Every wedding is an expression of the values, personality traits, and cultural traditions that the couple brings to their new life together. No matter the style of the wedding, flowers can help express the couple’s style, making the ceremony feel special and the reception feel festive.
Dr. Sobia Mirza is Muslim, but she and her husband Alex’s ceremony wasn’t the most traditional nikah. Because of the pandemic, the couple opted to invite their friends and family via Zoom to a backyard celebration that was low-fuss but high-tech. They hired the virtual wedding coordinators at Wedfuly to broadcast their nuptials to friends and family from New York to Pakistan and brought in the Poppy team to transform their backyard for the day.
Soft coral and white flowers brought elegance and romance to the space, with hanging garlands, an eye-catching bouquet, and coordinating arrangements on the table and cake. The result was a magical picture for both the virtual audience and the couple’s handful of in-person loved ones.
Because it wasn’t safe for out-of-town guests to travel, the wedding party pre-recorded videos of their “entrances” to play during the ceremony. Since Sobia couldn’t be with her bridesmaids, she decided to send the celebration to them. She ordered Poppy At Home kits for each member of her bridal party, allowing them to recreate the festivities by arranging fresh flowers in their own homes. Sobia and Alex’s unique touches were a beautiful expression of their love for each other and for their friends and family, near and far.
