Bazgha & Samir ~ Musical Instrument Museum & Bentley Projects Wedding ~ Phoenix, Arizona

What better place than a global Musical Instrument Museum to begin a cultural wedding celebration that focuses on music, family and lots of good food?  Bazgha and Samir commenced their traditional Pakistani wedding events in the gorgeous outdoor courtyard of the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, Arizona on a perfect evening in November 2015.  The much anticipated henna party featured colorful decor, henna painting and live action Pakistani barbecue stations with melt in your mouth cooking.  The guests gathered from all over the world to honor the happy couple in the bride’s home state of Arizona.  Bazgha, wanting a contemporary twist for her wedding reception, chose the very hip Bentley Projects in downtown Phoenix as her venue. The very chic atmosphere bestowed chandeliers gleaming down upon her guest dining experience, which was fueled by cultural meals that are only reserved for the finest of celebrations.  The expression on the bride’s face during the traditional bridal farewell, where we normally see a lot of tears, was truly one of gratefulness to her mom, who was instrumental in ensuring that all of the guests were happy and well fed and that her daughter’s dream wedding had come true.  Images by Sameer Soorma
