The Ali's: An Atlanta Affair

Hisham and I (Shaquia) met in Atlanta as graduate students at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Our wedding was held on Sunday, September 30, 2018 in Piedmont Park at the Greystone building. As graduate students it was important to us to have a beautiful and budget-friendly wedding. Lucky for us, we're both engineering Ph.D. candidates and were able to pull off many time intensive DIY projects include key wedding elements such as our ceremony arbor, cake stand, and of! We decided on the classic color palette of blush, burgundy, green, and gold...just because it always looks so beautiful when photographed together. FiftyFlowers made it so easy to select the appropriate flowers based on color and budget. It was particularly awesome to come across the blush and burgundy flower pack. The garden roses from this pack were by far the stand out components of our floral features. At the last minute we were notified by FiftyFlowers that a component (carnations) of our order was no longer available, but we received replacements that sufficiently substituted what we were lacking. The flowers were safely packaged, arrived on time (Thursday), and remained beautiful throughout our Sunday wedding. I remember staying up until the wee hours of the morning of my wedding making sure everything was just as I wanted. The quality of the flowers we received made the job much easier than it would have been otherwise. The flowers really contributed to the beauty of that day and the memories forever sealed in our photos.
