MISHAL CAZMI and SAMIR MOHAMMED OCTOBER 21 & 22, 2016
FROM MISHAL: We had two venues—the Aga Khan Museum for the ceremony and Archeo in the Distillery District for the reception. The Aga Khan Museum is so elegant and majestic it didn’t require a lot of decoration. Because the reception colours were soft and pretty, I wanted the ceremony to have a punch of bright hues. They also popped against the white. I wanted the reception to be romantic and intimate with roses and candles everywhere so it almost looked like a floating garden from afar. The colours we chose were peachy-pink and gold. Everything was done in those shades, including the stationery, flowers, my wedding shoes and the custom Adidas sneakers I changed into on the dance floor. The decor at Archeo was tied together by the insanely beautiful floral installation created by Ashley Plainos at Ashton Creative. Her work looked like a hanging garden right in the middle of our intimate setting—the guests couldn’t stop talking about it! We wanted the wedding to be a blend of our cultures. Instead of a regular dessert table, we created a table filled with Indian sweets of all kinds, and let guests fill their favour boxes before they left for the night. The cake followed a similar theme—the two-tiered cake had a roseflavoured tier filled with raspberry preserves and a chai-tea layer filled with brown-sugar buttercream. Having the violinist play during our entrance at the reception and during the first dance was something I’ll never forget. We chose “Halo” by Beyoncé as our wedding song. I’d heard the most beautiful, spine-tingling violin rendition of it and knew the violinist would do it justice. The minute he played it on the dance floor, it was pure magic.
