Brian and Najia set out to create a calm, romantic oasis in the middle of the forest at their Maryland wedding venue, Thorpewood. Surrounded by their family and loved ones, they wanted to come together and share a personal piece of their heritage and life within their ceremony. They combined their varying cultures, Brian being Jewish and Najia’s Pakistani roots, with a multicultural ceremony and  dress change for the reception. The bride wore a western style ball gown to start the day before changing into a stunning midnight blue Pakistani dress for the reception. We absolutely loved the henna designs on her hands, arms, and feet, and that their talented photographers at Procopio Photography were able to capture her henna ceremony before the wedding. After the ceremony they moved into the rustic lodge for a reception catered by Canapes. Each piece of the wedding, from the attire to the books in the décor, were carefully chosen by the couple to ensure that the wedding felt personal and touched with their spirit. Thank you to Procopio Photography for sharing today’s rustic Thorpewood wedding with us!

From the Bride: “We wanted an outdoor wedding that was that really spoke about us and it being very personal bringing the vibe and calmness that represents us. Combining our varying cultures and styles but more importantly making it a calm, romantic gathering of friends & family to celebrate our union.”

“With my husband being jewish and I being muslim we added touches of both to bring both of our cultures together. I wore a white dress and then changed into a Paki dress and the groomsmen who traditional suites with traditional paki scarfs. Each piece of the day, including almost all the music was hand picked.”

Favorite memories: “The vows itself, seeing the vision coming together, and the beauty of the space. We chose a wonderful setting in a pine forest sounded by friends & family with a 3 piece band playing music chosen directly by us in lieu of traditional music. Everything came together perfectly and it felt just like we could have hoped for.”
