Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing the wedding of two of my dearest clients who have become close friends. This is Part 2 of 4 of Sohail and Ilma’s Muslim wedding. You can find Part 1 here. I’d like to dedicated each post to the significant factors I saw in their wedding that have inspired me in my own life, with today’s post dedicated to Sohail, Ilma’s supportive husband who proved his dedication by being very involved with the wedding planning throughout football season.
Chandni Restaurant in Newark was transformed into a gorgeous vibrant spray of color inspired by Pakistani truck art by Aesthetika Event Planning & Design. The evening began with an exuberant welcoming of Sohail and his family by Ilma’s family. His parent flanked him on each side, both beaming proudly. When Ilma arrived at the stage via palanquin, Sohail’s eyes were bright but soft with affection. One by one family and friends wished Sohail and Ilma good fortune with a henna rasm. As Ilma spoke with the guests, Sohail remained attentive. Sohail is a rare breed of husband. He was highly involved with the planning process, and had a lot of creative input in the plans, including finding and hiring me! Sohail is a perfect compliment to Ilma. He is equally caring, adventurous, and nurtures Ilma’s endeavors.
During the dancing portion of the evening, both Sohail and Ilma’s friends and family honored the couple with well choreographed dances and vignettes. It was easy to see how important these two are to their community!
