Saima+Imran:Part 1…Saima’s Mayoun || Frisco, TX Wedding Photography

*warning this post contains TONS of photos!*
This post is from day one of Saima and Imran’s 5-day wedding extravaganza that I shot a couple of weeks ago. I had such a hard time going through and narrowing it down to a “reasonable” number of images!  So these are some of my faves from the first day of events.

Today’s event is Saima’s mayoun, it was comprised mostly of her immediate family and close friends.   Everything was decorated beautifully, there was delicious (and of course, spicy!)  food and of course the beautiful dancing.  It was so funny, because when I arrived it was like catching up with old friends again, not at all like I was at work.  Her family is so completely sweet and her friends are equally awesome!  I just felt so at home and at ease, I could not have asked for anything more!  I cannot wait to post the other pictures for all the other events…so stay tuned this week to see the rest!

Just a few of some of the gorgeous details….sparkles, sparkles everywhere!  And all of the the colors were just stunning.details1
