I love being a part of cultured weddings. Ghazal has Persian roots, and wanted to mix some her family's traditions into their ceremony. The backdrop for the ceremony takes place in a specially decorated area with flowers and a beautiful and elaborately decorated spread on the floor called "Sofreh-ye Aghd". Traditionally Sofreh-ye Aghd is set on the floor facing east, the direction of sunrise (light). Consequently when bride and bridegroom are seated at the head of Sofreh-ye Aghd they will be facing "The Light".
Persians love to dance, we had so much fun documenting the event!! From the toasts, to the dancing, you can just tell how much family meant to this couple. Thanks to Ghazal and Ben for letting us be a part of their big day!
