Emerald across cultures may symbolize many things like love, purity, and growth. In Afghan culture in particular, brides wear green as their official outfit prior to wearing the white dress.  The green dresses aren’t emphasized enough, and this allowed Event Planner Khatera of Events by Khatera to show the beauty and awareness to those who don’t know how emerald can be so captivating.  The bride to be is wearing a green and gold pantsuit ensemble with a matching emerald flowing veil and gold grown. How royal?!

This shoot also has decor, floral, and stationery included to show people how to coordinate cultural with western elements.  This styled shoot has an Autumn and Winter look to it, with a bit of moody backdrop.
