Wedding ~ Megan and Amin Part 1

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of coordinating Megan & Amin’s wedding.  We worked together from start to finish putting together the smallest of details.  Megan and Amin were an amazing couple to have worked with!  Congratulations to you both, I know that you love each other dearly, it is obvious with every look you give one another.

Taking place at The Virginia Cliffe Inn in Glen Allen, VA on a day threatening rain, Megan and Amin pulled through with high spirits and smiles and had one of the most beautiful ceremonies and receptions I’ve seen in a long time.

This veil is part of the traditional Sugar Blessing where women from the family are invited to bless the couple and sweeten their marriage with pressed sugar sticks rubbed above their heads.  It was a very special thing to be able to witness

This was a unique wedding ceremony part Christian and part Persian. This is a shot from the traditional Sofreh Aghd which is a spread set out with traditional and symbolic items to bring good luck to the bride and groom

The guest book table- this held the favors which were little baggies tied with cinnamon sticks and cardamom seeds, a traditional spice used in Persian cooking and desserts

Their Quaker Marriage Certificate.  I did help design this item, see a former post on this here.  It reads:

“On this date in the presence of our family and friends, we took each other by the hand and promised to love, support and accept each other for as long as we shall live”  the line below, for family and friends reads: “and we, as members of this loving community, set our hand in witness to this union”
