It seems like yesterday when I photographed Dustin and Maria’s engagement photos! Time flies indeed, and now I am excited to share their wedding with you! Maria is Pakistani, and Dustin is from Alabama. To celebrate Maria’s family’s culture, it was a beautiful harmony of cultures coming together for this Pakistani fusion wedding with Dustin and Maria! This extravagant gala was made up of two days of celebration. The first night was the Mehndi celebration at Maria’s parents’ home. Lots of festivities ; a henna artist, Indian food, special dances, good times indeed! I photographed the Mehndi, and then the big day the next day.
