The Liriodendron Mansion, a historical piece of architecture from the late eighteen hundreds was the perfect location for Nadiyah and Ahsif’s dreamy Pakistani wedding. The Liriodendron Mansion wedding venue offers a serene setting in the heart of Bel Air, Maryland and provides a great backdrop for couples looking for modern-luxury weddings in a historical fashion.
The venue has several impressive features including formal staircases, historical fireplaces, incredible landscapes, and a charming wisteria-covered terrace. The Liriodendron Mansion wedding venue is the perfect destination for any couple looking to tie the knot in a garden setting surrounded by beautiful landscapes and impressive architectural features.
Every wedding day has a story. Nadiyah and Ahsif’s story at Liriodendron Mansion was unique, creative, and elegant. It was easy to tell that tradition and family were important to them as several family members were involved in the wedding itself.
Much of their Pakistani wedding ceremony saw them sitting on an elegant sofa outside the mansion. Friends and family were gathered around, seated in chairs on the grass, while the ceremony took place. Nadiyah and Ahsif looked regal. Nadiyah especially, in her ornate Sharara dress, which matched the outside greenery so well.
They were all smiles though, especially as the ceremony came to a close. This continued as they were covered in flower petals on their way to their classic car for their first drive as bride and groom.
A big part of what made Nadiyah and Ahsif’s Liriodendron Mansion wedding stand out was the beautiful decorations and design. The gorgeous canopies of greenery along with the table settings, linens, flowers, and the chosen color theme set the scene for a wonderful intimate wedding and dinner.
There’s plenty to go over, but I’ll focus on Ann’s Garden, a local wedding florist in Bel Air, which created an impressive array of custom wedding florals throughout the venue that matched the beautiful tablescapes perfectly. She also designed a beautiful floral display at the entrance for this Liriodendron Mansion Pakistani wedding.
Everyone made this luxe wedding feel even more so. It was easy to tell Nadiyah and Ahsif had given a lot of thought to how they wanted their dreamy wedding to look. And they’d only sought out the best people to make that happen. It was a pleasure to help them make this wedding a special day for both of them.
When I shoot, I look for the moments and the shots that will narrate the story of their day, tailored specifically to them. While shooting this Liriodendron Mansion wedding for Nadiyah and Ahsif, I saw how much Pakistani tradition and family meant to them. So, I sought to capture that on camera.
This included the love and respect they showed their elders and the true joy they had for the children. This was true for them as well; I found small moments of them holding hands or helping one another throughout the day for their Liriodendron Mansion wedding.
They had a way of looking at ease while being classy at the same time. It was great to take that in and share it back with them. This is something I love to do for any of the couples I work with; and it’s something I hope I can help you with too.
