Nadia & Humair's Romantic and Dreamy Traditional Pakistani Wedding {California}

January 6, 2016 - by Kate

Good morning! I am so excited to share this breathtaking wedding with you on this beautiful day! I promise you'll get swept up into the absolute romance of it all, I know I sure did. I love the soft color palette bride Nadia chose, not to mention the incredibly awesome party that went well into the night.

We talked to bride Nadia about her spectacular wedding day.

Tell us why you selected your location(s) and any unique challenges or experiences you had as a result.

I felt that the Oakland Rotunda was very elegant and grand, and it could host a large party, which I needed for my wedding reception of around 300 people.

Did this locale have a personal significance to either of you or your relationship?

Nope, but now it does!

Tell us about your event in your own words.

I feel like it was traditional and elegant, and the perfect setting to celebrate our wedding.

What moments were most memorable?

It went by so fast, but obviously the actual ceremony was my favorite and the words of advice from our imam.

What was your vision (colors, decor, theme, etc.)? How did you bring it together?

A soft, elegant palette, gold, ivory, peach, and touches of green.

Any unique or notable elements you want to point out?

My favorite part of the decor were the candelabras with the floral arrangments and the gold cake! And my guests really enjoyed the flip book photo booth.

Anything else you'd like to share about your wedding day?

It was fun but I'm glad the wedding is over and we just get to relax and enjoy being married now.
