Shaista met in Nashville on Dec. 30th, 2018. Umair had moved down to Nashville a few months before and was upset that his boss had made him stay back to work. Little did he know it was God's plan to keep him there to meet his future wife ;) Shaista was down in Birmingham for her friend’s wedding. Her siblings and some of their friends decided to do New Years together in Nashville. On Dec. 30 Umair was on Broadway watching the Titans game and met up with their mutual friend at Jason Aldean's. Shaista and her sisters had wrapped up the wedding festivities and got there a little later and met up with the rest of the crew there. Shaista went to say hi, and of course received a semi-cold response from Umair so she said bye. (P.S. if you know Umair you know about his RBF, and how sometimes it’s not very welcoming.)
So you ask, well how did they finally get together?
Shaista and Umair credit this to her sister and friend, but the long-story short version includes a random guy being too handsy, some yelling/schooling on feminism, and a big misunderstanding that brought Umair and Shaista close together. This led to some Vegas bombs and some oversharing (being a doctor means sometimes people aka Umair felt obligated to share and got a free consultation visit out of it). Also, can’t forget Umair’s untied shoe that kept bothering Shaista so she finally just tied it for him. Maybe that’s what tied them together for life.
After that Umair slid into Shaista's DM's literally!!! He found a way to be with her all weekend long. One of Shaista's favorite memories of the weekend is when they snuck away from the group with just her BFF (Namita) and BFF’s husband to the dance floor and Umair was trying to get her BFF’s husband to dance while Namita and Shaista just watched. (If you know the both of them you know how entertaining that scene would be).
Thinking this might be a New Year’s fling, Shaista flew back to Fort Worth and Umair is still upset he couldn't be the one to drop her to the airport to this day (How romantic!) However, Umair continued to keep in touch with Shaista through Facetimes, messages, etc., and the rest is history!
I don’t know if I know of a particular time when I thought Umair was the one. However, the one thing that comes to mind, is how easily and quickly Umair made his spot in my family. My little sister moved to Nashville 5 months into us dating, where he was living while I lived in Dallas. My mother would visit my baby sister there often and the 3 of them would hang out, play Open Rummy, board games, and eat dinner. It made us all feel safe knowing he was there, since she is the baby of the family and had never lived away from home prior to this. I loved how easily he got along with my family and that I didn’t need to be present for them all to hangout.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Umair had originally planned to propose in April 2020, but COVID struck and unfortunately his original grand plan including helicopters, 200-plus family and friends, and much more was brought to a halt. He didn't lose hope, and knew he wanted to make Shaista his wife soon, so he came up with another plan that was more intimate. Shaista the detective was a little too hard to surprise, but Umair still somehow managed to have some surprise elements. He proposed to her in Dallas, the city they would soon be making their home, with their closest family and friends around. They had purchased their first home during COVID and 2 weeks after closing was the big day! Shaista’s mom and baby sister were in town to help her get the house set up. A day before the proposal Shaista’s baby sister suggested they get their nails done (which was a little suspicious but her baby sister played it off well. Shaista’s BFF and middle sister had also said they can’t be there during July 4th weekend due to work so she got thrown off). The day - July 3rd - started with high tea since Shaista loves high tea so much. He sent her out with her mother and baby sister for tea, claiming he had work and couldn’t make it since it was a Friday. Afterwards, Raeesa (her baby sister) “forgot” something at home, so they all made a quick stop at the house. They didn’t even turn the car off and for some reason were convinced they all had to run into the house. The next thing you know the house is set up with beautiful memories of their journey together thus far. From the entrance of the house started a lovely dance full of surprising entrances and moments done by her sisters, BFF, brother in laws, and the moms. The dance ended with the road to the backyard where Umair was waiting all suited up in 100 degree Dallas weather with a few more surprises up his sleeve (literally, since Shaista had lost her dad 12 years ago he had a picture of Shai and her dad as his cufflinks and wore one of her dad’s old ties). He asked her after showing her a slide show with more of their memories and with her dream ring and she of course said YES!!!

