The Grand Lady Wedding – Hedieh & Matt – Persian Ceremony

The Grand Lady Wedding

The Grand Lady Wedding – Hedieh & Matt had the most beautiful day for their Persian ceremony at The Grand Lady!  I love all of the ceremonial elements of a Persian wedding, especially the beautifully adorned Sofreh.

One element includes a scarf being held over the bride and groom’s heads while two cones of hardened sugar are softly ground together above the couple to shower them in sweetness known as Kaleh Ghand. And then the Honey Exchange, when the bride and groom dip their pinky fingers in honey and feed it to each other to symbolize starting the marriage with sweetness. Love it!

The Grand Lady floral fields made for such a beautiful location for portrait photos!  Guests enjoyed cocktails in the courtyard of The Grand Lady majestic historic mansion before heading inside the beautifully appointed reception hall for dinner and dancing.   Loving family and friends helped send the newlyweds off in style with a sparkler departure!

Congratulations, Hedieh & Matt!

PS Bonus points to Hedieh’s bridesmaids for the awesome reaction to their first look of Hedieh in her dress!
