Mimi Ansari met her prince charming Biz Nabily in a story of Shakespearean complexity. Biz first caught sight of MiMi at a masquerade ball. Her eyes captivated him, though she was wearing a mask. Nearly two years later, Biz proposed in an elaborate ceremony at the Willard. “He has been the puzzle piece I have been missing my entire life,” says MiMi.
For her bridal shower at Trump National Golf Club, MiMi decided to go with a pastel-themed tea party in which her maid-of-honor sister Giselle, her family, and her friends all wore proper hats and then competed in a playful toilet-paper dress making contest. The spread included small bites like sliced tarragon spiced chicken with cantaloupe and cucumber tea sandwiches and beef sliders on onion brioche, and along with a range of pink and pastel-hued sweets (Ladurée chocolates were plentiful!) Also at the bridal shower was the original sign Biz had used to propose, spelling out her name in lights. Images below from Alexandra Friendly Photography.