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 took a couple months after the engagement to enjoy that period before we started wedding planning. It was an unpredictable time to start planning given COVID. We debated having a small wedding but both of us especially I had always wanted to get all my people from the different phases of life (high school, college, medical school, residency, work, etc.) under one roof. Anyways first thing was deciding location, which we both agreed on Hoover, Alabama as one that was my childhood town, my mom still lived there, it was close to Umair’s childhood town of Memphis, and most importantly it was the town where my father’s last memories were present. We toured a few different hotels there and when we both saw Renaissance Ross Bridge, we fell in love. It was what we envisioned - a wedding with a vacation. We initially booked a venue a couple minutes away for the sangeet since I wanted different vibes for the events, however we wanted desi food and the original venue was not cooperative. However, I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason because we found our perfect Sangeet venue with everything we envisioned plus more at Soiree Event Gallery (just look at the pictures there and all the beautiful chandeliers that light up the room). Plus, they were very easy to work with which was an added bonus. That same weekend that we finalized our original venue (in September about 12 months before our wedding date), I took Umair to try Bayleaf as I loved the Indian fusion themed food and drinks (we served a paan Old fashion, and Mango-jito) which ended up being crowd favorites. After that we worked on photographer and Umair only wanted Hakims Studios. I was always a fan of their work, but after working with them would highly recommend them to anyone especially if you want your photos to be grand- looking and remind you of a Bollywood type event. We also booked our event planner L3 events about a year in advance. I had seen her and her team live in action previously and I loved how organized, fierce, young, and relatable she is. Next, on our list was picking reception food, we picked Pakistani food to be balance the Indian and Pakistani taste that both our families have. We sampled several different places but loved the food at Asma’s. I wanted some of the food items to be served with a twist, such as the falooda in a martini glass, and Imran from Asma’s helped us come up with fun ways to amp up the presentation. Everyone still talks about how delicious their food was.
About 9 months out from the wedding I started reaching out and even went did some hair and make-up trials. I initially wanted to go with someone local however traveling back and forth for hair and makeup trials wasn’t feasible. Thus I ended up searching for someone local in the DFW area that’s when on Instagram I came across Makeup.Faced by Reetu. I set up and hair and make-up trial and my husband came to the trial with me. This was our second hair and make-up artist but when she completed my make up let’s just say we both were blown away with how pretty I looked but still felt so natural. For my Henna artist, I searched some local photographers’ pages on IG and fell in love with Rozi’s work (IG page Henna by RoziSalim), and she did an amazing job giving me the henna of my dreams. As far as the DJ we checked out several DJ’s we had heard at weddings over IG and reached out to our top 5 favorite. This was Umair’s department so he did his due diligence while picking them. We danced nonstop for 5 hours on Saturday at the reception, the music and especially the DHOL player was on fire.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
When selecting the person to make my outfits, I knew it had to be Millionaire collection. She had for years been making clothes for me and they always looked amazing. All my inspo came from hours of being on IG and then I would give her 2-3 pictures and we would talk through how I imagined my outfit looking. She probably in the 9 months I worked with her for all my wedding outfit looks spent at least 60 hours in person or over the phone helping me make all my dream outfits. I knew I wanted a winter/clean look themed reception and wanted to wear a dark shade of blue for reception. For sangeet I was in love with lavender but my sisters wanted me to be in something brighter. (which I am glad they did cause my favorite outfit was probably the hot pink lengha). I had hints of lavender on my outfit to match my bridesmaid outfits that Kulsum Aunty from Millionaire’s collection made. For mehendi, I wanted to be in something Floral, and something that would not interfere with my mehendi, but have something that kept me warm incase I got cold with the mehendi on. So we came up with a 3/4th mint green and floral themed lengha and blouse with a short sleeve detachable jacket. My Nikkah saree all came from this one blouse I was obsessed with. Together with Kulsum Aunty and after several pictures/phone calls/Facetimes we finally agreed upon the perfect saree design to go with the blouse, and a subtle pink dupatta to wear on my head to go with the retro-Indian royalty vibe I was looking for. Also wanted to recognize Hamraniatelier who made my sisters MOH outfits for the reception.
For my husband we knew we wanted to use Kamran Bespoke for both his Nikkah and Reception outfits. Which he customized each one to reflect something about our relationship on there. His pithi and Sangeet outfit was made my Millionaire’s collection to match mine.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
To be honest wedding planning is one of the most stressful things I had ever done and know that I love planning parties. Maybe it was the timing with work and COVID but it was the most hectic process ever. I was blessed that both our parents wanted whatever we wanted, and Umair and I were open and on the same page with expectations. The most enjoyable process for me though was watching Umair go from being completely confused and not knowing what all entails wedding planning to me just telling him my vision and him making it happen. For us I felt like I was having to do a lot of the heavy lifting the first few months and essentially helping create the rough outline of expectations and to-do list. However, the last 6 months he took over as work got hectic for me. I just had to tell him this is what I want, or what I envision and he took over. In fact, I was joking with my wedding planner recently about how she had a board to help keep everything organized with to-do lists, contracts, etc - everything that was needed for her to make this wedding run smoothly. My husband took care of everything, I still don’t even know how to get to the board. He made sure everything was taken care of. I said this during my speech and I will say it again; I may have been the mind behind the wedding, but Umair was the hands and it’s all thanks to his hard work I got my dream wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There are 3 moments that always replay from the wedding. The first was sangeet day when Umair was talking to my sister and I walked and tapped him to say I am here. His expression made me feel like the prettiest person ever. No camera caught it but his expression is forever etched in my heart and memory. The second memory was when the Umair got to wear the Dhol and I got to play it. The third one was when the DJ played “Ram Jaane” which is Umair’s favorite Bollywood movie and one of the 5 Bollywood movies he had watched before he met me. I was across the room talking to some friends and ran across the room when I heard the song. Umair happened to be on stage with his best friend. I started taking off his shirt, ran to the dance floor grabbed someone’s suit jacket got Umair to wear it with his tank. His best friend brought at tie to wear to put on Umair’s head. I looked at Umair and said live your dream of wanting to be Ram Jaane at your wedding. We danced the rest of the song as him being Shahrukh khan in the movie, and me bouncing from being Juhi Chawla in the movie to being one of SRK/ aka Umair’s fan girls.

