New Beginnings

I have been in the wedding industry for a while now, working mostly as a bridal consultant… but this takes the cake (pun intended). Asal and Sohraab were the most laid back and wonderful couple to start off this new venture of wedding photography. They had a traditional Persian wedding which was immersed in culture, symbolism and tradition. It was amazing to witness! They sat at a table filled with different objects carefully pieced together by their family members.

Watching the loving interaction of the couple showed the care they had for each other. Asal was constantly wiping lipstick marks off of Sohraab and fixing his hair when the wind blew it out of place. Sohraab was a champ and fixed Asal’s train so it could billow in the wind for a dramatic picture we wanted to capture. These little acts were really touching to see. I hope you enjoy a glimpse into their special day.

This was one of my favorite pieces on the table. The sweet candied fruit signify sweetness for the couples future.

During the ceremony the women in attendance help hold the veil and also grind sugar cones over the veil, again symbolizing sweetness for the couple.
