Anum and Eihab's wedding was our very last of 2011, and it was definitely an amazing one. I've been dying to show you this one! From all the blogging I've been doing over the past several years, I actually really enjoy writing and telling little stories and details from the day. Well, do you I have a story for you! Eihab bought a 1963 gold Thunderbird on Ebay from the original owner. It only had 29000 miles on it, and he drove to and from Colorado to pick it up all in one weekend. He even still had the original manual which a picture of a couple perfectly posed next to the car! We of course recreated that same pose and you'll see that and the picture of the manual below. Seriously, one of the coolest things ever, I guess it's the small things in life that make me the happiest:-) Before the celebration began, we setup their first look in this long walkway surrounded by palm trees and greenery. Anum = stunning, Eihab = handsome! We had a lot of time with just the 2 of them to get some amazing photos beforehand and really put our creativity to work with some dramatic lighting. The reception decor was all gold textured linens with deep red accents, I love the crystal frosted sweets table. Anum created the monogram that was on their cake. One of their traditions is for one of the girls to steal the groom's shoes and he has to bargain with the girls to get it back. The girls got a little suprise when their agreed upon amount arrived all in pennies! It was a true honor to capture and be a part of. Congrats Anum + Eihab!! xoxoxo
Anum and Eihab's wedding celebration started out with the Mehndi party. You could feel the excitement when Eihab and his family entered, followed by Anum and her family. The girls prepared some amazing dances for everyone to enjoy. There were even two little aspiring dancers there:-) Pakistani weddings are one of my favorite types of weddings to capture, I love the goregous colorful attire, henna, delicious food, and dancing. It's all about celebrating with friends and family. Wait until you see their wedding the following day...stunning! More sneak peeks to come tomorrow!
