Ahh, Raquib & Rezwana! I had such an amazing time photographing Raquib & Rezwana’s gorgeous walima wedding reception that took place at the Overland Park Marriott! Rezwana, originally from Ottawa Ontario, and Raquib met at a wedding in Kansas City about 5 years ago, and ever since then, it’s history! One thing that attracted Raquib to Rezwana is how caring and empathetic she is towards others, especially those with special needs.
On this 100 degree fahrenheit hot summer day, we headed outside of the Mariott to take a few bride and groom portraits. The guests arrived and enjoyed some appetizers prior to the grand entrance of the bride and groom. The parents and family of the lovely bride and groom were such an important part of their wedding day and they had family from all over the world travel to attend their special day! Some of their best friends entertained the wedding guests with fun dance performances which wowed the crowd! The bride and groom played a fun “shoe game” on stage where they took off their shoes and the MC asked them questions about each other to see who knew each other best. Well, it looks like they both know each other pretty well and they are both sweet at heart! Overall, it was an amazing evening to remember and I believe, one of my favorite weddings to photograph!
Raquib & Rezwana will be headed to Europe and the Maldives for their honeymoon and I am totally jealous! Not only are these two love birds absolutely gorgeous, they had such kind hearts and it was an honor to photograph them! Here are a few sneak peeks from their wedding.
