Real Wedding Day Inspiration - Asmi and Ameer

Hello dear readers! I hope you've had a lovely weekend and are ready to dive into the week ahead. The week's Real Wedding Day Inspiration is courtesy of the fabulous New York wedding photographers AGAiMAGES. As you may have guessed, I am a huge fan of culturally significant weddings. I adore the attention to detail, the marriage of past and present and the sheer exuberance of the celebration. Our couple, Asmi and Ameer, incorporated their Pakistani heritage in both their wedding ceremony which was held at Cipriani as well as the mehendi ceremony we will feature on Wednesday.

Beauty time with the bride
I love the grandness of these flowers
gumpaste flowers on the cake and the wedding florals. Notice how the arrangement stretches with the curly willow to capitalize on the high ceilings of the venue.
The bride's henna'd hands. I don't know if you've ever had your hands painted with henna but it is quite a lengthy process so I can appreciate the design's details. Also, look at the stone work of Asmi's ensemble. Talk about sparkle.
A lovely mother/daughter moment
What strikes me most about this image is the guest's colorful attire.
Asmi is a gorgeous bride, the craftmanship of her wedding ensemble is breath-taking. I love that she chose to wear a color outside of white/ivory.
The happy couple exchanging rings.
The new Mr & Mrs
The reception area before guest arrivals. Each centerpiece is individually lit, showcasing it's beauty. Lighting is an important part of the overall look of an event.
The newlyweds first dance.
Ameer looks so happy. That's how one should feel on their wedding day.
Look at this guest's colorful dress. The gentleman on the right, love his tie. Perfect shade of bridal pink.
An adorable party goer
It's party time!

Be sure to visit us again on Wednesday for the mehendi ceremony. Asmi and Ameer's wedding was color and vibrant. What will your color pallette be? Will you incorporate lighting into your budget? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!
