Our Story

Helping you savor life's sweetest moments. For all of your wedding and event needs: planning, stage decor, florals, linens, custom cakes, desserts, and more! Established in 2001. Hailing from entrepreneurial families, Hanadi and Jamaal had always dreamed of owning their own business. Jamaal's mother, a master at baking delicious Mediterranean treats, graciously shared her secret family recipes with the two, and Hanadi and Jamaal got to work in the kitchen. While brainstorming names for their new venture, Hanadi and Jamaal combined their last names, Asad and Ali, to form "Asali." They quickly discovered that Asali is also the word for "sweets" and "honey" in both Arabic and Persian. The couple took this happy coincidence as a sign of good luck and, seeing an opportunity to seize their dream, Asali Desserts was officially founded in 2001. Since then, Asali has expanded to include specialty cakes and event services, providing their services and sweets to countless events of all sizes throughout the Triangle. Hanadi and Jamaal are proud N.C. State graduates. (Go Pack!) They live with their five beautiful children near downtown Apex, North Carolina.

One of our favorite parts about our work is when we get to document different cultures and learn their traditions!

We got to do just that when we traveled to Cary, North Carolina to document the Egyptian Wedding of Ruann & Aly! It was an absolute pleasure being a part of the festive Wedding Reception!

I went to the International Festival in Raeigh. As usual, lots to see and lots of good food. The one place I look for is Asali. They have the best goodies around. The baklava is so good, words fail me, and you know how I love to talk!!
Hanadi and Jamaal are the nicest people to deal with. The only thing nicer are their goodies!!
Itโ€™s rude to talk with my mouth full, so itโ€™s a good thing Iโ€™m typing! Needless to say dessert came before dinner today. I have never tasted such buttery-sweet perfection in baklava. Thank you Asali for treats that hit the spot!

Looking for some fun today??? Swing by Mordecai Historic Park between 2-5pm for some live music by the Chit Nasty Band, food by Las Gringas Food truck, desserts by Asali Events & Specialty Desserts, bouncy house, giant Jenga, corn hole, face painting, and much more!!!
