Pink tea party style wedding: Salma + Ziyaad

Categories   Real Weddings

Happy Monday, readers! We’ve got a lovely bunch of photos for you today from Salma & Ziyaad (Zee)’s quaint tea party-themed wedding. It’s romantic, cozy and feminine (lots of pink!) with loads of DIY and homemade touches. Of course, no tea party is complete without baked goods, and honestly, the desserts in this alone are enough to put us over the edge.

Let’s begin!

These gorgeous invites were hand-stitched, water colored and stamped by Mom & younger sister.

Few things in life are more whimsical than a rope swing. And how stunning does Salma look? Love all those fabulous accessories – the jeweled sandals, fabric flower in the hair (made by the bride’s sister), ah, so pretty.

The postcards hanging in the window are a simple yet brilliant addition, guests “mailed” their notes to the couple using a wooden letterbox (made by dad) in lieu of a guestbook. That’s a cute idea right there.

The tabletop details are amazing – soda pop escort cards inspired by our diy tutorial, glass bottles wrapped in paper doilies, twine and ribbon. Never underestimate the power of a single carnation!

Here come the desserts.  Macaroons, mini-cakes, and more…Salma & Zee are major foodies &  sent guests home with a unique favor – a recipe book filled with their faves.

A seriously beautiful wedding for a seriously beautiful couple. Congratulations, Salma & Zee!

One of the most beautiful weddings ever! That dress is stunning. Us Australians have such a great aesthetic :-) Congratulations to you both!

Alison on Sep 21, 2010

This is so beautiful. Have any idea where they found the groom's corsage (or if it was a DIY?)? The whole attire for both is just lovely!

Khadija on Sep 21, 2010

Salaam, congratulations! Beautiful wedding... Loved it... xoxo

Jessica :: Delicatessen on Sep 21, 2010

I just adore her gown! How sweet and romantic!

Sha on Sep 21, 2010

Alison: the groom's corsage was a wedding gift from the designer who made the bridal gown! His name is George Wu and his site is . If you look closely you'll see it matches the lace flowers on the gown ;)

rachel thomas on Sep 22, 2010

george wu rocks, her gown is GORGEOUS!

Lauren on Sep 22, 2010

Absolutely Stunning! I love the sandals they are gorgeous! Mind my asking where they're from or where I could find a pair?

Christina (plus) Nathan on Sep 22, 2010

Wow, the tones are stunning in these photos, :)

Lent Ford on Sep 22, 2010

They're such a cute couple! I simply love how her dress is conservative but it fits her like a glove. It looks like a semi formal attire but it's actually her wedding dress!!

candice k on Sep 23, 2010

her dress is so refreshingly beautiful.

courtlynn on Sep 23, 2010

I adore Jonas's work! Every image was breathtaking.

Salma on Sep 24, 2010

A big thank you to 100layer cake for featuring our wedding and thanks to all for your lovely comments :) Lauren - the sandals are by Giuseppe Zanotti and were a wedding gift from my shoe-obsessed sister :) Not sure if the same ones are still around, but he tends to do a lot of jeweled sandals and heels so you'd probably be able to find a similar pair online or at a local designer shoe store.

Ladybird on Sep 25, 2010

Absolutely stunning! Congrats to the happy couple, and well done to everyone involved in putting such a lovely event together! :)

Jessica @ Jessiker Bakes on Sep 29, 2010

I love how this wedding screams cozy! Love love love

Sam Obeid on Oct 28, 2010

Everywhere I go Jonas is there. At least he never disapoints!

Stella Photography on Feb 9, 2011

Congratulation! Very nice couple, They look so happy in those professional photos. Thanks for sharing!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the best in its field. Excellent blog!
