Muslim Jewish Wedding in New York

Monis Zahira Alam and Corey Miles Burr

WEDDING: Muslim and Jewish  |  LOCATION: New York

Muslim and Jewish traditions blend beautifully at Monis and Corey’s wedding at New York Botanical Gardens. “Our approach was to celebrate every tradition without compromising on any special moments,” Monis tells Zardozi.  “Our goal was to show the best of our wedding traditions to all our guests without sacrificing the integrity of each tradition. We didn’t want it to feel “fusion,” but rather all things together at once. It was like planning two weddings at once!”

“The surprises we planned for each other! I brought Pakistani/Indian Pop Band JOSH to play at our Mehndi and Corey surprised me with Jewish Bottle Dancers at the Reception. So fun and neither one of us had a clue!”

“If you treat each point of disagreement as an opportunity to learn more about your partner then you’ll always come out on top together.”
