A signature Modern "Sofreh Aghd" in paradise

Around two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of doing a one-of-a-kind Sofreh for Gisel and Omid Kordestani on the Island of St Barts. From the moment we heard from the well-known San Francisco based event designer Robert Fountain about this wedding, we knew it would be such a special experience. And we were so honored to be chosen to be a part of it! Our sweet bride and groom wanted a very upscale, modern Sofreh Aghd that was still complete in tradition and symbolism. They also wanted to be sure that their Sofreh had pops of color (red, orange, green and purple) without it being too overwhelming. And so, even though we had a very short time to put this together, it was such a fun project and we loved the challenge!

Situated inside a pool in a very modern Villa that was overlooking the ocean, this unique Sofreh Aghd included a pair of amazing Baccarat crystal candelabras and a vintage modern-style venetian mirror. The mixture of our traditional silver dishes with our handmade modern symbols, crystal and glass, set the perfect tone for this Persian/French destination wedding. And the custom made flower arrangements made it complete and perfect! Congratulations to the lovely couple! We were so pleased to be able to see your reaction and be a part of your beautiful day.
