Blush Engagement Party Featured on Green Wedding Shoes

We’re excited to see this blush engagement party featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

We’ve heard of many weddings forced to pivot or postpone due to Covid-19. But we don’t always think of the other pre-wedding celebrations that have been sacrificed or majorly adjusted as well. Originally, Zahra + Ali were slated to have a modern soirée downtown Milwaukee, but made a big switch to an engagement party at home.

The bride-to-be shares her inspiration for the day: Much of the inspiration for the engagement party comes from my Kashmiri-American identity. Like my identity, I knew I wanted the design concepts to be multifaceted and unique. In Srinagar, Kashmir, our ‘pink drink’ exists in the form of nuun chai, a salty pink tea that is rich in flavor. Knowing we would serve it to guests as tradition, I opted to maintain a coordinating soft-pink palette, accompanied by a whimsical fusion of textures. Finally, I have always loved the cloud-like appearance of hand-dyed baby’s breath, and thought that it would provide a fitting landscape for the occasion.

With Zahra’s vision of modern pink elegance in mind, this ceremony ‘altar’ was grand in nature. The arch is made up of 80+ bundles of sprayed baby’s breath. Erika from Flowers For Dreams hand-sprayed each bundle with different shades of pink. The elegant seating is rented from Chance Productions.
