Megha and Yafeez had their traditional Indian wedding at the Sheraton in Overland Park. Originally, there were supposed to be around 400 guests. Megha and Yafeez managed to slash their guest list down to 90 so they could keep loved ones safe. The Sheraton provided the perfect space for social distancing. Megha and Yafeez made it very clear that the guests were required to wear masks, aside from eating and drinking. Guests were sat by household, and distanced from others. So this wedding was the best effort I’ve seen at keeping covid policies during a wedding.
The weather was absolutely beautiful, which made the baraat even more fun. Yafeez is a car man, so it made perfect sense that some muscle cars made an appearance on his wedding day. If the pose with his groomsmen in front of the Mustang doesn’t remind you of a homemade mixtape cover, I don’t know what would.
The ballroom at The Sheraton was the perfect space for a traditional Indian wedding. Especially during a pandemic. If you’re looking for a venue that has your back on covid precautions, definitely look into The Sheraton.
My favorite part of the day would have to be the outfit change. I am all for a second outfit at weddings. Why not feel two times as glamorous on your wedding day? Megha wore a custom saree from Leharr Collections for the ceremony. It weighs quite a bit and sits heavily on the hips, thus the desire for an outfit change. For the reception, Megha changed into a gorgeous, beaded white dress. Yafeez changed from his traditional Sherwani to a classic black tux. The addition of a second outfit just makes me so excited!
