Persian-American Wedding at Estancia Hotel, La Jolla

I worked with Natalie Bray and second shot this gorgeous Persian-American wedding in La Jolla, at the Estancia Hotel. This was my first Persian wedding, all of the cultural traditions were so magical to see. Anna and Marcus and their family were so fun, I have never seen so many people on the dance floor having the time of their life. It was truly special.

I hope you enjoy seeing moments from Anna and Marcus’ beautiful day.

Sofreh Aghd or the table of wedding is an elaborate floor setup for the wedding ceremony loaded with foods and another items. It was so beautiful to see the amount of time and thought that went into creating this spread.

These were roses made out of pita bread and a beautiful design created with spices and grains!

This part of the ceremony, some special women in Anna’s life gather her and sprinkle sugar on the couple to sweeten their marriage. So special!
