Last week, I started sharing the wedding of two of my dearest clients who have become close friends. This is the final part of Sohail and Ilma’s four-part Muslim wedding. You can find Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 here. I have been dedicating each post to the significant factors I saw in their wedding that have inspired me in my own life, and today’s post dedicated to friends and family.
The night started as the sun set in Fremont. Sohail and Ilma got ready in the same room. Close friends helped the couple get ready with the Golden Globes playing in the background. It had been a little under a week since we last saw each other, and though everyone was more relaxed, the excitement of the wedding festivities for Ilma and Sohail still lingered.
Sohail, ever the dapper gentleman, got ready quickly, but did not lack any detail. From his new Movado watch from his in-laws, to the monogrammed cuffs and custom suit, Sohail exuded style. Ilma radiated in her pink gown, and while it’s easy to assume the source of her glow was the freshly applied makeup, it was more likely the distinct glow of a woman newly wed.
Atypical of normal Muslim wedding traditions, Ilma’s family held another party for the couple with a Chandni Restaurant wedding reception, round two, because they are just so loved! This time, Ilma and Sohail used a soft white and pink color palate to that complimented Ilma’s ensemble to dress up the hall. The tables and stage were kept sweet, but simple and really denoted an evening of serene elegance.
