Take me back to Parastou and Ali's ultra romantic and culture filled wedding at the Darlington House in San Diego, CA! This was such a wonderful day and I am loving re-living it through all of the gorgeous photos.
Parastou reached out to me with only a few months to plan her wedding and was absolutely wonderful to work with! Initially, she was incredibly stressed out about the aesthetics and didn't know how to 'dress up' the Darlington House in way that wouldn't feel like a backyard wedding. She loved the uniqueness of the venue and it's garden vibes, but needed to find a way to make it fit with her Persian culture. Let's just say, we made the perfect team and were truly able to balance the multifaceted nature of her wedding.
Come the wedding day, Parastou looked absolutely stunning! I loved her natural makeup, side hairstyle and gorgeous lace gown. The best part? The removable off the shoulder sleeves. It was so simple, but made it feel like she had two different looks.
Once Parastou and Ali were wedding day ready, it was time for their first look, and I have to admit that this might have been my favorite part of the day! Not only was is gorgeous, but it was such a special moment between the two of them, in which they privately exchanged vows. They loved the American tradition, but didn't want to add it into their Persian Ceremony or recite them in front of all their guests.
