Sumaiya + Rifat’s Indian Wedding Reception


If ever there was a magical tale of true love and a fairy tale ending, it would be Sumaiya and Rifat’s love story.  Spending any amount of time with this couple gives you a glimpse at true romance.  These are two people who love each other with every once of energy and creativity they have.  Rifat popped the question with an over-the-top surprise flash mob engagement proposal down Calgary’s bustling Stephen Ave – how’s that for starters?  For their engagement session they had the vision of drinking high-tea, nibbling on cupcakes and dancing in each others arms on the edge of a mountain.  And they did it.  Then there’s the guitar Sumaiya surprised Rifat with just before the reception, and the wonderful dance Rifat performed for his bride later that night.  It’s a love language that lived out loud and beautiful to witness.

Sumaiya & Rifat, what a privilege it has been to experience your love and those who love you enormously.  It’s a testament to the quality of people you are by hearing the words of praise by those you surround yourselves with.  We look forward to seeing more of your crazy and romantic adventures ahead!
