We were blessed to travel to Washington DC for Sheila and Ali’s gorgeous wedding and we absolutely loved every moment! Every detail of their Persian wedding was absolutely stunning and that only added to the love they shared and that we were able to capture of their special day! We had a great time shooting their “day before” session with them on the stunning steps of the Library of Congress! Even though the storm was rumbling in behind them, the rain held off until after the last click! We all got back in our cab in just the nick of time!
Shelia and her beautiful bridal party of ladies got ready inside their hotel room at the St. Regis Hotel, where the ceremony and reception were both held. It was a gorgeous suite and made for a perfect backdrop for their first-look that day! We love their photos! So much fun! After a little break and some relax time, we headed down for the ceremony!
We loved every moment of the beautiful traditions and and all the family participation in their exquisite ceremony and got some sweet photos of Sheila and Ali as they officially became man and wife! The Sofreh Aghd (the wedding spread) was exquisite! They brought in a coordinator from Texas to bring all the items together into a beautiful spread like we have never seen before!
After the ceremony everyone moved into the gorgeous reception ballroom area that was lit with beautiful purple and orange uplighting with soft candle light bouncing off the walls! It was a fairytale reception full of celebration and dancing! We loved being a part of the crowd as everyone danced the night away thanks to an amazing persian DJ! Those guys kept that party hopping!!
All in all, it was an amazing experience for us and we were so blessed and honored to be able to capture Sheila and Ali’s stunning wedding with their families! Congratulations Sheila and Ali!!!
