Estate Banquet Hall
With so many couples rescheduling their wedding to next year, I was surprised a few new ones popped up to take their place. This wedding was originally expected to happen in 2022, However, with so many venues like Estate Banquet Hall offering discounts in a desperate attempt to stay open, they decided to bump it up. Coronavirus seems to be the thing that is dominating all the conversations lately and rightfully so. It is impacting our lives in almost every way possible. As a wedding photographer, I am seeing a massive impact on the wedding industry and how it is impacting couples getting married.
This particular couple found me a couple weeks before the big day when they realized it was possible for the event to even happen. They had a traditional Muslim wedding. This Multi Day event included a Haldi Ceremony and this Nikkah Ceremony. I captured the ceremonies for both days. However since they were both smaller events, there was no highlight reel.
Estate Banquet Hall was one of the few that were still open in the area. The couple happened to have a close family member who as super talented in wedding decor and planning. So this simple space was completely decked out for the event. Despite being a Covid restricted event, it felt like a proper wedding.
The Nikkah ceremony was held in the main room at Estate Banquet Hall and included all the traditional elements. Once the ceremony concluded, the couple exchanged rings, gifts, and took part in family photos. At this time during the pandemic, dancing was still allowed as long as masks were worn on the dance floor. Which worked out really well as the dancing plays a huge part with the Muslim culture.
Once the major events were completed, the couple disappeared for some photos of just them. And my services concluded for the night.
