Kulsoom and Safwan {Wedding Celebration}

Kulsoom and Safwan had the most incredible wedding celebration at their family’s mosque, Cascade and Sleepy Hollow. We traveled all over Connecticut throughout their wedding weekend to celebrate their love for each other.  Kulsoom and Safwan’s wedding photography included a sentimental ceremony at their family’s mosque, a gorgeous family farm, a state park and the amazing Cascade ballroom.  Brian and I were honored to spend the weekend with Safwan, Kulsoom, and their beautiful and kind family and friends.  Kulsoom and Safwan were surrounded by so much love, laughter and friendship. Their weekend wedding celebration was one we are so honored to have been a part of.

On the first day, we met Kulsoom and Safwan at the Mosque where their families worship together. Both Safwan and Kulsoom are active members of their mosque. Look at Kulsoom’s gorgeous henna. Can you find Safwan’s name?
