Save the date

This wedding was the perfect blend of traditional and modern. Though these may seem like conflicting styles, Mohammad and Aminah were able to beautifully pair them by bringing in elements from a formal wedding with modern touches. This lovely combination of contemporary and traditional was further carried into the wedding party’s outfits.

The bride wore a sleek and chic dress with a lace open back, complimented by a delicate yet dramatic veil that gracefully trailed on the floor. The groom chose to wear a navy suit accented by a playful striped bowtie. The perfect accompaniment to the couple’s attire was the traditional, champagne-colored lace gowns that the bridesmaids wore.

The Reception at Flora

For the reception, Flora became a verdant oasis complete with lush plants surrounding the room, white candles, and tables organically draped in a swath of airy white fabric. For a meaningful touch, the couple used olive branches on the tablescapes instead of centerpieces because Aminah and Mohammad met while planting olive trees. Each table also had a charcuterie board on it for guests to snack on before dinner.

The menu pulled from the couple’s heritage and featured a traditional Persian meal with kunafa instead of a wedding cake.

After dinner, this wedding’s lively and fun atmosphere continued with dancing, heartfelt speeches, and a special song that Mohammad performed for Aminah on his ukulele. Videos were another noteworthy addition to this reception. Aminah’s sister played a video montage of them growing up, and her father showed a video of him and the groom playfully wrestling on the day they met.

To further bring in elements of their culture, guests were given bags of zaatar and herb bowls as wedding favors. To end this incredible night, both the bride and groom threw a bouquet to the person they deemed to get married next.
