A Sophisticated Persian and Jewish Wedding in Sodo Seattle

A chilly but gorgeous sunny afternoon in February was the backdrop for Samira & Dan’s wedding day. They were lucky enough to get amazing pictures outside with all the great murals around the Sodo area of Seattle and the perfect weather. I love how elegant they looked with very industrial backgrounds. The bridesmaids looked so amazing! They had different dresses in a neutral, blush palette. Samira’s dress was one of my favorite cuts. A high neck and cap sleeves…so beautiful.

Samira’s family was working hard when we arrived on making the Sofre Aghd table just perfect. Sofre means spread and Aghd means ceremony. It smelled so good with all the fruits and spices. Behind the table where Samira & Dan would sit, we hung greenery down the drapery, it turned out so elegant. Samira walked down the aisle by herself, which I think was a first for my weddings. It was very important for Dan & Samira to include both a traditional Persian and Jewish ceremony which made it so unique. One of my favorite moments was their dancing down the aisle after being announced as husband and wife. Loved that, everyone cheering and throwing petals.

They had long tables for their reception. We kept it simple, elegant and light. Canvas Event Space is very modern with white walls and cement floors. With white linens and champagne table runners the candles and white and neutral flowers looked amazing along with the splashes of gold in the votives, chiavari chairs and flatware. I love how simple it all looked, but very sophisticated. Some of the tables had long flower arrangements and the others had floating candles in cylinder vases with greenery at the base. It almost looked like everything was glowing.

This was such a gorgeous day for the sweetest couple and their families. It came together so smooth with a fantastic vendor team! I am so happy I was a part of this gorgeous day!
