Engaged! | Gulmina & Mansoor

As the first step in their engagement, Gulmina and Mansoor hosted the meeting of their respective families at Gulmina's family residence in Staten Island. Both Pakistani, they celebrated with the age old traditions of family gift giving and sitting on a swing where guests fed them sweet treats. 

This was a true honor to document as these traditions are thousands of years old and though this was just the first of many festive parties for Gulmina and Mansoor, it was so elaborate and thoughtfully designed. 

Congrtulations Gulmina and Mansoor on your engagement and the adventure which lies ahead.

  2. Totally my pleasure Gulmina --- I love to shoot people who are beautiful on the inside out! XOXO Ilene
