Happy Real Wedding Thursday!

We are pleased to introduce the marriage of Jennifer & Omeed from Pleasanton, CA

A wedding mixed with cultural traditions

What was your highlight of the day?
There were soooo many highlights and special moments throughout our very special day! We had a blended wedding that included American and Persian traditions. For the Persian ceremony Omeed's beautiful mom Shiva helped us make our Sofreh Aghd, which is a spread filled with lovely and symbolic items like fruit, honey, a mirror, decorative eggs, and nuts. Our ceremony was officiated by Lauren VanHam, an interfaith minister from Berkeley, CA. She delivered a very personal, thoughtful, lovely ceremony we couldn't have been happier with.

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?
Throughout the entire wedding planning process we received so much love and support from our families. If I could offer any piece of advice to future brides and grooms it would be to allow your families to be part of the process. I believe it is selfish and short sighted to go through the wedding and marrying process with the commonly held belief that it is "the bride's day." A wedding can be so much more than just a day dedicated to one person. It is also important to be secure with the bride/groom's vision of their wedding day and to express it and stand by it throughout the planning process.
