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.
Cheers Z + A! We’re toasting churros in honor of this pink celebration, and wishing you all the best in wedding planning!
