naureen & muhammad: shaadi

naureen and muhammad's wedding day was as sunny and gorgeous a spring day as anyone could have hoped for - i have to say my favorite part of the day was when we hopped over to centennial park in columbia to take some outdoor portraits before the wedding started. a favorite haunt of mine from when i lived in columbia, as well as a favorite of naureen's - she told me how she used to sit in the picnic balcony over the water and read for hours - it was plain to see how happy she was there.naureen dazzled in her red-and-gold lehnga, with makeup impeccably applied by the amazing sanober, and muhammad was resplendent in a cream sherwani with elements echoing naureen's dress. the love and joy of both families was infectious -especially during the tearful speeches given by naureen's two loving brothers (i don't think there was a dry eye in the room - mine certainly weren't!). and the cupcakes - check out the spread below! - were an absolute win, especially if one was to judge by the number of tiny finger-dips left in the icing of the kid-level cupcakes! many thanks again to zoshia minto again for her help in shooting the wedding. naureen, it was such an honor to be a part of all this with you, and i pray that the love, comfort and happiness i saw between you and muhammad on your wedding day continue to grow stronger every day for the rest of your lives together.
