Laurel and Ashraf were wed in an intimate destination wedding earlier this year, but decided to share in their celebration with family and friends during a fabulous wedding celebration back where Ashraf grew up, here in Hampton Roads. Imagine all of the fun of a wedding with none of the stress from the ceremonial elements, and that's exactly what this fun event at Elegant Affairs in Norfolk, VA was all about.
Growing up in a tight-knit community of Indian families, this wedding party was truly a reflection of Ashraf's heritage with many guests clad in vibrant saris and bandhgalas and a seemingly endless array of Indian dishes scenting the air with delicious aromas. Guests sipped tall glasses of cool mango lassi and later enjoyed slices of a spectacular mad hatter themed cake (a nod to Laurel's love of Alice in Wonderland).
Laurel and Ashraf - thank you so much for having me join you for your special day. You guys were such a joy to work with and I wish you years of love and happiness!
