Both Alyssa and Fayaz come from Indian and Muslim backgrounds, but their different branches of Islam did not stop them from coming together and having a beautiful wedding celebration that combined their cultural and religious traditions. They had three days of wedding events, including a Sangeet, an Ismaili Nikkah at the Scarborough Jamaatkhana, and finally, the Ishnasheri Nikkah and wedding reception combined at Deer Creek. It was a stunning celebration filled with love, joy, and unforgettable moments captured by the talented lens of Photography by Azra.
