Mariam & Amaad’s Indian Pakistani fusion wedding at the luxury Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis was definitely one to remember! I loved working with them for their engagement party last summer which can be seen HERE. But in April 2021, they wanted to have some more fun and have a big wedding! Friday evening was their mehndi hennah party reception which took place at the Hyatt St. Louis by the Arch and can be seen HERE. I was so in love with Mariam & Amaad’s yellow and green vibrant outfits! Yet, they out did themselves on their actual wedding reception that took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis. Just take a look at the photos below!
Mariam & Amaad met in school and became quick friends. You can tell that they are truly loved by so many of their family & friends because everyone always had so many good things to say about them. These two welcomed be into their family for their wedding day and it was truly a pleasure!
The wedding reception was filled with beautiful florals that were purple, pink, white, and an arrange of other colors. You could literally smell the flowers as you walked into the wedding reception and it was truly amazing. Their wedding cake was a perfect white cake with splashes of color to match their decorations!
We began the day with beautiful wedding portraits of Amaad & Mariam in their hotel rooms getting ready. Mariam looked amazing and her hennah was flawless. We then had their first look and took photos near the stairs at the Four Seasons where there was a great view of the St. Louis Archway. We also took photos on their rooftop. After photos, it was time to get the party started!! Amaad made an amazing grand entrance into his reception by way of horse. This is known as the baraat which is a celebratory wedding procession for the groom that involves live music and dancing. It was so much fun!! I loved the live drumming and music.
After that, it was time for cocktail hour with friends and family mingling together. A grand entrance of the bride and groom was made into the ballroom where guests enjoyed speeches, a yummy dinner, dancing, as well as more snacks, and a fun photobooth for everyone to enjoy. This wedding was truly amazing and a dream to photograph.
