The Persian "Royal Wedding" of 2011

This year was the year of the Royal Wedding(s). First there was England's William & Katherine. And then the US had it's own sort of American Royal wedding when Kim Kardashian & her husband Kris wed. And finally, we at "Sofreh Atelier" were involved in an Iranian Royal Wedding!

This was the wedding of Saranaz & Chris which took place at the Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown, DC. Our lovely bride Sara is a relative of Iran's royal family the Pahlavis. With the queen Farah Pahlavi, her son Reza Pahlavi and his wife Yasmine as the witnesses to the aghd ceremony, this wedding was truly special. And it was very fitting for the bride and her sweet mom Ladan to request a very traditional Persian Sofreh Aghd. We had a great time designing it and seeing their reaction. It was also a great pleasure to work with photographer extraordinaire Clay Blackmore of Clay & Co. who incidentally shot the wedding of Kardashian mom Kris to her husband Bruce Jennar 20 years ago! Here are some of the pictures him and his team took of the Sofreh and ceremony!
