The pearls! Pearls are a theme throughout! The vision was deep red, gold, and pearls 🙂

My beautiful bridal party! Remember their saris? I got them on Gerrard Street! Didn’t they turn out wonderfully? You can read about my bridal party’s saris here:

Enter into the hall…the receiving table:
The hall, itself:
The beautiful work of Amna Rather of Lemon Truffle Designs! My vision was classy; ornate; elegant; timeless…and to me nothing is more classic than red roses and pearls. So, naturally, I wanted my centre pieces to be red roses and candelabras with pearl strands:
My favours (I donated to the Canadian Cancer Society in honour of my dad who passed away from cancer; they sent me bookmarks and I had them printed with the wedding programme.) You can read about that here!
The stage, note the pearl strands in between the fabrics!

The filigree pen I bought just for this very moment, lol! You can read about that here:
The Cake! (Oh, is there ever a story behind this… later!) Note the cake knife that I ordered from Etsy especially for this! (You can read more on that here!)
“We’re marrrried!” 🙂
The “dood palai” (custom where your sister feeds the groom a glass of milk…and he gives her money, obvi) Note the special dood palai glass with small roses on it that I brought back from Lahore to match my theme 😀
