This real wedding is Mariyam Azam and Omer Ali Khan in San Francisco and Sacramento, California. Enjoy!
Our nikah ceremony and reception took place a year before our walimah, at Mehran Banquet Hall & Restaurant in Pittsburg, CA. Sabah Azam Photography photographed the event and also did a wedding photoshoot for us at our alma mater, UC Berkeley, a year later.
The cake was catered from an East Bay baker who has since retired, Sue Faina. The venue was decorated by Farzana and Nadeem Mohammed of Milaap Events. My makeup artist for this event was Farhana Baig, and for the photoshoot was Faizah Mullah.
Our rukhsati event, a year later, took place at Chandni in Fremont, CA. All food and decoration was included in the venue package. Faizah Mullah was my makeup artist and Sabah Azam Photography photographed the event.
