Hello, ladies! Today we dedicate our post to the unique Bangladeshi Muslim affair of Liza and Kazi, this alluring union was full of amusement and joy but mainly style! Liza knew exactly what she wanted for her special day and selected a stunning pink lush Sabyasachi dress, delicately adorned with sequins that formed beautiful patterns and that complied with the “Summer Floral” wedding theme. Bridal Rang by Samiha’s glam team took care of our bride creating a gorgeous side updo and subtle makeup that completed Liza’s vision. As his princess bride, our charming groom Kazi looked picture perfect in a light mint floral sherwani and raised his style with a pink long-tail turban. Once these two were ready for their big moment, Canvas New York Photography caught the couple’s first look with an utterly romantic outdoor photo shoot. Peruse through the wonderful images in our full gallery!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband maybe about 5-6 years ago. But I have known about him for a very long time and to our surprise, we used to live right across from one another. My building was on the other side of the block from his, but we never really met until one day he messaged me on Facebook and said: "you know we live right across from each other" and from there on everything just went in its place. How did I know he was the one.. honestly I don't remember when was the exact time but maybe I knew he was the one from the very beginning.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
So, since it was a Bangladeshi wedding, there was no formal "proposal." We always knew in the long run that we wanted to get married and when the time was right we were going to let our parents know about it. After a couple of years of being together we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together so we eventually we told our families, and from there on everything just happened on its own.
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.
Once we decided to get married, now it was the whole planning business. I honestly had a love-hate relationship with all the planning but at the end, it was all worth it. First and foremost, a friend of ours, Rana - from Glitz & Glamour events, runs a wedding planning service and with him around it went smoothly. He helped us throughout almost everything! and I mean everything, from decor to centerpieces, and almost everything. First, finding a venue was sort of difficult especially with the budget control and finding that "perfect place" but we eventually found our place - Castle Royal, and we loved it. Next, for Hair & Makeup - I only wanted one person and that was Samiha from Bridalrangbysamiha. I knew from the very beginning that if and when I was getting married then the only person that would do my hair and makeup would be her. For outfits, finding "the outfit" was kind of hard and not so hard. I always wanted to be a "Sabyasachi" bride and honestly, I didn't want to look anywhere else. So I contacted them right away and knew what type of dress I wanted. I wanted something light color and with "summery" feel to it. And also, our theme for the wedding was "summer floral" so with sticking to that theme I went with a peachy/blush pink color dress and my husband went to floral minty green/peach sherwani. For my jewelry, I kept it pretty simple as I didn't want it to too much. I wore a green emerald/stone kundan set with tikka and jumoor.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our wedding. With it being a year already, people are still talking about our wedding. Friends and family are still asking and looking for inspiration from our wedding. One particular thing they loved was the simplicity. we kept most of the stuff simple and light. Our stage was just a flower wall with lanterns and candles on the floor. Our centerpieces were just few baby breath flowers and two pink roses in a mason jar. I wanted to keep the centerpieces very simple and clean without those extravagant flower vases.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
One special moment that still keeps replaying in my head is when we said our " I do's." It was one of the most special and unforgettable moment in my life and I will never forget it. We had our Nikkah completed on the same day as our reception and it was so special and lovable that till today I can't forget that moment.
