What was your favorite thing about this event?
Layla and Saman incorporated Persian traditions throughout their ceremony and reception. My favorite part about their ceremony was the “sofreh,” which was a table filled with beautiful fabric, mirrors, sugar, honey, fruits, and more, all of which had a special symbolism in the Persian culture. As part of the ceremony, Layla and Saman’s sister grinded sugar over them. At the reception, it was so fun to hear all of the Persian music and see a packed dance floor!
What was your favorite design element?
I really loved the chairs that Layla chose for the reception. We often see chiavari chairs at receptions and this was a nice change. The chameleon chairs were slightly different with clean lines and an elegant feel. If you’re looking for something to really change the look of the room, we would recommend looking into renting chair like these! I also loved the runners on the guest tables. It added some texture to the tables with a romantic, soft feel.