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.
For anyone who knows me knew that my wedding would not be complete without multiple dances. For sangeet night we opened up with a dream come to reality which was a dance-off between the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen. Everyone blew us away with their moves( s/o to all the girls and guys who put their best of there but the crowd favorite was Jess doing a cart wheel in a lengha). Do I even have to tell yall the winners were the bride’s side. This was followed up with a sweet dance by my niece. Next up was an amazing dance by 3 not so little kids who I babysat since they were less than 1 and now are like 11 and 16 yrs old. After that my cousins put on heartwarming show with my sisters, mom, and aunts. My college friends did a dhamaka filled dance to some of our favorite songs we jammed out to back in the day. Umair’s side put on a show with their 20 cousins, friends, and all his loved ones. The Sangeet dances ended with a dance performance I choreographed that included the closest people to me, which started with me and my 2 sisters that started with Eli re Eli( a song about 3 sisters that we always related to and promised to do a small piece at each others wedding. Then my mom joined us and all 4 of us danced to Mungda. My sisters and left and I did a duet with my mom to Maye ni Maye from Hum aapke hai kaum( one of umair’s favorite moves, where my mom is saying no to getting me married). I did a solo dance to Vaaste, a song whose lyrics make me melt and Umair fell in love with the song with the amount of times I made him hear it. My best friend then danced with me to Biloni there lal ghaara( I was wearing hot pink that’s in the family of reds right). Having being a bridesmaid atleast 10 times before my wedding, we danced to the part of when I will be a bride from Yaad piya ki Aane laagi( the new version) and Ghenda Phool by Badshah with my bridesmaids. The next song was extra special, as it is Umair’s all time favorite Movie/song and I have no clue why. He always told me he wished he could be Ram Jaane. Thus mybrother in laws joined me for a special surprise for Umair to his all-time favorite song. We ended with my sisters, Brother-in-laws, and Umair’s 2 left feet dancing Akhiyon se Goli Maare. The reception dance was our love story via Bollywood songs, narrated by my sisters with a few surprises mixed in there. It was very special and no words could do it justice. It’s just something you have to watch.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
First take a couple months to enjoy your engagement as wedding planning is stressful. Start planning early and incorporate it into your day-to-day life such as using social media to start saving dresses, themes, decors you like. Next find vendors whose work reflects your vision of your wedding, and that you can talk freely to. Don’t be afraid to reach out to the bride/groom of some of the weddings they have worked on to ensure they all had a positive experience. If you can, plan for 2 henna sessions one preferably the day before for the moms, aunts, etc. so the day of their hands are free to be able to help you and for them to feel like they can cater to the guests. Have at least 2-3 Makeup trials with the same picture you show, so you can compare both the artistic work and see which one is how you envision yourself. Pick one person who knows you the best and is willing to make decisions on your behalf that your wedding planner can go to. Have a wedding planner!! Lastly, the moment your first event starts, just remember to have fun and make the most of it. Everything will not be perfect, but just remember all your loved ones are under one roof to celebrate you and your love, so don’t worry about the little details and just enjoy every minute cause it will all be gone in a blink of an eye.

