Linda & Darioush Married!

On Saturday I was so excited to join Crissy Farah and Rowena Curtis in documenting Linda & Darioush's wedding. The wedding was a truly cultural experience with a gorgeous Persian ceremony and a rockin' reception on a yacht in Marina del Rey. Both families were so fun and excited about the marriage, it was a joyous occasion for all!

The bride was absolutely gorgeous. Here she is getting ready for her big day!

I loved the shoes! She was worried that they weren't photo-worthy but I think the graphic print was such a fun addition!

Because it was my first time shooting a Persian wedding there were amazing details that in the sofreh that I had never seen before. I couldn't believe how elaborate everything was!

The two families seemed truly overjoyed to be joining together. Here is the bride's father hugging the new addition to his family immediately after the ceremony.

There was a LOT of family to take formal photos with after the ceremony so there wasn't a huge amount of time for the couples portraits, but we still managed to have a little bit of fun with them before the wedding. This is one of my favorites!

We got up on the top deck of the yacht to catch a little bit of gorgeous sunset light before sailing.

The groom's father gave a great toast welcoming Linda to his family.

And if you can say anything about this couple and their families it's that they know how to have a good time! They were smiling ear to ear all night (which is definitely what I like to see!) and tearing up the dance floor after dinner. A great time was had by all!
