Elegant Affairs dazzled the ballroom with pink and green decor and lighting, tying the whole ballroom together. They featured lighting provided by centerpiece lanterns with pink votives, and a pink bangle cart, where guest could pick up their very own bangle.
The bride wore a beautiful and elegant dark green lehenga and incorporated intricate details of the New York City skyline on the palm of her hands in henna.
. The bride and groom entered under a hanging floral arch that was created by the bride’s father, and enjoyed the view of the performances from an elegant old school styled swing. The night continued with fun skits and dances performed by the bride and groom’s friends and family, and delicious Indian catering. After the friends and family were finished with their performances, the bride and groom put on a special surprise performance for all their guest.
On Saturday the celebration of Farah and Hamid continued with the wedding ceremony and reception. The nikkah ceremony was held on the lush sprawling grounds, where Elegant Affairs constructed an elegant floral arch with a glimmering crystal chandelier incorporating the romantic and blush tones.
The attention was not lost in the details throughout the entire event. Each seat at the ceremony had a sweet on it, signifying a sweet beginning for the bride and groom. The name cards were precisely placed on top of keys, and each table number represented one of the bride and groom’s favorite spots to eat.
