Aleah and Vafa [Michigan wedding photography]

They met at her best friend and his brother’s wedding near Dallas last year. A fateful missed flight resulted in their spending an entire day together and 363 days later, Aleah and Vafa had their wedding at the charming Waldenwoods resort in Michigan. They were surrounded by friends and family who had traveled from across the US and abroad to celebrate their union. Seeing the beautiful bond between Vafa and Aleah that exudes a palpable joy, you can’t help but wonder how many silver linings can come out of life’s little misfortunes. I’ll try to remember that the next time I miss a flight. Congratulations dear Aleah and Vafa! Wishing you a lifetime of unexpected blessings.

Florence and Oliver [bay area wedding photography]

Flo and Oli. She unknowingly captured his heart  with her “true, genuine and from the heart” Facebook posts (the deep, thought provoking blog entry-like posts) and the relationship that ensued revealed a certainty that they were perfect partners for creating the life they both dreamed of together.
If a wedding is ever an indication of what that marriage may be like, I would venture to say their life will be full of love and so much giving. The outpouring of love expressed by these two families hailing from New Zealand and Mauritius permeated throughout the reception. The wedding itself came together like a perfectly arranged bouquet by the hands of their friends who could move mountains for their Flo and Oli. Simple, yet rich in its detail, cool and cozy, streaming from stories to laughter to music to dancing, Flo and Oli’s wedding was a night none of us present will soon forget. May the marriage itself carry on in the same spirit for years to come. Congratulations, Flo and Oli!

Kate + Erfawn [Texas wedding photography]

In a lush, flowery pocket of Lake Grapevine known as Paradise Cove, Kate and Erfawn brought their loved ones from various corners of the globe (as their guestbook/world map demonstrated) to celebrate their union on their wedding day. Melodic prayers and poetic verses were recited as the sun descended on the horizon. Words of counsel from the Baha’i Writings resonated with those gathered and created a vision for the beautiful life Kate and Erfawn would create together:

Let your hearts be like unto two pure mirrors reflecting the stars of the heaven of love and beauty.
Together make mention of noble aspirations and heavenly concepts.
Let there be no secrets one from another.
Make your home a haven of rest and peace.
Be hospitable and let the doors of your house be open to the faces of friends and strangers.
Welcome every guest with radiant grace and let each feel that it is his own home.
Live in such harmony that others may take your lives for an example and may say one to another:

‘Look how they live like two doves in one nest, in perfect love, affinity and union.
It is as though from all eternity God had kneaded the very essence of their beings for the love of one another.’

Congratulations Kate and Erfawn! May the vision expressed in these verses forever be your reality. On this day, we saw the glimmerings already.

Ashley & Kilian [destination wedding photography]

It had all the elements of a traditional wedding in El Vendrell, a Catalonian town south of Barcelona. The colors, the flora, the austere civil ceremony hall, the town baker’s cake and the neighborhood florist’s bouquet. And then it had what El Vendrell had never seen: a wedding at the Museu Deu and a Baha’i marriage ceremony, both a first for the town. El Vendrell had also probably never seen a bride and groom stroll through the city center market to the florist to get their flowers and then stop at the jeweler around the corner to pick up and exchange their rings on the way to their civil ceremony.
Like a perfectly set mosaic, Ashley and Kilian’s wedding combined the traditional and the unique into wedding art. Music performed by friends and family, prayers and scriptures of love and counsel, and the Sardana (Catalonian folk dance) followed by some ’70s feel-good music and grandfather’s poetry. Every bit an expression of who they are and the love that their families create. Felicitats, Ashley i Kilian!

Mojan - Negeen, oh my gosh. These are all brilliant. No collection of wedding photos have ever given me goosebumps like these have.

Absolute favorites: With coffee cups in window; serious in front of flags; sweeping dress and blue wall; painted musicians playing for bride.

GOOSEBUMPS.

N - Every time I look at your wedding photos I want to get married all over again so that you can picture our special moment!

negeen - @Mojan, the gorgeous wedding invitations that you designed set the visual concept of the wedding and I just carried it through with the images. Thank *you* for the inspiration. That’s two for two. (:

Shomayseh & Arta [Destination Wedding Photography]

From the gracious welcoming of their guests as they arrived at the venue to the laughter and chit-chat they shared with friends before the ceremony, Shomayseh and Arta brought the intimacy and warmth of a living room wedding to a charming Ontario country club overlooking scenic gardens and sprawling green fields. Love when simple and heartfelt turns extraordinary.
