Finally, the last segment from our wedding – the reception day!
As you know, I absolutely adore the colour purple. I wish I could be surrounded by the colour purple all the time. The Valima was my last day to incorporate purple (I had elements of purple in my dress on each day) and I wanted to go all out. I had always envisioned my reception dress to include both silver and purple and I couldn’t have been happier with my dress.
My makeup for this day was a stark contrast to the wedding day. I wanted to keep everything light and natural. Instead of a dark lipstick, I opted for a neutral tone with a touch of pink.
Decor and Details
The most exciting aspect of the valima, besides the colours, was the decor. I had wanted a water stage – yes, a stage that was made entirely of water!
Centrepieces, table setting, wall lights and boutonnieres

Cake and Food
After extensive searching, Nouman and I decided to go to Sunnyside Pavilion for our photoshoot. It was surrounded by water and also had some interesting fountain/garden areas to work with.
Walking to our location
Our love, shoes! Yes, I not only walked through grass but also sand. Anything for a good picture!
I specifically asked for this shot so I could get a picture of my train

So, apparently I never get this hand sign right. I’m working on it guys.
Well, you have now seen my entire wedding – let me know what you think! I added some decor pictures to my shaadi post so be sure to go back and check that out. You can also have a look at Our Mehendi.
Have a great weekend! I have to attend two bridal showers on the same day. One is the same theme as mine so I’m excited to see their take. Follow me on instagram or Twitter to stay updated on my weekend happenings!