Sweeties, that's it for this entry. I'll see for the next love story!

So don't think twice and hit the play icon below to start enjoy it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Mohammad ("Mo") while I was doing my Master's program in Boston. He moved there for work. I was trying to be more social at the mosque, so I decided to go out with a group of people for bowling. Mo was working late that night, but one of his friends (who planned the bowling night) convinced Mo take a break and join us. That's the first night we met and hung out together.

When we met, it was an instant spark. As I got to know Mo as friends, I saw a lot of signs that pointed towards him being "the one". We got along really well, shared many of the same values and ideals in life, which for me was a rare find, and we supported each other with our goals and ambitions. There wasn't really one specific moment where I knew - I think there were lots of mini moments that confirmed that we were meant to be together through the course of our relationship.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We both come from a traditional family! So there was no proposal. We had a very traditional engagement ceremony with our family and friends, complete with the ring exchange, dinner, and dancing.

He did surprise me with the most amazing date night, with dinner at the same place as our very first date, a walk through our favorite neighborhood, and dropping down on one knee to ask me to marry him.....A MONTH BEFORE our wedding. I guess all the hints I dropped about wanting to be proposed to post-engagement really worked.

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.
Wedding planning was stressful because I was planning a 3 day wedding in Atlanta from Boston, but I started very early. I secured the venue, decorator, photo/videographer and caterer 10-11 months before the date. I relied mostly on word of mouth - vendors I knew have done an exceptional job in the past. I looked through Instagram and Facebook to see their work as well. I had a list of priorities where I knew I couldn't compromise on: food was a big one. At a desi wedding, the only thing that your guests care about is food. Photo/video was another priority because that's all that would be left to look at once the big day was over.

I will say, if I had to plan my wedding all over again, I would not change a single vendor. They were all so amazing to work with and they were truly amazing people that I got to know during that year of planning.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Most girls have a vision of how they want their dress to look like years and years in advance. I just knew I wanted my dress to be the traditional red. I had a few ideas (long top, skirt) but I was very open to other ideas. I traveled to Pakistan for my wedding shopping and relied on word of mouth about which designer would be the best one for me. The first (and only) place we went to was PLK (they're super well known in Pakistan), and that's where I got every single outfit designed (from scratch) for myself. Because I didn't have any specific idea or vision for the dress, I was able to mix and match designs, fabrics, shades of color, and styles for every inch of my wedding dress.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
THE FOOD. To this day, we have family and friends talk about how AMAZING food was at our wedding. I'm so glad I went with Asma's Cuisine. They catered my engagement dinner and I knew that day that they would be the only ones that would cater my wedding.

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.
We had a very traditional 3 day desi wedding. The first day was mehndi, second was pithi/haldi + sangeet, and the third day was Nikkah in the morning with a reception in the evening.

I didn't have too many ideas for my decor, with the exception of the backdrop for sangeet and reception. Yasmin Khan of RoyalDekors really helped bring out my creative and visionary side and added her own experience and input to come up with decor that would look unique and beautiful for each event.

