Johanna and Kamran wanted their day to truly represent them, their life together, their traditions, their style and their loves. There was so much thought put into every detail, everything had purpose, so I welcomed the challenge of making everything look cohesive.
Having their wedding at Saltwater Farms Vineyard, a beautifully renovated airport hanger, we included bi-planes into the favors and used them as table numbers. Keeping with the retro- vintage theme, which was certainly the couple’s vibe, old hankies adorned the bouquets and centerpieces, eclectic jadeite containers were the focal point of the guest tables, and an old typewriter was used as the guest book. Wanting the flowers to be very bright and have an effortless feeling, we used hand picked garden flowers with accents of natural elements such as succulents and willow! The bright retro style also came into play with their cake, which was the perfect replica of them and their dog, Arthur! Oh yeah…the Ring Bearer, A.K.A, Arthur had his own limo that dropped him up and picked him up…it was the cutest thing I ever saw! Of course, I decorated his collar so he could look as dapper as his parents!
It was wonderful to see them being faithful to Kamran’s Persian traditions during the ceremony. The Sofreh table various housed organic elements that signified certain things. For instance, there was a bowl of eggs to help with fertility. My favorite was the honey that they sensually fed to each other to signify that there marriage and love may always be sweet.
Johanna and Kamran’s photographer is Kelly Prizel Photography, but I also asked my friend and professional photographer Kiva from Annandale Photography take detail shots for me since I did not want to miss a thing! They both did an amazing job! See for yourself……
