We absolutely love this outdoor wedding that blends traditional Persian customs and classical western wedding themes, it seems like a page out of a storybook. The decor and details are absolutely impeccable, but we´d have to say that our favorite (if we´d have to choose), is the radiant romance between Azadeh and Brian – it´s so strong and palpable, they are practically glowing with happiness.
From the bride: Our wedding was nothing short of magical! Brian and I wanted a wedding that combined tradition and culture with all the romantic elements, creating an elaborate look. We wanted something different from other events. We wanted our guests to remember this trip for years to come. Our wedding photographer Svetlana Frolova from Svetlana Photography was extremely friendly and understood what we wanted. She took the time to answer all of our questions and worked with us on what type of pictures we wanted. The quality of our pictures were beautiful and she captured some great moments of the ceremony and reception. Svetlana is fantastic! I also have to say that we were so happy with everything in our wedding and none of this would have been possible without the help of my AMAZING wedding planner, Shelley Gay from !
Who designed your dress?
Azadeh: My dress is by Vera Wang.
Where did you get married?
Azadeh: Our wedding was held at a private residence in Austin, Texas called Villa de Vistas. We chose this venue for its beautiful colors and stylish and chic decor. The overall theme of our wedding was gold, blush, champagne and ivory with LOTS of crystals. We had the traditional Persian ceremony with the Sofreh Aghd. My family worked on the details and they were able to design it exactly as I expected! It had a color combination of gold, blush & silver. The gold Chiavari chairs made the color combination come together perfectly.
Who was in charge of decor?
Azadeh: We had the honor of having Carrie Beamer and her team at Flora Fetish for our wedding. We were absolutely thrilled with the results. Carrie is so creative and the combination of the bold, confident hydrangeas, garden roses, peonies and the soft unexpected touch of the baby’s breath were exactly what I had envisioned … just better!!!!!
