Weddings that celebrate vibrant fusion 

Weddings are naturally all about fusion. A coming together of two lives, two families, and two cultures. Afghanistan meets Syria, Pakistan meets Germany, Iran meets Egypt. Sound complex? It doesn't have to be. You've got a pro in your corner who specializes in Middle Eastern and South Asian multicultural weddings. Sound specific? It is, but so are you. And you need a planner who gets that. 

"Khatera is your go-to expert for all things wedding and parties. A bonus for me was that she understood mine and my husband's culture! So hard to find someone who know e the ins and outs of the Afghan and Pakistani cultures. Tehre were so many tradition s during the wedding that yo uneed someone to cue everhything. That's exactly what she did! " - Roya

“Khatera basically became a surrogate mom — she was so genuinely invested in our wedding day that she felt like family. I was at ease knowing she had everything taken care of. Khatera’s thoughtfulness, organization, and creativity really made our wedding amazing.” 

— Amelia Grubb

New world chic meets old world roots 

Sure, my tendency to overcommunicate, my super organized personality, and years of experience and training in event management all come in handy. But what really sets me apart from the rest of the wedding planning crowd is that I get you. 

 

From my family immigrating to the US when I was a toddler to memories of my grandmother reciting Farsi poetry as we ate together, my Afghan heritage is woven deep into my identity. An identity I’ve merged with modern American culture. I’ve learned to recognize the possibilities in combining two diverse backgrounds, the magic in blending traditional with contemporary, and the beauty in fusion. And lover, your roots are a beauty worth celebrating.
