Dearborn, MI Pakistani Wedding by Ayesha Khan Photography

Happy Thursday, Maharanis! Today's celebration of love is not just elegant but truly faithful to traditional Pakistani weddings, and we are sure you are going to love it. So, let's not wait any longer and get ready to enjoy Yousra & Adeel's big wedding bash! Being this a life-changing event, it is no surprise that this young couple wanted to immortalize all the moments surrounding it. That is why they decided to bring Ayesha Khan Photography on board, who snapped shots from every angle and created the spectacular gallery that we are sharing with you today. But that is not all! Yousra & Adeel also called New Signature Films, who produced a cinematographic delight that we can't stop seeing! It was so amazing that we couldn't help to feature it in today's Video Blog, so you might want to check it out as well! The wedding festivities started with a Mehndi ceremony hosted at the Golden Gate Banquet Hall, and we adored every moment of it. The colorfulness and the merriment of this opening ceremony became perfect preambles for what was coming down the road. And "What was coming down the road?" you might be wondering. Well, Yousra & Adeel had a beautiful Shadi at the Islamic Center of Ann Arbor, where they profess their love and commitment to each other. A fabulous Walima followed this solemn ceremony, and oh boy, we loved every bit of it. The halls of the Bellagio Banquet & Conference Center transformed into a cornucopia of elegance and traditional flair thanks to the fantastic decor crafted by Yasmeena Floral. There was so much beauty all over the place, but nothing quite as mesmerizing as our gorgeous Maharani, who looked breathtaking dressed in a fashionable lengha from Naz Fashion Bug, after being glamorized by Hair and Makeup by Aliaa. And let's not forget about the dazzling pieces of jewelry she got from Precious by Maira and Simmy Designs, and the artistic Mehndi designed by Zainab's Mehndi. It was all a winning combination resulting in a drop-dead gorgeous look! When dinner time arrived, all guests enjoyed the delicious plates prepared by Kazi Catering, right before having a bite at the mouth-melting cake baked by Petite Sweets Detroit. In between all the dancing, the delicious food, and emotional speeches, the night got to an end. But the end of the night was only the beginning of Yousra & Adeel's love story!

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.
I planned my wedding in a short-period of time (6 months.) So when I was planning I had to move quickly, I had been following my wedding vendors on instagram for sometime and as soon as a date was set I started getting quotes and finagling everything as quick as I could.
 
My wedding planning experience was overall very fun and hectic. I planned my wedding in under 6 months, after realizing the venue we had chosen only had that date, and nothing else for the next year or so! I had a great support system helping me plan. My vendors were amazing!! Especially my photographer & videographer. I had been following Ayesha on Instagram for a while and contacted her immediately after setting a date. Finding my videographer was a little harder, I was a little hesitant at first because he wasn’t “known” in the desi community but he did such an amazing job!!
 
Planning the decor was fun but a lot didn’t go in we plan. I fell in love with my stage after seeing it at another wedding on Instagram once so I insisted on using the same florist that did the same stage, but the experience was not as good as she missed many details we had gone over. Looking back she was the only vendor I wouldn’t recommend.
 
My hair & makeup were done by the same vendor! She was so nice and sweet. I had gone to her for a trial, my bridal shower makeup, & mehndi makeup as well. This was a great decision because by my wedding she was comfortable with my face and knew what worked for me and what didnt!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a wedding dress disaster!!! I ordered a dress from Pakistan originally,  but when it arrived it wasn’t what was advertised. So me and my mom got in a car the next day and drove to canada to find a dress. I went to a few stores, but I bought the dress that I first tried on. I loved the unique color, and the detailing.
 
My whole life I had planned that I would go to Pakistan to go dress shopping, but with the little amount of time that I had and because of budget restrictions, I chose to order my dress online. BIG MISTAKEEEEE. It was not what I expected, and after seeing it I knew I couldn’t wear it. Two days later me and my mom drove to Canada to visit bridal boutiques. That’s where I found my dress, it was the first dress I tried on. I always wanted to wear maroon, but once I saw my cranberry dress, I fell in love.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me the process of planning out the small details was the funnest!! I loved scrolling through my Pinterest/IG feed looking at everyone else’s wedding.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our dessert table! It was so nicely put together & not to mention gorgeous. Our vendor mixed traditional desi desserts onto the table and I loved it! We also had a fresh jalebi maker in the kitchen!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A really special moment for me was when my mom was helping me get ready! I loved hearing our siblings speeches.
 
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.
My Mehndi was super colorful and fun! I ordered the dance floor cover from Pakistan, and loved all the color and detail on it. I made the canopy I walked in under, and I made the Shai Supari Wall For our Mehndi, me and my Husband learned our dance in the car after our photoshoot!!! We probably looked like idiots in front of everyone but we had fun.  Me, my mom, my dad built our shahi supari backdrop as well as the canopy I walked in under.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress & don’t over think it. Everything will work out. No ones even going to notice the small things you think are important. The venue completely messed up on my choice of linens and I didn’t even realize until I was looking at my wedding pictures. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Everything turned out great!!! My mehndi was done by a local mehndi artist!! A fun fact is she was the first person other than my mom to ever do my mehndi.
 
My jewelry was mix and matched between a local jewelry vendor and a vendor from Canada.
 
My cake was gorgeous & I loved it so much. I’m glad I decided to showcase it on my wedding stage.

What a fabulous wedding celebration, isn't it ladies? Remember that we have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more!

Welcome back, Maharanis! Maha & Shawn's real-life fairytale continues, and we are here to share all the details that you want to know about it! So let's take a peek at how these lovebirds tied the knot! The big wedding day arrived, and Maha & Shawn were more than ready to unite their lives in marriage. But, before heading over to the ceremony, they decided to take an intimate moment for themselves. A romantic and peaceful moment before everything kicked off! They looked elegant and fashionable on their traditional wedding outfits, and the talented folks from Park Street Weddings did not let the opportunity go by, and took lots of beautiful shots that seemed taken out from a fairytale! They are so amazing that we have spent a lot of time in our gallery, just admiring these shots!