The dances at the sangeet were another favorite moment. Mo and my friends and our cousins did a 45 minute sequence of dances and a skit that portrayed our love story. We had a cousins/siblings dance for both sides, a girls dance, a guys dance, and a ShoMo dance followed by the skit.

Reception was quick because I really wanted to have a large amount of time dedicated to open dance floor. After our entrance, we had our first dance, cake cutting, speeches, and then we played the shoe game - you know, the one where we sit back to back holding one of each other's shoes as we get asked questions about each other - followed by dinner and dancing.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start planning early. Us girls have a very specific vision of how we want our wedding to be for years and years. And if that is the case with you, it is best to start planning well in advance to secure your vendors who can make your dream wedding a reality. Come up with a list of things that you do not want to compromise on (for me, it was food and photo/video) and set your budget accordingly. I also think it's so important to try and take your wedding day one moment at a time. The day really flies by fast so enjoy it as much as you can!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My makeup and hair was done by Saba Jawed of Color Impressions by Saba. She was so great to work with. Because I didn't have a clear vision for each look, she really worked with me to figure out how to make each look for every event beautiful and unique. She made me look and feel like a Maharani bride.

My mehndi was done by Nikki Karimi from Beauty you Deserve and I LOVED her work. I really wanted mehndi that was very intricate and that's exactly what she did.

I also decided to get fresh flower gajray bracelets made for my sangeet night. Gardlands by Yasmin did that and I think she also did an amazing job. I showed her the color of my outfit and she made beautiful bracelets to match my outfit.

My cake was made by Nausheen Amir of Inspirations Unlimited. I asked her to incorporate my bridal lengha designs into the cake and she did just that. The cake looked spectacular and really complimented by bridal lengha.

We hope you enjoyed today's post, so make sure to visit us back on Monday! We have more for you.

If what we just described sounded awesome, wait to hit the play icon below and get ready to be amazed as words are not enough to describe this spectacular celebration of love!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ashish and I crossed paths in Fall of 2016 at a Falcons tailgate. We were introduced to each other through mutual friends. (Website gives a full description)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ashish planned the perfect proposal! It was Thanksgiving Day and we had planned to go to his sister's house for a wonderful dinner. Both of our families and friends were all having a fun time. Prior to eating dinner, we all wrapped around the island into a circle and took turns saying what we were thankful for. Ashish somehow managed to plan out where I would go right after him. (Of course by doing this, he knew that I would be so focused on my turn being next and not pay attention to him or what he was saying). During his turn, he talked about all of the things he was thankful for and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! For everyone that knows me, I am the hardest person to surprise but he did it! He somehow managed to get all of our families and friends together and plan the sweetest and most thoughtful proposal!
 
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.
With Ashish and I both being Virgos, we were organized and ready to plan this wedding! From google spreadsheets to shared calendars, we were unstoppable!. Our experiences with Erica Bogart (Hair), Mital Dhodia (Decor), Surinder Bedi (Reception Outfit) and Dhaval Patel (Food) were phenomenal! Each one of our vendors went out of their way to make sure things were perfect for us on our big day!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Growing up with 2 sister's, my mom has always done our Indian clothes shopping for us. We have built a strong trust factor in knowing she will get exactly what we want. I told my mom I wanted something different and definitely wanted a coral color incorporated into the dress.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part for both Ashish and I was to plan a reception at the Mercedes Benz Stadium! Once we were told we had the venue lockdown on the date we wanted, we were super excited to start planning! To be the first ever wedding reception at this venue made it an even better experience!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved everything about our wedding for food, decor and entertainment! But most of all, our guests loved having the experience of being able to sit on the field for our reception!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first time stepping out on the field with everything set up. We walked onto the field to take pictures but both Ashish and I had to take a step back to take everything in and remember that moment forever. To be able to have our photos on the halo and screens inside the stadium was priceless!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
R. My words of wisdom for other brides- All of the fights and arguments that will come about during the planning process will not matter at the end of the day. Always remember the only thing that matters will be you and your significant other on your special day!

That is all for today, ladies! Come back tomorrow for more amazingness!
